I noticed a drip of oil in the driveway under my 2018 Ford Taurus with 8100 miles. It is leaking on the timing cover, I bought the car new had it for 10 months, I changed the oil one time. I install a premium guard oil filter and 5w 30 do you think Ford would bother to test the oil and blam the filter for the leak to void warranty?

What engine? If it is the 2.0EB timing cover leaks are not uncommon.

Take it to the dealer for warranty repair. The oil filter not being a Motorcraft will not void the warranty.

Take it to the dealer. This should be covered under warranty.

That's just not the way it works. This BITOG paranoia runs so deep here even people who do everything right are afraid of warranty work denials.

LOL they forget (or never knew) that dealers MAKE MONEY on warranty work. Maybe not as much as non-warranty, but profit nonetheless.

I know the dealer don't mind doing it, but I know the warranty company may ask for a sample.

If it bothers you that much just go and grab a motorcraft filter from walmart for $5 and screw it on. But either way, you won't have any issues.

This right here. Worked for Ford years ago, and unless something has drastically changed that the indie world hasn't found out about, I've never heard of Ford warranty wanting an oil sample. Even if that was something they did, it would make no sense to sample oil for an external leak. The only way I could see them denying coverage is if the filter you installed was leaking.
