Ford Focus engine sump oil level in relation to crankshaft ??
I live in the UK.
I drive a Ford Focus 1.8 petrol (the Zetec E engine).
I would be extremely grateful if someone could tell me (if they know the answer) how far above the Maximum notch on the engine dipstick the oil level would have to be in order for the crankshaft to come into contact with the oil in the oil Sump ? I mean how many milli litres extra would be needed for this to happen and to cause the problem of the crankshaft whipping up the oil ?
If you don't know what the clearance is between the sump oil level and the crankshaft on this type of engine do you think FORD would be able to tell me and put my mind at rest ?
