Jump to new posts Winter storage? by Camprunner @ 10/20/14 09:06 AM

If I change my oil in my Mustang before I put it away for the winter do I need to dump that oil when it comes out of storage or can I run it for a normal change interval when it comes out?

Anecdotal evidence, but.... a coworker has an Audi A4 2.0T that's only a couple of years old that needed a new engine due to excessive oil consumption. Audi took really good care of him though, and the new engine is nice and tight. With this parti

If the car is around tonight I'll snap a photo for you. The rear bank's clip should mount to the coil bracket (stud/nut) and tuck down on the right side as viewed from the front- although some go do the left side.

I wouldn't stress it. Check the level and next time you're doing an oil change you can drain and fill to the correct level.

Only advantage would be that you're able to get a more accurate PSI on a cold tire. Besides that there is no real advantage.

I cant give an honest review of it because my annual mileage is so low but i can say after 5 yrs and 15K it shows no material deterioration. The plumbing on the clean side to the throttle body is still clean and dust free. I would buy it again.
