Delo Oil & Racor Filters????

Guys,

I was told the other day by an ex-Ford employee that Ford recommends Delo oil. Then I read this morning on this site that they also use Racor Fuel Filters. I purchased a 2009 with 19000 miles and am going to have the oil and all filters changed tomorrow. I am not carrying it to a Ford dealer but to the an oil changing place I have been using for years and trust the guys working there. They have choices of oil and filters and I am trying to figure out which way to go. I am not going with Synthetic oil but not sure what I am going with. Any suggestions??

WRS

Delo oil is a popular choice, and Racor makes the filters for Motorcraft, so you should be good with those choices. Oil opinions are like color opinions, everybody's is different

I run Delo 400 15w-40 & Motorcraft filters.....Delo seems to be very popular oil. Alot of truckers use this in their rig and I think it is what Peterbuilt fills their new trucks with. I change every 5000 miles too.

When I searched those part numbers, they appear to be the fuel filters. I think the oil filter numbers are;

FL-2016(Motorcraft)

PFL-2016(Racor)

We had a rep from Racor at the shop yesterday and we went over the differences between the original PFF5550 and the new PFF4617. The only difference is on the smaller filter, they have added an o-ring. The only reason for this was because Ford was finding that some people were neglecting to change there fuel filters when they were supposed to and in doing so, the filter would eventually fail. The new o-ring ensures that nothing will get past even if neglected for extended periods. As long as you change your filter when you are supposed to, the old PFF5550 filters work just fine. All of our current stock is the new PFF4617 though as the old PFF5550 filters are no longer being produced. Here is a link to the fuel and oil filters for the 6.4L.
