This will be a running account of the life and times of living with a 1998 Tropic Green Contour SE Sport w/ 2.5 and MTX with 135,000 on the clock.
A little back ground.
I bought the car for transportation in Oct. of 2004 because my 1991 Dakota was spending more time in the transmission shop than it was on the road. The second day I drove it the water pump died, as I've come to find out this is not uncommon. So now it has the steel impeller water pump. The next thing that was done was the install of the right spark plugs(Motor Craft) and a set of Ford Motor Sports 9mm wires (Red). For several months the car ran fine and I had no problems with it, except that the front window cracked as I was leaving work one cold January night. Next to get replaced was the cabin filter. Well in June I believe it was I started getting a clunking noise when I shifted and the shifter itself was binding up and felt stiff. Took it to a shop and was told that it was the clutch, and it was going to be about $1,400 to fix it. I was not going to spend that much on the car so I put it up for sale. Well the only buyers I got were from overseas and all scams (About 15 in all). So the car sat most of the summer. I finally talked to a friend of mine that works at a garage, he drove it and told me it was not the clutch but the motor mounts. So I bought a SVT front mount with inserts from BAT., and a rear SVT mount from the local Ford dealer. Took me about 1.5 hours to change them out. What a difference that made. No more clunking and the shifter is as smooth as glass.
If I ever figure out how to post pics I will.

MaddMike1 Clean that sucker

Email this entry | Print this entry Apr 24 2006, 09:19 PM

Well I decided to clean the UIM, LIM, MAF and TB since I wanted to change the front motor mount and the P/S pump any way I figured I would make a weekend of it(turned into a week LOL). Well I broke an EGR bolt(the one closest to the TB and in the process of getting it out broke the manifold)its fixed and does not leak. The two lines on top of the UIM broke getting them out(who ever worked on the car before epoxied them in) so it was call Ford again and wait for parts. The connectors that hold the lines in the UIM is called a Connector p# F5RZ-2A411-A $10.95. These things are a pain to get out, I used a 6in drift punch through the TB opening and a ball peen to drive them out. The line to the Brake Power Booster is F5RZ-2420-AE $23.53, The second line is called a vacuum manifold F6RZ-9E498-AD $34.07, The EGR bolts are p#W701625-S431 $7.82 pack of 2. I also got the IAC gasket from Ford p#E83Z-9F670-A $1.05. The Upper and Lower manifold, TB and EGR I got from Fel-Pro.

All the intake bolts are 8mm, TB and P/S pump 10mm, pressure line to P/S 18mm, Motor mount upper bracket 4 nuts 18mm, mount top bolt 18mm, mount to fender well three bolts 15mm.

It took me 15 cans of Berrymans to clean everything(I would take them to a shop for cleaning next time).

The car runs better and the butt Dyno says it makes more power but I will see for sure after ther real dyno run tomorrow.
