Question about 2007 Ford Escape Hybrid FWD
Just bought a 2001 V6 Ford Escape with 90,000kms. Recommended oil viscosity is 5w-20. Is this not a little too light for very hot conditions? Could I use something like a Mobil synthetic which goes 5w-50?
I ask that same question about my 2007 and was told that the main reason for the lite oil weight was to give better gas mileage. Still though I never changed because I got over tinkering with the manufactures specs. in my hot rod days. Stay with the 5-20W.
