    Hi fellow mustang owners! I am in an urgent situation right now. This past weekend I changed my oil & filter and automatic transmission fluid and filter as well.

    I have a 98' Mustang 3.8l and the oil pressure gauge is reading between the "MA" on "NORMAL" when its usually between the "RM". Can anyone tell why it might be doing this, and what i can do to fix it. Thanks ahead of time for all advice.

    Hello everyone, about a week ago I started hearing a ticking noise during cold starts. I also noticed that my oil pressure would drop all the way when I would start it up. So I'm thinking if my lifters are ticking, then I'm losing oil pressure? After the engine has warmed up a bit after driving...

    I want to install an auto-meter oil pressure gauge on my 1995 3.8L. However, the original sending unit is small and in a tight location behind the alternator bracket, I do believe. I was wondering if anyone has installed the auto-meter sending unit on their v6? Do you have any pics that may...
