Engine oil


Recommended Posts

As I'm off work soon I want to service my escort, my query is which oil would be best to use at the moment it has castrol magnatec 10/40 in it, would it be worth using this again or is there a better oil for the same price.

if you have a zetec engine it should be 5w30 i would get it from ford

i put 10/40 in the focus the past 2 services as i found it was eating the recommended oil na few people said i was be ff changing grade. that said, the engine must be worn to eat the oil like it was but since changing grade it has been great



Im not 100% sure but didnt using grades such as 10/40 cause eventual sticking valves on Zetecs?
