AMSOIL Oil and fliter

2002 – 2005 Crown Victoria, Grand Marquis, Oil Change service

The oil service is the life of the vehicle.  The oil we install in our vehicle is similar to the vehicle as the blood we pump through the heart.  The quality of the fluid and filtration is an issue to consider.  Take care of your vehicle and it will take care of you, and last a lifetime.

The oil drain plug is an issue I have seen as a problem over the years of service.  Which is one reason I recommend doing it yourself.  Many vehicles that I have serviced have had the drain plug extremely over tightened.  This can cause many problems.  When you reinstall the drain plug just tighten by hand and then about 1/2 a turn with wrench.  Don’t OVER tighten!

When installing the drain plug go ahead and cover it with some PTFE Thread Sealant Tape.  This will help it seal and prevent any leaks from the drain plug.

The oil filter is rather similar to the drain plug, it is usually over tightened.  Many filters are over-tightened.  I have had to remove many oil filters over the years with special tools due to the over-tightening.  When you install the new filter go ahead and fill it with new oil and then install it by hand and tighten it by hand.  Don’t over tighten this with a wrench or special tool, it will cause an issue when you get ready to remove it on the next oil change.

If you have any questions or comments, please let us know.

Take care and have a great day!

    author.I will always bookmark your blog and will eventually come back someday.
    I want to encourage continue your great writing, have a nice holiday weekend!

    1. Sorry to post again. After getting it all put back teohtger when i try to roll down the window i noticed the grinding noise at the top pulley near the top of the door. It appears to be binding up there, is it possible that it just hopped off the pulley? thanks for your help! I think i might just replace the entire thing anyway lol.

      1. This could be the alignment of the window. Go ahead and take it off and look at the alignment area. The window alignments have small “gasket” areas. Could be issues of this nature. You can go directly to our website and email me directly…I would be glad to help you out…take care and have a great day! Charles @ http://www.PowerSynthetics.com
