Although Ford recommends their own brand of oil, with a religious 3- 4k oci schedule, what type of results long term can I expect in my 2.0l Ecoboost engine? Thanks

The Motorcraft oil will be fine. For that matter any quality 5W30 blend or synthetic will do. Personally, I do 5,000 mile oil changes in mine. I intend to begin running Valvoline Synpower 5W30 exclusively. I will not recommend an oil filter. I will tell you that FoMoCo ships these cars with a filter that has a base end bypass valve.

You car comes with Fordís Intelligent Oil Life Monitor. You can do your oil changes by it or you can do them at whatever mileage your are comfortable with. Thereís been talk that itís designed for 10,000 miles. I donít feel comfortable in going by it. I just change the oil and reset every 5,000 miles.

Last week I sent to Blackstone a sample of Motorcraft 5W-30 I ran from later August till early December in our 2.3 EB. I fell short of the 5,000 miles OC I wanted, it was 4,275 miles, this was due to wanting to change it myself and the very cold weather was imminent within a day or two. I have to change the oil outdoors. I'll post the UOA as soon as I get it.

Bought my Buick Encore with 50K on the odometer from a Ford dealer with this oil. Oil stayed clean looking for the first change, which I pulled at about 4K since it wasn't Dexos and they hadn't reset the OLM. Much cleaner than following changes with Maxlife-- don't know whether that's a good or bad thing.

When Firestone was using Kendall it was my go to cheapo oil change on a '13 Rio. Liked the oil a lot and might still be going there if they hadn't changed to QS. I generally think all Conoco-Phillips semi syns are great values.

It has a turbo. Go for 5k OCI at the extreme most.

It's a good oil, but I'd just go full syn with rebates and save money with better oils...

Would not so good after market filters be just as good if not better than the Motorcraft oil filter? I think most have a bypass valve, not makes a base bypass valve better? I bet a lot of aftermarket would have that too.

Why would you stick to a 3-4k OCI? Even under sever service a 5k OCI is plenty sufficient and there is plenty of evidence to suggest under normal service 7.5k or greater is fine. I've yet to see a UOA on these engines that suggest you need to keep your OCI's short. Nor have I seen any BITOG user back up their claims that you can't go past 5k on an OCI. Yes they have some fuel dilution but the wear metal numbers never show that it is an issue.

I used Motorcraft syn blend 5w-20 on my 7th gen Honda Accord V6 and it ran like the Charles Dickens. Nowadays, I use the dealer's Honda full synthetic 0w-20 and guess what, CP makes that too, what a deal. Remember when MC jugs were 12.98 and prices like that?
