Pretty happy with this. I changed the oil at around 12 months, indicated oil life remaining in the instrument cluster was 5%. Motorcraft FL-2062 filter.

Car has not been tracked, but I beat on it pretty hard sometimes after it's gotten up to 190 on the oil temp gauge.

It looks fine I was expecting a lot more break in noise but this looks like a engine which is easy on the oil at least if you don't regularly track it. Under these conditions I recommend you follow the iOLM.


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

Just a heads up, Ford changed the filter for the 5.2L to a FL-2087 within the past month or so.

You barely move the car.

Thanks for the post, but um, 190 deg F is not hot. The engine coolant temp is 210 F. smile


If you want the job done right......do it yourself.

Thanks! I'm guessing the IOLM is going to trip once every 12 months, which is fine by me.

I have given this engine a thrashing a time or two, but generally I'm easy on it and don't rag on it when it's cold.

Huh. Looks like that is indeed what 2019 GT350's are coming with. Too bad I already have two of the FL-2062's on the shelf. Good thing they were only $5. Thanks!

Isn't a daily driver. It's a fun car. For weekends and such. Have you heard of those?

Thanks for the post, but I didn't say 190°F is hot. I said that's the temp that I get it up to before I beat on it. 190°F is where the PCM opens up the redline to the full 8250RPM in this particular vehicle, so it's the point at which I decide it's okay to beat on. This car has an external oil cooler and the oil lags behind the coolant quite a bit. The coolant gets to temperature several miles before the oil does. As a matter of fact, if you drive the car on a cold day the oil temperature will pretty much never get to 190°F. Even on a 70°F day, you probably have to drive about five miles before the oil gets up to 190°F.
