    Back after a long hiatus.

    Howdy all. I used to frequent the forums 15+ years ago when I had my XR7s. Had to give the cars up due to funds, fatherhood and just plain life. My son is now 20 and we found him a 92 Sc 5 Speed with 89k on it. Actually bought it from the classifieds here. Got the car running great now and...

    91 SC Automatic

    I just want this thing gone. Got a 91 sc from a buddy and he can't find the title. I'm not putting time and money into a car I can't drive. Low Down: Believe the head gaskets have blown. He said he saw white smoke one day and shut the engine off. Started to take the SC pipe off and put them in...

Must be manual. Color does not matter, however already had a red one and black one so white would be nice. Let me...

    EPC circuit

    Having a problem with a 90 sc. Ran the codes today and got 98 - Hard Fault Present. Did a little research and found out it has to do with the transmission circut/solenoid. The car is a five speed with a motor from an automatic. Obviously the computer is for a five speed. Any suggestions?

    No Brakes

    Not trying to hijack your thread but my buddy has a similar problem. His pump keeps running. Is it the relay or is there a sensor that he is missing somewhere. I don't like to mess with these brake systems. In december, my 90 caught on serious fire because the abs pump kept running. Thanks...

    Tach ?

    Funny you mentioned the speedo jumping. I just started putting my 89 xr7 back together and when I started it it did the same thing. It did it before I parked it but not often enough to be a concern to me. I has done it about 4 or 5 times since I put the motor back together. The milage goes...

    Take quick peak at your brake M/C

    This might be useful I may not.... In my down near the bottom of the fender area to the right inside the wheel well, there is a pressure switch of some kind that busted seals and was leaking fluid out causing the pedal to become rock hard. I don't know if your leaking fluid, but that caused my...

    AOD Trans

    My buddy has a 91 sc w/AOD. He's slowly losing overdrive and will need a new tranny soon. His previous car, 88 Lincoln Mark VII LSC (5.0) is about to be scrapped. The AOD tranny in it needs a rebuild. His question is does the tranny in the Lincoln have the same internals as his SC? Between...

    how much did you all pay for your cars.......

    Bought my first XR7 in may of 2000 w/98k for $3500. Black, grey cloth, no options. Drove it three years only needing a clutch and rebuilt tranny. Second one bought in march 2003 w/161k for $800. Red black leather all options except moonroof and JBL. I swear it was the better of the two...

    Removal of old style rear view mirror

    We had to remove one like that at a detail shop I used to work at. We used a heat gun very carefully on the outside of the glass. Took a good 10 minutes. Don't heat it directly on the glass. Use a good distance but enough to heat the glass (3-4inches) I wouldn't do it outside in the cold...

    'Check Gage' light, everything looks ok

    With all gauges looking ok, I too had the check gauge light popping on and off. After 2 months off guessing, it turned out to be a bad oil pressure sending unit. The seal in the sender was going bad and giving false readings. The gauge itself would sit about a 1/5 of the way up (close to...
