oil filter

I did my 7500k oil change this week.For the first time i used a ryco z9 oil filter with the anti -drain back valve.Ive always used the motorcraft afl1.On cold start up in the morning ,im now getting lifter noise ticking away for about 6-7 seconds .Ive never had this before ,only ever so slightly.Now im using the same oil as usual,(shell helix eco 10w/30).so i think its the filter.So ive grabbed a motorcraft one today and will change it.Anyone else had the same problem?.The guy at ford parts said the motorcraft filter was different inside.I have also been told by a mechanic ,that 10w/40 oil is better for my ute,than using 10w/30.Whats the castrol magnetic like.?thanks.

Re: oil filter

Ryco's are good filters; it's probably nothing to do with the oil or filter just a coincidence. Ryco also make filters for Ford Austrlia.

Re: oil filter

Ryco sells a few under other names as well : (see http://www.gud.com.au/ryco.htm)
"The complete product range includes oil, air and fuel filters marketed under the high profile Ryco, Wesfil and Cooper brands, heavy duty filters marketed under the Wix brand and fuel pumps and associated parts that bear the equally well-established Goss brand name. "

Re: oil filter

And Ford and Ryco go along way back http://www.rycofilters.com.au/index.php?pageID=12: "GUD Manufacturing Company commenced spin-on oil filter production in the late 1950's. Two of the first part numbers were Z9 and Z10, both for the Ford Motor Company. The Z10 oil filter was used as original equipment on the Ford Falcon, Z9 becoming the service replacement oil filter for the same model."

Re: oil filter

I gave up on Ryco years ago because their anti-drain valves are crap. Bit of a worry if they supply Ford! Maybe this is why it is tilted down from horizontal, so that at least some of the oil stays in the filter.

Just gave my XR6 its first oil change - it had a grey filter fitted that looked nothing like the Motorcraft that my Ford dealer sold me.

Also found the drain plug was finger tight! Not good, Ford.

Re: oil filter

I wouldn't use a 10w 30 oil, too thin for our climate.
