Anybody know what the correct weight of mobil one is for the 2003 cobra's?? Is it 5W30 or 0W20 vs other?

Thanks a lot.

5W-20 All temps
Although this viscosity is not available in Mobil 1®, you can use Mobil 1® with SuperSyn™ 0W-20 with confidence. 5W-20 is available in Mobil Drive Clean Oil™. It is always wise to check with your vehicle's manufacturer for viscosity grade recommendations.


Benefits of Mobil with SuperSyn 0W-20

Classified as “Energy Conserving,” the highest fuel economy claim in the U.S.
Meets stringent European fuel efficiency standard M111.
Provides the quickest cold starts of any Mobil 1 viscosity, and offers faster protection than conventional motor oils.
Provides a wider temperature range of protection compared to 5w20
Exceeds Ford service-fill requirements, including Ford WSS-M2C-153H.
Exceeds the motor oil requirements for all new Honda vehicles.
Exceeds API SL/CF and ILSAC GF-3.
Exceeds ACEA A1/B1.

This is from Mobils' site, hope it helps. Personally I wouldn't be to concerned using either in my car but in the event of a warranty problem you'd want something that met Fords' requirements.

If WSS-M2C-153H is the present requirement, which I believe it is, the 0w20 would fill the bill for Fords' warranty requirements.

Thanks a lot for the great info. I heard some one else who also recommend the mobil synth 0W20.
