    Haha. I'm trying to get my car to run the way its sposed to. I get all sorts of noises and crap coming from the engine..I have to get my head-gasket redone because my dad didn't both cleaning all the crap off the head and make a nice mating surface..so I get twice the smoke and fluid coming out my tailpipe..I figure Ill just pay someone to do it because I don't have the time on my hands right now. But you're from central florida? Where in FL?

    Oh, im in St. Marys, GA, about 30 mins from Jacksonville. Orlando is about 3 hours from me. If you need help, I'd be happy to drive down there sometime and help you with the Scort. I've come to learn quite abit about the engines and how to fix em.

    I know what you mean. Im tight on money right now. Im stashing money into my bank account like mad so I can move out soon but things keep coming up. This week I should be getting my clutch replaced..Ill get another grille mount, grille and fender. So then I can be happy and just have to go get a rear bumper and a new passenger door..then Ill be happy and stop wasting money til I move out. But Im free most of the weekends and such.

    Haha. What I've done to MY scort? Fixing it. Im in the process of pulling a fixit and replacing half the panels on my car. Just orders a new grille bracket, GT grille, and passenger fender and hopefully I can get a door from a junkyard soon. By the time we even meet up I should have my scort fixed for the most part and stuff.

    Not a problem man. I've got myself a job and all, I could pay for a hotel. Just couldn't get the hotel room because Im under..18. Im not sure what age it is there to get a hotel, but in GA its 18..I think it was 18 in FL when I lived there.

    Im actually 100% I could do the water pump and timing belt. Timing belt takes a while only because you have to remove the serpentine belt, the tensioner, and motormount to get the cover off. But other than that, it takes about an hour to do that.
