Hi all

My ford manual reccomends either 5-30w or 10-40w well as i workj in a parts dept for renault i can get oil ELF SOLARIS DPF OR COMP ELF STUFF dirt cheap i was going to put 5-30w in it as its a lot thinner isn't it than 10-40w which i normally give out for diesels also any ideas how much a tool for oil filter removal is

5/30 is recomended so i would stick to it knowing now sensitive ford engines are to wrong viscosity,removal tools are various prices depending what you require e.g strap, chain, pliers, socket ect but remember you get what you pay for
