    What is the worst car you ever owned?

    Anyone who had those loved them despite there problems. A friend of mine has his grandma's 96 T&C and never had an issue until recently. After 179k, the original transmission finally went out. We think it might be it's solinoid pack.

    It's a rather simple car. Of I can do it in a 91 Taurus then I can do this car. Trick is not breaking the brittle plastic.

    Oil change was successful. Oil was pitch black but not sludgy or chunky. Filter looks good. Was very easy to cut open. Looks like a purolator. Was going to use 10w30 Castrol magnetec but with the age of the seals and length it went without oil change I settled for valvoline 10w40 conventional...

    So I picked up this old 1983 Ford LTD 3.8L and man said it hadn't run in four years but the oil filter is very old. Motorcraft is in raised letters. Might cut it open. Any suggestions on what oil to use? Was going to use Castrol fs magnetic 10w30. Oil pan is very clean and dry.

    2018 Ford 3.5L Cyclone v-6 30k miles; blend of RGT and QSFS 5w-20 5k miles

    But shouldn't I notice it running rich or something? Car runs fine and mpg is good. Almost 30mpg which is great for this car. On e10 fuel it got about 24. Even though nonE cost more I feel that extra distance makes up for it or at least breaks even.

    2018 Ford 3.5L Cyclone v-6 30k miles; blend of RGT and QSFS 5w-20 5k miles

    Reason I go to 5k is because my TBN suggested I stay thar way, however this last sample had plenty of life left.
