I wanted to keep using what they used but i want to change the oil my self. Should i go with the synthetic oil or just get the regular oil and change every 3000 miles.
Also my oil monitor says the oil is at 50% and its still green.. should i still change it?
Change it. That oil is your break-in period and it's just a good idea to get rid of any contaminants early.
Ford Motorcraft is a Conventional/Synthetic blend, thus the 5k intervals. Personally, I use Royal Purple full synthetic but that's just my preference.
