It's my understanding that most apartment communities have it stipulated in your lease that you're only allowed to change a tire and add fluids. Depending on the complex. My buddy lives in an fancy pantsy complex and they don't even allow you to change a tire! Outrageous!
It could be a housing agency that says no but the law says go for it. The right to fix law makes it so manufacturers have to use regulation bolt sizes but mostly the law is there so manufacturers cannot encrypt their ecu. The right to fix also extends the rights to independent people to work on their own cars.

Hi Lowflyen

Yes Ford does have full synthetic motor oil,
Motorcraft SAE 5W-20 Full Synthetic Motor Oil | Product Details | Pep Boys

Your dealer should have it, Pep Boys, Walmart , autozone among other stores carry it.
It is very good oil and has been sold by Ford for many,many years.

Ronnie

Yeah, back when I lived in an apartment they came at me with that ****. Telling me I couldn't repair my 240sx on the property and they were going to evict me and tow it if I didn't get it outa there.

I was only swapping the motor. There were broken down cars with layers of dust over them all over that complex and they gotta give **** to the one guy that was doing something about it. Lol, anyway.

That sounds about right. If it is not my property the owner can make any rule they want, well within reason. All I did was install the STRUT BAR on my car and I was getting looks as if I was dumping fluids down the sewer drain. California is sad in some areas and I just so happen to live in an extremely pet friendly and environmentally conscious area. I cant even put headers on my vehicle until they are CARB Emissions approved.

There should be a thread alone on why California sucks. I love the state but the environmentalist are enough to make a brotha move.

But just so I dont steer completely away from the topic. My next oil change will be RP full synthetic and I will install that oil catch Ronnie keeps showing off.

Where in Cali do u love bro? I love in LA & I've never heard of that! Then again I don't move in a complex!

GET ON OF THESE FROM STEEDA

Some areas are cool in SoCal but I love by the bay and the only way to keep the ocean blue and the grass green is to prevent oil changes and aftermarket products from being installed on your car.
