    5W20 oil is required for your car. Ford uses part synthetic Motorcraft.

    We do not have the ability to share images, sorry.

    Honestly - with the extreme low cost of oil changes at many places, the environmental concerns with oil disposal and the effort and tools required to do it-- maybe it would be better to just have your oil changed professionally? Just a thought. I can appreciate your interest in doing it yourself. It's just when we hear about a consumer asking where the oil pan and the filter are located -- so much can be damaged by not doing it right that it isn't worth attempting unless you have knowledge or a helping hand. Good luck.
