New User Help with my Escourt.
HI all i am very new to this forum.
Very glad to have found you all.
I moved to u.s a year ago and got given a ford escourt.
It is a 96 model 1.9 engine.
The alternator went today i tested it with a multi meter.
I am from england so i have no idea if i would be getting ripped off, so how much should i pay to get it changed??
Also i am thinking og just doing it myself it looks like the alternator is right at the top.
Do any of you know where i can download the manual for this car? Or maybe one of you can let me know how hard it is.
I will not be able to get the car off the ground so if i need to get underneath for a bolt forget it.
This car has gone 122k on this engine and still going strong. This is the second alternator to go.
I got this car from my grandmother in law she got a new kia spectra which i think is crap compared to the ford.
Also i had a look under the bonnet sorry the hood and alot of the stuff like the air flow meter is made in japan is this a mazda with a ford badge??
I hope you guys can help i do not really have much cash and i just got my first job in U.S which i start next monday so i need the car. It took a full year for immigration to let me work.
By the way all my name is malcolm.
I have a bad bearing in the back which i need to sort out sometime. I want to keep this car going forever.
