Hi Folks! I just bought my first Ford Focus MK3 with 1.0L Ecoboost. The car is "used" and I want to make first maintenance by myself. I want to install all genuine Ford parts but after research found FoMoCo and Motorcraft filters https://parts.ford.com/shop/en/us/filters https://focusoilfilter.com/

What is OEM brand for Ford Focus FoMoCo or Motorcraft? Or this is exactly the same?

Sorry for stupid question and thank you for your answers! 😉

I think they are exactly the same just with different names, if you look at any of the stuff under your bonnet you will see FoMoCo all over the place

FoMoCo (Ford Motor Company) are the original parts that are factory fitted.

The Motorcraft brand name includes a selection of aftermarket (service) parts that are offered by Ford as a cheaper alternative for the original FoMoCo parts.

Does anyone know who actually makes the canister filter that Ford rebrand? 

It's Mahle for the paper element on DV6 engines.

The FoMoCo oil filters are produced by Champion Labs. These oil filters are really good quality.

One of the design features of this Champions Labs oil filter series is one hole that has a larger diameter than the other holes. 

 

 

The Motorcraft oil filters can be produced by several different manufacturers. Motorcraft usually buys their oil filters in batches from different manufacturers. Purolator and Racor are known to produce oil filters for Motorcraft.
