    She started blowing out blue smoke from the tailpipe 2 months ago. I knew it was REALLY BAD.
    Just took it into the shop and they said #3 cylinder is comprised and damaged.
    It's the end for the car engine.
    I'm going to try some engine fix for her in the meantime.
    But she's up for sale now.
    Needs another rebuilt in her. I just don't have that cash.
    If anyone's interested, I've sunk 5k into her the last year. New brakes, tires, windshield.
    Let me know generally where everyone want's to see the posts at...Cars.com etc.
    I'll try my best to accommodate.
    I have the complete maintenance on this car from purchase in 2000. Currently the repairs are at $50, 150.
    Yeah, I could have bought better, but when you LOVE a car...your in it for all it's worth.
    I've maintained this car to almost showroom factory as I had hoped for.

    Save all the good shit I've replaced. Just put in a new engine.....that should save some on your side.
    Any acceptable offer is available. It is quite a daily drivable as of today. Gas mileage has dropped significantly as #3 cylinder burns out.

    With my transmission problems and soon to be unemployed, my Escort might be right behind Binky.
