I used Schaeffer 9000 5w-30 in my 5.0. Of course it was prior to the DI version. YMMVWhich brand of synthetic oil 5w20 [I live in Cal.], with a excellent volatility, would be best in my 2018 F-150 5.0L engine. It has GDI and PFI fuel delivery and plasma wire arc transfer cylinder liner for 2018. I do not haul loads or pull loads, mostly a grocery getter. I use 93 octane. Thanks for any help.
I used Shell and Castrol for 60+ years. Then I read Wikipedia. I use the cheapest I can find that has API and ILSAC6 certification that matches my owners manual. ..except Supertech is not eligible. Review YouTube for oil filters..I have WIX/WIX -xp(NAPA GOLD/Platinum and Purolator One/Boss on the shelf. Oil? SVP or Napa(Valvoline) when on sale. My ride; 2005 Pontiac Montana SV6 3.5L 185000 semi abused miles .1QT every 2800 miles..lifters quiet as a mouse. Trans ok (luckily) ..serviced at..150000 miles(what I drained was as clear as WHITE VINEGAR..!!!?) . Parts Master filter (my fault), 5qts Valvoline Dexron III-H/Mercon. Now putting drain in the pan soon ala Honda. Next change probably will be ACDELCO Dexron VI..from RockAuto..$4.50?/qt.Which brand of synthetic oil 5w20 [I live in Cal.], with a excellent volatility, would be best in my 2018 F-150 5.0L engine.

Something must have changed since the days of my old BMW then, at the time BMW stated that the replacement Alusil blocks were much more expensive than the Nikasil coated ones they initially used.no it runs about half the cost, at least on a large scale. porsche only uses it on their turbo engines whereas everything else is some form of al-si
I don't think it was. From what I had heard the DFSO reprogramming fixed it.Could be because of the TSB that I linked to earlier.
A .080”-.150” thick wall cast iron liner provides much better durability in an aluminum block than a .002-.003” spray-on iron coating as the thick wall liner makes for a much more stable/robust cylinder wall and head gasket sealing area.it's just a really thin layer of iron, a modern approach to the plasma-sprayed "ferral" cylinders in some old porsches. cast iron sleeves are terrible for cooling and have poor durability, manufacturers have been trying to get rid of them for half a century. PTWA has a good chance of displacing outdated al-si and the famously expensive nikasil
SuperTech 5W-30 synthetic and a SuperTech filter changed following the OLM. Meets all the specs you need. Less than $20 every 10k.
Additionally, no need to run 93 octane in that truck. No benefit at all. Use regular and sleep well with extra money in your pocket.
The 2021 Ford F-150 with the 5.0, the recommended oil is 5W30. I wonder why that is?
We already know, PWTA has been in production in the GT500 since 2011 and in the GTR somewhere around the same time.sleeves can be be more easily reconditioned and are easy to remove (when not cast in) but when it comes to wear nikasil is king, no question.
how PWTA performs long-term in the real world, we’ll find out
Did not know that and I’ve worked on a few of them... maybe I should read the shop manualThere actually is benefit, as the 12:0:1 Gen 3 5.0 relies on knock sensors to continue to advance timing until knock is detected. The Gen 3 5.0s do make more than their rated power on 93 octane.
Not mine. I have a 2019 that is using oil. They did the TSB and now I am working with the dealer to get the engine replaced. First oil change used 4.5 qts in 5000 and then they did the TSB and it went to about 1.5 qts the next oil change. Current oil change has used about 2 qts in 3200 miles. Not good...I don't think it was. From what I had heard the DFSO reprogramming fixed it.
That said, I am not sure why they wouldnt run 5W-30 in any 5.0 regardless. With the amount of RPM's they can spin and the the need to spin them(torque comes in higher) it seems like a no brainer to me.
Mine pings a little on 87 octane at low speed and it shifts from 4th or 5th. You can hear it ping when it lugs the engine a little after the shift.There actually is benefit, as the 12:0:1 Gen 3 5.0 relies on knock sensors to continue to advance timing until knock is detected.

Agreed.If it were mine I'd use Mobil 1 ESP 5w30. IMO ESP is the best oil XOM has to offer.
