    -Heater core bypassed (that brings many problems of its own)
    -Heads are leaking oil
    -Passanger window doesnt go up or down without some help
    -Passanger floorboard is constantly wet
    -Front and rear bumpers are warped
    -Exhaust pipes arent lined up evenly
    -Paint is fading
    -Belt squeek like a sob and no amount of wd-40 or anything can fix it -any suggestions


    Let me get in it and I am sure I can find more things-be back shortly

    You know what else is wrong with my car. My ashtray door works and so does my maplight. :shrug:

    '90
    Hot starts
    Car tends to shake when moving in reverse
    Front/rear bumper paint peeling (most annoying). Guess I'll spend a little more on my next paint job.

    '92
    Havn't gotten shift kit right. Hangs on 2nd/3rd gear shift (during normal driving) then suddenly lunges the car forward.
    Vibrating at higher speeds (probably the dirveshaft)

    The list could go on forever on mine, but among the most immediate issues that come to mind:

    - The Satanic Possession Issue (causes slightly rough/low idle and occasional light surging/power loss) which I've decided I will probably never figure out or cure
    - Leaky/nonexistent sunroof (got the new one sitting in my car room, just need time to install)
    - Low-hanging exhaust that scrapes on every bump/hump (still not too happy with UPR's cat'ed X-pipe fitment)
    - That bizarre, annoying low-speed squeaking from the pinion seal (not the bearing) that only goes away for a week or so with a squirt of Seafoam Deep Creep or WD-40
    - Total heater bypass/heater tube delete sucks for cold mornings or when you wanna defog the windshield in a jiffy
    - The slow coolant leak that I'll probably never figure out (losing about 1/2 quart per week/150 miles) and that Bar's Heavy Duty Stop Leak I poured in makes my coolant look like diarrhea (a total PITA to flush out)
    - The countless dents everywhere on my car, especially that stupid dimple in the nose of the hood that every OEM Fox body hood seems to have
    - Having to use my trip odometer to guess at my remaining fuel level (already have a new fuel tank sender and Edelbrock pump, also waiting to be installed if/when I ever get time) and having to refill every 150 miles to avoid running the risk of going dry
    - My driver's side seat edge is so close to the door that the seatbelt shoulder strap gets trapped between the armrest and the top/side of the seat, gotta leave the door open to put the belt on sometimes
    - Broken vent cowl
    - Broken ashtray door spring
    - Broken armrest console latch
    - Nowhere convenient to mount my 3-gauge set with my big honkin' Autometer tach installed

    That's about all I can think of in one sitting. Y'know ... just little stuff. A LOT of little stuffs. :(

    mine likes to randomally idle at 1200 rpm sometimes, and there are some squeaks at rattles inside that I'm trying to locate.

    seats have major ghetto lean
    clutch is stiffer than my frist hard on
    power locks dont work
    power mirrors dont work

    -my sound system isn't loud enough
    -stock srt4's start pulling on me in fourth
    -some rubbing somewhere i need to locate in the front end due to lowering
    -back end is much higher than stock... with lowering springs in it :shrug:
    -turbines :nonono:
    -crappy brakes, partly due to a very slow leak in the rear softline
    -225 tires
    -dirty k&n
    -front left wheel bearing is a little dry, so major humming at 40mph+
    -DS or u-joint makes vibration a problem on the freeway
    -$400 cobra tranny grinds second under hard shifts (can't complain though, better than a busted stock t5)
    -speedo really doesn't work (i go 60 in residential apparently:shrug:)
    -65A alternator
    -paint is oxidized, and clearcoat is gone everywhere but a corner of rear bumper
    -little bit of rust/bubbling on left hatch shoulder
    -sagging front and rear bumpers
    -bumped a curb and bent my foglight mounting bracket yesterday, so both lights point straight down at the ground
    -main relay hangs down onto my legs most of the time
    -no pad on clutch pedal
    -gets me too many tickets
    -cheesegrater taillights
    -left foglight missing glass cover
    -front main seal oil leak
    -power steering whines
    -temp gauge doesn't work
    -16 mpg max
    -rear defroster.....what rear defroster? i thought those were just lines on the rear window
    -very small backseat :nonono:
    -ashtray spring broken
    -it's got freckles
    -small dents along driver's side, fairly decent one in hood
    -dirty ass engine bay
    -gay redorange stripe in moulding
    -passenger window motor needs "persuading" sometimes

    positives:
    -for mostly stock exhaust, it sounds NICE
    -more torque than all my friends
    -i can drive better than most of my friends
    -handles fairly decent now
    -no major rust
    -interior in very good condition IMO

    My cat-back system needs to be upgraded to stainless. Besides that, I'm pretty happy with it :D
