Hi. These are the results of my first oil change in my 2014 fiesta 3 cylinder. Wondering if I should have done a shorter OCI.

Blackstone comments:

When it comes to the first sample, it's not unusual to find some higher metals and silicon. The metals are from new parts wearing in and getting acquainted with one another and the silicon is from sand casted parts and harmless sealers used to put the engine together. It might take a few oil changes to wash this stuff out, but eventually, your samples should look better than universal averages, which are under construction since these are new engines and we haven't seen many samples from them yet. The TBN was strong at 4.0 so try 8K miles next time.

Is the presence of more manganese because of engine parts coated in manganese phosphate?

You did fine by changing your factory fill when you did. Just follow the factory recommendations and you will be fine.

Wow, that's really not bad for a hard-worked turbo engine on 5w20
Looks like the factory fill did good for those miles thumbsup

Wow that's a good analysis! Not bad for a turbo charged engine. Just keep doing what you're doing with the 5w20 and that engine will last a long time my friend.

Impressive UOA IMO. The engine appears to be very easy on oil, especially for a turbo. Keep it topped off and follow the OLM. Looks like Ford has a 3 cyl winner.

I just got a 1.0L Ecoboost, only 300 miles total so far. I'm thinking 5,000miles for first change. What oil/filter did you put in it?
