I am running 10w 40 at the moment cause it was free next oil change however I am going to use the recommended 5w 30, no adverse effects that I can notice with the 10w 40

Ford now say 5w30 synth for all. I found it wept past seals so went back to 10w40.
Regardless it's 6.15l including a new filter.
