Just bought Fairmont EAII Ghia

Hi All,

I just got a Fairmont EAII Ghia 1990, 3.9l, 226000kms, 4Speed auto and all Ghia options.

I picked it at an auction for $4000. It needed replaced all disc rotors, tie rod ends, ball joints, rear window regulator and the exhaust. So the total price jumped up to $5500. I guess it might be a bit dear but the car is in excellent condition with tidy interior.

Unfortunately I don't know the car history neither I know much about cars - this is my first one. I will get it serviced for the first time soon and would greatly appreciate any advise on what to pay special attention for.

Regards,
Alex

Its either an Spac that has been fitted with ghia interior and wheels or a Ghia with Spac trim....hehe Id say the second one.
When you get the service done get the radiator flushed out and a new thermostat fitted. If you can afford to get them to remove the side tanks of the radiator and clean it out as theyre known to clog up with casting sand over time causing overheating and a blown head gasket.
Get your 4 speed auto serviced as well as theyre costly buggers to repair.
