This may have already been known, but page two is new to me. NO 10w-30 CK4 oils can meet the new xxx171F1 oil requirement.

They came with 10w30 from the factory. The 6.7 did.

So they have a blanket statement that NO 10W-30 meets their spec, but then give you this huge list of ones that are approved? I'd not want to own a brand new one of their pickups right now, I feel like there is no way to weave through this without "getting it wrong" somewhere.

I suspect all those oils are CJ-4...they do not specify.

So they stand by the previous statement.

Unlike Delo and their bSDE, Rotella cut the FA (CK/SN) and the CK down the middle, dropping the gas cert and not recomending their diesel oils in gas engines. Some may say otherwise, but I did not see anything out of line when comparing T6 from the CJ era to the current non-gas approved T6 (CK), considering the margin of error for oil analysis.

The letter was printed BEFORE the approved list was published to include 10w-30 CK-4. As long as one refers to the approved list before changing oil there should be no worries.

Won't stop some as saying "use the oil" (that doesn't meet standards) with confidence!

Suspect you did not look at the list. Quite a few CK-4 oils in that list, and 10w30 ones to boot.


Freedom is not about having the choice to do what you want, but the choice to do what you ought.

This is the kind of rubbish I'm talking about. They clarify something in a bit of a logical fashion. They basically acknowledge that they are concerned about dual rated 10w-30 options. We BITOGers know those face the reduced phosphorus limitations. Fine.

The last paragraph is a real kicker, though. Although perhaps technically following warranty requirements for Ford gasoline engines, and their own specifications, I suppose every VW, Mercedes, and BMW gasoline engine on the planet is at huge risk for using an oil without the Starburst on the front of the bottle. Mobil is wrong about their Delvac recommendations. Shell's stance on their MV 5w-30 is obviously a moment of madness on Shell's part, too. And, I'm terribly doomed.

I guess a CK-4/SN oil, particularly in 5w-30 or 10w-30 and following E6 and ILSAC type phosphorus guidelines, somehow magically doesn't have enough phosphorus for Ford diesel engines, yet has too much phosphorus for gasoline engines, all at the same time. That's a pretty neat trick. I'm still unsure how 800 ppm phosphorus in PYB is okay for gassers, but 800 ppm phosphorus in Rotella 5w-30 is too much. Next time Ford wants to hand out oil memos, it might be prudent to have them written by someone who actually understands the API regime, at least nominally.

Once again, as time marches forward, Ford turns the clocks back.

Its what I say about these engineers. They may do a good at designing and engineering products. They supposed to be the guys that know better than use. But I believe that the people in the oil industry, some BITGO people understands oil then some engineers do. They may be on behind in what they know about oil.

I'm not even wanting to be too hard on the engineers, but obviously there's some gap in even basic understanding. I'm wondering how much of it is marketing and lawyering, as it were. Between them having an E6 lube on their previous list and now blaming low phosphorus, and that hideous last paragraph, someone in Ford has really risen well above their ability.

So you are saying they previously approved a low phosphorus oil or ZDDP and now they are blaming that for premature valve train wear? I am not studying this extensively, but I questioned the whole "you can use a CJ-4 oils, but not a CK-4 oil without are approval". If there is a lawyer or lawyers involved, we sure could reduce his/her or there credibility. A good lawyer would say that Ford would need to drop any requirements for using any API diesel ratings with a C, because they are backwards compatible.

This is looks like it has become a big mess. I was told that Ford is issuing "provisional" approvals based on how close your CK-4 formula is to your CJ-4 formula. I believe they are also developing an engine test which will be released at the same time as their new Motorcraft oil (listed in this letter for Q1 2017) and that new formulas will be tested and if they pass they will get on the official OEM approval list.

I'm sure this will all blow over once they have an actual test in place. But wow somebody really got their pants in a wad and piling on top isn't helping.
What's that saying - it's better to remain silent and a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt...

Yes, Delvac 1 LE 5w-30 was, in fact, the only Delvac 1 product with the Ford spec with the "E" suffix. Now, low phosphorus has them in a knot. And I agree with you completely. Ford isn't making an even remotely credible argument here. They use the API regime, but all of a sudden, they want to exclude backwards compatibility. Ford worries about low phosphorus for all Ford engines, including past ones, yet have a low phosphorus lube on the previous list. They have a very tenuous grasp on the concept of which viscosities and specifications are actually required to have lower phosphorus.

Solarent: I think their last paragraph removed a lot of the doubt you mention. wink Clearly, Ford needs to find a bigger lubricant partner, someone who will really hold their hands through this mess and explain things to them. The next person writing a memo for them really needs to read a lubricant handbook first.
