Oil Filter

New Oil Filter Requirements for Ford and Lincoln Vehicles

Protection for Today’s Longer Service Intervals

  • It is critical that the oil filter performs properly during the entire oil service interval
  • Ford Motor Company contributed to the development and creation of the USCAR-36 Oil Filter Specification
  • The Society of Automotive Engineers adopted the new specification as SAE USCAR-36
  • All Motorcraft filters produced after January 1, 2017 are aligned with SAE USCAR-36 specification

High Performance Features that Help Keep Engines Safe

  • Anti-drain back valves to help prevent dry starts
  • Anti-drain back valves that are made of silicone provide greater cold/heat resistance (down to -75 and up to +450 degrees F)
  • Pressure relief valves help maintain supply of oil to the engine under extreme cold conditions or if the filter gets clogged
  • Location of relief valve in the majority of Ford application filters prevents settled debris from entering and potentially damaging the engine
Designed to be Tough
  • Large filter media area provides optimum filtering efficiency throughout the oil change cycle
  • All Motorcraft oil filters are subjected to extensive testing to ensure they work as designed throughout the oil change cycle
