My 2011 5.0 doesn't have the noise. I use Pennzoil synthetic blend 5W30, about 10,000 between changes, Motorcraft filter. It now has 69,000 miles on it.

Yeah it's just strange how some blocks had this defect and most didn't. Presumably they all came down the same assembly line and went through the same QC. Just makes a guy wonder if there isn't something else that's actually the root of the issue.

I use Royal Purple Full Synthetic, 5w20, with a Motorcraft filter. I do use the OLM to tell me when to change; I get about 10,000 miles between changes. I have a trusted local mechanic who does my oil changes; I have been with this mechanic for nearly 15 years. The dealer does all the warranty work of course. I believe the truck came with synthetic blend in it; I followed a break-in procedure of: 1,000 miles before I towed, of not using the cruise, varied speed, no WOT demands on the engine, etc. I changed the first oil out at 5,000 miles. Mine also came with 2 free oil changes; I paid to upgrade to full synthetic. Since it was mostly free, I did the next change at 5,000 also. From then on I followed the OLM and continued with full synthetic; I switched to my local mechanic/Royal Purple from Motorcraft Full Synthetic/Ford dealer after my last free change. I've been using motorcraft filters with the Royal Purple oil. I doubt all this saved me from the failure others are experiencing though. Apparently there are some bad engines out there it would seem. I hope it's not a fundamental design flaw present in all. I also hope Ford makes this right with replacement.
