When I turned 15, I was already deeply in love with cars. I loved everything automotive related, and always wrenched with my pop on his many 300TD wagons. At this age, I saved up enough cash to buy a junkyard 1993 Volvo 240 wagon, and restore it with him; a car that I drive to this day. Fast forward to today, where I have several of these Volvos and have fallen in love with their Swedish charm; I never expected to learn to love a little Ford wagon from the 90's. But that's exactly what I've done. My great-grandmother, Ada, owned this 1998 Ford Escort SE wagon from new, and took exceptionally good care of it. It has no body rust, and very few scratches or dents. It only has 108,000 original miles, and she has decided that now, at the age of 98 years old, to pass her beloved Ford down to me. At first, I did what I could to care for the car, as it hadn't been driven since she had been diagnosed as 'legally blind' at 96 years old, so I have it an oil change, a fresh set of plugs, and I began driving it off-and-on. And I completely fell in love with the little car. I never expected to adore a tiny Ford wagon, but I have! This little Escort has become a staple member of me and my roommates' fleet of odd cars, and has become my go-to daily driver while I work on my Volvos and Saabs. I've done tons of research on the Escort, and have maintained it properly so far - but this thread is basically me asking for advice on how you all care for your stock Escort wagons. I don't want to modify the Ford (yet), I want to keep her nice and stock and cared for, just like my great grandma wants - and I intend to do that for her. Does anyone have some advice, or any tricks that worked for them in caring for a stock 2.0L 3rd gen wagon? My wagon has no modifications, and is an automatic.
