question about genuine ford parts
 
since this mustang i have is only 30k miles and so far everything is 100% FORD GENUINE besides the short antenna and sequential tail lights, i want to keep it genuine unless a known faulty part fails. Also I will only take it to the dealer for service.

However, some guy suckered me into buying Preston wiper fluid for sub zero weather and I got rid of all my genuine fluid :( does anyone know what the ford genuine wiper fluid is called?

Also it seems like my Motocraft battery is still stock, but its been running and working godly, (even though this winter i drove it) so if it ever needs replacing i will be sure to get another motorcraft battery.

otherwise...can't really think of anything else for now....on my last mustang I would get the autozone duralast parts but it was near 200k miles and i diddnt have a job and I bought the car used for like 3k, and it was a 98 v6, however it served me extremely well until i traded it in for this car. the interior and exterior were in perfect condition and everyone i showed wouldn't believe it had 180k miles.

Be sure to wear your Motorcraft jeans and Motorcraft shoes when you sit on your Motorcraft seat and step on your Motorcraft carpet. What have you been doing for fuel? I don't recall ever seeing Motorcraft gas pumps.


Really?

BP, says on my gas tank they recommend BP for fuel, but what about wiper fluid?

well, some parts are "better" than genuine stock. but, "genuine stock" parts are made in a fasion that they will last an extremely long time. as far as wiper fluid goes, call up a ford dealer and ask what they use. more often than not, genuine ford parts go by the name "Motorcraft" altho ford has been known to use outside fluids as stock. like for my 14 GT, the oil is Mobile 1 synthetic blend. not motorcraft.

As far as the battery goes, the batteries made by ford are probably going to be pricy. and not give you as good of performance as, say, an Optima battery. Check out optima's website for applications you would feel most comfortable with. cold weather, warm weather, crazy car stereo, they make only batteries and specialize in it. i'd swear by Optima. but again, keeping it all genuine and stock, its a good feeling knowing your value is justified by piece of mind.

I'm sure Ford uses whatever they can get the cheapest for wiper fluid. I'm pretty sure you won't void your warranty if you buy the wiper fluid at WalMart.

I'll let you know if I find Motorcraft air to top off your tires...

I only use motorcraft air-fresheners in my '13 Ford Motorcraftstang.

I have never used anything but genuine Ford blinker fluid. My blinkers have never had a problem.
