No, none whatsoever. Just drain the oil, oil the filter gasket, and install a new quality filter such as Motorcraft, Bosch, or Purolator. Pour in the correct amount of the correct weight oil and you are done.

Why does my 98 ford contour only drive in reverse

I'm assuming you have an automatic transmission. It sounds like there is an internal fault in the transmission itself. You'll have to take out the trans and take it to a shop to have it repaired, unless you're experienced on this kind of work and have the special tools and equipment required.

Lifters making noise how do you adjust them?

The engine/oil pump may be worn enough that the oil pressure is too low at idle. Suggest getting the system pressure read at your favorite service shop and get an estimate of required repairs. Have you been getting regular oil changes?

on each side of the radio, there are two holes.
a special two pronged (ford radio removal) tool slides into the two holes on each side of the radio.once inserted, the holding mechanism is released, and the radio slides out.
If you cannot puchase the keys locally, allen wrenches of the proper diameter will work.
