Default oil change thread suggestion

hey guys its that time where i need to do my first oil change, I was looking at the how too section and did not find an oil change section (perhaps i missed it) but it would be sweet for some of us if there was a how to oil change for every engine out there (2.3, 2.5, 2.9, 3.0, 4.0l, etc) just so we have a better idea of what we are doing.

Not much to discuss in a thread, and the process is the same for every engine. Drain, replace filter, refill.

I would talk to Mike!!! Tensilver is his SN. He did his first oil change not too long ago. He has a 2010 2.5. Maybe get intouch with him.

i just thought it would help those that never did an oil change in their lives or never did it on a ranger. Some vehicles can be troublesome to remove the oil filter and might nbeed special tips to remove it, things like that. So i assume its simple enough with no surprises?

A whole section dedicated to oil changes isn't really needed. We have multiple threads about them and two how-tos. all we lack is a 2.5 How-To, and a 2.3 How-to. But like FireRanger said, the entire process is the same across the board:

http://www.fordrangerforum.com/how-s...oil-3-0-a.html

http://www.fordrangerforum.com/how-s...rhead-cam.html

if anyone has a 2.3 or 2.5 that wants to make a how-to for those engines, please feel free
