    5W30 Oil

    Does anyone run 5W30 in the summer? I'm thinking about 5W30 Mobil 1.

    After using pure Dino-Oil for the first couple changes...I've used this ever since, with the standard Motorcraft Filter

    You "feel" the difference because you want to "feel" the difference. Since you just spent money on the upgrade you "have" to feel the difference

    I'm looking to eliminate the double pump process I have to follow right now to get the pedal hard

    Motorcraft 5/30W full synthetic during warm months. Castrol 5/30 50/50 during cold months.
    If you have a working relationship with a local Ford dealership (IOW, spend money there), service department could have excellent prices on lubricants and filters. They buy that stuff by the pallet and drum. Best prices I found for MERCON V and full synthetics were at the local Ford store.
    Motorcraft PH2 oil filters have a stop drain valve. Don't know about Wix but most others don't. Walmart.

    Exclamation

    Chico Baravelli... Motorcraft PH2 oil filters have a stop drain valve. Don't know about Wix but most others don't. Walmart.
    The correct Motorcraft oil filter part # is FL-820-S.

    PH2 is the part # of the FRAM and should not be used. There are several TSBs put-out by other auto makers noting issues with FRAM oil filters and voiding engine warranties due to its drain-back valve (which is rubber/nitrile).

    Motorcraft oil filters have a heat resistant silicone anti-drainback valve. Other quality oil filters that also have this are: WIX, and NAPA GOLD | SLIVER (which are made by WIX)

    What gdmjoe said. My bad.
    However, There is a Fram on my car because I did a Seafoam before and moly after the oil change. It will come off after 300 - 400 miles and a FL-820-S will go on.
    AIR, Chrysler issued a SFB because oil pressure sensor failures and sometimes oil shop techs would let spring valve seats drop into black oil buckets and not know what they've done.21213

    I run 5W-30 Walmart full synthetic year round, change it every 5K, and I ONLY use Motorcraft FL820-S oil filter. I have a cheapie catch can I made from a Harbor Freight air compressor oil separator, which fills up very slowly.
