You shouldn't have a problem. 5w30 is recommended but as long as you maintain it properly and change at correct intervals it should be ok

What can cause a knocking at the right hand side valve cover


Hi , usually a knocking / pinging from the valve cover indicates a lifter tapping. Could be worn out or just worn. Do you change your oil every 3000 with high quality oil? (I always have used valvoline standard with outstanding results) Dirty oil and filter and or incorect weight oil and or using synthetic oil in older cars can result in lifters tapping. If your oil is under 2000 miles since last change and you used a high quality oil (watch who changes your oil, some places use inferior oil because its cheaper) you can buy a pint of oil treatment formula to quiet noisy lifters to coat the lifter and quiet it down. It is a sign of engine wear, but one lifter tapping a bit wont really hurt your engine mechanically. If they all get noisy, time for a valve job. Root cause is wear due to insufficient lubrication. The lifters on newer cars are all hydraulic and they self adjust. No manual adjustment is possible. Bottom line: keep your oil changed regularly using a high quality non-synthetic oil for your 1999 vehicle.

Does a 100% synthetic oil harm or help maintain my 1999 ford explorer with 150k miles on it.what weight and brand of synthetic oil should be used?


Brand makes no difference
Weight, should only be what your vehicle calls for---that should be on the oil filler cap
Nothing wrong with synthetic oils---wouldn't spend the money now,with 150K

Recommended oil type for a 1999 ford escort


5w30. If over 100k miles you may want to start using synthetic. I use castrol GTX conventional 5w30 in my cars. You can also by the ford brand of oil called motorcraft. its inexpensive and is a good product as well.

My 2005 Ford Expedition has a slight knock you can hear in the motor. I have been told to use a synthetic oil and this will cure the problem. What is the standard motor oil for this vehicle that Ford...


You dont wont to use synthetic oil, because it is alot thinner than your conventional oil... It lasts longer, but not good for knocks or when you have oil leaks...However if you have more than 100k, you should be running either 10w40 or 20/50 motor oil..Also make sure the knock is oil related, and not a mechanical problem...Goodluck..

Sounds like you need new rotors or breaks on your car, have they been inspected or changed in the last service? Probably worn down to the point your breaks are grabbing.

Also could be the automatic transmission giving out, due to worn bands and cylineders.
Could invest 100$ in a tranny flush with synthetic oils, exp if miles are high, 100,000 +
