1988 Ford Aerostar XLT 3.0 from North America
Good old blue
Catalytic converter, ignition switch, and fuel pump.
Bought this Aerostar at this Ma & Pop dealer in April 2007 in Los Angeles Cali for 900. I tried to drive it back to the hotel I was staying at my wife. She following me in our Celica. The blinker or tail lights weren't working in the van.
I got blinker working that night, and drove it back to Los Banos the next day. It is 300 and some on miles. We made it no problem.
I drove it to work the next day. 40 miles one way. Went to go home after work, and it started right up back up. It would not go in drive. I stepped on the gas several times, and it lurched forward and took off. Drove it all the way home. Tranny shifting was fine.
It would act up in the mornings. Not wanting go in drive until you stepped on the gas a few times. Had the tranny serviced; it's been fine since!
It's now 2012, and the star still going. It's my wife's school car now. I have a Bronco. That's my toy.
This van has been to Vegas, San Francisco, and Yuba City. It's just a good old reliable Ford. Please remember, not all Fords are bad!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
