Oil Pressure relief Valve

3165 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  05mystang
I have a 2005 V6, there is a problem with oil pressure, it keeps blowing the oil filter.

My guess is that it is the Oil pressure relief valve.

Does anybody know how i can replace this and where it is located in the engine?

Thank You

I'm not sure what "blowing the oil filter" means. Most of the filters for these engines have a nasty habit of leaving the old gasket on the engine so if you don't look up there, remove it and clean the mating surface you'll have a nice surprise when you re-start. You have to raise the car and put it on stands to change the oil in order to do it right.

+1 on the 5W-30. These engines have tight tolerances and need the thin oil on start-up in cold temperatures.
