Hello there. I am new to working on my own vehicle aside from fluid changes. I am the owner of a thoroughly used 91 Escort Pony 1.9 and when I say thoroughly, I mean exterior and interior cosmetically. The only saving grace is that the engine only has 150k on it which is tremendous for a 30 year old car. I have all the service paperwork as the woman who owned it was one of those only drive when necessary and store when not until she decided to give it to her grandson in its last 35k miles. He was not kind to it. The interior is stripped pretty bare and the body has some damage. He also drove it with completely bad struts(which I have since replaced.) So this is my first project car so to speak and I am currently awaiting new tie rods as well as a few minor cosmetic things like lift supports and a new driver side door handle. I may be asking you fine folks some questions unless I can find my owner's manual which has disappeared in our last move. I know it's in a box, I just dont know which one. I look forward to documenting its changes and progress over the next few months. Cheers and happy driving.
