    I'm letting the dealer do my first couple because it's free. Afterwards I'll do my own like I always have. Mobil 1 full synthetic with a good ford filter.

    Today I will perform the third oil change on my ST, always with Motorcraft filters but this time using quaker state oil since my father has some left.

    I change my own oil, don't trust dealerships...I think they are all crooks. I use Mobile 1 extended life synthetic (15000 mile rating on this oil) and a Bosch premium oil filter. I change the oil every 7000 miles. I changed the oil right after a 2000 mile break in, and again at 9000 miles. I have 9400 miles on mine and it loves clean oil. I do not drive this car hard. Sometimes a little spirited driving is in order, but 95% of the time it just cruises.

    I change my own, Royal Purple oil and Royal Purple Filter, I get it on sale at pep boys $39.99 for 5 quarts and the filter. I change it between every 9000 and 10000 miles.
