No make up oil was added and the IOLM was at 40%.

This is a modified DI engine (2 injectors per cylinder) so the fuel dilution doesn't surprise me. Wear metals are really low for only the second change since new. I agree with Dnewton3 that fuel dilution is an occurrence rather than a problem at this point. However, I am low on 5W-20 oil but have a good supply of 5W-30 for my 6.8 V10 so I may try the 5W-30 next change. I don't see wear problems in the Ford DI UOAs here but the cam phasers may be happier long term on 5W30.

The truck is a step up from my 2011 in nearly every way. The only thing I don't like is the transmission. The 10 speed was a joint effort between GM and Ford. GM must have done gears 1 thru 5 and Ford did the rest. Cold shifts act like the drive shaft is going to fall out. Once it hits 6, it's flawless. Warm, everything is happy.

Changing oil is not maintenance. Maintenance is the science of inspecting equipment to find and fix things before they break.

What did you modify on your 5.0?

There is a tsb for harsh shifting. Take it to the dealer and they will reflash the pcm/tcm and it will shift smooth as butter every shift. Mine is a lot better since I’ve done it. But if you are modified maybe talk to your tuner and have them sort it out.

Nice report. The low viscosity worries me some but it doesn’t seem to be affecting anything. I’m using Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 0w-20 with a Fram Ultra and I’m following the iolm. First change was around 6k and it seems to be tracking about the same for me using the monitor.

By "modified" I am referring to the dual injection setup. I should have referred to it as Gen 2.

The moderate dilution on these engines causing lower viscosity is why I am currently doing a 50/50 mix of 5W-20 and 5W-30. I may ultimately go to 100% 5W-30 if mine gets out of hand.

Ok. So it’s actually a stock gen 3 coyote then. They all have dual injection now. You are on the right path. Wear numbers are low and declining each change. Nice job. Keep the uoa’s coming.

Looks good; really good for only having about 9k miles on it. Break in will continue to come down I suspect.
I will enjoy seeing the UOAs as this engine ages.
Continue on!

Interesting about the 10spd trans. Hope it does not cause issues long term.

The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

It has been tested with a 5W20. If dillution is a issue Ford would have recommended 5W30. A 100C viscosity of 7 is still a 20 grade.


make the inside of your engine oil cap white.
don't use.

Looks good for a new engine, especially the factory fill. I'm a little surprised about the fuel dilution, being a DPFI system. I thought maybe they would lean heavy on the port injection unless there was a need for a lot of power. Do you have a lead foot? grin Obviously I don't know what strategy the engineers are using, but I didn't expect to see the fuel in these.

Thanks for posting. If I get a new 5.0, I have something to go on with your data. Does it still take (about) 8 quarts or have they bumped up to a 10 quart capacity (like the Mustang)?

You sure do have a lot of faith in Ford. Wish I could get to that level.

I would not necessarily call moderate dilution (2 -3%) an "issue", but depending on operational/environmental parameters I could see an issue in the making.

Does this "new" engine iteration have a HP fuel pump similar to the 3.5L EB? Mounted in the valve area and driven off a lobe?

Good question...I have no idea. The 2011 5.0 was a clean installation. The 2018 has vacuum tubes running over the top of the engine: tees, elbows, clutter. I do notice that opening the driver's door when the engine is cold triggers something that sounds like an electric fuel pump. It clicks six times but we haven't tracked it down yet.

Where do I look for the HP pump? I envision something like a small block Chevy crammed against the block in an inaccessible location.

There is a secondary air induction that you can hear closing when you close the throttle, I assume that's located in the intake somewhere as well. Also, I have the delightful auto start/stop. My routine is "start truck, shut off s/s, put in gear".

There's a lot of complexity added for an incremental gain in fuel economy. Fortunately I plan on never doing engine work on this thing.

I do occasionally stand on it but for the most part it isn't pushed hard. My hard acceleration is usually passing on two lane roads...typically 45 or 50 mph up to 70 and back down.

The oil pan capacity is allegedly 9.9 quarts. Measuring the exact fill, running it for five minutes and letting it sit overnight results in the dipstick showing it's down about a half quart. I will probably just add 10 next time.

Better check your manual before you dump 10 quarts in it. My '18 5.0L specs 8.8 quarts.

Well the ones on the 3.5EB engines are mounted on the rear of the driver side valve cover.
The 1.0EB engines have it on the valve cover as well.
This is because those HPFP are driven by a cam lobe.

Youtube again ... there's a way to defeat the auto S/S function by adding a jumper in the switch. Keeps you from having to deactivate every time.

everything from changing the programming to easy hard-wire jumpers
