Re: which oil

Motorcraft filter and Castrol syntec, 5w-30 (2008 V6)

I always go with the Motorcraft filter b/c the dealership said that it is one of the best filters at making sure that oil is always on top of the motor. Helps keep things moving and it won't allow parts to wear out as quickly.

BTW, they told me this for my Explorer Sport b/c we were having problems with her start right up. They also told me this when I bought my Mustang.
