107500 on an 03 ZX5; replaced the clutch master cylinder at 86k, changed the thermostat housing last weekend... and now the clutch started slipping today. Not sure if it's worth fixing at this point...

It's a whole lot cheaper than a car payment!
Did you get new or used parts on your clutch job? It sounds like a bad repair for only lasting 21k.

The master cylinder I did myself with new parts (and what a headache it was); this is actually the (original) friction plates slipping--they're worn out after a good bit of city driving and trailer pulling.

Car's at the shop now; I found a good rate on labor and some decent parts. Now as long as nothing else breaks...

Fix it and put the car payment that would have been contributed to a new Focus into escrowe account. Save for a few months and viola', a down payment on a new Focus. ((((THINK AHEAD MAN )))).

2000 zx3 2.0 ztec 5spd 169k
I looked through the service records and found
a replaced timing belt.
some issues with the fuel system.
Just recently the intermidiate bearing went out on the cv shaft
and I replaced the water pump shortly after i bought it
need new shocks bad... if I get feelin sporty, once my tires break loose the wheels just hop me into a ditch.
