well yesterday i used 20w50 royal purple fully synthetic and a k&n filter. i have used filters before and they work great. thanks tho
Have to disagree. This filters are like $14 a piece and they do not filter any better than Motorcraft for $10 cheaper. I have ran this filter and seems to work the best with store brand oil. 20/50 is a pretty thick oil which can cause starting issues. I've ran 10W30 in mine and I'm at 154k with no issues. Don't waste your money on expensive filters, just keep it changed every 3,000 miles.

If your motor is in good shape, using a 20W50 could be harmful to the motor under normal street use; instead use a 5W30 or a 10W30. However under extreme hot conditions, a 20W50 would be OK to use.

I've been using Mobil-1 10W30 along with Purolator oil filters for many years with great success. Like others are saying, change the oil filter every 3,000 mi.
My thoughts exactly. A $40 oil change on this car is a simple waste unless you're racing. $10 does the trick for me and she still runs perfect with 154k on it.
