When you are sitting and idling the steering wheel vibrates, what is causing this?
Question Asked: Radiator Fluid

Replaced the radiator and reservoir after the hose blew off the radiator. The water consistency was a rusty orange mapley smell but it kept the engine cool, never overheat until the past week. If you run the engine and the air conditioning it would overheat. After putting the radiator and reservoir in, we put in the green coolant. The flow backed up into the reservoir and overflows out the top. The overflow is a foamy purplishly brown green. The a/c is blowing cool but the heater is not blowing. The gauge goes above the middle but not going to the HOT.
Car Review: 2000 Ford Escort
July 20, 2009, 02:34 PM
Bought the 2000 Ford Escort second hand for daughter. It has been a great running car for her with minor maintenance. She got it for her 17th birthday and just turned 24, so she has gotten the money we invested in it. My son liked hers so much that when it was time for his, we got him a 2000 Escort ZX, of course, the boys want those 'need for speed'. Now he has been in 3 accidents where he has gone up under pickup trucks. He finally learned his lesson but he has never done any mechanical work but he decided his last accident he would do his own repair because his father refused to. The car is very friendly for the novice to learn on. He had to do some body work and replaced the radiator and front end. Still a work in progress but engine wise it has been a great running vehicle.
I have to say this is ONE model of Ford that have felt it was worth the money.
