Things creep up without rhyme or reason. My 95 has been a pretty good ride, and the 72 is just showing it's age. In the last month I dumped $900 into my 97 T-Bird. Reagrdless of how much you like a car, I think they're the same as a boat....a hole in the ocean you pour money into.

So far, so good. I've done some big ticket preventive maint. items like the water pump and opti-spark before they have gone bad (did them when I was installing the S/C).

I have yet to be stranded (knock on wood). :partyon:

One thing that needs to be checked yearly is the radiator area. It collects anything that will fit up there, then it builds up and you have an overheating problem. I cleaned it out one year when I overheated (which cost me an AIR pump, Alternator and my MAF relays) it already had a good amount built up between the radiator and A/C condensor just 1 year later. I installed a debris screen in Dec. and I will see how well a debris screen works come late fall.

As a bonus of cleaning that out you run cooler and have more power and probably better gas milage.:thumbsup:

When I first got the 91 back 6 years ago the first week I had the water pump replaced. The second week the alternator went. I was think SOB this car really sucks.

Knock on wood in the last 6 years nothing else broke. I don’t rack up the miles on it and last summer if I put 2k miles on it that would be lucky.

:cheers:

What's gone wrong on your GS?:huh:
I have only had the GS since December, only problem to date has been a set or front breaks and recently the cruse control quite working. I have not had a chance to check out the cruse yet (maybe the fact that I don’t use it much, it has not been much of a problem) short of that it has been great, no complaints here.....................:D
