Also check the oil pressure while the cars is running to see if it’s in the safe range and that the pressure is okay. 1aauto October 30, 2012 Thanks for checking us out. We currently do not sell oil filters. You could find one at your local parts store. Purolator, WIX or Motorcraft are all very good filters to use. Hope this helps you out. Have a great day. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393 Adam Fuller October 30, 2012 ” If they’re left on the engine for to long the paper element inside may break down and end up in the motor.”I just read this and I’m scared. I think this may have happened! I had a starter go on the car not long ago and after tapping on the starter… and oil filter (whoops) heard a loud thump like something being cleared through a vacuum and the car started again. Now (a few months later) I have an oil light, ticking sound and dry sounding engine! I greatly value your opinion. Please Help!! Adam Fuller October 30, 2012 Great Tutorial!I jumped over to A1auto.com after watching to order a new oil filter. I was unable to locate one for my 99 Ford Taurus though. Please advise! Silizo October 30, 2012 Great video. Thank you, sir. Nathan Nguyen October 30, 2012 I wanted to learn to do this, great video. 1aauto October 30, 2012 It should be similar, if it isn’t the same process. Jackie Chan October 30, 2012 murcuery sable same way 1aauto October 30, 2012 As long as you’re careful, it’s no to bad. FunkyShaf October 30, 2012 Great video, I have a 2000 Mercury Sable with this same engine, and I’ve changed it’s oil many times. I always have trouble with that stupid oil filter. I use a plastic bag to cover the starter and the exhaust which are both right underneath the filter. And you must wait until the engine is cool, otherwise you’ll burn the skin off your arm. Stupid design by Ford. 1aauto October 30, 2012 If they’re left on the engine for to long the paper element inside may break down and end up in the motor. sunlukdong October 30, 2012 What happens if u dnt change the oil filter when doing an oil change? IronMaidenDoD October 30, 2012 that’s awesome you’re doing this. Thank you, and im more likely to purchase items or parts from you in the future for your honesty. 1aauto October 30, 2012 It doesn’t really matter. The oil is used to help keep the new gasket on the filter from sticking to the block the next time you remove it. Either way is fine. dbflyboy917 October 30, 2012 I’ve seen videos done with people using old oil on the oil filter gasket, and with new oil on the gasket. Which method do you recommend, and why? Thank you! 1aauto October 30, 2012 Yeah that is what I had in mind. Nick Myers October 30, 2012 That’s not a bad idea. I’m guessing something like cling-wrap will do? Oh yes, I will definitely remove before startup…don’t need additional smells entering the vehicle. Thanks. 1aauto October 30, 2012 Change your oil when engine is cold and put some plastic wrap over the exhaust. Be sure to remove it afterward. Nick Myers October 30, 2012 Wow, it didn’t even leak all over the exhaust? I have a 2000 DOHC model Taurus. Dumb oil filter location, leaks down all over the exhaust and subframe on removal at a 45 degree angle. Wish I knew how to deal with that so I don’t have a smokey car on startup. Jeremyam1985 October 30, 2012 Thanks. I appreciate your videos, I just purchased a 1993 Ford Taurus. I’m Pretty much done with a tune-up after watching your videos, a few other peoples, and working on it myself. bileone123 October 30, 2012 * Missed step #2 – You should clean the drain plug and inspect the plug washer to be sure it has life, otherwise, the plug could come loose and cause a leak, you also do not want dirt or grime to enter into the oil pan.
