    White 94... number two :)

    just picked up a 94 auto sc tonight... guy selling it said the hg's were blown, started it, let it run... no smoke, checked oil and coolant, nothing suspicious... she drove about 30 mins home...


    has a few wierd gremlins, but i'm gonna start troubleshooting.

    #1. coolant sensor and switch are all icky, replacing those tomorrow, along with a cooling flush and thermostat change.

    #2. guy i bought it from says she cuts out under boost (go figure)

    #3. they had a junkyard computer put in, i think wrong calibration. (came from California)

    #4. drivers door wont lock/unlock with button or key.

    #5. press 'lock', you get nothing, press 'unlock' and the parking lights come on.... thats a srtange one

    #6. keeps blowing an interior lights fuse.

    #7. needs hood, header panel and drivers headlight. due to rearending someone... might just do a 96+ swap...

    #8. interior is in poor condition, center console is torn up around shifter, and lid is warped



    a few bonuses:

    fully optioned, working sunroof, tl rear with trac control, leather (although torn up) premium sound with cd player, new alternator, battery, and radiator.




    EDIT: with pics....

    Tyler, check the wiring on the underhoodhood lamp. That'll blow the interior lighting fuse faster than anything.

    Mine has a short, and if I plug it in, it blows the fuse... then strange things happen.

    The lock button works, but if I hit unlock, the parking lights come on instead.

    really? yours too, huh? so, i'll just pull the hood light assembly, and see if she pops another.

    I'm sure it's a good car but I think the money spent towards the white one would be better spent towards the 95

    Good luck with it

    Take it somewhere to have the HGs checked. It will be cheaper than it will be for you if you need a new lower end.

    stupid n00b question, but how do they check hg's?

    might just do them as a precautionary... given 129k on the ticker, and still on the originals...

    Test from the radiator & sample the coolant for the presents of ** exhaust gas, & or pressure leak down for the not so obvious HG leak.

    progress...

    changed the ect sensor, and coolant temp switch, drove it for a bit, its not overheating per se.... the low speed fan isnt coming on, and the fan wont come on until just a smidge past 'm'

    my intuition is pointing towards the ccrm.... so, i'm gonna go harvest the one from my lx to test on it... changing thermostat, flushing cooling system tomorrow... the radiator has lots of calcium buildup, i'd hate to see what the water jackets look like... probably similar to joel's old lx.

    another bonus, has a recently installed reman. MAF... trans is NEW FORD INSTALL as of 110k miles....

    antiprogress... premium sound cd player doesnt work... poo.

    Have you looked into seeing if the CCRM is interchangeable between the LX and SC?
