Car belonged to my grandmother until
the headgasket failed (as many Ford
3.8Ls do) at ~68000 miles. Coolant
leaked into the crankcase... spun a
bearing and threw a rod. I got the
opportunity to replace the engine...
Its a nice car when it is running.
Seafoam Green is probably the ugliest
color in the world though.
Poorly Designed headgaskets that fail
to account for the different expansion
rates of cast iron and aluminum.
Buy the 3.8L from GM. The Buick
designed 90 degree 3.8L V6 is
infinitely better than the Ford...
