1992 Escort: The gas tank leaks. Saw that in 1995 the plastic tanks cracked also. Is a warranty still available when such a recall was announced way back? It is dangerous!
Otherwise, HOW DO YOU FIX Cracks that develop in a plastic fuel tank of an Escort, that results in leakage!
2. Is a Escort Stationwagon fuel tank a different size than the passenger model.

Why is the speedometer needle erratic now? It goes from 20 to80 to50 to35 and so on. I've replaced the cluster a couple of times now and that seemed to fix the problem for a time. Will a worn speedometer cable cause this? It seems after about 150,000 the speedometer needle starts this symptom, on any cluster I've owned, however, I don't think I've ever changed the cable, only the cluster, used of course, but it has worked so far.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
