Oil change today...
So, I took my car to the ford dealer for an oil change today, only reason I decided to go to the dealership, was to get them to install my warrenty replacement brake/clutch pedal covers (IUP parts) So anyway, I'm sitting there reading a magazine, service advisor walks up to me and goes "How attached are you to your car"? I looked at him & said "What happened"? He goes "Well, you have coolant in your oil...."
So I asked him to show me....we walk out, the mechanic drains the oil....it was DARK DARK DARK DARK DARK DARK brown, kinda soupy/muddy/rusty looking, but I didn't see a hit of green anywhere, like they said they saw....I watched him drain every last drop of oil out of the oil pan.....the oil was as I described....but doesen't the 04 V6 stang use red coolant? The other thing....the coolant resavour is LOW....the coolant level in the resavour is about at the maximum low mark on the tank....So what do you guys think? They ran a preassure check....came back normal. This would be covered under warrenty, so no cost to me, if there really is a problem. Do the 99+ 3.8 engines have headgasket issues?
