Motorcraft oil is made my Phillips?.

You all know that Motorcraft does not make oil but only brands oil. Last I heard ConocoPhillips was the manufacturer, e.g. Same as Kendall, which are both very fine oils, btw.

F106S, Fumoto F106S Valve W/Short Nipple M14-1.5 Threads
LC-10, Lever clip for F-Series valves


Just making sure I have the right parts. Itís 3 items correct? The valve , the hose and the clip for the valve?

Thanks

I drove close to 20,000 miles in 2018 with 3 oil changes. I have a Melbourne 24k with the diesel engine. The first time I took it into Mercedes they told me 10,000 miles would be ok, they use the Mobil 1 full synthetic and claim it doesn't break down like regular motor oil. As you can see I still try and change it a bit more often than what they told me, I would rather spend a few bucks and be safe.

X2 Engine Oil, filters and antifreeze are the life bloods of any engine. Neglect one and it's big $'s

In full agreement with you jwheibe! After early in life of putting in over 3 million miles in Semi Trucks, then later depending on my patrol car to run 80-100 mph or idling for possibly a hour at a time working accidents I learned diligent P.M.
"Take care of your equipment and your equipment will take care of you" Taught to me by a very wise man!............... Thanks Dad!

We picked up our 2017 Greyhawk just before Christmas. As soon as we had about 3000 miles, I went ahead and changed the oil with Mobil 1 and a Ford filter and even a new drain plug. We are around 6500 now and have two more trips planned for this month so will likely change again once we get to 7500 or so.

It was pretty easy, with the leveling jacks raising the engine up so I could slide under. Just have to remember the oil shoots out at quite a nice angle when removing the plug! Made the mistake of placing the drain pan under it instead of off to the side.

Thanks i plan on doing the 1st oil change this weekend. Figured it was best to not let the original oil sit until the spring even though it only has 1600 on the odometer.
