I now have 2 Ford products that both spec 5W20 - though they are quite different.

I recently inherited a 2014 Ford Taurus SEL 3.5L V6 with 3,300 miles. My Grandmother only drove it about 7 miles to the grocery store and though I don't know exactly how often she had it serviced I suspect it was often.

Add that to my wife's '14 Lincoln Navigator L 5.4 3v V8 with 22k miles.

One uses an Iolm for 7,500 to 10k/1 year OCI while the other has 7,500/6 month OCI.

So is there an oil you'd recommend for both?

If they aren't burning oil a 5w20 is fine. If you're burning oil a 5w30 will probably help

Out of warranty, no brainer, move up to a 5 or even 10w30 full synthetic.. I doubt you'll miss the 0.25 mpg hit

Don't understand why I'd want to have higher viscosity on the 'lower' side of the oil rating?

Lots of benefits to 10w-30. I've been running full synthetic 10w-30 for 12 years or so. Lower Noak / More Shear Stable / fewer Vll / most have a higher HTHS number (not all) : Mobil 1 10w-30HM HTHS is 3.5 : Don't fear the bleeper

Most the people on this board are scared to death of 10W-30.

10W30 is just soooooo thick!! I use that molasses in my 300ZX. On cool south Texas mornings I make sure to use a block heater to avoid startup wear.

Is that the Pennzoil Platinum 10W-30 that Gena sent you ? You haven't sent it to Blackstone yet ?

Man I mailed it off and the [censored] postal service lost it. It never arrived at Blackstone. That's the third time I've had mail get lost. Gena is truly AWESOME!! I now use Pennzoil Platinum in everything.

How the heck is a 2014 Taurus with only 3,300 miles out of warranty? It would have come with a 3-year/36,000 mile basic warranty as well as a 5-year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty. I can see the basic warranty being over depending on the in-service date, but not the powertrain warranty. 2cents

PS: The Lincoln powertrain warranty should still be good as well. 4-year/50,000 mile basic, 6-year/70,000 mile powertrain.
