I heard twice, from the first service manager that they didn't do that. When the second service guy called (and erroneously told me that the turbos were shot) we went over the list and I casually mentioned that the calibration wasn't on the list. He added it without comment. ???

Yes. I checked with GPS and cruise control. Before the new tires, I was dead on. After the new tires, I was -2 to -4. Across 35 to 65. After calibration, I'm -1 to dead even across the speed range.

With 1500 miles left on warranty the other manifold started leaking and making the slide whistle sound. It goes in Tuesday. Also, for some reason, the speedo reset. Now it's not calibrated.

I'll report what they find.

Airedrifter, what oil are you running in your ecoboost, and at what interval are you changing it? You should be using a full synthetic 5w 30 or 40 with a good high temp high shear rating and be changing it at no more than 5k mile intervals. Ford's ultra lax recommendations for oil and its extended change intervals WILL cost you those turbos, AND a timing chain job.

RIP Lemmy. Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

I've run two 3.5EB F150's in the last 4 years - 68k on the last one and 100k on the one before that. I do use full synthetic, but change oil based on the vehicle computer, and both had no issues, and showed no signs of issues.

There are more variables than just what oil you use and when you change it to make a blanket statement like that, especially in CAPS

Instead of arguing about oil, just say - You do it your way, and I'll do it mine. I've been on forums for years, and oil discussions never go well. The diesel forums were the best for that!

You do it your way, and I'll do it mine.

My boss just traded in a 2012 F150 EB, he was up around 80-90k miles. All he ever did to it was change the oil when the dash screen told him to (roughly 7500 miles or so), and he had them use Motorcraft semi-synthetic. It still ran fine, the only complaint he had with the truck was the relatively low MPG.

I'm going to change mine at 5k miles mainly because it's an easy interval to remember - and so far I only put around 5k / year on my personal vehicle anyway. (Might change if I start going camping a lot more.) Still haven't decided on the syn vs semi-syn.

djbikeman, I understand your playful tone. Such sensitive times we live in when two words in all caps, get our panties in a bunch. Its just a shame to see a nice engine get trashed because we trusted the manufacturers recommendations on oil and change intervals. They're like government, they don't have our best interest in mind.

I guess it's all relative... 80-90k miles on a 2012 is just out of powertrain warranty. To me, an engine with 90k miles on it is just broken in, diesel or gasser, not time for a trade in. Manufacturers need the vehicle to make it out of warranty, after that, they could care less. Lets not hijack the turbo whine/busted manifold thread just yet.

RIP Lemmy. Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

I was running Mazola but switched to synthetic (Olestra). Had issues with leakage. Never again.
