1991 Ford Corsair GL 2.0
Another 23 years should be no problem
Generally, this car has been very good for a 23 year old car. CV joint went on it, but only $75 for the axle. Most annoying thing was gear stick rattle. It took me forever to isolate the source, and it turned out to be an extra large gap directly under the heat shield. I added a washer and greased it all up, and the problem was solved.
Never use Bosch plugs on it, even though the factory wires are Bosch. Always use NGK and it will idle smoothly.
Twice I have had to replace the Vehicle Speed Sensor.
Just service it every 5000km and all should be good.
Boring, unexciting and kinda looks like a miniature EA Falcon. These cars should be great value, as most owners were old dudes.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

And here it is in 2016 and Repco and Sprint Auto don't even have the VSS listed.
Nisswreck didn't want to know me either!
It isn't in the Gregory's Manual either.
So could you please tell me where you got your two new ones?
And where it is located?

The speed sensor is at the rear of the transmission. I picked up sensors from U-Pull-It wreckers.
The car is still running and zero problems with it. I park my new car and drive this Corsair around town as it is an old school car that is fun to drive.
