New 1/30/04

1997 Toreador Red Ford Taurus SHO,

Vehicle History: only major repairs/service include replacement of ignition coil, replacement of alternator twice (one rebuilt, second Motorcraft new), replacement of ABS sensor, 100,000 mile tune up & fuel injector purge (at Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln Mercury, Adrian, MI), replacement of all SARC struts with Motorcraft brand SARC struts, and cams welded at 160,000 miles at Ray's Auto Repair & Performance in Warren, MI on 1/29/2004 (recommended by the V8SHO website) Noise was very loud, same noise as heard on the website, and tech at shop said they were ready to go any minute. Had to have it towed in because it is over 100 miles from my home and didn't want to risk driving it there, which I was told it would have not made it.
