I purchased this truck certified used with 15K. Paperwork from dealership said they put Motorcraft 5W-20 in the truck, manual calls for 5w-30. Dealership promised it was a type-o and regardless it would not be an issue. Results confirm it was the 5w-20. Wear #'s show it didn't do any harm but do not consider this a 30wt that sheered, it was the dealers error.

Replaced the oil with Castrol Edge 5w-30, will probably go to 7500 mi and pay for the TBN next time. Was not concerned with TBN on this early change.

I tow my boat on weekends with this truck (about 3000 lb) and live in Houston. 100 Degree's is what this truck lives and breathes daily. All driving done with 87 octane and works great, no noticeable power loss with 87 octane.

I'd try Magnatec next time and save a few dollars.
Of course with an Ultra.. Enjoy!

If I was trying to save money I wouldnt have spent the $28 on a report.. All kidding aside, Magnatec is hard to find at wallyworld. They seem to carry all the weights except 5W-30 on the shelf and non of the new Magnatec synthetic formula.

I actually bought the edge from Homedepot, used my Military discount (10%) and paid $28 for 6 qts out the door. That includes the extra quart for $7.

Congrats on a nice report. Silicon seems high but engine is still new. Note that my 2013 F-150 5.0 needed a new air filter change about 22k miles. The fuel mileage went way down, that's how bad it was. You might want to check it just in case. The OE filter is very short. I replaced it with a Wix that was twice as tall so it had twice the surface area.

I'd take Mag over about anything to be honest. Price aside.
I use all grades. Great oil. You can buy it online and at great prices shipped.

You would run the magnatec over their flagship Edge oil? Really wonder the formula difference, don't think the magnatec has the titanium in it..?

I seen it do very well in someones eco boost with 10K oil changes reliably. No other oil that people have posted in this engine have come close. Personally I will not run a semi-syn oil with the prices of syn being only a couple of bucks more.

Yes the Magnatec 5W-30 has been full synthetic for many months now. About a month ago, I bought two jugs of it for an oil change. My local Walmart was trying to be sneaky because they put two jugs of the blend out in front of the two rows of 5W-30. I just moved them, and grabbed two jugs of the full syn.

Castrol Mag seems to be able to take one heck of a beating and show great results! Runs quiet too!

Nice report, nice engine. Ford borrowing that hybrid CG iron/aluminum engine block construction from the 2.7L European diesel was such a good idea for them. Should prove more durable than the 3.5L


Scambling for solutions is a hopelessly futile endeavour and potentially dangerous, without first coming to a solid, personal understanding of the problem. Beware riding the ideological hobby horse.

Nice report OP, that iron at 9ppm in 4,500 miles shows the MC 5W20 did fine even if not the correct grade.

I like your next oil, Castrol Edge, I'm sure it will look after you fine.

Has there been a problem with the 3.5?

It's up for interpretation, but I haven't seen a 2.7 do this yet...
