Usually it's SAE 5W40, RN 0700 or RN0710. Can't say for sure without further details such like power or said DPF/nonDPF.

When choosing oil remember to put the mid/lowSAPS if your car has DPF (not likely). You can use fullSAPS oil if no DPF on board.

PS. It's dCi, not TDCI, the former is Ford's acronym
