Why not? Of course it can! What could happen to (any) engine because of that? A little bit worse (1 to 3%) fuel efficiency since 5W-30 is thicker than 5W-20! But, I'd ask you right now: Why you even consider synthetic blend? If you think that synthetic part (max 30%) in blended oil is going to improve mineral part you voluntarily admit that synthetic is better. USE (FULL) SYNTHETIC and have all the benefits - better mileage, extended drains, cleaner engine, better winter start, smoother operation... Want more? Why to waste natural resources if you can have simpler and better maintenance with synthetics? Do not forget good air and oil filters! They keep engine's longevity! If you want recommendation(s) - use Amsoil (XL oil for 7500 mi) or Mobil (extended). All others are (poorer) copies of them! For the filters - again Amsoil! Absolutely better than K&N! Same air flow and 50 times (!!!!!) better filtration. (If you need more info call 519-739-3765)

This specification has been updated from 5W-30 to include
5W-20 per a Technical Service Bulletin from the

WHAT OIL IS RECOMMENED FOR 2006 F150 GAS ENGINE FOR BEST PERFORMANCE?


In a forum of F150 owners, 60% said they recommend a good synthetic oil. Many said they use Motorcraft Synthetic Blend 5w-20, with Pennzoil, Castrol and Mobile1 synthetic used often as well.

If you are in a hot climate area, I would probably use a 5w-30, a slightly heavier oil, to help with heat.

What oil is used for 1997 ford explorer


Factory says 5W-30.
You can do better with Walmart's full synthetic 5W-30 with a filter and oil change every 5 - 6,000 miles.
Just keep an eye on oil level - the V8 version of this vehicle does use oil after about 120,000 miles. The 6 is a bit better until about 150,000 miles.

1 Answer

Oil specifications


The motor oil from the factory is motocraft synthetic blend 5w-30 for normal conditions and motocraft synthetic blend 5w-20 for cold environments. But any synthetic blend or full synthetic of equal weight will do just fine and you will require 5 quarts of oil. DO NOT USE A THICKER WEIGHT OIL, OIL ADDITIVES OR NON SYNTHETIC. Thicker oil like 10w-30, 10w-40, 20w-50 will not be thin enough to lubericate the tighter clearences of the motor and coventional oil breaks down faster than a synthetic blend or synthetic. And be sure to change the oil every 5,000 miles

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...
