Just did an oil change on Xmas eve with Motorcraft synthetic blend 5W30 and motorcraft filter. The truck starts better and runs better I think. I WAS using Castrol GTX High mileage and a Fram filter, but after the comments and proof I've seen of Fram, never again.

It is just simple common sense........if the manufacturer calls for 5w20 it would be silly not to use it. Motorcraft 5w20 blend is a STEAL at the auto parts stores.
I may be out of line but wouldn't the engineers at Ford, GM, and Chrysler know what oil to spec for their engines?
I thought this was the 4 cylinder section?
