Yes another oil thread

I'm almost at 2k miles on my gt and i'm changing the oil. after doing a lot of research i was going to use the old pennzoil ultra but it's sold out and not being produced anymore (on bobtheoilguy the new formulas suck vs the old). Now i'm looking for something else to use. I want a full syn oil what are your opinions?

1)not using motorcraft
2)no amsoil

Have you checked out Driven synthetic oil by Joe Gibbs Racing? They claim it is designed specifically for the Coyote motor. (It's available in 5w20 and 5w50 as well as other weights).

I use Mobil 1 extended mileage 5w-20. Doesn't seem to burn much if any and I have no strange ticks like some.

I was warned multiple times to wait until it was really close to 5k rather than change early.

Who warned you and why? There is no special additive in the stock oil and motorcraft shows a lot of sheering by 1500 miles

I called the two nearest dealers in my area, and they both said to not change it until 5k. They said that that is what Ford wants and changing early could result in a voided warranty. Trust me, I wanted to change at 1k, but they talked me out of it really quick. I guess it could just be a matter if opinion, who knows...

It could void the warranty? This isn't directed at u at all. That's a load of ****. Honda puts a special addictive in their oil so I understand that but they use normal 5w20 motorcraft. There would be no downfall to changing it. It also says nothing in the book about it either

I agree with what you're saying. However, if a problem arises, those are the dealerships that I'll be going to, so I had to listen. 😔

I'm old school when it comes to this. I would rather get the break in stuff out of there. I understand your situation. They wouldn't know I changed it anyway. Unless its in writing I'm going for it. This is way better oil. If something happens to the engine it was gonna happen anyway

Thanks for the heads up though

If it is 'break in oil' it should be left in for proper break in? Ford engineers should know, they designed/made the motor...no?

Tried to get my oil changed early and was strongly urged by the service writer to wait to atleast 3000 miles or 6 months. Said there was a something special for the shavings...

It's all under warranty, and as far as I have seen a large number of people who changed oil early have ticking. Plus that's what the oil filter is for.

Why would they have me wait when the could have made money just changing the oil rather than advising to wait. I don't see how it would benefit them. Nothing in the manual says to change early.

if u think those people changing their oil early made a tick youre crazy. there are ticks popping up on people on their third oil change when they used nothing but motorcraft and got it done at teh dealer. there is NOTHING special in the factory fill

it's because most of the people on these forums changed their oil early hence why a lot of people who did it had ticks. from what the people are reporting that's the cause of the ticks i dout it's from changing the oil

I have a track pack and it calls for 5w50... Only kind I can find that has that is castrol edge full synthetic. I'm sure I could order online but that's crazy. Doing an oil change with it today. Haven't heard any bad but haven't heard much of anything at all about their quality so hope all goes well.

Your owners manual calls for 5w-50? Why would a car with track pack call for a thicker oil when it's the same engine?

The only reason it should call for thicker oil is if it has more bearing clearance which as far as I know there are no changes to the engine?

Don't know.. Oil cap and manual has a specific sheet for the track pack. 8.5 quarts instead of 8 and 5w-50 instead of 20. Couple of differences as well.

I'm a member of BITOG too, good stuff on there.
-I have always used Mobil1 Extended Service because its easy to find. 300K+ on the green Mustang with using it, no problems.
-Amsoil Signature Series would be my preference
_-_ I used to use K&N or Mobil1 oil filters exclusively but now use Motorcraft.

Clearances are all the same. It calls for 5w-50 because of what Ford thinks the car will be used for. Road racing.

So for those who don't road race, no need to use 5W50 weight with the trac pac version. Isn't that correct?

Then again why would someone spend money on getting a trac pac option and not road track race it? What is the point of that? Seems silly to me! 😎

Correct no need to run 5W-50 if you're not tracking the car.


And I'm sure that at least 95% of guys that get the track pack don't track their cars.

The .5 qt extra would be because of the oil cooler I assume.

Makes me wonder if one would be better off running the 5w-50 in the summer if you do a couple occasional trips to the drag strip as well.
