Re: Looking at buying an EF Fairmont ... What to look for?
Hi Just a few things,
:Disc's(F and R) , check em, EF's cam out with metallic pads that ate away at the disks,
:Rear main oil seal, sump gasket,, oil leaks under the car. common from output shaft on manuals.
:Rust on top of front guards where the id plates are.
:Buy a haynes manual so you know what to look for.
:check compression, oil, water.
:Good idea to do a Pre Purchase inspection as in my experience this has saved a lot of money in the long run.
