i am do have a book that i purchased and i was highly disapointed to
see that it did not explain at all about the oil pressure relief valve.
I am not a novice car mechanic and i do know what an oil relief valve
IS, i just was not sure if the mustang even had one since i could not
find it in the book... so my question is if anyone has ever heard of
the problem i described above? any advice????
