What is the correct oil for a mk1 2000 2.0 16v.

Every oil site i go on says something different, some say Part Synthetic some say fully Synthetic etc etc.

Some say 10w 40 others say 5w 30.

Mine has done 148 thousand miles, and i do a lot of stop start work as am a delivery driver.

Also what is correct oil to top gearbox up.

Thanks.




Just another quick one, any one ever had a car on a log book saying its a saloon when its clearly a hatchback, dvla refuse to change it, also fords ettis site says it a saloon.

since its just as cheap order from ford mate that way you get the right stuff all ford focis use 5w30 thats a fact 10w is too thick though its used on old cars but on a 2000 that can cause sticking tappets so 5w30 is what ford put in

Engines knocking after you've put Castrol Magnatec in? First I've heard of that. I serviced my car this year for the first time after it's warranty ran out and put Magnatec in. Runs superbly.
