    full synthetic to semi?

    How do you argue that with someone who builds them

    full synthetic to semi?

    Yes. Direct injection until the PCM commands it to spray port side

    Seriously the only difference between the 2.7 engine in the F-150 and Edge is intake manifold, throttle body, exhaust manifold and intake tubing...oil pump drive possibly too. Which goes for all the engines! The blocks and heads are drilled and tapped with the same oil galleys, injector holes and so on...unless you have the H.O. EcoBoost engine like in the Raptor. The only reason that everything you read says its for the F-150 is because that's Fords bread n butter.

    I'm sorry...as of 2018 all ford EcoBoost engines have dual injection. They call something else like dual fuel

    Any direct injection engine will have a problem with carbon build up on the back side of valves. But all EcoBoost engines went to dual injection in 2017...not just the F-150

    Actually you are correct. They did go dual injection starting in 2017...which i have to admit im a little jealous since mine is a 16. But after seeing what a catch can collects instead of it going back into your engine...I'm going to basically put one on any vehicle I buy new from here on!

    We're not catching oil like your BBQ grill

    Lmao! Ravioli can. No! I've got the JLT catch can. Easy install and removal if you're minimally mechanically inclined

    Also mine is still under warranty...i take the catch can off before I take it in for warranty work just so they can't give me an excuse to void my warranty

    The motocraft semi synthetic is what was made for it so it won't hurt a thing. Its cheaper to buy your own oil and do it yourself...just make sure to stick with the motocraft oil filter

    Exactly right! Turbo engines are harder on oil! Changing your oil before 5000 miles is cheap insurance for your engine. I drive 50 miles to work one way...15 miles are side roads and the rest are highway. I used to run Mobil 1 but now I run rotella...both full synthetic. I also have a catch can installed. Mine is actually a 2016 Sport. The oil life percentage has never been below 30% when i change it

    I don't care what oil you use...I would never take any of them over 5000 miles!

    How long did your original battery last?

    4 years here too. I replaced it due to object sensors randomly telling me something was there...but there was never anything there that should have made them go off. Im glad I did too cause my buddy that ran the battery relearn process and reset the keep alive memory said there were some codes that came up about voltage errors...or something along those lines

    HELP!!! Pop/clunk in front end!!

    I have a front end noise that sounds like the front end is about to fall off when hitting very small bumps. Everything seems tight when doing all the checks. My next try that I haven't done yet is to put it on the rack with the tires up...then have someone run it while I listen underneath

    You have a rodent problem. I had bird seed behind mine when I kept the bird seed in the garage. Mice, chipmunks or red squirrels
