    Fiesta 1.3 LX
  1. Hi there, Am waiting to get my hands on a Fiesta - have been looking for one for a while now, and finally found a decent deal. I should be getting it in the new year, am quite excited! I don't know much about taking care of cars (never owned one before, only driven them at my company's expense :P) and I want to take care of this one, so I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice - I'm specifically wanting (1) to know what type of oil I should get (is any okay? does it need to be a specific one?), (2) if there's a user guide available online anywhere (google search and a look at Ford's website didn't turn up anything) and (3) if there's a site I can go to/good book someone could recommend about how to take care of it when I get it - like I said, I don't know much about taking care of cars, but would like to learn as I would hate to see her fester at my hands! It's a 1996 1.3L Ford Fiesta LX, by the way. Thanks very much for any advice you can give! Dross
