Garage
Bought 1995 Escort LX

This is my new car and project, got a great deal on this garage kept car of 1995 with 119,000 miles on it.

But do have to do some minor and major work with the miles on this car. It's all just replacement work, car runs great right now, but parts don't last forever either.

The 3 main things I have to do now are a water pump / timing belt and main belt replacement, fuel pump / filter replacement, and the major job - the clutch...And a rattling of some sort underneath the shifter, I have yet to look at ...


All help and input on this work would be greatly nice from all you out there ...

Re: Bought 1995 Escort LX

Rattle could be as simple as exhaust heat shield , but you should see better when you do the clutch .
