Sig + ; Radiator; Zerex Dex-Cool Power Steering; Royal Purple (until I flush it/replace the lines/change to an air to air cooler, then it gets Red Line.) Brakes & clutch; Ate Blue Racing (might try Castrol SRF next if I hit the lottery or something-LOL!) Anywhere there's a zerk fitting; either Red Line or Amsoil series 2000 greases

Hey, would you be able to tell me is Castrol Edge 5W-30 would be safe in my friends ranger ...I believe he has the Duratec 23 I4 2.3L. Because of the recent Advance Auto deal that is out with CE.

Ford calls for 5W20 in that engine, but Castrol Edge 5W30 will be fine.

Hmm... All my cars are the same. Oil: Supertech Trans: Supertech Dexron P/S: Supertech Dexron Coolant: Supertech 50/50 Diffs Supertech... Brakes Supertech DO3 The only thing that gets something special is the bike. It gets M1 15w50 Other then that I buy in bulk and keep my garage well stocked so i don't have to worry about going out when i want to do a oil change.. I do 3K miles between oil changes..
