Just get in here and do lots of reading on this forum, soon you'll know how to fix a lot of things on it yourself without having to take it to a mechanic to have a light bulb changed. Another good investment would be a Ford factory service manual. It tells you everything there is to know about your car. If you're not use to working on cars, just start out by giving yourself plenty of time to do the jobs and you'll soon get comfortable with doing your own work, but while learning never start something unless you know you have time to finish it correctly. I've been working on my own cars now for over 30 years and I've owned one of my '88 Escorts for almost 16 years. I think I could disassemble and re-assemble half of that car in my sleep. By doing my own work I know I'm not getting robbed by some mechanic and also know the job is being done right. My oldest '88 has 494K miles and still going about 50 miles a day. Escorts are an easy car to work on too, so you got a good one for learning on.
