What is the recommended engine oil for my Ford?

Ford recommends using Motorcraft®* motor oil for your Ford vehicle. Using the right oil helps keep your vehicle’s engine clean, reduces overall wear, and maximizes performance.

Recommended engine oil specifications can be found in your Owner's Manual under Capacities and Specifications.

Alternatively, you can refer to Ford's Chemicals and Lubricants website to find the recommended transmission fluid type.

  4. Once downloaded, open the PDF.
  5. There are multiple tables based on oil type. Locate your vehicle model and engine size in the left column of one of the tables.
