    Hi peeps after a bit of advice please. I’ve just had a brand new engine and clutch fitted by Ford main dealer after engine failure and im about to do the first oil and filter change at 500 miles after the initial breaking in procedure. Question is should i use an engine flush to remove any swarf/metal filings with it being brand new and first oil change?? I’ve got the mountune magnetic sump plug to fit after draining the oil so will be good for the future it’s just this initial one that’s got me thinking.

    Many thanks Jonathan πŸ˜πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘Œ

    I wouldn’t use a flush personally as the internals shouldn’t have a build up of deposits. I prefer my oil changed whist its hot because its thinner and seems to run quicker and leave it whilst you have a coffee to fully empty.

    drain it hot as Coast says, strain it as it comes out of the sump through an old pair of tights or stockings you dont wear any more and see if there is any debris caught, I bet it comes out with not a grain of debris in it !



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob, thats now been replaced by an RS knob innit.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    As mentioned by a few on here

    Also make sure you use EXACTLY the right specification Castro’s edge when changing the oil, for the RS the oil when manufactured/ blended is filtered to a higher tolerance for impurities

    Ford alsoput a UV marker in as well. Easy to check for correct spec if car. Goes in for a warenty claim, just shine a UV light in to see if it glows.

    Loads of car washing and waxing at the moment

    I’m doing it at 500 miles through personal choice with the ford technician who carried out the work at the dealership (friend of mine) also installing the one step colder iridium plugs and magnetic sump plug at the same time. Can start stretching her legs then πŸ€ͺ😁😎
