In 2002, Ford began production of the Ford Fusion. It was a five-door minivan. The Fusion created for Europe stands out clearly from the American version and always presents itself as angular, regardless of the facelift.
The Fusion offers enough space, even for tall people thanks to the additional leg room and higher roof. In addition, it has relatively low fuel consumption and emits few pollutants for its age. One of the big attractions of the Fusion and part of the reason it has been so popular over the years is was cheap when new, so used versions of the car are really cheap these days.
Ford offered the petrol engine with 80 hp as the basic model. Those who were willing to pay a surcharge were able to get the more powerful engine with 100 hp. Those who wanted a diesel, on the other hand, initially only had one engine to choose from, later a second one was added. However, both were not equipped with a particle filter. Only from 2005 could this be retrofitted for a fee. As a result, all engines met the Euro 4 emissions standard.
From the facelift in 2005, Ford offered two more engines that were special from a technical point of view. The previously existing engines were supplemented by a 1.25 litre petrol engine, which had a very low fuel consumption of 6.5 litres. In addition, Ford presented a new diesel engine that had a displacement of 1.6 litres and also had very low fuel consumption. This was 4.5 litres and resulted in pollutant emissions of 119 grams of CO2 per kilometer. At the time, both engines were therefore both fuel-efficient and, and by the standards of the time emissions-efficient.
Motor oil is a vital part of your Ford Fusion's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key job is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts and helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.
Regularly checking and changing your Ford Fusion engine oil is really important. Every time you start and run your car, very fine by-products from the combustion in the engine will be collected in the engine oil. This is one of the reasons why over time the oil goes black. If these contaminants build up too much and exceed the capacity of the oil it can have a negative impact on your car’s overall efficiency and actually effect its performance as it creates sludge and increased wear in the engine block.
Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.
So which engine oil should you buy for your Ford Fusion? Whether you are topping up your Ford Fusion oil or doing a full change of your Ford Fusion's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.
