Different Oil Filters: 4.0L V6 SOHC in Explorer & Ranger
Neither have an oil cooler. The filters mount in the same location and at the same angle, and yet they require an FL1A & FL820S respectively.
I asked the dealership and Ford's Customer Service Center and neither knew the answer nor wanted to pursue it any further.
Is there anyone out there who knows???
