So I bought my 2012 f-250 back in Dec 17' and I am getting ready to do a full fluid change as I do not know when anything was changed. I want to change the oil/filter, fuel filters, and transmission fluid. Where do you all get your filters? Do you order from amazon, go to walmart, or an auto parts house? I have read every post on thread and the consensus is Motorcraft filters and NO Ck-4 oil.
You are right, I misread page 3 and this post "That is the old CJ4 with no CK4 rating so it would be ok to use.". But yes I did read every post!!You obviously haven’t read them all as they don’t say “no Ck-4”. I might be wrong but I don’t think you can find CJ-4 anymore unless it’s old stock. There’s a pdf of approved CK-4 oils, almost all the popular ones are approved by ford. And definitely motorcraft filters.
The oil filters are only a dollar or 2 less on amazon than they are at Walmart. So I get mine at Walmart if I’m in a rush.
Fuel filters I get on amazon. Prime shipping gets it here quick.

Basically CK4 oils are fine. The issue is CK4/SM or SN (Multi Vehicle oils). Do not use them as they have lower levels of Phos and Zinc (ZDDP).You are right, I misread page 3 and this post "That is the old CJ4 with no CK4 rating so it would be ok to use.". But yes I did read every post!!
Anybody run schaffers supreme9000 5w40 ?
very good oil and full synthetic
Truck seems to like it as well
5k is overkill. I start to think about it when the indicator tells me to change it. That is around the 7000-8000 mile mark every time. UOA has always come back well in the green zone.i know im bringing up an old post.... you guys really changing oil every 5k???
im running 10w30 amsoil and changing every 10k... with motorcraft filter..
im also strongly considering the amsoil remote bypass kit.
