03 Cobra Fluid Suggestions

I plan on changing all the fluids I can this weekend on the Cobra I just bought. What fluids do y'all suggest I use?

Re: 03 Cobra Fluid Suggestions

amsoil or royal purple is what I would look into~

I am currently using all OEM minus engine which is Mobile 1~

i recommend changing all fluids as you said with fuel filter, maf cleaning, air filter clean/check etc. I would also recommend a oil catch can of some sort~ JLT has a simple one.

Re: 03 Cobra Fluid Suggestions

If you are doing a radiator flush, check to see which kind you have in the car now. If it is green, don't get the yellow stuff and vice versa. Same holds true for the intercooler...the green and yellow can't be mixed. This is true of the FORD green and Yellow. I know ford says not to use universal stuff...but that could be a sales thing trying to drive up sales of coolant.

I am about to do a coolant flush this weekend. I Bought 2 gallons of coolant from ford...it's not pre-mixed and was $13 bucks a gallon thru a buddy on here.

I have converted all of my vehicles to green. Glycol based. It's less prone to react with certain metals. Just gotta make sure all the other stuff is flushed out good.

i got rid of the green and went back with the gold. green gunks up if not changes at a regular schedule. i like the 5 year 100,000 mile schedule.
