Forgive me if i am.wrong but actually this is the correct oil for the ranger according to the manual. There are known cases where the 1 of the leaf springs actually can crack causing a knocking when driving. Know of 3 cases where this occurred even without carrying any load or towing. Hope you get to the cause of your noise without much troubleshooting .

Thing is - since I was in ansa so much I experienced first hand issues with the newer rangers , even the brand new ones still have issues - one of my good friends is the service manager in ansa and he himself told me it's better I go with the l200 than the ranger.

Everyone wants a hilux but the hilux doesn't want us. If only price of Mazda vs Toyota wasn't so far apart.

The older model rangers with the wl at least once every day.

My advice get tools and do it urself. Super simple. Buy oem filters as I have no luck with subs in this model. The older models substitutes works fine.

Torque ur wheels bc studs and lugs are very easy to get damaged if u using air tools.
u ever replaced clutch. wat is the parts cost

Fram is very highly rated in comparison testing for diesel, gasoline, oil, and air filters. They are also very often counterfeited.

Many of the counterfeited parts are sold on ebay and Amazon.

Original mazda/ford... We used Royal purp in the Toyota and when we cant get it fram suffices... We do 6500-7000 changes and never had one collapse or looked deteriorated

For a WL engine, use Sakura(more economical) and change every 5000Km (FC 1707). Try a scrap yard/parts place to source the mesh filter for the input on the injection pump. It is there to catch any sediments that pass through the fuel filter.

Tora Fuel Filters are also good and almost same price as Sakura.
