How to change your Engine Oil and Filter
Note: Refer to your owner's manual before changing your own oil. These are the basic steps. A little additional info: Some Manufactures recommend filling your new oil filter with oil before installation. Refer to your owners manual. ALWAYS chock the rear wheels if you use vehicle ramps! You may need to top off the oil if you don't prefill the oil filter. Check the engine oil level after running the engine and letting it sit for 15 minutes. BE SAFE!

-4F Diesel Ford Excursion Cold Start
I took this video with my cell phone because I didn't have my camcorder with me, and it was a one of a kind opportunity! If you think this cold start is bad, remember this. It has low batteries. The manual recommends letting the glow plugs cycle for two minutes. I cranked it as soon as the WTS light went off. Finally, this engine has a tuner, so it's not factory defaults. Anyone trying to start brand wars will have their comment removed.
