'99 Escort sedan problem and question...
I have a 1999 Escort sedan, with the lower end 2.0L I4, and I'm having issues with the water temperature gauge and/or sensor. It wasn't working for a while there, and now that I've replaced the sensor with another used one from another Escort, it works sporadically. Is this something I should replace with a new one?
Also, I now have some SERIOUS rust damage to the left rear quarter underneath the gas door, from what looks like the seal around the gas inlet crapping out. Is this a common problem on Escorts? Should my sister ('99 Escort wagon) and my dad ('99 Escort sedan also) be worried about this too?
P.S.: Forgive my rather lacking post count...I lost track of the forums for a few years after I first found it.
