11-14 Oil Selection

Guys,

What brand oil is everyone using and are you going semi synthetic or full synthetic if so why.

I purchased a new coyote recently that has 60 sum thousand on it and the previous owner never took it to the dealer for oil changes, so I'm looking to start fresh.

Royal Purple, full synthetic. Why use anything besides the best?

What he said? It's no more expensive than paying someone to do it and use semi syn. Might as well pay the same but get the best.

Royal purple is garbage oil. If you want the best, get Amsoil or Redline.

It's just over priced for what you get...all those advertised "additives" it's all just a scam for you to spend more money.

Not a huge difference in most Full synthetics, but some brands are a little better...Mobil 1, Amsoil etc.

But without a doubt go with a full synthetic...I use Mobil 1

Yup. RP is just like any other. Don't buy into the hype they sell you.

So it's just as good as any other top tier synthetic?

What's the issue with everyone if the above is true?

whatever full synthetic that's on sale....

you will find lots of opinions/preferences and maybe a few facts but probably won't find any evidence of motors failing from any Ford recommended/qualified oil choice. Low oil motor failures yeah so change it and check it and you'll be good

So after they put RP Full Synthetic Oil in and a Ford Racing Oil filter, I am getting a weird tap tick noise under the car that was never there before:

Any modern oil, changed at reasonable intervals will protect your engine for a long time.

I read the reports from oil testing. Amsoil 10-30 was the best oil. It had the least breakdown after 5000 miles. But I want to stay with the original 5-20. The best 5-20 was Redline. That's my pick.
There was no comparison between the Redline 5-20 and anything other 5-20. It performed way better.
If your car is a Track-Pack, and you run the 5-50, you will have to read up on those.

I change my oil + filter every 6 months, motorcraft synthetic blend 5w20. Cheaper and frequent oil changes beat full synthetic + longer change intervals, in my humble opinion.

The ticking is normal to some owners after an oil change, still speculation as to how to fix it.

I just use Motorcraft 5W-20 synthetic blend with a Motorcraft 500s filter changed once a year. Car runs great with no ticking or oil usage.

Trans sounds way better in the hot days after sitting in 45 minutes of traffic with the Rp. (Manual)
With the factory oil when it got hot I could literally hear every gear turning as I excellerated in the cabin, it wss very distubing.
I dont hear anything now with RP, it's been over 2 years and was the only reason I went with them, it seems to deal well with the heat very well Imo. No real difference in shifting/performance but my trans never had issues (one of the lucky ones I guess) after the Barton bracket swap so I can't say it improved anything. I will stick with it on the next oil change.

Can't tell any difference with the diff, it's just what the installer used when I did a gear swap.

I go with Motorcraft 5w20 and filter at the dealer every 3000 miles / 6 months. Never had low oil or any other issues. Oil usually looks clean still when getting it changed.

Since we are talking about oil, I have a question. I have two vehicles, my wife has a '14 Explorer Sport wich uses 6qts of 5-30 and My GT that uses 8qts of 5-20. Is there something negative if I use 5-30 on the GT instead of the 5-20?

No you'll be fine as long as it's a good synthetic
