Whenever you remove and install a new oil filter you always lose some oil.On this particular model you should expect to lose about half a quart of oil.If you have the capabilities to change the filter then I would definitely recommend it.However, if you can not then it's not going to cause extreme damage to the vehicle, as long as this isn't done all the time.....Hope I could help!!!! rate me accordingly:)

What dose speed limited mode mean on my 2009 Ford Focus

This may sound weird, but do a oil change and filter. These cars are known for sticking lifters and throwing a limp home code. If that don't work clean the throttle body or possibly replace it. I would also add a quart of Lucas oil when doing oil change that will help with sticky lifters greatly..

How long after draining the oil from the car should I wait to run the car?

i am not sure what you are asking. if it is what i think then you are heading for trouble.
NEVER, NEVER, NEVER run a engine without oil in it. you will destroy the motor. drain your oil, change the filter then add the amount of oil your owners manual says to . Then start it and check for leaks.

My greetings to all Iam from Saudi Arabia and bought 2005 ford free star sport with 4.2 L and i do not know how to get the manual and how many for oil for changing oil with filtter . thank you

you should change the oil every 4000 to 5000 km in that hot climat your van should take a little more then 4 liters of oil so buy 6 liters oil filter part # should be on the filter you could take it off the old one if your doing this yourself drain oil put new filter in and add 4 liters of oil wait 5 minutes check oil level on dip stick add half liter at a time and check oil level again wait few minutes in between for oil to drop down in oil pan for proper readings on dip stick.repeat ontil oil level shows in the hatch marks on dip stick DONT OVER FILL. also fill oil filter with oil before instaling the new one to insure that oil will flow trought engine at startup without having to fill oil filter first leaving engine to run without oil until this happends internaly on its own you may have a liter left after your done ,you can use this for top ups inbetween oil changes .you should also check and replace your air filter at this time .

Hi! I have a ford mondeo automatic 2002 model. It looses power every time it changes gears especially from gear 2 to gear 3. The maximum speed that it does now is 40 km/hr but it starts well. Please help

HI,your ford may have gear problem which is common on ford mondeo,first check the gear oil if its reddish then your oil is ok and if its burnt like brown colour then you should change the gear oil as well the gear oil filter.

Hi I have a 2000 vw beetle I had the oil changed and it all leaking twice as soon as they put it in it came out. Can you help me with this problem.

Have it towed back to the shop, it sounds like they installed the filter improperly or left the drain plug loose.

How do you reset service light on a 2009 ford focus 1.6 zetec

If you mean "Check engine / Service engine soon" light, you will need an OBD II Scanner / tool. Other ways that sometimes work is if you unhook that battery, try to start the car with no battery (It would drain any remaining power in the cars systems), wait a hour, hook the battery back up and start the car, it might of forgotten the problem. Chances are, the light would be back on within 3-5 miles of driving it again.
If your saying "Service soon" Like an oil change reminder, look in the cars manual... Most cars you hold "Reset" when the message is displayed / or when your looking at "Oil life" (GM's have "Oil Life", idk if ford does.)
Good Luck!

My oil filter fell off my 2008 Camry SE, two months after an oil change. Ever heard of such a thing?

I just heard a similar issue this week. 2003 Rav4 went more than 500 miles after an oil change. It obviously isn't the person that changed your oil last (even though some people think so). If an oil filter is loose, it won't make it 50 miles, there is too much pressure. The oil will leak out quickly. For the car to go two months is obviously not a loose filter issue. Sounds like a spike in pressure was too much for the filter to hold. Good luck

My 2009 ford focus starts sputtering sometimes while idleing or not moving but on. But doesnt turn off randomly by itself. And it started an afternoon after an oil change about a few months ago. whats...

Tire issue is due to improper camber angle, needs to have a front-end alignment done. The sputtering after an oil change could be due to whoever changed it didn't put the proper grade of oil in. Other possibilities could be bad gas, fuel filter however that doesn't make since seeing how it happened after an oil change. So check to make sure oil level is not overfilled, and the filter is inserted correct.
