Slightly concerned with the iron in this sample, and the low TBN. I assume it was still from breaking in though given the low km on the engine. This would be the 3rd oil change on the truck. I did two shorter intervals(2500 km, then 7500 km) then this full interval following the IOLM. It was changed at 1%. The run had a variety of truck duty. Several 1/4 mile passes, -30C to +30C weather, towing, daily driven with short trips typically. Fram Ultra filter used which looked perfect when I cut it open. Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 5w-20 was put back in along with another Fram Ultra.

Break in metals; to be expected. Half of all your total km's came in this one OCI.
Fret not, stay the course, no problems here.

That's a full cycle on a new motor. My experience has been Ford motors continue to drop wear metals until you get around 15-20k miles (24-32k kilometers).

Canadian winter, drag racing & towing - the oil did quite well IMO. Good post.

I was always wondering that people paid $40k+ for a new truck, but try to squeeze $0.01 extending OCI over all limits. TAN is more than 2 times higher than TBN - what we are talking about? Who cares about iron if it less than 150 ppm? Oil needed to be changed 5000 km before!
Greedy always pay twice...

If it was my truck and with what I would call extreme weather conditions in Edmonton, I wouldn't run the oil past 7,500 kms.

But hey, not my truck or my money.

I would think that the oil life monitor would be able to determine if it's "severe service" and adjust accordingly. I've upgraded to the fram ultra filter. And using Pennzoil platinum for added protection. Ford says to follow the monitor, which will go up to 10k miles or up to 1 year. And that is using conventional oil. This sample was only 7 months. And it was cut short by the iolm to about 8000 miles rather then the max of 10k miles.

I've had doubts that the IOLM on Ford gasoline engines was anything more than a mileage counter, but I guess maybe it does do some calculations. I'm glad to see that.

As was mentioned in other posts, it's a new engine shedding some extra metal. When you factor in the use of the truck and where/when it was being used, the higher numbers seem like a non issue at this point. See what it looks like after a summer oci and with the break in metals subsiding.

It is not just a mileage counter. It would take into consideration colder temps during the Edmonton winter. Mine counts down faster in winter. And when I stored my F150 5.0 for 4 months last year, the IOLM lost 20% when I restarted it, without putting on any mileage during storage and without starting the engine during storage. I follow the IOLM with Pennzoil yellow bottle (which meets the Ford 945 spec) and change at 5%. No trouble or significant oil burning in nearly 100,000 miles.

This is a new truck that has (essentially) 14k miles on it, with the last 7.5k being only it's third OCI ever.
And this new truck is seeing some drag racing, etc.
THIS UOA IS A COMBO OF BREAK-IN WEAR AND SOME SPIRITED DRIVING!

Some of you are Nervous Nellies for no good reason ...

So what? Oil does not care about lyric and reasons, engine does not either. Oil is severely overrun. Period.

Keep in mind too that there was absolutely 0 top up oil. It stayed within the hash marks. So this was a pretty accurate run on that oil. I could have topped up a little here and there maybe a cup at most. May have refreshened the additives a bit and shown a higher tbn and lower tan.

What, pray tell, makes you think this oil is "overrun"? (My presumption is that you're being specific to this UOA, and not making a general statement).

It's too early to know the specific wear trends of this particular engine. But we do know that "new" engines will shed break-in metals. And that's what we see here.
So it's your statement that 7.5k miles is too long here? Or that if he would have changed oil sooner, the wear rates would have been different?

Other than the Fe and a slight bit of Al, there's nothing to indicate a cause for concern. Vis, FP, contamination all well in line with expectations and at desirable levels. What is "overrun" about this lube?
