New Ranger Edge Owner (Engine Oil) Question

Hi, I just purchased subject truck with 7,200 miles. Can I start using a fully synthetic oil now or must I wait a certain number of miles (e.g until the engine is completely broken in)? Thank you.

Hi Nancy,
You can put synthetic oil in your engine. See this link: http://www.mobiloil.com/USA-English/...ics/Myths.aspx

Synthetic Oil

Tex, Thank you so much for providing me with the Mobil 1 site. If you would be so kind, do you use Mobil 1, if so, full or blend synthetic, how often do you recommend changing my oil and finally, would FRAM Filters be OK? Thanks again, Nancy.

All products with the Mobil 1 name (not Mobil) are fully synthetic. I change my oil every 5000 miles, and use either a Motorcraft or Mobil 1 filter. Skip the Fram!
