2000 ZX3.
^^^ Let us know what died..Hopefully its an easy fix..even a used motor is CHEAP..

I just put a new clutch in mine for "ahem" performance reasons....And the stock clutch at 157,000 was still looking good. plenty of life left on it.

Bought mine new in March '03. Now has 101,000. Flipped and hit a deer, no problems that weren't my fault.

2002 ZTS, standard
Zetec
127,xxx (delivered pizza for over 6mo w/it)

Major probs so far - clutch, flywheel & master cylinder replaced at around 90k, thermostat housing, valve cover gasket, serp belt (twice), motor mounts, timing belt (just this weekend) and it's still sitting on blocks, got us stumped as to why it won't start. Replaced the fuel filter & about to replace the wires, looking into other things.

I love my car, tho! Altho over the past couple of days I've thought otherwise LOL

Not quite like a pet dying, but it does hurt a little. I've been riding on borrowed time for quite awhile as the last timing belt change I did was some where around 120k.

I took a look at it yesterday and it is the timing belt. I'll be looking to bring it back to life in the next few weeks.

BTW, I drove it like I stole it for the first few years. Switched to synthetic oil after about 8k and then back to dino juice around 150k. Not sure if this has much to do with it or not.
