Motor Oil thread.

What oil do you use and why? What is the best oil for our motors. I am going to change my oil for the first time today, and was curious what you all are running.

I'm guessing a search would bring up several threads on this topic.

Pennzoil Platinum. Looked at reviews on bob is the oil guy and based on test its better then the so great mobil 1. I used it one time in my old car and it went from using no oil to 1qt every 2k. Ill never touch that over priced crap again. Its also the thinnest synthetic.. i like thicker

You should be running motorcraft filters. Using universal oil filters is no good. The motrcraft has the thread end bypass which Ford recommends. On cold starts you are causing premature wear. Never mess with oil filters. You have Ford you run motrcraft. You have GM you run ac delco and so on.

This is for powerstroke Diesel engines with cartridge filters but it still explains why you should always use Oem filters because of patinents other companies have to make the filters may not allow proper oil flow ect.. Motorcraft Power Stroke Diesel Filter Comparison 2.0 - YouTube
