Hi Scotty, I have a 2015 Mustang Ecoboost with 60k miles. Have changed the oil every 5k. No catch can installed. Installing one now. Should I be concerned with any damage to the engine for the time it has been without a catch can? If so anything I can/should do to clean it to help it last longer? Thanks.

Transmission slips often in the morning when it’s cool out when I pull out of my driveway about 50-100 yards away from my driveway it slips once
Tranny fluid is full (but not overfilled)
(I often pull a 4x8 utility trailer every couple weeks ,I never overload it, lite loads only)
Should I be concerned about the tranny slip?

Micheal-Hanna, Scotty would say to try changing the transmission fluid and PRAY it’s just that. If not, you will either need to hire a professional mechanic for 1,000s of dollars or you might have to get another car.
