    1999 GT
    142K on the body
    honestly other than blowing the mtr, tranny and rear end the rest of the car has lasted me quite well


    2003 TERMI
    18K miles
    blew the halfshafts (twice now has a solid rear)
    tranny got stuck in 4th (bent the fork)
    damn front headlights all fogged up
    the previous owner had the "tick" in the head and was replaced
    and how much more my insurance is compared to the GT

    Slow

    likes to drink oil.. or maybe its because i rev the **** of it in daily driving for no reason.

    my exhaust hangers are broke so the exhaust scrapes on 4x4 stock springs.

    biggest newest problem: Its overheats so i have to blast the heat on full max a/c setting when its 94+ degree outside or else it overheat than coolant overboils out the car. =[

    thats it.

    1. has a 2v motor. lol
    2. cats hang too low and i cant lower the 4x4
    3. the 3650 sucks as a tranny.
    4. this is a problem more with how ford built the car but the spark plugs are a pain to get to but were fixed in 05.

    but nothing really major still runs like a champ.

    I believe my rear end is completely shot. Teeth are missing or something. When I accelerate turning a corner it bucks and jumps and skips. When I am cruising and push the clutch in there is a clunking that is constant with the speed of the car.

    Midas told me the rear end was shot. 1500 to fix...

    She is a garage queen right now until it gets warmer so I can dig into it or until someone on here helps me out!

    BAH

    Blower like noise comes from alternator bearings when cold. AC compressor makes a weird ass noise when cold. o/r x pipe rubbed (fixed) 89k and the previous owner didn't have depth perception. Every corner has been scraped. Smells like a bowling alley inside. Driver rear side window leaks water when I wash her.

    -rear end "pops" when turning at low mph, only started after shop installed gears
    -2nd gear syncro hits and grinds when cold, always been like that, ford wouldent replace under warranty
    -Loud wind noise from windshield driver corner, replaced twice and still does it,??
    - Rides like poo, lowered to much, my fault
    -6 disc changer loves acting up on its own, swear i think its alive sometimes
    - Something was rattling under car, got in a wreck and it fixed it, or dropped it one
    - Just got car back from shop, lady pulled out in front of me, now the door drops when opened, and horn now sounds like a dieing cat?? Will take back soon
    - Full lenth headers hit everything, even small roadkill
    -draws attention which sometimes is bad

    1. Intake Manifold cracked the second day I owned it. 98K miles
    2. Was having trouble with a misfire but fixed with new wires and plugs
    3. The actual stranded wire on the FRPP wires I bought stuck out of the boot, causing it to arc to my valve cover bolt, causing a misfire
    4. Could never shift the gears very fast because it would grind
    5. Tranny finally broke
    6. Spec clutch chattered horribly
    7. Replaced under their warranty, still chattered, just not as bad
    8. Put in a 99 PI motor
    9. Disappointed in how my crower 2's dont lope at all
    10. Broke the rebuilt tranny, and have LONGtubes now :(
    11. Swapped rear ends with my friend (traded my 410's for 373s. Now I have a slightly leaky rt rear axle seal and a leaky pinion seal. but not as much gear noise which is good
    12. EBRAKE rattles
    13. Front end clunks (hoping cobra control arms will fix it)
    14. Rear end clunks (would like to blame MM XHD control arms but not sure what it is)
    15. I cant stand the idle on this car, it should idle at 1200 in the morning, then quickly drop to 700 and be good about dropping after its warmed up.
    16. Instead it idles around 900 almost all the time, if not higher
    17. Wide tires cause the car to pull on certain roads
    18. Need to repaint my front bumper
    19. Ground for cooling fan got corroded and melted the connector. So my car has boiled over 2 times so far. (fixed with a new pigtail)
