Funny that I had stopped at my local Ford to order a motor mount, and the seat dropped right in the Stealership parking lot! Hoping to have a buddy pull a Lug Nut and bring her back from the dead...
: Well, she's back on the road!!!
Ended up rebuilding the head, new timing belt, two new motor mounts, new water pump, new IAC valve, new pcv valve and hose, and new side mirror. Purring like a kitten. [total cost: $1200]
Now thinking about changing the transmission fluid/filter. It hasn't been done before and car has about 110,000 miles. Anyone think this would be a mistake?? Really hate to screw up the tranny after just spening so much $$$ to get her going again...
