How many qts in your pan??
#1

This is a poll to see if anybody has the right amount of oil.Ford has a bulitin that 2.3 turbo cars have the wrong dipstick highth.There should only be 5 qts in the pan.To corect this ,at your next oil change put 5 qts in start car turn off check the level.99%of the time its about a qt low.Mesure this distance,then cut it off the tube.Now the level is corect.

Out of all the 2.3's I've owned, I never had a problem until my latest 88 XR. It shows a quart low. :dunno: Thanks for the info

I have a Snap-On scaner that has books to show some builltens.One of them is for the oil level on the 2.3 turbo motors.It says that the tube is to long,before i found out this i was useing 6 qts.I was just thinking of this the other day,so i had to share.Like i said it is only for the 2.3 turbos.Tomarrow i'll try to get all the codes + what they mean & how to test 4 that code. :cheers:

Funny story now I suppose. When I bought my black merk. I drove it around for a week after getting it. Well one day it started puking black smoke out the tailpipe. Well I later came to find out it had 13qts of oil in it! Which caused the pcv valve to shoot shit and suck up the oil into the intake. :crazy:
