Look on the oil fill cap or in the owner's manual. Pretty sure it is 5w30, but the new ones take 5w20.


it's 5-30 oil..


Both weights can be used in the 3.0L Duratec. The weight is on the cap like Bob mentioned. I use 5W-20 Semi Synthetic. Motorcraft brand oil can be found at Walmart, and pick up a Motorcraft filter while your there too.

Same stuff I run in my Mercury, Dodge Ram and Lincoln MKZ. Motorcraft Semi Synthetic is a highly regarded oil and their filters are top notch too.
