What engine oil do I need?

Post by Cherie » Tue Jan 25, 2011 9:00 pm

For all engines, Ford specify 5W30 semi synthetic oil.

Ford's own brand of semi-synthetic was Formula E, but this has been discontinued. Some retailers may still have some in stock, but it's not common. Ford now only stock their fully synthetic range of Formula F.

Either semi- or fully-synthetic, of any brand can be used comfortably in Ford's range of Zetec engines, so long as it conforms to the Ford specifications.
