    #1. The Ford Motor Company calls for 5W-20 oil in the crankcase of a 2008 Crown Vic. What's the scoop with the wrong engine oil viscosity? The brand and type of oil may be able to help quiet valve train racket. 5W-20 Mobil1 has very strong detergents to clean the inside of the engine. Mobil1 remains more fluid at low temperatures which helps cold weather starting.
