I have a 1995 manual 5-speed Ford Mustang and I was wondering how I could make it overall faster for cheap? By cheap I mean less than $400 a part.

Laura asks…

What year was this first ford mustang was shown to the public and what year did it come out?

As the launch of the Ford Mustang approached, Ford was confident its new sporty car was on target. Its job now was to let the country know about this new kind of car. The introduction of what popularly would be known as the Ford Mustang was an encompassing and brilliant marketing blitz. America had scarcely seen anything like it.

Ford galaxy the indicators don’t work an the heater controls keeps flashing whats wrong an how can i fix it?

i have a ford galaxy 7 seater car every thing else in it is working except having no indicators an heating controls..great advice would be grateful.

Sitatara answers:

I can’t answer your question but, having owned Galaxy / Sharan for many years, I can tell you the electrics on these cars are really complex, nothing is really what it seems. The first thing to do is to get it hooked up to a diagnostic machine to see if any faults are registered. Once you’ve got that out of the way then I’m afraid it’s off to the auto electrician. Stay away from the main dealers, in my experience they’re useless. It is possible you have two unrelated problems, but I suspect it’s something weird, sorry I can’t be more help.

Carol asks…

What can i do about my Ford Escort Alternator malfunction?

About 4 weeks ago, I bought a 1999 Ford Escort that was in great shape, and it has been great on mileage and nning in general. All of sudden, over the last couple of days, my car has been stopping wheniever i hit the brake, and the battery signal lights up, and i understand this as the battery life being drained. I would like to know, is there anything that I can do to make my alternator function better?
Am i not allowed to drive it until i get it replaced?
If i can drive it, tips on how to drive safe with it?
Thanks a lot.

Sitatara answers:

WHEN EVER YOU APPLY BRAKE IT STOPS

CALL YOUR MECHANIC TO CHECK WHETHER ALL THE SPARK PLUGS ARE FUNCTIONING PROPERLY.

IF THERE IS ANY OIL ON THEM THE IGNITION WILL BE INCOMPLETE THERBY RESULTING IN LESS POWER AND CONSISTENCY IN POWER DELIVERY

IF IT IS OK

CHECK IF THE CARBON BRUSHES OF THE DYNAMO ARE OK IT NEEDS TO BE FEQUENTLY REPLACED AND IF IT IS NOT OK ELECTRICITY GENERATED WILL NOT BE PASSED IN THE CIRCUITS

THE CONNECTIONS ARE NOT LOOSE.

AND ALSO CHECK IF THE FUSE BOX IS OK N IN SHAPE

IF ALL THESE STEPS DO NOT PROVE TO BE A REMEDY DO WHAT YOUR MECHANIC SAYS

BUT BE SURE TO CHECK IT STEP BY STEP BEFORE DOING ANY MAJOR WORK FOR THE MECHANIC MAY NOT BE THAT CAREFUL.

USUALLY THE MECHANICS DO NOT TELL US ABOUT THE MINOR BODY WORKS THEY JUST SAY US TO CHANGE THE PARTS WHICH MAY BE REUSED IF TRIED TO BUT DONT SAY THAT IN FRONT OF ANYONE FOR U HAVE TO GET UR WORK DONE PROPERLY
