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?

I couldn't edit my original post. Here's the data from my second oil change. I used PUP 5w20. I have not ever had to top off the oil.

There's a lot of nice progress to talk about in this sample. Copper has improved, and other metals have come
down a bit as well. Copper is still just high enough to mark, but another improvement like this next time should bring it
right down in range. Silicon might take another oil change or two to get there, but the progress is appropriate so far. The
TBN read 6.5, showing lots of active additive left in the oil. No fuel, moisture, or coolant was found. We guessed by
"5W/20 PUP" you meant Pennzoil Ultra, but let us know if that's not right. Nice progress! [/quote]

Wow, 6.5 TBN after 7400 miles in a Turbo. PUP is good stuff - looks like you can go longer easily.

It is a great engine. Expect that with any oil.

It was averaging 45.5 combined since new. I've recently installed the FRPP Suspension and went from 185's to 195's. Could be that my right foot is a little heavier though! I don't mind as it make this little car the perfect balance of economy and sportiness.

If it were mine, I'd have another crack at MC...but it's not, and you are on a good thing with the PUP.
