I know we probably have a lot of stories, but I wanna hear escort related ones. What's the worst thing to happen to just your escort, or you while you were in it?
in march i blew my whole electrical. blew alternator,battery,ground, etc etc. paid 350 to fix battery and ground......2 days later it died, paid 120 for alternator and put it in myself. spent 500 in that period, the most i had ever spent on anything in my whole life.Electronikal said:hahaha my alternator / battery both died on me while i was dating this hot chick for the first time lol...
ahhh poor me...no candy that night for sure lol
yeah my O2 sensors been bad for 8 months now. dont got the 58 bucks to fix. iknow the pain. my timing belt was on the verge of spliting, then my MAF went and i was getting 8 miles a gallon with a deccelerating engine. cost me a total of 300 to fix that week.........highanddry said:O2 sensor died Xmas Eve 1999 at 12:30 am, three hours from anything resembling civilization. Car would not run past 20 km/hr, chugging severely and went through 3/4 of a tank of gas in about 50 km before it finally stalled out for good. Think you can get any help or even a jerry can of gas at that time on Xmas Eve? I didn't like my chances.
It is to defy pricks like those two "public servants" that I will keep my rusty POS on the road as long as I can. Long live the Escort!
