    Ranger was aligned today at the same shop that did the wagon. For the first time in owning it, the steering wheel is on-centre. Drives well, pretty numb on-centre but I think that's normal for these....

    As for the turn signal stalk horn: it is far, far superior to the centre of the steering wheel, in my opinion. I find it more intuitive and that it's easier to operate with...

    The AOD originally spec'd GM Dexron II. After the Mercon spec was created (which is compatible with Dexron III), that became the preferred fluid for the AOD. Mercon V can replace Mercon, but there is...

    Noticed on the Used Vehicle Information Package (a thing we have in Ontario) that the odometer was noted as being 195,000km in 2011. The odometer currently is 195,853. It seems likely to me the car...

    I passed on it. I went over it in detail with a mirror, it's just a little bit too much. Rockers are toast (though they pass cosmetically, the bottom side is gone). Rust levels are just a bit beyond...

    I looked at it this morning. Took it for a test drive. Great car for the money. Not as unrusty as I had assumed, it's pretty crusty underneath, but not too far gone to be worth $1000.

    I do not know the year of the Crown Vic. It seems to have a centre high mount stop lamp, so that would make it an 86-87. If it's older, it's still at least 83+. It will be carb or SEFI, if it was...
