91 GT info request... Good Buy?
Hey guys, I'm looking for a little advice. I used to own an 89 GT, and it had close to 200k miles on it. It burned a lot of oil, but I put another 50k on it only having to replace the battery and alternator. I had a lot of problems with some little ignition module or something like that. It would get hot and burn out. I could try to turn the engine over, but it wouldnt start. It may have been more of an issue because the fan didnt work. Eventually, when having that item replaced, the mechanic messed other stuff up, and I had to wreck the car. Today I saw a 91 GT for sale with 75k miles on it. It is only 1000$, and seems to be a good runner. It is in great shape, and I've seen a lot of good, cheap deals from this dealer out in the country before. I don't know much about the 91 though, except that it's a redesign. Are there any common problems with it? Does this known issue with that ignition module still exist with the 91? I heard that it's actually a Mazda engine (which I like because they seem to run forever!!!) is this true? Does this sound like a good buy to you guys? What do you think of the 91GT overall? Lastly, I remember using some online forum a LOT for help with my 89, but it's been a while, and I can't find that forum anymore... and Im sure it's not this one. Does anyone know of other good ford/escort/gt forums that I can use with this one as a reference? Thanks in advance.
