    Good tips, I have a 2016 BT50 GT model.
    Still got warranty so pay mazda $50 for their Taiwan made filter and sump plug washer and get local bloke to change it at 10,000km.
    I use the Nulon psudo full synth as it's about $100 on special at supercheap or repco.
    The penrite seems a bit dearer when I find the good stuff.
    It's a worry as both oil and fuel filters are tiny, may fit a second fuel filter after the 3 years when I no longer bend over for mazda.

    Mate a 2micron secondary filter was the first thing I did to my ranger. Worth its weight in gold

    The recommended procedure is before you drain the oil, make sure you have enough oil to put back in already beside you. Drain the oil until it stops "Flowing out", refit the drain plug, refill oil immediately, and start the engine.....then replace the oil filter quickly and start again...finally adjust the oil level to be at the correct level!

    It has cost a lot of companies a lot of money!! Most oil and additive companies have released and published warnings to workshops to try and help!

    Cheers mate

    Best practice for this is to replace the oil filter first, make sure the vehicle is warm, then drain the oil. Fill and start the vehicle. I've got a 2017 ranger that gets serviced every 7500, it gets every filter every service, because ford trade club allows me to buy filter kit for 76 bucks. Oil costs me under $100 for penrite vantage full synthetic 5w30 liquimoly engine detox and liquimoly mos2 every service aswell.[/QUOTE]

    Good advice Buckman, I do believe this is the latest update for the servicing of these engines, and makes perfect sense!

    I have been advised by our local Ford Dealership that this problem has been fixed in the later model Rangers...mind you, that same dealership rang me and asked what to do with a Ranger that they had just serviced that was having the cavitation problem! (Freaking out and not knowing what to do!?!)

    Cheers,

    Mick

    Yeah Mick, the old fill it to the lid with oil sit for 24hrs and drain to the correct level and hope it gets oil pressure trick lol yeah I do believe the issue is "sorted" in the px2, but it's still not a risk I'm willing to take lol
