Question about 2005 Kia Spectra
5w20 motor oil is recommended for our Ford Escape year round. I couldn't imagine why it wouldn't work for you. 10w30 would also be a good choice. Check the link to the forum below.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: engine noise
You have the 5.4 3 valve engine in your Navigator, Ford has had various problems with noise from this motor. The cost of repair will vary because this noise cam come from different places, such as cam phasers, valve lash adjusters and sometimes the ticking noise is actually coming from the injectors which is considered normal. I would have it checked out by the dealer. -Jared

SOURCE: engin oil life 50%
every new oil change, you will start out 100%, 50% state on your computer it just telling you that you have only used half of the oil life. when you get down to about 5-10 % is about time for the oil change. your GM mechanic will always reset the computer every time you get a new oil change.

It won't automatically reset. Most parts stores will check / reset the code for free, and if it doesn't reset, they can tell you what kind of code is causing the problem.

you can but not recommended. the reason for the thinner oil is the tolerances in the bearing races on these engines are very tight, requiring thinner oil. 5w30 is ok for sure if you are going synthetic.
