According to Castrol my Mondeo mk3 5w30 can use same spec as the Fiesta 5w20 E now

Thing with ebay unless its a really trusted seller you don't know if youre getting cheap oil in a fake or reused container.

 

I noticed with that 7 litre one you posted earlier that the image was photoshopped to add the label over the container.

 

Just can't be trusted imo.

I forgot to add, i found this one for £30 and It's a Ford dealership.

The engine capacity is 5.8 Ltr, so you'll need two really or 3 for next year too. IF you could find 4ltr ones that work out at £6 per litre you're laughing.

 

If the "D" spec is OK that Harry put up, It is dearer, but you'll get 3 services out of it.

 

Ok, ECP is cheaper though?

 

Its ok if it can't be got cheaper than about £25-£30 per 4l/5l. I just assumed it could. Kinda defeats the benefit of a quick fill, run for a few hundred and then refill though.

You could buy a 5L and a 1L tub of the stuff I posted for £20 it’s the correct spec and I’ve currently got it in my engine for the exact same purposes your wanting to use it for.

Gsf are reputable, no need to worry about being ripped off and then you can stop worrying about this whole fiasco lol!

Drive tech are their own brand of oil, it meets the spec that ford have set and you’ll be changing it well before it’s even a concern that the oil isn’t as good as a better named brand.

I’ve not used the manoil stuff but it does come up very cheap I have to admit, my go too stuff is shell, I use it in my stage 3 S4 that’s running 450bhp and it runs lovely on the stuff, keeps the internals very clean.

But opinions are like bum holes and everyone has got one.

Just for reference this is the flushing oil I used, the discount isn’t working with GSF so I’d look elsewhere like CP4L, you could just run the flushing oil and then use a decent oil brand and then keep that in for the full duration of service interval.

I got this flushing oil from ebay.

 

20ltrs for £50 delivered.

 

It should work out cheaper than the GSF link above if you're planning on keeping it for a few years or you have more than one car to do.

Thanks all. That flushing oil is quite expensive isn't it @burnzybubbles

 

I know the ebay stuff is cheaper. Neither really tell you what the ingredients are though.

 

I think I'll skip it this time as I have never used it before and my car is on 100k miles now and I don't know its full history other than it does seem to have had regular oil changes.

 

The drive tech oil was delivered today, package has all the right specs on it so I'll try that.

 

Rest of my tools needed have not turned up yet though.

 

The new undertray is on route.

The eBay one is mineral oil.

Yea I’ve never paid that much for it, but it can help some really dirty engines.

Well keep us informed on how you get on once your stuff turns up 🙂

I’m keeping myself busy, I’ve got my S4 to sort out so currently rebuilding turbos and cylinder heads on my time off 🤣

I would never put flushing oil in a car with a turbo. The lubricating properties are

a lot less than the regular oil and its virtually impossible to get every drop of it out.

 

I would change the oil often instead. Put a cheaper brand of the correct spec in and

change it again after 1000 miles or as soon as it discolours.

 

Did this on my sisters diesel focus, 1st time i have seen clean oil in a diesel. Took

about 4 changes though. Didnt drive it between changes but changed it run the engine

for a bit than change again.

 

She worked for a car part supplier and got a super deal on the oil.  Gutted when she left...

Probably a bit late in on this one, but changed my oil for the third time today using Mobil Super 3000 X1 FE 5-30w which is about 30 quid (depending on what discount code is running) for 5 litres.

The only tricky bit was remembering what I had done with my Sealey adapter...

For a oil catch tray, I reckon you cant beat this for £3.59 IMO -> https://www.toolstat...ler-tray/p11328

Once the sump is emptied, its about 2/3 full. One corner has a spout so its easy to pour the old oil into a container for recycling.
