OEM Factory OIL in the '13 GT - HELP!!
Hello again mustang fans,
OK, I just got my '13 mustang GT/Premium 2 days ago and everything is absolutely beautiful. That Car, That Car, That Car, WOW!!!! Anyway, I went today to pick up a Ford OEM Lockable Fuel Cap ($24) (There are a couple of Ricers living next to me and I started to worry, Just a little) and a quart of Oil to carry in the car just in case I need it.
I read on the Forums that some new '12 and '13 GT owners were burning plenty of oil. One even had a dry dipstick with less than 2000 miles.
OK, So I go to the Ford Dealer Parts Dept where I purchased the car and I ask the Parts Dept guy for a quart of oil for a '13 Mustang GT/MT
Well, The Parts Dept guy had no IDEA what oil I needed and asked What engine I had and I said, well '13 GT/5.0 and then he asked for my VIN# and then told me to get the Manual. The manual states that I should use:
MOTORCRAFT SAE 5W/20 - Synthetic Blend Motor Oil (US), OR
MOTORCRAFT SAE 5W/20 - FULL Synthetic Motor Oil (US).
He still, nor I, have any idea what oil is in my car from the factory and if you can mix the two!!
He kind of took an educated guess and said I would be safe with the BLENDED OIL. Your guess is good as mine. So I have a Quart of the Blended Synthetic in the trunk in case of an emergency.
VERY Confused and so was he. Now I am worried if I have to pour that Blended oil into my engine.
Any ideas as to what Motor Oil the factory installed in my 2013 GT/Premium with the 6 Speed Manual. We couldn't find anything in the manual. He should know this stuff, not me. I have my profession and he has his which is to have complete knowledge of all the parts (oil) that go into the Ford Cars for Parts customers and god forbid the Service Dept that has to add a quart of oil to a new or older car.
Help!! Thank You Mustang genuises!!!!!!
