First oil change on 2014..QUESTION

Hey guys so i finally got to 5300 miles and the dealer said to change the oil at 5000 miles. There is a sticker too.

I was wondering because they said to change the oil at 5000 ...did they use synthetic oil?


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?

Personally, I would wait the 3000, then go with Synthetic. With the right filter, you can go a good 10,000 miles before changes. I run it on all of my cars and have done so for many years.

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.

See, and my dealer said to go the full interval for the first oil change.

You're going to get a million different answers to this.

The oil in the car from the factory has things like extra zinc, which is a soft metal, to help seal gaps during the break in period.

You're not going to do anything wrong by doing a 5k mile change or a 10k mile change.
