Another for Motorcraft Synthetic blend and a motorcraft filter.
The filter was horrible to change the first time (brand new). After that, I've always been able to remove the filter with my hand.

Ok guys thanks for the input!
I actually ended up working late and couldn't get it, so now that I can (hopefully) get it today I will haha.
Also I'm in need of the oil filter wrench, but since there's no time for an online order I can ask the guys at AutoZizone.

|matmatician||Going with motorcraft stuff can't hurt, but I don't think using non-motorcraft will void your warranty... Nothing wrong with motorcraft though! If you really want to be on the safe side, for for it|

|nickstewartroc||I personally use the Motocraft 5w-20, you can get a 5qt jug from Walmart for like 20 and a nice Motocraft oil filter! (FL-400)|

What oil to get?
So I'm finally changing my own oil for the first time. Yes I have someone who knows what they're doing to help me haha.
Now I'm wondering what oil to get.
I've just seen 2 different manuals because one says use a 5W-30, the other 5W-20.
Matmatician recommended a few brands, and 5W-20 so I'm going to take this advice.
My main question since I believe my warranty is still active, is if I should use the motorcraft formula which is recommended, or go with something like Valvoline or Mobil 1.
I've got to get this oil tonight, not sure why but that's what I was told by the person helping me, so hopefully someone sees this!
