When I picked up my 2003 Sable a few weeks ago, they kept putting
"Valvoline Oil" paper floor matts in the car, and I kept tossing them
out. Finally, I just told the salesman I don't want -any- paper floor
matts in the car please?
But when it came time today to buy oil, I found Valvoline at K-Mart,
it _specifically_ states on the container(s):
"For use in Ford, Honda & Mazda Vehicles in which 5W-20 is
and All preceding API Gasoline categories, ILSAC GF1, GF2 and GF3
Now all I wanted was Mobil 1, but couldn't find it in 0W20 weight.
Besides, it was going for damn near $5 a quart ! So I bought the
Valvoline, and if I get a *hassle* from the dealer, I will show him
the oil container where it says it meeds Ford criteria, and remind him
of those damn Valvoline paper floor matts.
So I guess what I am getting at is, I can't find anywhere to buy
Motorcraft 5W20 without going to dealer, but it looks like K-Mart
Valvoline will not void the warranty.
