A month ago, I finally bought a Ford Mustang. Found a lightly used 2019 with about 10,000 miles on it. It has the 2.3 liter 4-cylinder with turbo. I've wanted a Mustang since I was a kid back in the 1980's and foxbody SVO's were something I drooled over. On to the point.....

Upon getting home from my exciting purchase, I changed the oil using a new Motorcraft oil filter and Motorcraft 5w-30 semi-synthetic oil. I have used this oil on several vehicles over the years. No issues with it at all, but this is my first turbo engine with direct injection. I tend to drive "spirited / hard" most of the time. No track days or anything like that.

Is this oil adequate for Florida temperatures, motor type, and my driving style if its changed every 5,000 miles?

What does the owner's manual say? Don't Mustangs take 5W50?

The Motorcraft 5W30 Synthetic Blend at 5,0000 mile intervals will work just fine.

5w-30 per the manual, 5w-50 is for the V8 engine.

Seems like a high strung turbo would make better use of it than a lazy V8.

Over 300 horsepower from 2.3 liters? Seems high strung to me.

Rotella gas truck is a thicker 5w30, readily available, and still has the rebate.

5W-30 is just fine for the average owner. I'd choose a quality synthetic.

While the Mustang ecoboost engine is not a high strung or high revving engine, it does achieve significant rod bearing loading under boost. It's good to know that the Focus RS, which also has a 2.3L ecoboost (many claim it's not the same engine, due to very minor changes) of the same engine family, the Focus RS makes a bit more power and requires a 5W-50 oil.

If you are so inclined, there are available mild tunes for your 2.3L that will solve many of the strange operational quirks and provide an amazingly more pleasant (and powerful) experience.


People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.

Maybe another one for M1 0W40 if the VVT likes it.

I wouldn't hesitate to try Valvoline Advanced ( not modern engine)

That was the best OTC Wally-World 5W30 I've have run.

It actually ran like a real, well formulated synthetic.

Great power, luggability AND Gas mileage all wrapped up.

That the best you can hope for.

Wonder why you changed the oil when you got home?

Wasn't it clean? Was there operational issues?

Guys always say on here " well I dont know what they put in there so, Im going to change it,

That is really nonsensical.

Enjoy that car! Ive been seeing those used for around 17K sounds like a deal - if you want a pony car.

Gotta kill the fake engine sound if it has it. How stupid can Ford be?

Me, I'm more of a Lotus or Alfa 4C guy. Found them to be MORE fun.

Don't they have a limited list of participating retailers such as Blaines, TSC, etc? No Amazon, Wal-mart, AAP, AZ, etc, correct?

I alternate my '18 between PP and M1 5W-30 every 5,000. Doing great, no consumption.

Motor craft makes a great filter.. cant go wrong with that. As well motor craft oil is good, how come a synthetic-blend? I think you would benefit more from a full synthetic, and there is not much of a cost difference for the benefits.

Check for rebates or look for specials... even super tech synthetic performs very well. I have a napa auto near me and always stock up on their full synthetic which is just rebadged valvoline when they run sales. 5qt jug @ $18.99
