oil change

  1. 2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    I changed my oil last summer and only drove roughly 1K miles before I unexpectedly had to park the car, and haven't driven it since. I'm going to be getting the car back on the road, hopefully, and am wondering if the Royal Purple synthetic that I have in the car is still good.

    I just did my first oil change WTF! The filter is behind a shroud with three 8mm screws that MAY OR MAY NOT fall off the shroud and the filter is at a weird angle. the back of the shroud is hinged permanently so you cannot push a floor oil drip pan under it the only pan that fits there is the...

    Ok, real noob question here... What is the oil capacity of a 5.0 (302) that I pulled out of a 91 F150 for the 65? I had assumed, what with the blocks being identical and all, that the capacity would remain the same as the 289 at 5 quarts, including filter. However, when i went to double check...

    So I just got my new 2012 V6(base, auto, kona blue) for two days and it had 11 miles when I bought it. I've heard about breaking in a new car, like I shouldn't take it hard in the first 100 miles or so and I pretty much followed it by not exceeding 2000 RPM. But I just couldn't hold on driving...

    My last oil change with 8 quarts of synthetic blend cost $88. After research, I found that the mixture of regular oil to full synthetic oil is 3 to 1 to achieve the same synthetic blend. On the GT, that means I can attain the exact ratio by using 6 qts regular 5w20 and 2 qts 5w20 full synthetic...

    Hey guys.Has anyone heard of a topside oil changer?It's this device that pumps the oil out through the dipstick area using vacuum instead of having to get under the car and un-bolting.I've read good reviews,and might consider it,since I stripped some threads last oil change.So has anyone ever...
