hi all,

in reviewing the scds recalls, ford is pushing the use of their "motorcraft electrical grease II xg-15-a. one 3 oz tube will service 10 recalls." google has very little results on this, but i find the price is ~$117! 

last time i did connector work (think it was trans) it spec'd xg-12. can someone enlighten me as to the differences and why it's so expensive?

My read on this is the new CEO of Ford isn't happy with Wild Turkey Bourbon on a SouthWest cheap seat flight. He wants something better, served to him on a corporate jet.


I have been using the plain old dielectric grease since it came out. A little trick I learned was to slightly scratch the male ends of the terminals before insertion, as well as a slight bend / tweak. To insure a tight and clean contact.

No longer working at dealerships. Government employee. Now i get paid to fix Fords.
