Question Asked: 

I'd like to install a new one-can't seem to locate it. Thanks in advance.

Question Asked: 

The new manifold is in-I do not note any leaks around the perimeter.Yet,the car is still leaking antifreeze at the rear,and dripping below the clutch.(Prior to the manifold replacement,it leaked by the thermostat and I suspected somewhere at the rear of the motor. Any ideas? Given the tight motor fit,it's hard for a driveway guy to diagnose. Thank you.

Question Answered: 

May need fuel pump relay-also a good idea to change the fuel filter when you change a pump.

Question Asked: 

Any cure for these hinges that use elastomer instead of springs? They usually fail to hold a heavy door open on the slightest slope,the second Ford that I've had with this issue-it is not worn,just a crappy design.

Question Asked: 

The car had a dieing issue,supposedly the crank sensor.That's been replaced.The ignition module changed(so the manifold has been off-this latest issue since the manifold was off.I don't know if it's related,or something connected to the first problem.

Question Answered: 

Unless you already have an established relationship with someone,I think not.I suppose that you could ask the local guys.A big chain might suggest one of their own credit cards,but if you don't qualify for that,or don't have an existing card,that would be a red flag.Not many want to speculate with their labor or parts expense.....at least not in the car biz.

Question Answered: 

I'm going through this same sort of issue with my 2002.The most likely culprit is the fuel pump.

Question Asked: 

Will a bad fuel pump also trip this relay? Car drops dead,fuel pressure is definitely there after the car sits(don't know if it's there at dropping time) Car has no spark,but if it sits longer,will start up fine.

Question Answered: 

Hi, I would imagine a very small market for an old Escort with high miles,but if you think it is still reliable,you might think about selling it. The car is probably worth about 200 to a salvage or scrap metal dealer.I'm in Huntington,and Gershow Scrap Metal might pay you about that for the car.Simply so much per pound.
