Successful oil change. Motorcraft blend, and filter. $23 at Walmart. Took about an hour. Half of that was to cool the car down, it is like 95 here.

I don't get that either, you're supposed to change the oil when it's hot

Oh the oil was still up to temp. Just didn't want to burn myself on the hot exhaust after driving it 10 miles.

What exhaust is there to burn yourself on? I change mine when I know I will have driven the car for S6 last an hour. Immediately get it on jacks and pull the plug.

To each there own though.

It shouldn't matter all that much. As long as you're changing it is the big thing.

Oil debates are endless and dumb...

Finally got a seat put in my mk2..some love it some hate it. I love it, it's comfy, looks good and holds me in place. The stock mk2 seats are terrible the bolstering department. Now I need one for the passenger..
