Oil change for V-8, S197-3V engines 2005-2009

A simple but a must do for any engine. For any questions please PM me. I use 5/20 weight oil because that is what my car calls for and I switch to Mobil 1 full synthetic but use what you like or check your manual. Also for interval change my oil every 3000 miles, I know it is overkill for full synthetic but its a cheap insurance for me ( you can go longer but it is up to each individual). Keep all receipts for parts, oil, oil filter for any warranty issue.

6Quarts of oil
New oil filter (can get at any Ford dealer or auto shop)
Basic hand tools
Oil catcher bin
Jack/car ramps or lift
Jack stands

1. Raise the car on either side with Jack drive on ramps or have car on lift. Place jack stand under car for safety.
Some pics provided by a team Shelby member, Grabber, used with his permission.

2.Open hood, open the oil cap cover slightly to let it vent when oil pan bolt is off to increase flow of drainage.

3.Crawl under the car and locate the oil pan. Bring along your tools to loosen up the oil pan bolt, bring your oil catcher, gloves,rag.

4.Loosen up the oil pan bolt. Place oil bin/catcher under the pan to catch the oil.

5.Let the oil drain.

6.Once the oil is drained, place the bolt back. Please do not overthread the bolt, you may strip the threading.

7.Locate the oil filter- it is towards the front of car near front bumper.

8. Take the oil filter off with the special oil filter tool( toll can be purchased at any tool shop) and let it drain again.

9. Put new oil filter on (leave it empty), note to place a small amount of oil on the rubber gasket of new oil filter and hand tightened the new filter, do not over tightened the oil filter.

10.Put six quarts of oil in the engine (six quarts is for the V-8, V-6 check manual for required amount.)

Please dispose used oil and filter at any major chain auto shop, it is free.

That's it!!! Start car to see if all is well and no leakage.
