1994 Ford Mustang GT Cobra 5.0 from North America
A stallion like no other!
- Leaks oil from the crankshaft seal.
- Radiator cracked & started leaking coolant.
- Airbag light recently stopped coming on, and now the car emits audible tones while driving. (horn also stopped working).
This is my second 94 Mustang. I had one back in '05 when I was in college, but it was the 3.8L V6. I got that one with 123000 miles on the dash, and by 130000 the automatic transmission had been rebuilt, and the passenger side head gasket started leaking.
I love this bodystyle of the Mustang, and even though the first one I had gave me problems, I loved the way it looked and the possible mods that you can do to it.
So when I came across an older guy selling a 94 5.0 with a 5 speed with only 67xxx original miles, I jumped all over it. And already within the first one thousand miles it's given me typical problems that help it live up to the FORD phrase Found On Road Dead. Granted the car sat a lot so I'm not too mad about the radiator or the crankshaft seal, but the airbag thing really upset me because it's so random.
I still own my 2000 Ford Crown Vic Police Interceptor with the modular 4.6 in it, and that thing picks up and goes. But the 5.0 is a motor that FORD got right; its performance and durability is second to none. This car will soon be a collectors edition, and it will be garage kept for years to come.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
