Hello new to stangnet. I recently inherited my grandpa's 92 lx 2.3l hatchback. It ended up sitting for 8 years before It fell into my hands.
Things I know about the car:
1: grandpa was 1st owner
2: transmission has been rebuilt several times (2 i think, could be wrong)
3: car has been driven 400k
4: Body is in fantastic shape
5: Headlight housings are broken and cracked(already ordered new ones)
6: Interior is near mint (passanger mirror hole cover and door handle bezel are cracked)
7: car has new brakes and rotors(they were seized when i got it
Essentially looking for help and advise as I fix it up.
Didnt know where this thead should go because its mainly just my hello and overview of my car.
Overall the car runs fine, engine wise' but the car has been having shifting problems and there is a leak somewhere in the automatic transmission(a4ld). It's been driven 315xxx.
It has the 2.3L lima engine in it. At this point I think it will be more economical to give the car the turbo treatment, plus you hear everyone doing v8 swaps, and I think it will be cool to do something that goes a little against the norm. Right now money is pretty tight for me so I dont think that for the next little bit I'll be able to afford to upgrade the car beyond making sure that its running and reliable.
Got the transmission lines fixed, saw that the rad hose was rubbing and had started to crack so i replaced that. Car runs fine and shifts alright so I dont think that when the transmission line blew any damage happened to the tranny.
