I think that full syn may make a difference in cold weather I know I ran it in my last V10 work truck year around but I could still hear some different noises when it was really cold, sometimes the fan made so much noise it was hard to hear anything else.

I bought my 2012 brand new and have had two very minor issues...... A few squeaks one was a bad tail shaft seal and the other was a bad body bushing.

I change the oil every 5k, I use a Wix filter with 6 quarts of Valvoline full syn and 1 quart of Lucas oil treatment. I have just over 15k on the truck now and the engine is very quiet.

I don't know if the Lucas has anything to do with it but I swear by that stuff. I used it in my wife's old car. 1999 GTP it had 250k on it I had the oil pan off and intake manifold doing gasket changes and the engine looked great inside. I have since sold that car and bough her a new mustang but that damn thing still ran strong and was very quiet and didn't use any oil.

I also used it in my old truck 2006 Serra Denali it had 120k and very quiet. I also have two hotrods.... I use Valvoline full syn in everything I own. My my two cars get beat on pretty hard.

So my oil use and brand stays consistent from my experience and when I do engine tear downs the proof is before me so no guess work.

Just my experience hope it helps.....

Ford must have a noisy fan fetish. I had a 91 that sounded like it was powering a wind tunnel.

Yes I think they do, when they come on with heat they do a very good job bringing the temp down but you know it's engaged and when it's done.

the fan is noisy and I can live with it for what it does, I hate the clacking noise out of the engine.. if I can reduce it down but using a better grade oil then I am ok with that..i don't expect it to be ultra quiet but when you got a gas engine that sounds like a diesel there is something wrong with that..
