Special Filter???

I let Ford do my first oil change, and I am about to do my own. Is it vital that I use a motorcraft oil filter? I also plan on using rotella. It is just an oil change, but is there anything I should pay special attention to? Thanks

Is it vital, no. But I'm a big believer in using OEM quality filters. I personally use Motorcraft or Wix (Napa Gold is same thing). There are a few other good brands out there too. I'm no fan of anything labeled "Fram". The rotella is good oil, can't go wrong there. Oil change on a 6.0 is the easiest thing in the world, nothing special to worry about.

Take your time and you'll be fine. I did my first change on the truck a couple weeks ago and all went well. I'd spring for the Motorcraft filter if I were you and Shell Rotella will be fine.

Good luck!

I agree. And you can go to Fleet Filter on the web to get good deals on all of your filters.
