In the FFE since there really is no transmission there is no need to change the transmission oil.

There isn't even transmission oil in the thing--its only gear oil.

Now if you are talking about a gas Focus you're in the wrong place.

Actually it does have Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) in the FFE gear box. Specifically it's Ford Mercon LV. If you change the gear oil do not use anything other than Mercon LV. I would suspect there's probably a wide range of lubricants that would work but without having any knowledge of the lubrication requirements I'd just stick with the factory spec. I seem to vaguely remember that it takes 2 or 2.5 quarts. I have no idea where I might have read that though so don't quote me.
