I'm pretty sure most recent Fords, petrol and diesel use the Ford Formula F (formerly formula E which was semi synthetic) synthetic 5W-30 oil with only a few exceptions, your owner's handbook will have the spec in to confirm (assuming you have one).

Is there no longer any fluid information towards the rear of the handbook in the care and maintenance section? There always used to be fluid specs, oil level checking procedure as well as bulb types, fuse information etc.

Agree there's no data for lube but I did have this leaflet with my Mk3 which concurs with what Insanitybeard said

1962-0
2009 Kia Sedona GS In Black 2.9CRDI 183PS. 5 Speed Manual WAV.
2003 MK2 Galaxy Ghia In Solid Black 1.9 TDI 115PS. 5 Speed Automatic.

Upgraded Eberspächer booster heater  to independent heating with 7 day timer.

With VCDS lite (full version) need a code clearing or want to scan for faults in the north kent area, PM me.
All for a pint of Strongbow.

B#@%dy hell, Ford can't even include the oil spec in the care and maintenance section of the owner's handbook any more?! That's disgraceful, anybody would think they were trying to discourage home maintenance entirely!  ::)

Well, maybe not seeing that they saw fit to publish the information in a separate leaflet but why not put it in the owner's handbook where you would expect to find it?!?

Hi folks, new member to the forum here.

Don't have a hard copy manual to check  with yet, put down a  deposit on a 2009 Ghia Yesterday. But the on-line copies of the manuals on the Ford website all list the fluid specifications.
