Eaton considers the super charger on our Cobras to be a sealed system and needs no maintenance.

Show me some information that says I am wrong.:D Not just that my brother inlaw friend's friend said crap.:thumbsup:

The coolant in the intercooler needs changing like the coolant in the rest of the car.

Our board is here to give accurate information...get the pictures and documentation for your statements and then you would have made your point.

Most factory manuals will give you a mileage when to change what fluids, does it say it in the owner's manual? What do you base your statement on? That would be more helpful to others lurking and using our board! Thanks :thumbsup:

OK keep telling your self that:thumbsup: Just don't tell anyone else:DAre you guys serious or what? I have replaced my storage tank for the Vortec, and only water and water wetter. Then I emptied it and used antifreeze. I don't think we should tell people wrong things. Like the time people always told me that our 03 cobras had 195 degree thermostats, when recently I went to change mine and found a 180 degree installed. I bought my car new from the factory. I questioned two dealers and they both say that the original on the 03 is 180 degree. Therefore lost allot of fluid for nothing, and still burping the system.

So if our Eaton's need oil, speak up! Mine is only running antifreeze! :doubt: Where's Jimmy when you need him!

Here's a couple pointers that will help you guys out over this debate. ;)
The fill and drain plug is right in the front of the blower next to the snout. The oil in the blower snout does not need to be changed until like a 100,000 miles. But for insurance if you are running higher then stock boost I would change it once a year. For a 20 minute job I think it is worth it IMHO.

1. Put some rags underneath the plug and slowly loosen the drain plug. Be prepared for the oil to spill out onto the rags you set below.

2. Once the oil has stopped make yourself a device to suck the rest of the oil out of the blower. I used a turkey baster and about 8-10 inches of tubing making sure the tubing was tie strapped so it would not come off the snout of the baster. I also read someone finding a decent size syringe and put about 8-10 inches tubing on it.

3. Insert the tubing inside the drain whole and suck out the rest of the oil. You should get about 2 bottles worth of oil which should be about 8 ounces.

4. Now putting the oil back in is a bit tricky. You need 2 bottles which are 4oz's each. You can get it from any ford dealer. The first bottle should be no problem, but the second you will have to get ready with the plug in one had the oil in the other. Squirt the second bottle in and plug as fast as possible because the oil will want to spill out just like when you first drained it. I had mine car up on ramps so it was a little easier.

5. That's it.

stiegmeir in another post states that mobil1 10w30 works fine

I also change my M6's fluid yearly. Do I have to? No. But coming off like any of you should do the same & then cop an attitude if y'all disagree :thumbsup: is pretty rich. It is as beerkat stated - you do not have to service the Eaton although as Jason suggested, it's not a bad idea.

Hey! Thanks for the information. I will change this once a year! About the same time I change my oil! Yes, I only change my oil once a year! I use royal Purpile, (Spell Check Please). I do not drive my car much, (Or at all).
Thank's, I was concerned that we were talking about the resivoir! :thumbsup:
