  1. Changing oil but not filter, how much oil to add?

    So I’m getting my oil changed, and nooooo I live in a condo and can’t do it myself in the parking garage….so don’t bug me about it, but could not get a new filter due to hoarders…it’s been a year and 6K mile and I’m at 10 percent on the oil life reading…so if I drain the oil and don’t change the...

  3. Running AC some in winter to keep AC system lubed up.

    So is it true that you should run the AC a few times in winter to keep the compressor free and running? Or is this an urban legend thing. On my first 2018 I had the compressor and other bits replaced….it worked fine. Then all winter long I did not run AC at all, soooo the first time I did….I got...
  4. Clean throttle body?

    Does anyone recommend taking the throttle body off and cleaning it? My CTSVs called for doing it, my 911’s did not. But when I looked at them they had indeed built up some carbon gook or something in and around the TB plate. I used spray solvent to clean them and the car ran a bit better after...
  5. Who else is on their second 350?

    I traded my 2018 LFG (bought new) last October for an S4, but this June I realized I hate flappy paddles and wanted more excitement, so I picked up a used 2018 lighting blue, with old man seats. The LFG had the engine replaced, the rear cylinder plate replaced, the AC compressor replaced too. I...
  6. Well back in the fold….

    Traded the S4 to get back into a 350 today. Got it used as a 2018 with old man seats and electronic package. It’s the deep blue with black stripes. 42 k miles and I paid 57k. A bit high but I really wanted it and prices go up each day. Got it in Warrenton Va and it’s a Florida car, has a really...
  7. Got my spare tire kit in.

    Got it from auto authority. It’s nice, quality kit with tire and wheel, jack, spacer, lugnuts and wrench. Fits right in the trunk wheel well. I suppose I should keep the foam piece that was there, as 30 years from now at a Car show points might be deducted from a judge that says it’s not...
  8. Get a actual spare tire..

    I was doing 80 on RT50 today, hit something and right front tire deflated in about 8 seconds..pulled over and tried the goo pump the car came with....it was useless. Too big a hole or cut. So called Ford roadside and they sent a flatbed as I requested within an hour and off to drop it off at...
  9. Will Trump take ANY blame for a tanked market?

    So he likes to claim the market when it’s up....that he caused it. But funny thing, now that it’s tanked he’s blaming others...so now why is that? How convieeeeeent! The virus is just the trigger, the huge federal deficit is lurking and the PE ratios are out of whack not to mention bond...
  10. Would Ford ever make a convertible GT350?

    I had a GT ragtop last month on a vacation....nice and fun to drive. I was thinking, it would have been even nicer to have 350 convertible....would anyone buy one? How about making one yourself or could a shop do it? (NOT Ass Monkeys) I assume its new rear quarter panels, the top and...
  11. Thoughts on a rental 19 GT convertible

    So I had a 2019 GT convertible rental for four days in upper Minnesota. I have a 2018 GT350, so how do they compare? Well I do like to push cars and see how they do..not just in a straight line....but in turn and braking. When I got the car in Duluth I dropped the top, turned on the seat heater...
  12. Can you add the leather dash tops from the GT?

    So eyyyyy I’m up in Minnesoooooota for a few days and I got a 2019 GT convertible for a few days. It’s got full leather which includes leather tops with silver stitching on the upper dash pads. It looks nice and I was wondering if that could be bought as a part and added in. Is it hard to remove...

    So after two visits to dealer to get the trash bag in the wind noise at 4K rpm fixed, when I told them how to fix it....on the second visit.they agreed to put the updated part on that’s covered in the vinyl coating. They called the tech hotline and other super secret sources of info and realized...
  15. AC died today....

    Well in addition to getting the new block plate next week, AC took a shitter on a 95 degree day....nothing but hot air coming out. No odd noises or anything. Did sense a slight burnt smell though. Not sure if it’s related but probably is. I really like driving this car but this in addition to...
