You should be fine. Try as you might, you can't drain every last drop. Mine took just under 3 quarts.

Did you try using a GPS that displays your speed to compare it to your speedometer?

For me, it was easy. My driveway is on an incline so I put the front wheels on ramps making the car level. I removed the upper and lower plugs with a 3/8" socket to drain it, replaced the lower...

I'm not against Royal Purple. My point was that you were talking about manual transmission fluid when the T-5 calls for automatic transmission fluid. If you are taking advise from a GT forum, bear...

The fluid you want is ATF (yes...automatic fluid in a manual transmission). Check your owners manual of Google TSB 06-26-1 for the specs. I believe Mercon V is what is called for now (but don't...

My first guess is a clogged fuel filter, an easy and cheap fix if you haven't done it previously. The symptoms of a clogged filter is a car that will run for a while, then bog down and die. After...

With or without MyColor, all of the gauges should be the same. If it is only your speedometer that is an ugly green, as Nuke said, someone replaced a burned out bulb with the wrong one.

I suspect you're more concerned about the weight than the brand. 5W-40 is heavier than what is recommended. I believe the recommended weight is 5W-20. Will it hurt it? Probably not, but that's a...

When they go, they go. It can happen any time and it will. They don't give you advance warning. Your clue was a low reservoir. For others it's a wet engine, the smell of evaporating coolant or...

Eventually, they will all leak. I have 90,000 on my car with the original, but I have a new unit in the trunk for when it does fail.

Kudos to AMWill for helping a member install a product American Muscle sells, but was purchased elsewhere. Customer service is important, and this is why I always look to AM first for parts.

You'll do fine. Google 2006 Mustang thermostat housing, select videos and you'll find a number of them that will walk you through it.

Now's probably a good time for a new thermostat if you...

Make sure it's coming from where you suspect it is. Plastic thermostat housings are a well documented source of failure in the S197's.

Unless you're really strapped for cash, you're not saving that much by doing only one. A set can be had off of eBay (and elsewhere) for $40-60 with new O rings. You'll already have it apart and the...

If the problem is a coolant leak, the first thing to check is the plastic thermostat housing. Cracked housings are a chronic problem with the S197's.

If I'm not mistaken, the SJB is attached with only a single bolt at the bottom. If you Google "Mustang Smart Junction Box" there are plenty of images. Inside the box is a circuit board.

Here is the TSB on the problem. It's quite common. Pulling the grommets and cabin air filter to clean out the debris periodically is your best bet at preventive maintenance.

You shouldn't need to remove the wiper arms to access the cabin air filter.

Like Nuke says, this sounds like a water issue with the SJB. Here's the TSB on how to deal with it:
