AU1 XR6 Problems/Questions
I just have a few queries. First of all I find the ride in my late '99 AU1 XR, really rough. When I go over a bump I really do feel it. On my friends AU3 this is really a mute point. Just wondering if I can improve the ride somehow or is this the result of body work or other adjustments that I cannot really make.
Admittedly my friend does have a VCT with IRS, so this may be another factor in the disparity between rides. His car does feel very stable or at least heavier than mine through the steering.
Next point to consider...
I recently had my engine die due to a faulty oil pump. Thankfully Ford replaced the entire short-end for free.
However since the rebuild, two problems have arisen.
a) there is a small sound that I feel is a loose item. I cannot identify what it is and I do not want to take it to the dealership just yet, as I do not believe everyone is as sensitive about how my car sounds as I am.
b) on very hot days the cruise control light comes on by itself and I start hearing a static noise. I took the car back to the dealership. After running comp diagnostics, no problems were evident.
If anyone has any suggestions or has experienced similar effects, your input would be appreciated.
