Has anyone tried the new 5W-20 motor oil yet? I had the oil changed in the Mrs.' 99 Ford Contour yesterday and at this point can't tell a lot of difference yet, but I am sure time will tell.
What I know about it is that Ford "developed" this grade of oil. I don't know what, if any, benefits exist with it but I plan to put it in my
Sundance (both engine and manual transaxle) when I get it home.
On another note, has anyone used 20W-50 in their 2.2/2.5 engine? I used it during the summer months in an old Cavalier (89 model, 160K miles) I had
that leaked a quart every 200-300 miles, and it slowed the leak to a quart every 1,500-2,000 miles. Didn't keep the car into the winter, so couldn't tell you what it did then. Any ideas? Bad idea? Good idea? Help!
