  1. 1st Oil Change on Bronco Sport Badlands -- Thoughts and Things Learned!

    I think you'll find if you re-read what I wrote that I'm well aware of what "anecdotal" means. My non-anecdotal data would be that of the blackstone labs oil analysis report (FACTS) as opposed to that dude's conjecture regarding Ford's data as it pertains to their service interval...
  2. 1st Oil Change on Bronco Sport Badlands -- Thoughts and Things Learned!

    Oh, I'm sorry, Ford does say it's every 150,000 miles for transmission fluid change. I'm going to hold you to that, you know, because the Ford experts know best right? If I find out you changed your transmission fluid prior to 150k I'm going to be pretty disappointed. It's funny that you dump...
  3. 1st Oil Change on Bronco Sport Badlands -- Thoughts and Things Learned!

    I posted an oil analysis which shows fuel dilution and a degradation of viscosity and flash point, what more do you want? This is not anecdotal, this is FACTUAL. Of course you didn't address the "lifetime" transmission fluid either, that would implode your "argument".

    Clearly you don't understand how direct injected turbocharged engines work. I based my 3k oil change intervals on fuel dilution. At 3k miles there's typically at least 1% fuel dilution on this engine. There is no "problem" to be addressed with fuel dilution on these engines, I think I did a...

    Alas, as stated in my original post, DO WHAT YOU WANT. I am merely serving up a warning for people to get a UOA done and NOT TO TRUST THE FACTORY RECOMMENDED SERVICE INTERVALS on their ecoboost engine. This is a UOA from an ecoboost engine with less than 3k miles on the oil. Look at the...

    Not quite sure the manufacturer has your best interest in mind with extended servicing. If you keep your vehicle while in warranty and then sell, by all means do what you like or just do what you like any way. I urge you to do a quick google search of "Ford fuel dilution blackstone labs" and...
  7. 1st Oil Change on Bronco Sport Badlands -- Thoughts and Things Learned!

    These Ford ecoboost engines DO suffer from fuel dilution even if you can't smell it in your oil. Almost all direct injection turbocharged engines do as a byproduct of insane cylinder pressure mixed with a fine mist of fuel from the direct injection. The blow by gases get past the rings and...
