If you read that somewhere it was not from a Ford engineer. Or else it was an engineer that had no idea what he or she was talking about.Thank you for explaining it this way. I read somewhere that the Ford engineers said Xw40 or Xw50 weight is too heavy for the lifters on this engine but 10w30 is fine. I don't drive like a maniac. The way I drive, the RPM rarely goes above 1500. Sometimes when there's no traffic at night I floor it for a few seconds just to clean out crud. (That always gets my heart racing!)
I'm going to stay with the 10w30. Like others have said, it's done a great job so far, and I'd like to put off a timing chain replacement as long as possible.
Thank you, everyone!
If it were true imagine the carnage that results from anything but a hot start.
