if you have the manual it should be in the last four to five pages in engine spec, will give details of all fluid capacitys. B)

I remember when I was at college studying mechanics and one of the tutors told us all that he knew someone who filled their car up with oil until it came out of the filler cap :(

They started their car and it went boom lol, poor sod!

Anyway as Lenny said it will be in your owners manual and you'll need 5w-30 (I use a good quality fully synthetic)

My 1.25 Zetec MK5 is 3.8 litres but bear in mind my car is older than yours - but saying that I can't see there being any difference in oil capacity because both of the units are 1242cc to be exact lol.

It was 3.8 litres when my 1.25 was made, and I presume it is probably the same now, or maybe a bit less due to a better oil pump or something.
