You will probably get a bit of fuel dilution (my '18 5.0L does) unless you regularly and consistently have long periods of at-temperature operation. To combat the unwanted (to me) viscosity reduction of a pure 5W-20, I use a 50/50 mix of 5W-20/30 of the same brand. Probably winds up on the boarder line of a 20 - 30 grade at temperature.

No way I would go 5 - 6,000 miles on the factory fill.

Congrats! I just got my used 18 (in sig) two weeks ago (though I just got it back from the dealer today after one week due to a surging, rough idle issue).

I'd run the factory fill as per manufacturer requirements.

The filter...maybe consider this: Filter Better filtration, higher flow, but more expensive.

I started a thread about 5w30s for the 5.0 (which sort of devolved): 5w30 oil

I don't know if you're going to do your own oil changes, but I'm considering this item so I don't have Exxon Valdez #2 on my driveway: Drain valve

Post a pic!

Use the recommended grade 10 quarts it a lot of oil and there are very few failures despite what talking heads on the web say.


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

I failed to mention that I have the 10 speed automatic. I do recall reading about the issues with the manual build quality.

My 2018 f150 w/ 5.0 just turned 10k over the weekend, have not noticed any oil consumption. I have rotella t6 5w40 in it now and will probably keep it in for about 7500 and send in a sample for UOA, Im curious about fuel delusion. If you follow some of the mustang boards Rotella 5w40 is commonly used. BTW, check out the Ronin drain plug for your next change.

I know Motorcraft filters are made by Purolater, but haven't seen much on them having holes...I thought they were fairly robust but will do some research.

Is your comment on the PPMs in new engines specific to the Coyote, or just in general suggesting dumping at 1K due to break in materials?

I think that is a smart thing to do. I have a 2014 Mustang GT that I bought new. While I have not had any engine issues, I did have several issues that were warranty issues and I fought with Ford on two of them with one of them never getting resolved since they blamed me for the paint defect. One the other defect(Radio screen was delaminating) they also tried to blame me for causing the damage and it took four months of fighting with them to finally get them to replace it. I've never had as much problem with warranty items as I've had with Ford.

Honda wouldn't replace the armrest in my FIT ( a known issue) They said I was putting too much of my weight on it.

It was poorly molded and thin and the door card would just break through.

Garbage. You have to go to the service manager or gen manager/owner to get satisfaction many times.

I had to get the regional rep involved for the radio screen and what really [censored] me off was that they came out with a service bulletin about this issue on the Mustang and some other Ford vehicles right before I first took my car in for this issue. I didn't find out about the service bulletin until the end of the four months and is what I used to finally get the regional guy to replace it. What is even worse was that this part was only about $100 retail because I asked the dealer in case I had to end up paying for it and they fought with me over a lousy $100.
