I don't know about the new one, but I have a 2016 F-150 on a 3.5 Ecoboost engine and I was driving recently after an oil change and heard something similar as well. So I too would be interested to read comments on this issue. By the way, I also wanted to ask, I was changed to the best oil for 3.5 Ecoboost and it is Castrol 5w-30. According to the guys, it's the best for me. Does anyone have any experience with this oil?
