Would you consider adding some more Fluid specifics under the Specifications webpage?

For example, I own several cars and before I do an oil change I always have to pull out the manual to see what viscosity the manufacturer recommends. The amount of oil necessary is listed on the webpage but it would be nice to have 5W-20W there also. The same could be mentioned for which Motorcraft oil filter is needed. Likewise, it would be nice to know what type of transmisison fluid or fuel filter is recomended, with the Ford part number.

These are the numbers for my 2005 Freestyle. I don't know if they have or will change for the 2006/2007 model year.

Oil - 5W - 20W Premium Synthetic Blend
CVT - Motorcraft CVT Tyoe Transmisison Fluid
Oil Filter - FL 820 S
Brake Fluid - DOT 3
Fuel Filter - FG 1060
Air Filter - FA 1771
Battery - 36R

I think being able to IM or chat with other members would be a nice addition.

i think minimizing the number of pages to the posts would be helpful.

too easy, just start a thread and post away.

I agree on the chat forums too in addition to a official section for a "For Sale" section. We may be able to sell FS stuff to each other easier than elsewhere.

Can we get a photo gallery so we can see members vehicles, modifications, etc? I see there are a few photos posted by members in their posts, but a gallery page would be easier to access.

Should we think about trying to attract Ford Five Hundred owners at all? They suffer from many of the same problems we do. It might be good to have a collection of info on the Five Hundred too.

i would like to see more of a organization of the site. like DIY's need to have there own section in every part of the forums. like have a engine thread have a sub-thread for DIY's for engine work. and to have everybody that would like to submit a DIY being engine for interior or whatever they need to send the DIY to a moderator for review then the mod would post up said DIY. that way people can not post up random unless info or question in the DIY section. keeps it nice and clean. just got to www.club3g.com and see how its done very well designed

I second Countryrunners suggestion. I love the DIY section, but if it could be broken down even more, the search pulls up every mention of subjects I want to research. I am preparing myself for a CVT fluid change. OH.. something else.. A best practices type section.. A mod and change that has made a real difference for the positive maybe?
