Hi, I was wondering what sort of oil I should put in my '99 T reg focus?

Any help or suggestions all gratefully received.

5w 30 is the type.

I'd recomend either Ford oil or Castrol Magnatec. Also if your changing oil remember to change oil filter or you maeswell be wasting your time.

as suggested by cressws1 make sure the filter is changed too! id recommend ford 5w30 oil because its no more expensive (suprisingly) and i like using official parts, having said that im sure castrol is just as good :) aslong as its 5w30 it should be fine
