Contour question

Not really a question. I have been getting cranky at all the CRAP e-mails
from scammers since I have posted info about my 1995 Contour GL for salez in
the classified section of another forum. (Mis-spelling on purpose in case
the programmatically scan for stuff)

The apology is for the intrusion here. This has been a great group for
helping me fix up a few things in preparation for sale. Someone here can
certainly do the rest if they are interested in the car.

I have a 1995 GL 5 speed, 112K miles. Green.

The bad first
-warm AC
-CEL but no code
-Occasional hesitation and sputter
-slight wrinkle in hood caused by a snow load falling off a roof
-Small dent in one fender
-Missing 2 hubcaps

The good
-Its a Contour
-Its been passed PA safety and emissions inspection
-Its green
-It runs
-Only 112K miles
-I'm an honest guy and I will not try and deceive you
-Its cheap
-I just waxed it

The New
-breaks
-tire
-EGR valve
-DPFE sensor
-Bosch platinum plugs
-Exhaust
-Oil

I am asking for any reasonable or slightly below reasonable offer. Car in SE
PA. Reply here I will monitor thread.

Idiot. You tell us it is wrong to post this stuff and you even make it so
that scanners won't spot it as spam.

It is spam. If you want to sell this, sell it on ebay or use your local
newspaper's classified ads.

Re: Contour question

I saw the photo and the car isn't in good condition. If a wheel cover
is missing, I wonder what else is wrong with it...

Get rid of the Bosch Plats and you will LIKELY get rid of the
hesitation/sputter.

Re: Contour question

I listed what is wrong with it in the original posting. of course its not
perfect, its 10 years old. I will be up front with its issues and the car
will be sold at a fair price given its condition.

Re: Contour question

For real? NAPPA only had the Bosch, thats what was there from factory. They
were out of the champions or any other compatible plug, At the time I
figured I would rather spend $4 per plug then drive all over town looking
for the $1 plugs.

Thanks for looking.
