Having problems with your 2008 Ford Focus SE Sedan ?
2008 ford focus
\015 What type of oil? how many quarts? and what is the fram oil filter number? for the 2008 ford focus\015
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.
