well, whatever this is, whether it be coincidence or not, has definitely gotten worse with the rain.

The timing belt is the primary failure point of the Zetec engine, it cannot be ignored. If you have over 60k on the original belt I would highly recommend that you replace it along with the other belt components.

I drive through SC fairly often so I could help you with changing the belt if you need some help.

'Preciate it. And it just tripped 43k miles. But I should probably still change it soon anyway.
