Cavero, Change the upper and lower "O" rings on the injectors. Very easy job, just make sure to lube the O rings with motor oil. You can get the O rings over the counter from Ford or your local Napa store. No more leaks end of story.

I was able to drive my Mustang today it is 15 degrees and the roads are for the most part salt free. What snow we have is now frozen again so no water on the roads either. It had been 27 days since my last Mustang fix. Listened very carefully to the engine and no tick or other unusual noises at 2500 miles. Supposed to snow again later today so it will most likely be 27 days or longer before my next Mustang drive. It is now hooked back up to the battery tender.

Checked the engine bay for any mouse activity and checked the battery tender. Then I tucked her back to bed.

When I lived in Maine on a farm. There were Chipmonks everywhere in our barn. My Mustang GT was stored for about three months. I always added metal mesh scrubbers from the dollar store to the exhaust pipes. Those suckers loved climbing up into the pipes. Why I'll never know.

^^. Got my passenger side recall today. Have to check and see if my dealer has one. Won’t be for at least another month before the weather is good enough to get the beast out.

Did pull the cover and trickle charge the battery on Sunday. Amazing how you forget how awesome these cars look. Miss driving mine. Is it spring yet? As we get more snow today.

Steeda goodies

Installed these Steeda goodies. Makes a difference on a lowered GT PP1 with F.R. Springs and struts with Steeda sway bars

Oil change on my 2018 gt

Also changed my oil, first 3 were dealer perks. For the past 45 years I have always done my oil changes. And I have done that on cars, motor homes, bikes, boats and anything else that contains oil. Nothing but nothing could prepare you for the high force of oil that going to come out of that pan. I took the forum's advice and placed a piece of cardboard about 4 to 6 inches from the drain plug and let it pour. With that method I didnt spill a drop. Then installed a UPR drain plug.

thatís what I told myself when only 1 car saw what was going down., he saw it all & was shocked I didnít go down the mountain. Got a call from a taltal loss adjuster & he tried to undervalue it😡 Iíd sent him every picture & receipt & told him to fix it, heíd said well over $20,000.00 in damages . So I did get what it was worth & was allowed to take all my aftermarket stuff Ď replace the stock stuff. So my A.M laxer etched valve covers, both K&Nís lit sill plates, staggered bullitts ,to sell off if I donít find another.

Wow, scary stuff man. That's horrible.
At least the car is totaled and you got your aftermarket stuff back. I would want my car to be totaled so I could buy another one instead of going through the repair process. All set with that.

Good luck going forward!!

Not sure I like this autoload feature on page-up. Seems like it hides some of the posts when you try to get back to the bottom.
