Oh yea, I already called Ford, and Chrysler I got my answer, or I wouldn't be posting this.

But if you insist, ask them if non API SSO 0W30 ruins the engine that Ford specifically calls for 5W20 will Ford pay for it? Make sure you taylor your question to get the answer you're looking for Tim.

Also ask them what they think of the 25,000 mile filters too. You should ask Toyota about them too while you're on your fact finding mission. I'm not drinking the Kool Aid, sorry.

So I take it that my question as it stands meets your approval since they only seem to spec 5w20 and the Ford spec for my suggested vehicle. Correct? I'm going to call Ford Motor Company Customer Relations Center in Dearborn, MI 1-800-392-Ford as instructed in my Ford owners manual if that meets your approval. Like I said before, only Ford Motor Oil Company can deny warranty coverage, not the dealer as you said.
