Ford Ranger 2.3L DOHC 16-valve.
Changed at 82,250 miles (now 84,000).
Amsoil Signature Series 5w20 with Wix filter.

Previously ran Redline 5w20 for a 10,000 mile interval followed by Redline for a 6000 mile interval. Bad oil analysis reports which could be a cleaning action from the ester in the Redline. Prior to that the previous owner used Valvoline. I will do one analysis on the Amsoil around 6000 miles. Have another load of the Amsoil, then may follow with Mobil 1 as I have tow 5-qt jugs.

Everything else at my house gets Valvoline Maxlife and Maxlife Nextgen.

Always use Motorcraft, Purolator, Wix, Napa Gold, or Baldwin filters. NEVER Fram.

Neither Clifford nor Olie have had an oil change since they've been in my possession. Olie still has 2k miles on the sticker and Clifford hasn't reached the 10k mark yet (the interval listed in the manual for easy use - not to mention his little oil life system hasn't started yelling.)

Clifford just had his first oil change. I know it's a touch early, but I was in the area and had my coupon for the first one free. They rotated the tires and checked the fluids. Everything was hunky dory.

5W-20 Motorcraft, 4.5 quarts.

Two pedals, two feet, too easy.
