    Agreed. I've done 2 oil changes; one at 3K miles to change out the break in oil and one at 9K miles. Both times used Motorcraft Full Synthetic 5W-30.

    Yeah I've been doing Mobil1 0W-40 European Blend for my BMWs. I thought about looking for Mobile1 0W-40 for the Raptor, but just did Mobil1 5W-30 along with Mobile1 Filter. Changed at 1500 miles and will keep changing every 5000 miles.

    Next one I plan on doing a filter relocation and Fumuto Plug...I'm still cleaning up oil from the first change. Terrible engineering.

    I am guessing engineers have never done an oil change before, because if they did, they would at least mount filter vertically. Making drain plug opening larger would be an added bonus.

    I used Amsoil and I know it sounds stupid but I feel a difference. I have always used Mobil 1 still do in my Vette but thia oil was recommended from several friends who have Raptors...

    In drive, press the + or - on the shifter or pull the paddles on the steering wheel.

    then you can lock out gears startinf from 10 down as far as you want.
