The condition can also be detected by fine nylon and or aluminum particles present in the engine oil. The objective was to develop a new V8 engine that would surpass Ford's earlier V8s in every meaningful way, from power and efficiency to emissions performance and smoothness of operation. Originally specs for oil were 10W-30 in Australian models and then switched to 5W-20 for North American models. All Modular V8s, except for the new 5. Vehicles equipped with the 16-valve 4.
