could definitely be the fuel pump. or maybe just the drain back valve failing. try turning the key on and off a few times and see if it starts quicker. if you do replace the pump only buy an OEM motorcraft or a Walbro. if you buy any cheap pumps it will last about a month or maybe 3 if youre lucky

I use 5 qt of Castrol Edge & 1 qt of Lucas oil synthetic stabilizer. I need to change mine in the 2014 as I just turned 5,000 miles.

I use mobil 1. Motorcraft is supposed to be good too.

I use 5w-20. Why? because the difference between 5w-20 and 5w-30 is like 8 degrees. unless you have a precise thermometer you wont know which works best, but they both work well in the 190-210 temp range. So it doesn't really matter anyway.

I should use something like 10w or 15w being so cold here, but I only change my oil once per year in the spring, I don't drive it much. (Drive the truck more in the winter).

Used to use mobil 1, when I got my '12 GT I decided to try Royal Purple and noticed an improved overall smoothness and bump in power. I wanted to go for amsoil, but it was difficult to find.

1 year or 10,000 miles is the recommended oil change interval noob. I only have like 11,000 miles and owned it for 3 years. No way would I change oil after 1,500 miles.. tis silly.

You got it backwards Mishri. The colder the temp, the lower the first number should be.
