    The front is a little off after having new control arms fitted, but it was torqued correctly with the weight on them. The rear springs are sagging. I went back through some old photos to double check...

    Since Thanksgiving is coming up and I'm headed out of town to see family, I took the car in for tires on Saturday since I'd run the Kumhos down below 4/32nd all the way around. While some may argue...

    The front clunk might be sway bar end links. I was dealing with a clunk on bumps despite a tight front end. The end links had just enough slop to be noisy.

    Best the '87 ever managed was 21 MPG prior to dual exhaust and HO conversion with a 3.27 open rear gear. I don't think it's done any better than 18 since being converted, but I haven't done any...

    Cheapie Dorman clone. You can use it, just keep an eye on it. Some folks have had issues getting them to seal properly around some of the intake ports.

    F8AZ-9424-AAA was the part number for the replacement suite for the nPI intake. It includes the revised aluminum crossover along with the replacement bracketry for the alternator.

    Now if any of...

    That class action settlement was completed in 2005. Ford extended coverage on the intakes for up to seven years after the initial purchase of the vehicle. In both instances, there’s no recourse for...

    I think that generation of Focus was a conventional automatic. I believe the DCT troublemaker came along in 2012 with that new generation of Focus.

    Yup, that’s supposed to be everything they need to clear. :D

    Just waiting for them to ship. Seems like there’s a lead time on them (I ordered mine through Holley), so that’s the only slow down....

    I plan to attempt to use a set of these under my ‘87 since I’m fitting shorty headers and redoing the whole exhaust back. They will be cut down and fitted for wagon side exits if they fit worth a...

    I added dual visors with Homelink to my ‘97 years ago. Absolutely love having them with the convenience factor they offer.

    Always fun times with this car. :D It was definitely nice to finally not see it in an assumed service position. I think it's been about two-ish years since the heavy drivetrain work started and I...

    I've done fluid and filter on a handful of these cars, several of which were definitely a little "past due". Last one was a '99 CV that had a torque converter shudder and what I got out was nasty...

    It's stuff like that which makes me feel better about my own cars, even if subjectively they're also not in the greatest shape.

    Intake manifold crossover is a place to look. If it has the all plastic one, that might be of concern. If it has the later aluminum coolant passage on it, it’s fine.

    Also, check the coolant...

    Usually the conventional, frame type blades fit fine under the hood. It's usually those beam blades that have issues from time to time fitting properly.

    Regarding where blades are made, most I've...

    U-Haul still wants to know what you’re hauling, so I told them a Ram 50 (secretly plus 100). Luckily the place I rented from is a local joint and I know the owner, so he had half a clue what was...

    Whew, long day for myself and the Marquis. Made two round trips from Evans to Waynesboro (roughly 40 miles each way). It should have been one single movement and I shouldn't have towed a whole Dodge....

    Nice LS trim HPP. Definitely needs the rear exhaust hanger rubber replaced, the tailpipes shouldn't be drooping down like that. Coolant reservoir looks like it has brown fluid in it, that should...

    I flushed all the green out of my '97 and replaced it with the G-05 a few years back. It's been fine since the switch, haven't had any issues since. Kinda hard to see it very well in the reservoir...

    Nice turn around from "as purchased" state. Looks like you've got a solid wagon.

    Also spy a tasteful 16" wheel upgrade. ;) Keep on keeping on!

    Both of my cars are open diffs, so whether or not the stuff has the friction modifier in it was of no difference.

    On that matter, however, I’d start with the fluid first if it already has...
