    The OE oil is pretty inexpensive. I doubt an actual Ford dealer would buy non-Ford oil for warranty reasons.

    All I can say is I worked a several Car dealerships and they always used bulk non Synthetic oil and cheap Non OEM parts on used cars that were sold without a warranty.

    I am not saying that is the case with my car but I am hoping that is what happened.

    Considering they left a dirty clogged air filter in my car it is safe to say they did not have the best tech on the team working on my car when they prepped it for sale.

    I guess I will find out once I get the oil changed.

    I have seen several Ford or Motorcraft branded parts that say “Not for use for warranty repair work” or something like that. Brake pads and shoes in particular. Seems to indicate an quality difference.
