Oil Change

So im up for my next oil change, last time i did my oil change i put 5w50 motorcraft with a ford racing filter, my engine started to do a knocking sound, changed the oil to 5w 20 motorcraft with stock filter, kocking went away instantly, learned my lesson.

Now out here in Miami its hot, always hot, and will be hot forever!

Should i stay with motorcraft 5w20 or change brand not thickness, which was most likely what made that sound on the engine.

What about filter? Stock or ford racing?

I'm in Tampa and run 5w30. That's what Ford recommends no matter what the temp is. I just use a royal purple oil and a Ford filter

If you have a new mustang you should run the recommended 5w20 oil.The newer mustang engines have so many small lubricating channels.If you used a thicker
oil in the oil change thats probably why you had engine noise.If you want to increase
your time and mileage between oil changes use synthetic oil.It is more expensive,but
is the best for your engine.

Well,there all good, but most important is proper viscosity as stated in your owners manual.Also what you get the best deal on.I usually have always done my own oil changes,but being under warranty I just take it to my stealership.

5W50, your lucky you didn't lock the motor up. As stated above, there are small misting channels that require the lighter weight oil. This motor is a completely new design, the 4.6 is not even close.

Glad it didn't mess anything up. Why would a dealership even have that oil. That's what air cooled motors run.

AM has great price on RP. Free shipping and with the forum discount it's hard to beat. I run RP oil and a RP oil filter. No complaints.

False info here. Using thicker oil is not a problem. Please don't spread info on things you know nothing of.

The Trac Pac cars use 5w-50. The difference in the engines between the trac pac cars and yours is absolutely nothing. They are exactly the same. Ford specs 5w-50 for the trac pac cars for what they deem how the car will be used.

Lock up a motor? Seriously? There are no small misting channels. Trust me. I use Amsoil 10w-30 along with many others. No problems.

The reason why Ford switched to 5w-20 oil years ago was to meet tougher cafe standards and for gas mileage. Nothing more.

Show me. I'm sure you didn't understand what you read and I'm not saying that to be mean. I've got the magazine. Tell me the page you read differently and if I'm wrong I will publically apologize to you. Trust me I'm not wrong.

March 2010 will do us no good because the trac pac is new for 2013. Read this thread and check out the oil cap in the first pic.
2013 GT now takes 5w50?? - SVTPerformance

The 3rd post says the oil squirters were removed in 13, that's what I was refering to.

That's still up for debate as I've seen a 2013 that still had the oil squirters. Regardless the trac pac cars as evident by the oil cap call for 5w-50. No difference in engines between either one.

Almost responded the same (albeit with less specific knowledge). I have a track pack and the 50 is recommended because they expect me to track it and already have their mpg avg from throwing the 20 in the majority

Ozzy, surprised the pinging occurred when you went UP to 50, I was under the impression this occurred if you went too low

Damn oil threads,...I run 5w30 on my roushcharged 5.0 during a cruise. When I track I put in 5w50. Put whatever you want to in your engine sump, if you prefer 20 weight then use 20 weight. If you prefer Gatorade then put Gatorade in.

Yes. Tomato juice is a great lubricant. Most real mechanics like me know this. It's hard to be so smart sometimes.

I run mine with a 50/50 mix of roofing tar and yogurt. Seems to work well. Oil temps stay down and no valvetrain noises whatsoever. I just got a new additive I'm going to try, I believe it's sand. Hopefully that frees up a few ponies. If not i will go back to elbow macaroni or playdough. Hopefully this trend catches on. Glad I could help.
