general info?

I recently purchased a 1994 Mustang with the 3.8. The previuos owner could not figure out why it kept overheating so he sold it to me for $250. I had the heads milled and now it runs great. Anyways it did not have the owners manual and i need some general info on it. What are the oil and fluid capacities and what oil was recommended from the factory, 5w30 or 10w30?
Any help would be appreciated?

Re: general info?

3.8 takes 5 qts of oil
Fuel tank is 15.4 gallons
Rear diff 7.5 takes 3.25 pts.
Cooling system 11.8 qts.
Try a junk yard or eBay for a used manual.
Are you located in a warm or cold climate? This will change your oil viscosity. 0 to 100 degrees calls for 10w-30 0 to -20 calls for 5w-30

change that fuel filter if you have not (they need to be changed every 15k miles... not 100k
