Quick question.

1.8 Focus Zetec 1999. Struggling to find correct oil. I know that currently it has in Castrol Magnatec 5-w30 but the castrol website says to use 10-w40 for top up? Two different types of oil, Is this correct?

Have something to contribute?

stick to the magnatec 5w/30 thats in it. mixing grades of oil should be avoided if possible.
