Here are pics of the proper dip stick and comparison to the one that was in there. Last pic shows a proper (though slightly messy) reading with the right amount of oil. Whew, glad that mess is over. ...

The dealership called saying my new $12 correct dip stick has arrived. I'll pick it up on the way home from work and post up some pictures.

Just got off the phone with the dealership, looks like they are retarded. They mistakenly put a dip stick in from a 3L Ford Ranger. The number SHOULD be BR3Z-6750-AA and instead it is YL5E-6750-AA.

Update: I said F*** the dip stick and just put in the other 5 quarts (more like 4.75 to be safe) and took it out for a test drive last night. Runs strong, fine, no noises or smoke. Oil way the heck...

Got it with 39.2k miles, the window sticker says change the oil at 42.2k miles. Yes all knowing one, they couldn't possibly have done that.

Also, while I didn't measure how much came out I would...

Also if you could, if you have a 2011 GT (assuming 2012-14 dip sticks are the same) or newer please measure the length of the dip stick. Mine is coming in at 21.5" and looking at other pics it looks...

2011 Mustang GT, first oil change since purchase. 3 QT = Max on dipstick? Pics.

Hey everyone. A few months back I got a 2011 Mustang GT. My 3K miles is up so it's time to do an oil change per Ford. Now, I drain the old oil, change filter, yadda yadda. This isn't my first oil...

I definitely agree. Couldn't imagine my GT sounding like a ricer. Not that a Ferrari sounds bad, I just think a lot of people prefer the rumble of a big V8. Maybe that is more of an American only...

I've run countless hours of testing using Cartest2000 (vehicle simulator). One thing I've found is that the 05-10 Mustang GT's work best with 4.10 rear gears (best acceleration and time to speed)....

Very strange that it does that. I've had two 06's and now this 11 and none have done that. I'm wondering if your throttle body may be dirty or something else might be going on because that definitely...

Yep, that is the first thing my wife and I said when we saw it. Almost at the same time we saw it unveiled on YouTube, "it's a Fusion!".

I have a 2011 GT but like the 2013-2014 styling best. One...

Looks good to me. O2 sensors are suppose to bounce around between 0.2v and 0.8 or 0.9v or so, average being close to half a volt. Sounds like you're good on the tune.

I remember when I put on the Steeda CAI and Bamatunes 93P tune, people weren't kidding when they said it will really wake up the car. I have this odd feeling you won't be disappointed. :)

The way I do it w/o a wideband is look at the logged STFT doing a WOT run. Bama said my stoich is 14.36:1 (I believe, or close) instead of 14.7 (I guess due to ethanol?) and my AFR should be around...
