    The button popped out of E-brake handle.....

    I released the e-brake on my 89 SC 5 speed and the button went flying onto the passenger floor.... I guess I need to find out... 1. Is there a repair kit for this??? 2. Is the e-brake handle the same for auto and 5-speed?? ( In case a replacement is only option.) 3. Any other...

    Fuel pump intermittant.....

    Fuel pump intermittant.....

    When I turn the key to 'on' you can hear the fuel pump and the ABS pump kick on. Every so often, only the ABS pump turns on and of course the car will not start. I have reset and Replaced the Inertia switch and the fuel pump. I guess I need to find out where the Fuel pump relay is so I can...

    What Kind of Gas Milage are you getting

    For all city and's not bad!!! Now you need to save a few pennies drop in a K&N intake filter and a Cat-Back exhaust system to free it up a little and power and gas mileage should go up!!! plus keep putting the 93 octane in it!!! You will be much happier with the way it runs!!!

    Car hesitant sometimes?

    You described my problem perfectly, runs great/ runs losy/ runs great/ runs lousy.... no rhyme or reason to it. Had the timing cover seal replaced since it was leaking oil onto the crank sensor, that didn't fix it.... Finally, decided to replace the DIS module. Voila! runs perfect! No...

    Lots more parts for sale

    those door pulls do not remove from the panels easily..... I ended up making new ones out of 3/4 board and then adding a bit of fowm and recovering them with a bit of vinyl. If you use those mounting tabs that held the originals in place, they can mount up quite nicely!! Just takes a few...

    PCMED Manual??

    I have an 89 5-speed and the Check Engine light came on for about 10 minutes... It ran as if it were on 4-5 cylinders and wouldn't idle at all. My normal Mechanic's scanner died so he couldn't get the codes... I took it to FORD, it recently changed hands and the former owner took ALL the...

    First SC 1995 77k original cuts out....little help?

    If those ideas don't fix it completely, check inside the throttle body housing for gunk! I had changed plugs and wires and cleaned the MAF 3-4 times bofore looking inside the throttle body.... sprayed carb cleaner in there and wiped a bunch of 'gunk' out of it....runs like a dream now!! Now...

    I officially have worse MPG than my Pick Up

    I have to agree w/ S. Mazza.... You guys need some serious help!!! 1. Are you running 92-93 octane fuel?? If you run 89 (or worse) you are going to get really lousy mileage!!! Pay the 'extra' $2 per fillup and see what happens....( it will take 2-3 fillups to bring the octane up!!!)...
