Owners manual says:
2001~2008 2.3L = FL400S
2009~2010 2.3L = FL910

Motorcraft site says:
2001~2003 2.3L = FL400S
2004~2010 2.3L = FL910/FL910S


Using the 910 shouldn't have hurt anything but, if I had a 2008 2.3L, I would go by the manual that came with the truck and use the larger FL400S.

I was looking at a Motorcraft filter catalog yesterday and it suggested: 2001 - 2010 2.3L = FL400S, and didn't show the FL910 listed for any Ranger.

Ford like most other manufatures are trying to go to a one filter deal....like all honda's and acura's now have the same oil filter...my brother-n-law just went through same thing on his escorts......they're goin to fase out some filters and just use one filter. thats prob why the book said one thing and lil computer thingy said another. BTW my 95 2.3 takes a FL400s
