I run my car like a two dollar hooker no mechanical problems I just let the dealer change it, double check there work though. 16,000 miles 5 oil changes, on average I've been paying 45 bucks.

I've changed the oil on every vehicle I owned. As long as I keep paying the 45 and they don't break stuff ill keep going to the dealer.

Wish mine was golden! Ha. Ran it pretty hard on two track days... And about 5k on the street. Royal purple. Was very dark but still consistent viscosity and slippery...ness(don't know if that is a word).

I usually go 3k-5k full synthetic.

I was the old school paranoid guy who did first change at 1k. (I did and do drive her hard everyday) Full synthetic at that and since.

I've never had an issue burning/loosing oil between changes.

I'm old school also, bought my car with 870 miles on it, got payments and total price where I wanted them, then battled for half an hour to get them to change the oil before I would sign the final price agreement.

I changed mine to Mobil 1 at 1100-1200 miles. Usually every 5k after that. I have almost 5k on the car now so it's getting close to time again. Usually I use Royal Purple but am gonna go this route for a while.

Changed the factory sludge out at 1500 miles. Been running Royal Purple 5w-20 ever since. Haven't lost a drop either.

This is a great point that many overlook. I use royal purple now but used mob1 on my last car. I think there performance is about the same, it's more a preference thing I think. I started with royal so I will stick with it but that's the only reason I don't go back to mob1.

So since this topic is up, what happens if you over fill the engine? I am pretty sure the last time I had Ford change the oil they over filled it. In what way will this affect the car?

Motorcraft OEM oil filter... Never had an issue and it is what they use when using motorcraft full synthetic.

At some point I may switch to a different, but the oem filter is good.

So. Technically no as long as you have receipts/ proof you kept the schedule.

With that said, I've had dealerships try to not cover a warranty head gadget blow because they said I didn't follow the maintenance schedule. Ironically I did... With them. They said it wasn't in their system. I had the receipts. So they honored it. If I had done the oil changes myself, I would have absolute needed receipts.

I personally do my oil changes sooner than recommended... So every other one I let the dealership do it so they can't give me crap as that is still on the "official" schedule.

No.

Just make sure you use an oil that meets the API and weight requirements.

No any lube place that is certified can do it. It doesn't have to be done by a dealer. They can always check to see how dirty the oil is to determine if it hasn't been changed in a long time etc.

I think this is the most intelligent comment on his thread (not to say that everyone else doesn't have good information). It's most important to make sure that it is changed regularly.

With that said, I was getting lots of blow by (either out of the pcv system or past the piston rings, not sure which one but probably from the pcv system) with the motorcraft 5w20 full synthetic, upgraded to 5w30 and now I have very little, I do not smell the burnt oil in the exhaust nearly as bad as I used to

Mobile 1 isnt the best oil on the market, its marketed as such but its not. I use it but it performs for what I need and works good (I dont want to change now lol).

Amsoil and Royal Purple are two good brand to also consider.
