  1. 2011 - 2014 V6 Mustang Tech
    Hello. Recently, I had my oil changed from 5W-20 to 5W-40. This was done with the advice from the shop, since I seem to have issues with oil pressure (it's low). I live in a colder climate, and the mechanics emphasized that this would be a good idea to do, long-term - I have to admit, I know...
  2. 2011-2014 Mustang Talk
    So This might be long but please bare with me. Last October(2020) I was driving home one night and all of the sudden I hear this little poof from the engine and it just slowly starts to decline in power and I turned it off just in case something was seriously wrong. I went to try and restart it...
  3. 2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    So, I have no idea what's going on with my engine... I have an 06 GT with 96k miles. I'm the second owner and the previous owner took amazing care of this thing. While it has been in my possession I have changed the oil every 2 or 3 thousand miles with amsoil signature series 5W-20. The car...
  4. 2011 - 2014 V6 Mustang Tech
    Hello everyone. So, I've recently bought a manual 2014 V6 S197. It's post-accident (fixed up after a front crash), and I love the car dearly. A few days after buying it, the oil pressure light came on. The oil level is OK. There are no sounds coming from the engine. The light comes and goes...
  5. V6 Tech
    Howdy all, Pretty much what the title says, a 1998 v6 automatic, I have good even compression across all cylinders but I am still seeing a lot of oil in my coolant, mostly collecting in the reservoir. My dipstick and oil cap look clear of contamination as well and so does my transmission fluid...
  6. 4.6L Tech
    Hi Guys, I need some info/opinions. I did an oil change on my recently purchased 1997 Cobra (4.6 DOHC) the other day with the front of the car up on ramps (8.5” high). Upon completion, I added the required 6 quarts of 5W30, and had “charged” the new oil filter. I’d say I gave it anywhere...
  7. 4.6L Tech
    Hello, New here, not new to working on cars. Hi guys, I just bought my first Mustang, a 1997 SVT Cobra. I've wanted a Mustang since I was a kid and am happy to finally be part of the community. I have the 1997 DOHC 32 valve 4.6 Liter Cobra Engine in the car. I don't have an owner's manual for...
  8. 2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    Okay, so I’ll start by staying that I bought this bolt-on 2011 gt back in April, and a couple months ago the ac compressor went out (not the worst thing in the world since I live in Seattle). Around that same time I started to have random power loss above 3k rpm. We ended up simply cutting the...
  9. 2015+ 3.7L Mustang Talk
    Hey, I just bought a new 2017 Mustang V6 base. Was burning oil then leaked a bunch, dealer found the leak, as they state, "...coming from oil filter housing..." "...replace oil filter and housing..." great. Stated they cleaned up too. Keep in mind I'm barely driving it, and using my winter...
  10. 4.6L Tech
    I am thinking about buying a 2002 Mustang GT with the 2V. The car only has 48k miles and is in good condition, however, the valve covers look dirty and stained/splotches with what looks like oil. Should these be a sign of worry? Are they leaking? I'll attach the pictures I have. Any help would...
  11. 4.6L Tech
    I've been trying to diagnose my 2000 GT Vert leak for quite awhile. I replaced the oil filter gasket and that fixed the huge leak in the front, I have a very small power steering leak, but so far it has stopped leaking at the reservoir after I replaced the oil filter gasket This leak goes all...
  12. 2011 - 2014 V6 Mustang Tech
    I have watched some videos and now want to start doing the oil changes myself. I noticed this quick drain oil valve (which looks cool) and was planning on using that to make it easier: Mustang Quick-Drain Oil Change Valve (11-16 GT, V6, BOSS, EcoBoost) - Free Shipping Question, with the oil...
  13. 2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    Hey guys I'm just finishing up my header install. As expected it was a huge PIA and I broke off a manifold bolt AND the dipstick tube trying to get it out. We have a replacement dipstick tube on order, but would it be okay to start it up with a cork in the hole for like a minute or less until it...
  14. 4.6L Tech
    I have a 2000 Mustang GT. Yesterday morning my car did not start, completely out of the blue. It would run the starter just fine but wouldn't turn the engine over at all. I was fearing the worst and researching all day and then when I got home from work, it started just perfectly, and has not...
  15. Classic Talk
    I am new to Fords and have a question about oil level as measured by the dipstick. When this car measures low and I add oil it seems as though it takes a lot of oil to bring it to the top line. In other words,on most dipsticks the distance between the lines usually represents one quart, so its...
  16. Classic Tech
    Hi everyone. Spring is almost here so I am getting the cars ready for the summer season. Last year I bought a 1969 Mach 1 428CJ. I would like to change the oil but am not exactly sure which of the many modern oils to use. I know additives are much different now (mainly no zinc) so I want to get...

    So two oil lines are run to my Vortech but I started noticing oil in my air intake lines. How bad is this? I would give more info but I don't even know what all you would need to know.
  18. V6 Tech
    I have noticed an oil leak from somewhere above the oil filter. From looking around at various forums, it seems like a common problem would be for the oil filter adapter gasket to go bad in 4.6 L engine. But not many people have complained about this in a v6 3.8l engine. Has this happened to...
  19. V6 Tech
    I have a 2000 Mustang with the 3.8l V6 with around 150k on it. When I parked it, it seemed to be periodically losing oil pressure. I first assumed that it may be the sending unit until the lifters started rattling really bad and the engine started smoking. It would smoke fairly bad when it was...
  20. 2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    Brought my 2014 GT into the dealership last week for its first oil change at about 6,000 miles. After I left, I parked the car on a flat surface, waited about 15 minutes, and checked the oil level. It was really hard to tell where it was at because it was new oil, but it looked like it was...
