    Why motorcraft oil and oil filters???

    WHY MOTORCRAFT OIL AND OIL FILTERS


    In July 2006, Ford Motor Company announced Model Year oil change intervals (chart below). Regular oil and filter maintenance is essential and can not be stressed enough.
    Vehicle Specifications Normal Operating Conditions Special Operating Conditions*

    Size Model Miles Maximum Days Miles Hours
    2007 Gas All (except 3.5L) All except Edge, MKX & MKZ) 5,000 or 6 months 3,000 or 3 months 200
    2007 Gas 3.5L Edge, MKX & MKZ 7,500 or 6 months 5,000 or 6 months 200

    * Refer to the Scheduled Maintenance Guide for details on Special Operating Conditions.


    MOTORCRAFT OIL


    Complete line of engine lubricants provides exceptional performance in three critical areas:
    Fuel Economy - engineered to reduce fuel consumption over time
    Engine Cleanliness - reduces sludge and deposits that rob engine performance
    Engine Wear - protects critical moving parts
    In addition, Motorcraft engine oils are certified to the highest current levels:
    ILSAC GF-4 certified
    API SM and CJ-4 rated




    MOTORCRAFT OIL FILTERS


    Help screen out unwanted abrasives like carbon, sand, dust and bits of metal before they can get into the oil and wear out the engine.
    Meet OE specifications and are engineered and designed specifically for Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles.
    Provide the right fit for Ford, Lincoln or Mercury vehicles.
    Have as many as 12 high-quality components.
    KEY HIGH-QUALITY OIL FILTER COMPONENTS
    Steel Cases Ironed for a precise fit, fluted to ease removal and painted for rust-resistance
    Pressure Relief Valve When it's cold outside or if the filter becomes clogged, oil flow through the filter can be reduced. If this happens, the relief valve opens to provide a continuous oil supply. Its design also minimizes the chance of contaminated oil recirculating back into the engine.
    Anti-Drain Back Valve This feature keeps oil in the filter to prevent "dry starts" after your engine has been turned off. It's made with specifically formulated material that resists the aging effects that an engine's heat can cause.

    Efficient Filter Media Re-engineered media increases Motorcraft filters' dirt-collecting capability, allowing them to capture more engine-harming particles than ever before.



    MOTORCRAFT QUALITY ADVANTAGES VERSES AFTERMARKET OIL FILTERS


    Motorcraft Oil Filters Aftermarket Oil Filters
    Anti-drain Back Valve
    o All Motorcraft oil filters have an anti-drain back valve
    o Top selling Motorcraft oil filters utilize silicone anti-drain back valves for higher heat resistance


    Center Tubes
    o Motorcraft filters have perforated steel center tubes that withstand pressure surges and prevent leakage
    Easy Removal
    o Motorcraft filters utilize a Rotunda flute design for easy removal
    Quality
    o Motorcraft filters have well-bonded end plates and consistent pleat spacing
    o High-quality steel case and base

    Pressure Relief Valves
    o Motorcraft filters feature an upfront (threaded-end) pressure relief valve design which prevents unfiltered oil from reaching the engine
    Media Area
    o Motorcraft media area is larger and filters are designed to meet Ford specifications for optimal efficiency and capacity Anti-drain Back Valve
    o Not all Aftermarket filters have anti-drain back valves
    o Many Aftermarket anti-drain back valves are constructed of lower-quality rubber that can become brittle over time when exposed to hot oil
    Center Tubes
    o Many Aftermarket filters have plastic center tubes

    Easy Removal
    o Generic Aftermarket filters are not designed to Ford specifications
    Quality
    o Typically, Aftermarket filters are not well bonded, allowing unfiltered bypass
    o Some aftermarket filters may use lower-quality steel case
    Pressure Relief Valves
    o Most Aftermarket filters use a dome-end design relief valve which may allow unfiltered oil into the engine

    Media Area
    o Aftermarket filter media area is typically smaller and filters are not designed to meet Ford specifications for efficiency and capacity
