Re: EL falcon problems
Check the colour of the coolant. I totally agree with checking the coolant the old pink or purple stuff Ford used is crap. It eats through hoses and Orings. Check for head gasket which is common across ALL E-series to blow. Other than that check all maintenence stuff, as SPALDING GREEN said, check brake rotors and brake pads too. Try and score brake pads out of them for RWC, as they may need to replace the disc's while they're at it as they could be undersized. Good luck with the purchase.
