It's rewarding to do work on your own Mustang and Oil Changes are one of the easiest things you can do. I hope my comprehensive DIY instructions can give you the confidence needed to do your own oil change.

I suggest watching this video at least once before you start start changing your oil.

Parts required:

(6) quarts - 5W-20 Synthetic Oil (Ford recommends their Motorcraft synthetic blend, but Royal Purple fully synthetic works even better)
(1) - Ford Motorcraft Oil Filter (Part #FL-500S)

Tools needed:

Ramps or Jack/Jackstands & Chock Block
1/4" & 3/8" ratchet
8mm & 15mm socket
Torque wrench (19 ft lbs)
SCOTT Shop Towels
Oil drain pan w/ 6qt minimum capacity
Oil Filter Wrench
Funnel
Safety Glasses
Latex/Nitrile Gloves






These are the Ramps I have - www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000AMMN9O/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=e0d8c-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000AMMN9O

SCOTT Shop Towels can be found at Costco for a reasonable price.

And make sure you hit up www.blackstone-labs.com/ if would like to have your oil professionally tested. You can get a Free Test Kit here - www.blackstone-labs.com/free-test-kits.php (Highly Recommended - they've done countless tests for me over the years)

Here's my video for resetting the oil service interval - Coming Soon!

      Dungeon Motorsport What brand are those ramps? I've tried to use other models that my friends own, but the Mustang's front bumper guard always hits the ramps and won't let me take the car all the way up.

      Those ramps are currently unavailable on Amazon. They recommend purchasing this version (see below) as the company's newest model. Would you recommend purchasing this version, or would you suggest purchasing another brand?

      See logic kicks in for me when you were removing the filter first I was like "What...but...oil in engine...filter near bottom....bad..." But I guess the line that leads to the filter has a designed "divet" to prevent stagnant oil in the engine from flowing out on it's own.

      You may want to consider replacing the oil pan bolt with a quick-release drain valve which I did, it makes the whole oil changing process so much easier you'll smack yourself for not doing it earlier. I don't have to worry about draining the oil back into containers and cleaning the oil mess. Sure I don't mind it but if it can be done easier I am all for it. And it beats going to the dealer and waiting and cleaning all their mess when they're done. You also know exactly how many quarts are going in and what weight oil so it is done right. Who knows what a Ford tech might screw up. So of course do put the car on ramps, I have 2 plastic containers for the oil, so I open valve, drain the oil in 1st container, then close valve, and drain the rest into the second container and take it for recycling. Sorry, the oil filter will be have to be done the same way but that's not a problem.

      Thanks for the help in the vid. It looks like the spark plugs are hard to get to. Can you do a spark plug change walk through? It'd be much appreciated.

      Good Video, just got a 2014 for my Daughter. Does the plastic Belly Pan need to be shifted down to unscrew the oil plug as well, or is the Plug to the side where the pan does not need to be removed ??. I notice that you can just grab and unscrew the filter from the Top without needing to go from under ??...Thanks,

      good vid. A quick tip with the filter. Just use a large ziploc bag, or a grocery bag if you want...and put it around the filter before you remove it..most the oil drops into the bag, with the old filter..much cleaner!..a friend told me about it
