ACTION: Replace the left hand camshaft tensioner with a revised Tensioner Kit. Refer to the Instruction Sheet within the Tensioner Kit for service procedure details.

the 2000 ford Mustang has a factory defect. there is a missing Baffle in the Valve cover which is allowing oil to be sucked in to the combustion chamber through the PCV valve. the Fix is to install a filter or to install the new valve covers you will need to buy through your local ford dealer.
