Will this oil hold up on a 2.0 L Ecoboost engine?

It is what Ford recommends. It will keep the parts seperated as good as any other oil.

The only problem is Walmart quit stocking it in the 5 quart bottle. You have to fork out for individual quarts. That might cost more than a 5 quart bottle of full synthetic.

Yes, in that case I'd go for a jug of Castrol Magnatec 5w30 full synthetic for $17.88 right now and regularly $19.88 at WM. But prob cheaper than buying separate quarts of MC.

What SatinSilver said. The last time I checked, the above mentioned Castrol was about $0.50 cheaper than the 5qt. jug of Motorcraft. Another good oil in that price range is Pennzoil Gold.

Yep. I would change it every 3k if I was you. If you go full synthetic, change it at 5k. Turbocharged engines don't need the lazy a%% long intervals

Itís a good oil and there are multiple high-mileageís trucks (posted on truck forums) that use it on Fordís maintenance cycle without issue. The only problems I have with MC oil is the price and availability. Itís a good oil, but we donít see too many UOAs on it because of those reasons IMO.

no more than 5K. I get pulled off my line work to do oil changes sometimes and 95% of ppl come back at 5K which is what we put in the stickers. The 2.0L's oil is always very very dark compared to the 1.5,1.6, and 2.5L. I'd sick to 5k max.

I always wondered why they went up on price.

It used to be the best bang for the buck many years ago.
