Well first off im ashamed to say that i havent been on here in months. I graduated highschool june 6 and time has shot by. It seems like i hardly dont have time to do anything if it isnt college related. Anyway I have a 92 mustang thats just giving me more trouble than I believe its worth so im thinking of selling it and fixing up my old truck. The mustang gets 21 mpg but leaves me all the time and the diesel gets 16 mpg has left me one time in like 5 to 6 years but has 265000 miles on it!! So im kinda stuck. I really dont want to get rid of my mustang at all because its a very fun car to drive but I need something dependable for college. I really dont have enough money to go out and get a new truck or car but if i sold my stang I could fix my truck up some. What do yall think. The mustangs problems arent big they just seem to come up when you least need them to. If I sell the car what should I do to the truck within respect of the mileage. Sorry for the book just letting yall know where I stand.

Yea I know how it is. Diesel prices absolutely suck but breaking down all the time sucks to. I don't know what I'm going to do.

What keeps breaking on the stang? I've had my coupe for a few years now and it has only left me stranded twice. Once because my belt came off and the second because I blew up my rear end.

well two days after I bought it the distributor and starter messed up, after it was rebuilt for some reason the maf sensor quit working. On my way to Hilton Head last week the clutch cable broke while I was downshifting on the interstate. I ordered a new steeda clutch linkage with firewall adjuster and quandtrant. O and I didnt replace the clutch when I rebuild it two months ago and it went out last week also. The car has 208k on the body but everything under the hood is new. Everything else that isnt however seems to be failing. Now that im going off to college I need something a little more reliable. If i sell it i plan on putting a chip or programmer on my truck and some new mickey thompson rims. I love the car but its just been a headache lately.
