You asked ---so I'll answer

Use the oil designed for your engine

Do "NOT" add anything to it.

The tolerances in these newer engines are designed for the oil Ford say's to use. When you start adding crap to your oil you will be changing the viscisity as well as the chemical compounds.
Do "NOT" add crap to your motor oil
It is not needed and will do more harm then good.
Buy the oil with this seal on the bottle,


Weather you use semi-synthetic or Full synthetic just be sure to use the proper viscosity such as 5W-20 or whatever your engine calls for from the factory.

This is not the 60's or 70's and the newer engines are much different (BETTER MADE) now then back in the good old days.

Use good quality gas and the proper motor oil and your engine will go at least 300,000 miles without a lubrication problem.

If you really want to do something good for your engine. Buy an oil separator. Just don't be putting crap in your oil or gas.

Well reason I was asking is I have been using this with mobile one 5w 20 for the last 4 oil changes. I change at 5000 religiously and the oil looks brand new. Was just wondering what it does.

You don't need it or want it.

You are already using EXCELLENT motor oil. Mobil-1 is one of the best you can use. Changing it at 5,000 miles is OK but if your using Full Synthetic you can really go 7,500 or 10,000 between changes.

What oil filter are you using? A "FRAM" is the absolute worst out there. Motorcraft, Purolater, Delco, STP, are all good. I personally like the Ford Motorcraft.

Do you already have an oil separator? If not, you should look into getting one. I have the JLT from American Muscle and it is nice because it comes ready to just plug into you PCV line. It has genuine Ford hoses and connectors already installed. Plugs in in less the thirty seconds. Easy to empty every two thousand miles.

I just looked at American Muscle and

It say's the JLT will fit 2005 up. You will probably have to call them to see if it also will fit a 2004 GT.
Here is a link to AM
JLT Satin Mustang Oil Separator JLTOSD-GT05-C (05-10 GT) - Free Shipping

They do have others that will fit your 2004GT .

Lucas Oil = Snake Oil. Not needed, engine was not designed for it, complete and total waste of money.

On older, used and abused engines, I might consider certain oil additives, but not on a newer engine with under 150K or less.

I have a 2000 Ford Ranger that is my work horse. It has 215K, and recently developed a rear main seal leak. I was not in any kind of mood to pull off the drive shafts (its a 4x4), pull off the transfer case, the transmission, and torque converter just to replace a lousy 10 buck rear main seal. I bought som of the bars leak rerar main seal and conditioner, poured it in, and after 50 miles the rear seal no longer leaks.

before you go off on me, this stuff is only oil; there's no pellets like their radiator/head stop leak. It's all fluid that contains conditioners intended to soften hardened seals.

A lot of the old guys (like myself) that I've seen at car shows that have the old 60's and 70's cars swore by it. I tried it, and it worked.

There are only a few additives I've heard work. When I went to smog my car and it smoked a tiny bit the guy recommended Marvel Mystery oil, so I read up on it on forums and see a lot of people like it. So I tried it because it's supposed to soften up the seals, for me it's the valve stem seals..... Well i can't tell right now if it's working or not since I can't see behind my car, but after I put more miles on it I'll see.
