Engine Oil Recommendations For
Ford Vehicle Applications & Engines
The AERA Technical Committee offers the following information supplied by Ford Motor Company on recommended engine oil for Ford engines. Previously AERA published Technical Bulletin TB 1738, the information in this bulletin is an update to that bulletin. This latest information should be highly considered as quality improvements have been made to most engine oils. The current engine oil used by Ford during the vehicle manufacturing process is SAE 5W-20 Motorcraft oil. This oil may also be used for older vehicles described in chart 1 below.
The engine oil recommended for use in 2001 vehicles is SAE 5W-20 motor oil. This oil has an improved formulation to improve fuel economy. This oil can also be used to service some previous model year vehicles.
Use SAE 5W-20 engine oil at recommended oil change intervals for 2001 vehicles, with the exception of the following vehicles listed in the Exception 2001 Vehicles chart.
All 2001 vehicles other than those listed in the Exception 2001 Vehicles chart are being filled with SAE 5W-20 motor oil at the factory and should also be serviced with SAE 5W-20 oil.
