    Another ford 5.0 with issues. Well, not the engine this time but the transmission connected to it. A 2016 with 128K miles and tranny issues. Doesn't tow, just drives 90 miles a day round trip to a work site. Dennis Leary is a liar.....

    Should is the operative... not many keeps vehicles like many here.

    As a loyal EcoBoost guy, I too change my oil before the computer says and run either Motorcraft SemiSynthetic in my 2.3 EcoBoost on my Ranger, or Mobil 1 on my 3.5 EcoBoost.

    I also think a high quality filter is really important, some of the value oil change places use a very cheap filter. I personally like the MotorCraft, KN, or Mobil 1 filters with the anti drain back valve.

    Cam phasers do need clean oil and mileage will vary depending on type of use. 5-7k with synth should be good.

    Any more than that screws with the cam phasers. Simple concept, but tight tolerances.

    I had a 3.5l go out at 56k miles because I followed oil change interval.


    Now I am 5K with mobil 1 religiously, might go valvoline vr synth just for a change.

    I am at 118k now and no problems, i drive it like stole it so my gas mileage ***.

    Platinum plugs last almost forever.

    Same issue, cam phasers. My understanding is the 5.0 was not designed with them. Ford is trying to retrofit that block with them. The oil passages in that engine do not support them properly, so they fail. The resolution to it is there is a conversion kit that eliminates the cam phasers and variable timing. It them becomes the original design and the reliable 5.0 is back. But, adding this voids the warranty. But at this point this particular 2018 truck has 79K on it, so it doesn't matter.
