    need some info with sc

    so im looking into trading my truck for a 1993 ford thunderbird super coupe...
    the car runs pretty good exept, here some problems.
    there is something like knocking or ticking in the back of motor?
    the engine smells like antifreeze
    and when you shift from P to Drive the engine almost dies the rpms drop almost to about less then 500.
    any info on what it could be?
    and then the other thing.
    when the guy took me on test drive everytime he would gun it,the firm ride or something like that light would come up?
    thanks for the replys in advance

    What's your truck worth?
    The motor on the SC doesn't sound solid. It could be a head gasket which would require some major work.


    Don't crash into a tree just to avoid a skunk!

    Yeah, it sounds like head gasket and if it smells like antifreeze, he shouldnt be driving it. also the firm ride comes on automaticly like that when the car is kicked down. The ticking sound could be detenation.
