The first time I had a problem it started when the battery died so I bump started my van.... soon after this the radiator fan stayed on when the engine was off and was in over drive (noisy) never done this before. Soon after this I noticed oil pouring down the head lights. I am assuming pressure built up somehow and it fired out of where the dip stick is onto the bonnet and down the lights. the garage couldn’t find any faults and cleaned it up. a few months on the battery has died and I bumped it off again. the fan has gone wild again... the oil hasn’t popped again but I think it may be next. any ideas of what is going on? I am not mechanically minded whatsoever so any help would be appreciated
Every car forum needs to have a lengthy topic, which goes on forever, and often strays off topic. Can we trust the onboard oil change light? Is the algorithm sophisticated enough to truly know if I'm a regular driver, or if I am a severe duty driver? Who does their own oil change? What do you use? Who is allowing the dealer to do it? Anyone going to a "lube shop" like Oil Can Henry's, Jiffy Lube, Pep Boys, Oil Changers? Who is using only Motorcraft? Anyone like "boutique oil", K&N filters, and fancy magnets? Let's hear it all.
I give up! How the heck do you get the oil filter off the 1.6L Ecoboost!? While I can get a filter wrench around the filter, there is no direction you can point the handle to apply any sort of torque to the damn thing. Time to go search for different kinds of filter wrenches...
