Question about 2008 Ford Focus SE Sedan
What type of oil? how many quarts? and what is the fram oil filter number? for the 2008 ford focus
You need 4,6 qts of 5W-20 motor oil. If I were you I'd start right now to use synthetic oil. If you decide to do it - go with "The First in Synthetics" and the best: Amsoil! 5W-20 XL motor oil gives you (guaranteed) protection for 7.500 miles. (Do not fall for warranty cancellations or similar dealership spam. Magnuson-Moss act prohibts cancellations based on brand). Read this: http://people.msoe.edu/~yoderw/oilfilterstudy/oilfilterstudy.html or this: http://www.lesabret.com/filters/filter.html and try to avoid Fram filters. It seems that any other filter is better than Fram. I'd recommend Amsoil, Wix, Carquest (made by Wix), Mobil...

Use a motorcraft filter. I would not use any Fram oil filters as I have cut one open and looked at it. The pleated paper had folded over on itself and was held together with a string. I have replaced a few of them for low oil pressure problems on other cars.. Use a motorcraft filter on this car or you may have lifter noise. Read your handbook. I use motorcraft 5w20 synth /blend . This is what was used since the car was new. When I check the oil its always full an looks like clean fresh oil even when its time for changing. 63000 miles.

You will need 5 quarts of SAE 30(don't use penzoil i use either valvoline or quakerstate) and the fram filter is PH9566 please rate the solution....thanks

This is covered in the Owner's Manual. Or at an auto parts store they have a chart for the oil filters and the counter person can tell you it is 5 quarts of 5w-20 and synthetic is best. Ford dealers use a synthetic blend.
