    Late Model Mustang Owners Question

    The 5.0 in its current iteration is bullet proof as is the 10 speed auto. I have a 2012 that dynoed at 600+ Hp. It's been supercharged since 2014 and hasn't given me any problems. It's rattle free and feels as solid as the day I drove it out of the showroom. The S550 platform is better than the S197 in almost every aspect except weight. I'd stick with the 5.0 because 4 cylinder turbos sound like 4 cylinder turbos.

    What do HATE MOST about your Edge or MKX?

    I can vouch for the JetSpeed Dryer It's a bargain for what it costs. I use it on my Mustang which has more nooks and crannies than I care to count count. It's perfect for mirrors, fuel access doors, wheels etc.

    Mustang SUV

    I'm pretty sure that it will appeal to lefties, righties and to those that don't give two figs about political ideology . By the way the new GT 500 doesn't come with a stick shift either. My prediction is that it will sell like hot cakes.

    Mustang SUV

    I've owned Mustangs for 39 years and still do. My initial thought on the Mach-E was WTF Ford. I've since settled down and now I'm looking forward to taking one for a test drive when the opportunity presents itself. When I bought the Nautilus I had the thought that it could be the last IC powered vehicle that I buy new. Maybe I'll end up with 2 Mustangs in the garage one day, IC and EV and both ridiculously fast. 🤣

    Nope. I'm guessing you made a similar comment elsewhere?

    Neither did Porsche owners when the Cayenne was released. Without it the brand wouldn't exist today.

  8. I agree with your mechanic; that's a lot of rust for a new vehicle. After 3 winters my Sorento had a lot less surface rust than what shows on your Edge. We get a fair bit of snow here and the roads are constantly salted November to March.

    Congrats on paying off your Edge. May it give you many more years of trouble free service. This is the best forum for info on Edge/MKX/Nautilus vehicles.

    ST Oil Filter

    Curious to see what Fumoto comes up with for a drain valve installation. Their ball valve design is reliable and convenient. I've bought several of them over the years.

    Fast, Clean Oil Changes

    Based on the information you provided I'm going to have to agree with you that it likely wont work.

    Fast, Clean Oil Changes

    It goes right to the bottom of the pan. You can hear it contact the plastic pan. I measured the inserted length and it extends 40mm beyond the dipstick length. It measured approximately 60mm of oil on the end of the tube. The Mityvac 7201 comes with 2 different tubing diameters. The smaller diameter fits just fine if you apply a little twist as you insert it....ooh that sounds kind of obscene 😆.

    Fast, Clean Oil Changes

    Anyone use an evacuator pump to do oil changes? My Malibu and Lincoln both have top placement oil filters so I decided pick up a Mityvac 7201 and give it a try. I used it on the Malibu first and it pulled out 4.5 liters which is the oil capacity of the car. The nice thing about it is that it also functions as a pump and will empty the spent oil out right back into the jug making for a no fuss no mess proposition. Bring the car up to temperature, shut it off and let it sit for about 10 minutes and then proceed. It took about 8 pumps to get the oil flowing and none after that to drain the entire contents. Mercedes, BMW etc. have been doing it this way for years. I can see why now.

    Changing Oil Brands

    Another good oil is Pennzoil Platinum. It is readily available and often discounted 40% + online rebates. I use it exclusively in my daily driven vehicles. I run Amsoil Signature 10w-30 in my Mustang. A good choice for high horsepower applications. Amsoil Signature Scotty Kilmer is a shill.
