So we bought our first Thunderbird! Test drove it, loved it, car seemed to be mechanically sound. Well less than an hour into owning it the car decided it doesn’t want to...
When we upgraded our PCV system, we touched upon this subject, and the features/benefits of positive oil control, pressure differentials, inductance, reluctance, Bernoulli, Charles and Boyle, and fluid dynamics/kinetics.
