Ford Oil Specifications

Ford approvals are used when selecting engine oils for Ford, Land Rover, and Jaguar vehicles.

Ford Approvals

Automotive leader Ford pays special attention to the requirements of the oils and fluids used in the vehicles released from the company’s assembly lines. The testing of oils and fluids is carried out according to the strictest and longest tests by the company’s engineers.

Ford Oil Specifications

Ford oil approvals, like those of other manufacturers, cannot be called a fad, or something completely unnecessary. The proprietary specifications were designed to provide maximum performance and a level of protection for ever more advanced vehicle components.

What is a Ford specification?

Ford specifications are symbolic designations for the properties of the engine oil for a particular type of Ford vehicle and are how you choose the oil for your Ford vehicle. By selecting oil according to the appropriate specification, you ensure that you are using the right oil for your Ford.

Ford Engine Oil Approvals

Many major manufacturers back in the 90’s began to introduce their own specifications for oils and operating fluids, and the Ford Motor Company was not left out, and were introduced their own oil tolerances Ford.

Motor Oils

Ford WSS-M2C913-A

Engine oil, Initial and service fill, SAE 5W-30. This specification meets the ILSAC GF-2 and ACEA A1-98 and B1-98 and additional Ford requirements.

Ford WSS-M2C913-B

The Ford M2C913-B specification is released in Europe for initial fill engine oils used for lubrication of spark ignition engines using gasoline and for compression ignition engines using diesel fuels. The specification is also used to define engine oils for servicing Ford engines where applicable. The oil shall meet all the requirements of the ILSAC GF-2 and GF-3 specification, the ACEA A1-98 and B1-98 specification, and additional Ford requirements.

Ford WSS-M2C913-C

Fully backwards compatible and is strongly recommended for all applications that currently require the specification Ford M2C913-B. The new engine oil provides various benefits to the customer such as improved fuel economy benefits and high robustness to biodiesel fuels.

Ford WSS-M2C913-D

Introduced in 2012, oils meeting this specification are recommended for all Ford diesel engines except Ford Ka TDCi models manufactured before 2009 and Ford Galaxy 1.9 TDi models manufactured between 2000 and 2006. A product meeting this specification is especially recommended for diesel engines where M2C913-B or M2C913-C oils were initially required. An oil meeting this specification must be used in Ford Transit vehicles manufactured from 2012 onward with Duratorq 2.2 engine. Oils meeting this specification can be used with extended oil change intervals and are also suitable to be used in engines running on biodiesel or high sulfur diesel.

Ford WSS-M2C917-A
