I havent done very much digging into the car so I am just pulling at straws but I have a feeling something isnt quite right with my car. I purchased a 2002 Mustang
GT on CL a couple weeks ago. The car has a salvage title, and was totaled because of body damage. I purchased it from someone who was sitting on it for two years and then decided it was too much of a project. I am pretty sure the car hasn't been driven in at least 3-4 years.
With that being said it fires right up, there are no check engine
lights and the motor purrs like a kitten. There is an awful lot of moisture coming out of the exhaust though. Could this be a combination of crap built up in the exhaust and gas that is over three years old? There isnt any coolant in the oil and I dont see the overflow going down. I need to fix the car before I can register it and really drive it.
Yes....I know... compression/leak down test but that scares me with these engines. This is my second Ford, my first being a P71 Crown Vic, and I knew well enough that when I was attempting to change the plugs when one didnt want to come out, I just left it alone. I really dont want to be blowing out all of the spark plugs in this thing and creating another job for myself.
