As long as you had the service done at the proper times, I don't see there should be a problem with the warranty. I would not accept anything other than Ford is going to repair it..

Using the oil that's in it now should not and absolutely IS NOT grounds for voiding the warranty. If that's the only thing done to the car and you did the motor oil and oil filter change correctly you have nothing to worry about. Besides, who can prove that the oil itself was the cause of a spun bearing? No one! Because that almost never happens.

EDIT: I should've asked, how many miles are on the current fill of oil?

Just put the recommended weight of Motorcraft oil before you take the car in. And don't volunteer any information! Tell them that your engine is making a strange noise, and nothing else.
It is perfectly acceptable to change your own oil, but you should always keep the receipts,
I don't think that you will have any problem with them covering this under warranty.

My car had 31K miles and i had a rod bearing break. They never asked me for service records they are giving me a new short block engine at the moment hope for it to be done by this week. It sucks *** but just gotta talk to them make them feel its their fault like an engine failure and not your fault. And just in case change the oil so they don't make a big deal out of it. And if you have hookups in a shop or with somebody that does oil changes for you if they ask for maintenance reports just ask them to help you out if you know what i mean 👌🏼 goodluck bro i know it sucks
And as far as rebuilding it would be more expensive, buying a new used engine would be your best bet. About $4500 for engine and another $1500 for engine. OR look at your insurance policy and see if they cover engine or transmission failure. That would be your last bet.

You're fine.

You used 5w-20 which is what is required for the car. It doesn't matter what brand it is.

As long as you're not tuned, and you changed the oil at the recommended intervals then you're fine.

No need to switch the oil out in your car. Give it to them as is. They will be more suspicious if they see fresh oil.

I just wouldn't mention you changed the oil yourself, can't void the warranty (which I doubt they would anyway) if they don't know that

Am I missing something here? 5w20 is what is recommended for our cars. Why are you tweaking out? Take it in and get it covered. Why would they void your warranty?

No the guy Nate said at the beginning of the thread Mobil 1 will void the warranty that's why I was asking should I change it . And I'm wondering because there is no proof of as when the oil changes were made the can use that to there advantage I'm tweaking out because for the past 3 years it seems like I take 2 steps forward to get thrown 3 steps back

Mobil 1 will absolutely not void your warranty.

You don't keep any receipts for oil filters or oil?

Definitely a good rule to live by.

Quick question: what oil filter were you using?

EDIT: Also, what makes you think you spun a rod bearing?

I'd did some search today and I found a guy on a thread here and I have the same exact symptoms he was having he didn't know what it was though then later in his thread he found it was the rod bearing ...... Then my friend stopped by my work a couple hours ago he's a bit of a mechanic . He pulled out the stethoscope and said it was definitely coming from bottom down there

They can't void a warranty because you did it yourself.

They'd have to prove that you screwed it up somehow, and an oil change is really hard to screw up.
