Be sure to use the Ford oil filter and cap. After market screws up the injectors. I use all Ford filters and oil. Hope this helps

I do mine but get my filter at Ford. Also be sure the oil filter cap is Ford. If not get one and save your injectors.

You can never go wrong with Ford's Motorcraft filters, but if need be my second choice would be WIX
