Unless something has changed between 00 and 03, the Duratec takes 5.5 quarts. Check your dipstick and see how it reads.

My personal opinion, I think you should be fine. Like I said, check the stick according to procedure and see how it reads.
So the smaller the numbers, the runnier the oil, right? If the runny oil gives you better mileage, is there a chance it would yield better performance? Would you be sacrificing the protection of a thicker oil for like the possibilty of a 1/2 hp gain?Originally posted by jtkz13@Dec 8 2003, 08:49 PM
Thats not surprising. Ford & Honda have went to 5W-20 in alot of their engines to help with emission/fuel mileage standards.
