I could be wrong here. If so, I hope someone comes along to correct me.

I don't think a somewhat dirty air filter reduces your gas mileage on a modern car. The computer adjusts the air/fuel...

That's fine for your 2008, but the newer Mustangs require orange antifreeze, not gold.

I have found the Valvoline website not up-to-date, and its tech support to be unknowledgeable.

I suggest the undiluted Motorcraft VC-3-B. Pick up some distilled water at the drug store and mix your own. I think distilled water will cost you $2-$3 dollars per gallon. If you use the...

If you have Traction Control System, push the button to turn it off. For some reason, it could think the car has lost traction and is limiting power to the engine. I think you probably have a...

Simon1 is essentially correct. The alternator may not fail immediately, but it will probably be weakened somewhat and fail earlier than it would have had it not been used to charge a battery with...

Before you just keep throwing more parts at the problem, I suggest having a tech inspect and test the electrical system. You might have a bad connection somewhere.

If what you're saying is correct, I'm really behind the times. For 2007, Ford specifically says NOT to use orange antifreeze. The 2007 specifies gold antifreeze. Motorcraft has it, as does Zerex...

I agree that most gasoline additives are snake oil, but I think there are a couple of exceptions.

Sometimes the wrench may be slipping a bit. You can wrap some sandpaper around the filter, grit side towards the filter. Then put the wrench over the sandpaper.

I think you need a minimum number of posts before the edit button appears, but I don't know what that minimum number is.

Edit: Or maybe a Camaro ate the button.

Nuke, I'm not following you as to a chronic water leak causing the PCM to fail. The PCM is located under the hood, next to the fuse/relay box. Maybe you were thinking SJB.

I think the math got messed up along the way.

Let's say you start out with 12 mm. The pads should be replaced when you get to 3 mm. So you have 9 mm of usable pad.

If you have a total of 5...

I don't have specific information for your car. If someone could post that, go for it. I would replace the pads at 3 mm. The original thickness was probably about 13 mm or maybe a bit less.
