1984 Ford LTD FD 4.1 electronic fuel injection
Exellent car, good for long distance driving
The car came with a brand new cylinder head on it and required the fuel injection system and inlet manifold to be assembled and refitted to the motor.
I have assembled the fuel injection system and inlet manifold and has been refitted to the motor, but it does not get driven very far. It is being stored in the garage because I have a newer car that I use as the LTD drinks a lot of fuel, it gets started each week and is run for five minutes.
The only problems that I've had are:
Fuel injection system had problems, taken to mechanic and told that it's a common fault. The fault has been fixed, leaking vacuum hose from rocker cover to inlet manifold.
Sunroof leaking when raining, now fixed.
Rust in boot and quarter panels, repaired.
I would buy another car from this manufacturer, but the next car will be another LTD or a fairlane, but a later model.
The car is very comfortable.
However it drinks a lot of fuel.
Fuel injection system not the best and not very reliable.
Look nice when lowered.
Light power steering.
Large amouut of leg room in the back.
However is is common for this model to get rust in the boot and quarter panels.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
