  1. Drain plug leak

    You probably got conned by an eBay vendor too; the same thing happened to me, but fortunately, no leak. Until I went back and read the fine print, it said 'OEM type'; SOBs. It was a 'Dorman', I think. I found a legitimate Ford parts dealer, and bought the one for GT350s, which have a square hole...
  2. Predict the Auction Price, '19 Bullitt on Mecum 4/10

    Just sold my immaculate 2019 fully optioned Bullitt with 4.5K miles to Vroom, for $43,884.00. And they buy a lot of auction cars... so it's going to sell north of that for certain. I say $45,500, since it hasn't been mentioned :).
  3. Traded my Bullitt for a Mach E today

    I own a Tesla, and drove a Mach-E out of curiosity, and wasn't impressed at all. But not surprised by that, since it's Ford's basically first attempt at EVs, and Tesla is miles away from everybody, with decades of head start. Having said that, what's with the moaning when accelerating? Sounds...
  4. SOLD MY CAR :(

    Especially with insurance. I've been paying for insurance for decades, to the tune of around $175K. But had the bad luck to get hit with a rare cancer, so the aholes don't want to pay for anything not approved by the FDA... but how the hell is that going to happen without enough sick people? So...
  5. SOLD MY CAR :(

    Thanks a million for all the best wishes; that means a lot to me. Just dropped off the Bullitt to transport truck, so it's a done deal. Well, just hope I get paid. Ha ha. But not worried about that; last car I sold to them it was pretty seamless as well. If somebody else needs to sell his...
  6. SOLD MY CAR :(

    Thank you for all the support; greatly appreciated. I screwed up with the model, after looking at so many. It's the Hyundai Palisade Calligraphy, which looks and is more upscale than the Telluride. My wife liked it a lot better, and since I'm going to buy a women's vehicle anyway (ha ha), might...
  7. SOLD MY CAR :(

    Hey gang, had to sell my beloved Bullitt. It was just sitting in the garage, and with 5 freaking (rare cancer) relapses in 6 years (I need treatment again now), I've spent a small fortune (and counting), so my big house with my 4-car garage is gone, and can only have 1 car now, and the Bullitt...
  8. Bullitt 2019 Green/black, fully loaded (+ cover). Only 4,510 miles. Immaculate. Original owner. El Paso, TX

    Sold to Vroom for $43,884 (I was ASKING $44K). Hope this helps somebody.
  9. High Idle IAT's

    Bullitts have an 'open element'... but it's only open when you open the hood. It seals really well against the thick hood insulator when hood is closed, so it's basically at least as good as the stock closed box. But it has a larger (effective area) filter. Both get air from the front of the...
  10. Amsoil SS 5W30 vs Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 5W30

    If your engine is still under warranty, you'd be smart to use an oil that meets Ford's specs, and of those 2 oils, only Pennzoil UP does, so up to you :). But I'd still use PUP even out of warranty, since I change the oil every 5K miles. No need for a 'boutique' oil with those intervals, and...
  11. Oil Life Monitor vs Storage time

    Nothing monitors the oil, so the 'OLM' acronym is deceiving. There's no oil sensor anywhere; that's why you have to reset it (otherwise it'd reset itself with new oil:)). It's just an algorithm that basically does a combination of 3 things: Oil life goes from 100% to 0% in 365 days. Oil life...
  12. US Mirrors on Euro Mustang

    Oh man; they ARE ugly. Ha ha. Plus not really any more functional IMO, since they're fat where they're not useful. They should be fatter on the outside, so basically more rectangular, rather than triangular. Now I understand why you want the US ones :). Good luck.
  13. Tick and rpm skipping? Help!

    If a dealer checks your car for that concern, they absolutely have to give you a receipt where it clearly states what is that concern, and what did the tech find (the resolution). And that would stay in Ford's system, therefore documented (for good or bad). If you sell the car privately, I'd...
  14. Rattle at 2500-3000 RPM from cluth/transmission

    You mentioned several noises, and was trying to address them all. Anyway, the noise quoted above is exactly what I thought you were experiencing: The infamous '2K rattle', that basically every Gen3 Coyote has (and I think Gen2s too). So at least you can get that one out of the way, since it's...
  15. Anyone tried these tires

    Car will probably look a bit weird with shorter rear tires than the front ones, but if that's the look you want, up to you then. And that'd also affect your speed by 4% (car will be an extra 4% slower than what speedo says).
  16. 3.73 to 4.88 Gear Swap Problems in 2020 Bullitt

    Nothing changed in the suspension from other high-trim Mustangs AFAIK, so it must still be prone to it.
  17. Help! 2020 Mustang GT tick and rpm needle skip

    Yep, the 'tick' is only when engine is at operating temperature, and at very low rpm (typically below 1K rpm). And yes, oil pressure is quite low at the 600+ rpm idle IMO, which is artificially set by the ECU. Not sure how exactly it's controlled, but I think the device is close to the oil...
  18. Extended Warranty and Track Days

    First of all, any event at a racetrack is absolutely excluded from any warranty and service contract (aka 'extended warranty'). Second of all, if your car has nav, and any airbag and/or seatbelt pretensioner fires up, the ECU stores all data, including location. Any suspicious claim will require...
  19. 2019 GT Oil Consumption

    Not sure the 30 consecutive days apply if they supply you with a loaner. Does anybody know for sure? I'm just curious. Maybe it changes from state to state; who knows.
