?on a mach

I'm still trying to work some kinks out on my end but at the same looking to trade my 10gt for a mach.unfortanatly I have to go by dealers cause of my loan.as I'm looking found a couple decent ones.found a 2004 comp orange,completely stock with 38k miles.my question is ive looked at the car fox carfax whatever the hell it is haha.i saw a note that the engine was replaced.now I'm sure the whoever had it was driver error.but if it wasnt and wasnt drivin hard is there any other reason why it would be replaced?any kind of recall or anything?again still have to work my kinks outs but might as well keep an eye on something just incase

If you can find out from the car facts where it was replaced give them a call. More then likely a dealer and if so they should have the info.

Well I didn't read hard enough but it said it was in an accident and was overturned in PA and I guess stuff was then checked out.guess wasnt a total loss but not going to take that chance.ill just keep an eye out for more machs and hopefully a good deal on a cobra.been seeing alot but with 75k or more

There are Recalls on Mach 1s with the driver side head issue ( ticking noise & dead cylinders ) ford did a tsb to replace them, usually marked with blue, or another way to tell is if spark plugs have 6-8 treads Vs 4 treads

Come on now

Ok how did your engine hydro lock? And the reason I did not know about the recall is I took my car to ford here in my home town and they did some work on it and I asked them to see if it had any recalls they said the 03 mach did but not the 04 so I don't think I'll trust that guy again lol
