You might want to take a look at this post.

About the tranny oil, use what the manufacturer suggests. If you can find a synthetic version of the tranny oil the manufacturer recommends, you can use the synthetic so you don't have to change it as often.

This website has some good info. Look under the Lubrication section.[thumb]

Then click on Owners Guide link for more info.

Here's a shorcut to the Under the hood link on the Owners Guide page.

Anyone know how to tell which 5-speed transmission is installed in a Focus [?]

IB5 or MTX 75 [?]_[confused]

If it is zetec, mtx-75
if spi, IB5

I think thats right.

Another way to tell is that if it has the reverse lockout, it is mtx75.
