Hello all,just wondering what engine oil to put in my '99 diesel.
Probably sounds dense I know but it doesn't mention what type it takes. Any help would be grateful.
TIA

Yeah thats what I need thanks.On another matter,the Cd on my stereo is dead,always says there is a disc when they always play ok in anything else.Thing is,I've got a new stereo (Sony) and was wondering how to get the Ford unit out as there are 4 small holes on the front of it but I can't see any way to the unit out.
Is this a Ford dealer job??
BTW the unit is a CD6000.

Thanks ,

Kwozzii

The stereo mite be a problem.There are special tools needed to get some of them out.You would be better taking it to a car audio shop probably rather than the Ford dealer as they could probably help out more with fitting the new unit and possibly repair the old one if needed.I'll grab those oil ratings too .Can I ask how you came across the site eg search,word of mouth etc.

Finally back on the oil. The diesel takes slightly different oil to petrol engines tho I think it is mainly higher detergent levels in the diesel stuff. Oil classification is API service CC or CD and SAE viscosity ratings are as follows
Temperature range the vehicle operates in ,in degees celcius
-30 to -20 =SAE 5W_20
-20 to 30 = SAE 10W_30
-10 to 40= SAE 15W_40
These are multigrade oils to cover various air temp ranges you might operate in.Hope this helps Kwoozii.

Yeah thats great,thanks a lot for that.I found this forum on the Ford Focus newsgroup and thought I'd give it a try - and I'm glad I did!!
As for the stereo,I got that sorted.Went to my local Ford dealer who took it out for nothing - using a dedicated Ford tool - and after I bought the conversion kit (after the dealer gave me a Mondeo one instead of the Fiesta one he gave me by mistake first) the new stereo just slipped in,and sounds great aswell!!.
Thanks again for your help.
Laters,
