Yes it is but it's probably only 20%.

Did my second oil change on my 2.0 and put in full synthetic.

Only tip I can add is when the shield is put back.
Leave the screws a little loose in case you have to move it to line up one of the other screw holes. Then go back and give a final tighten.

Good write up and thanks to all. I enjoy doing my own oil changes for one main reason. It forces me to get under the car and give the whole underside a visual inspection. You would be surprised at what you may discover. For example, during my last oil change I noticed my heat sheild had been damaged/torn and was hanging down. I was able to repair it.

And since I change my oil much more fequently than the 7500 miles on all my cars I was able to notice my wifes Honda had fluid running down the length of the underbody due to a leaking timing belt cover(a Honda TSB I found out, covered under warrenty).

I agree. Did my third oil change yesterday and the shroud had a bunch of road junk in it. Cleaned it up while the oil was draining.

Oil change on 2.0 engine
 
Just did my fourth oil change and after this harsh winter had a TON of salt buildup on the inside of the shroud. Took me awhile to get it all off. Just a heads up to other northerners to be looking out for this.

Is the process the same for resetting the oil life monitor on the 2014?

great write up tks. Had a look for my first oil change and wasn't sure where to start, didn't want to remove what I didn't have to.

Motorcraft also makes full synthetic oil. Your dealer should be able to get you either. Your car, Your money, Your choice!
