2001 se wagon with 225,000 kms

running strong, timing belt ($500 job ouch) & couple ball joints at 180k, just put in new plugs & wires. Front springs replaced on recall at dealership (by surprise, i'm 3rd owner! cool).

Air conditioning compressor catastrophic failure at 200,000 - not worth the cost of repair. pulley still spins fine so i didnt even touch it.

I oil change every 10,000kms, with cheap oil. I never wash her.

I think an engine mount is loose cuz the engine took a hard hit on a rock in a bumpy alley - makes a bit of noise in reverse.

I know its nearing end of life and i'm likely gonna get a 2005 with the duratec engine for reliability or a Toyauto Matrix, even though i feel the toyotas are over priced, making the ford a better value.

ZX3 with 133,000. I've owned it since 25,000. Only problems have been blower motor and tires. Tire rotation every 5,000 cured that. Replaced fuel filter last fall. Car is stock and is doing great! Except it stalled at idle a week ago.

I've owned a 2001 ZX3 S2 Zetec 5 spd since new and just reached the 200,000 mile mark. The timing belt was replaced about 20K ago and I just had to replace the intermediate pipe and muffler two weeks ago because the pipe cracked right at the muffler. Now I have a leak in the water pump housing to fix and a rough idle to check. It's been a great car to this point.

'04 wagon, 2.0 Zetec, automatic, company car (I own the company), 112,000 miles.
Repairs so far: Tensioner pulley and serpentine belt, cracked thermostat housing, motor mount, new shocks and struts. Otherwise just normal maintenance. Very trouble-free.

2000 SE DOHC 4-door 245,800 miles... trying to keep it alive

Refusing to let it die... all stock but 2nd motor about 2 years ago, having IAC issues currently. How do I tell what year motor (2000 thru 2004) the replacement might be? Can't find paperwork. Need to match up a new IAC.
