1991 Ford Capri from North America
I like the car because with its relatively small engine, it is peppy and economical on gas
My Capri had not been used for approximately 8 months. The gas tank had to be removed and replaced with a rust free one, and a new fuel pump.
The computer was bad and replaced with a used one.
Brakes were locked up from sitting, and we used a "C" clamp to push the brake pistons back to free the wheels to turn.
Alternator is apparently bad, and I have it off the engine, but am having trouble getting it out of the engine compartment. Not enough room!
I could not get the top down until I read several answers on how to do it. I release the top at the front by opening the two hold down handles, then lift front of the top slightly with left hand and push the rear of the top back toward the trunk until it slides out of the groove that retains it. Raise the section, the one with the window, up and lay it on the rearmost bow.
Open the storage compartment lid, using the lower release on the drivers door post. Open the storage cover all the way. Lower the top window into the storage compartment, and the rest of the top, until its almost in. IT WON'T GO ALL THE WAY DOWN UNTIL YOU MOVE THE ROUND TOP BOW CLOSEST TO THE FRONT OF THE CAR TO THE REAR!!! THE TOP CAN THEN BE LOWERED THE REST OF THE WAY INTO THE STORAGE COMPARTMENT. The secret is moving that front top bow to the rear. Then close the storage compartment lid and you're done.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
