Default Re: What did you do to your ranger today thread

I had the oil changed, the tires rotated, and a brake inspection. Luckily, the brake pads are only 1/2 worn, but I feel that the previous shop charged me for "Premium" pads yet only used "standard" ones.

I, too, noticed before about the oil level on the dipstick after having 5 quarts put in (which the 3.0 requires). I liked the older ones better that had a low and a max instead of the cross-hairs. The manual states we don't have to add oil between changes, but with 90% of my driving being highway and a daily commute of 50 miles, I need to add a quart between changes. Depending on my mood, I have the oil changed between 3500 and 5000 miles.

An odd thing I noticed today was that the reminder sticker used suggested my next oil change in 3500 miles vs. the 4000 miles that the previous sticker said, and I didn't change brands or type of oil used. It took the same 5W 20.

How exactly do you seafoam the ranger?
All vehicles are done the same way depending on what the problem may be, or follow the directions, which say to pour 1/3 in the gas tank, 1/3 in the oil, and 1/3 in the vacuum hose. There are numerous posts on this site and online, including videos showing how it is done.

I just filled the tank up with gas, and then added a whole bottle of seafoam to it. After about two tanks of gas taken down to about (E)mpty, replace your fuel filter

----------

That's how I've always done it and it's always helped and never hurt! On the bottle it says 1qt for 8-25 gallons of gas... Full tank for me is 16 gallons(ish?), therefore I use an entire bottle
