Some problems with age

ReviewThe car is not that bad. I purchased it new. Occassionally the Check engine light flares , due to ethanol fuel. Ethanol is corn,which attracts water. Disconnect the battery, remove the fuel filter, blow out the gas and water,add a bottle of Rubbing alcohol to only 5 gals of gas, reconnect the battery after 5 minutes to reset the ECM.and it's good for the next few weeks. If I can retrofit a glass bowl purge type system ,that might eliminate the water. Also, I just replaced that dual speed fan control switch for $38..and saved plenty. Ford said it'll cost about $800 . That little fan switch controls the A/C vacum doors, power brake boosters, speed control and other do dads. Running good now.
Best FeaturesPlenty of room, removable seat to help save up to 25% in fuel costs, or use it as a cargo van . Plush seats that fold into a bed. Easy dashboard controls. You can now buy a snap on tent for the rear hatch door, with a flex pipe for the exhaust so you can run the engine for heat. Still get 22mpg
Worst FeaturesChange the front seats to allow for height control. Eliminate power windows and add a roll down window for the side cargo door.
