I was planning to change my oil at around 500-800 miles to get rid of the break in oil and get a fresh filter in there but life interfered and I changed at about 1,300. I wanted to see the underside of my car and not struggle so I went to a self serve garage called Pit Row I think. They had an "oil change special", where you could get 1/2 hour of lift time for less than the hourly rate. The owner was very nice, showed me how to operate the lift and he stuck around because he was curious about the Fiesta ST. He even hooked up a sophisticated OBD scanner to see if there were any options that could be set in the ECU but the engine is too new and the scanner did not have support for it. Any way, I brought my own oil and filters. The first filter was the Purolator equivalent of the FL910s or whatever we have stock. The second was a Purolator Pure1 equivalent of an FL400s I think. Its a longer filter with a premium element but the bypass pressure, threads and ADBV are essentially equivalent. That means it will hold more junk before it bypasses, there will be less pressure differential across the element and finally it will hold slightly more oil than the little one. Once I got my car on the lift I used the shop's oil collector to catch every last drop of oil, a lift is really the right way to change oil. The filter was a pain to remove. Ford torqued mine on very tightly. There isn't much space around the filter, there is a water/oil heat exchanger that takes up space and the coolant lines get in the way too. I tried one of the filter wrenches that fits the profile of the oil filter can but the can was thin and the flats would deform and skip before enough torque was generated. I had to use a chain style filter wrench to get it loosened and that really chewed up the filter exterior. I wanted to cut the filter but the shop does not have a filter cutter. One impression I got was that after 1,300, the oil was quite black. That means either a lot of contaminants suspended in the oil or a break in lube that blackens easily. Any way getting the stock filter out was an ordeal, there wasn't an oil filter sized path to remove it with and the heat exchanger plumbing was the main problem. I reduced the issue a little by rotating one of the spring clips on a hose but its still a pain. Despite the difficulty of getting a filter out and in, it looked like the longer filter might have enough clearance and since its mounted horizontally it is aimed at the radiator fan instead of the ground so a long filter is "safe". After fishing it in to place the longer filter cleared everything and threaded on to the engine with no problems. A larger filter is not necessary on this engine, it is just extra insurance and for people who like to try things, it can be used for two and maybe more oil changes before it clogs. I wouldn't normally consider that but with the pain in the butt of removing the filter, that could be convenient (especially if you don't have a lift). Any way, my oil change was a success, you just need a 13mm wrench for the drain plug, possibly a chain style oil filter wrench and there is a filter upgrade available.
