Sorry, this is my biggest pet peeve (followed closely by spelling "brake" as "break"). First, you take up other people's time to answer a question that you could have easily found yourself. Second - it would take all of 3 or 4 minutes to look this up in the OM rather than waiting hours or days for someone to answer it.
And since the OMs are now online ( https://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenance/owners_manuals/default.asp ) you can't use the "I was at work and the car was at home" excuse.

And to think I just had my time wasted reading this? Good to see OM are online though. And we will all try to be perfect from now on and use our spell check. Thanks for reprimanding us lesser humans.

Has nothing to do with spelling. Everyone makes typos. Using it once might be a typo - doing it 2 or 3 times in one post isn't. Is it asking too much to expect adults to know as much as a 12 year old in middle school?

That OM site only goes back to '96. Have any links for earlier models, such as a '95 GT? Thanks.

I'm not the person who originally posted the question. Please don't flame me.
This is supposed to be a fun forum for Mustang owners..hey, they are FUN cars!
BTW, I read MY owner's manual when I got my Mustang but I still have questions and am happy to answer questions for anyone else who has them. JUST ASK.

Sorry, Mary - that wasn't directed at you or anyone else in particular - I should not have used the word "you". It was just a general comment.
I also don't think it's asking too much for people to RTM before asking a question.

About 2 months ago i drove about an hour and a half from Michigan to Ohio and picked up a 03 GT CONV premium. It had only 12000 miles, this baby was beautiful, and it was certified. I walked in with cash in my hand, added the extended warranty, and gap insurance and walked out paying 18000.

That's the number of days left before I am able to head to Wyoming to pick up my '95GT. First thing I'll do is "read the Owner Manual" lol, after which I'm sure there will still be questions. Once I'm up there first thing will be to change all fluids for my own peace of mind. Considering going right to synthetic on the oil since there are only 14+K miles on the car. I changed over to synthetic on my 351W when it had 120K and started a seal leak. Had never leaked a drop prior to using the synthetic. I have never heard of that occuring but given the viscosity and structure of the synthetic several of us agree that it might be possible to get past an old seal using the syn. I switched back to 5w-30 and the leak slowed to almost no leak at all. Remember, it never leaked at all previously.
I'm interested in hearing any other's thoughts on this occurance.

That's common for a high mileage engine - especially older ones that had more tolerance. If the new 95 only has 14K miles it should be ok with synthetic.
