1993 Ford Telstar GLI 2.0L from Australia and New Zealand
Idle runs fast, then slow, and stalls on downshifts. The issue is the inlet manifold gasket.
Misfiring while driving or idle. The issue is the distributor is faulty; replace with a new one, and new leads and spark plugs.
Water pump replacement. The issue is the seals wear if the wrong coolant and ratio is used. But this is all because of old age and high km. It all costs about $1500.
Reliable when you maintain oil changes and flush the radiator system every 6 months.
Fit a K&N pod filter to the air intake, and you will increase the power by a lot, and get massive pull from 3500 RPM to 5800 RPM.
These cars just keep going and going.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
