I thought I read something a while back that for this vintage of car, you had to use the Motorcraft branded Conaco 5w50 oil to keep the warranty active though I could not find the post when I searched today. Is this true or has a TSB come up to allow other oils? The reason I bring this up is the "Change Oil" came up today (1725 miles on the car) and I called the local (or is it loco, you be the judge) Ford dealer. They quoted $70 for an oil change with Mobil 1 5w50. I also got pricing on parts alone and they want $10.68 / quart and $5.33 for a standard filter (this equal a total parts cost of over $80). How can they do this? A bulk tank of 5w50? Being an old wrench turner, I'm all for getting the break in oil out with all it's metallic particles even though it's low mile but am wondering what's the deal? A quick scan of the internet and Mobil 1 can be ordered for $8.45/ quart. TIA, MikeW
