1998 Mustang GT Dealership Recalls

I just printed up the recalls on the 98's all models and I was wondering which of the recalls are still in? Thanks

probably none of them. which ones are there? i can just think of a few off the top of my head, main ones being the cruise control cable that gets stuck, the intake manifold, and the transmission popping out of gear. i know for a fact that the tranny and the manifold are over, you cant do anything about them aside from replace them youself.
oh, and isnt there one regarding the e-brake?

ok i see 3 recalls and the rest are TSBs. As far as i know, you can always go in and get your recall performed, since it is a safety concern. As far as TSBs go, they expire, but you can usually still get parts for them, you will just have to buy them.

Why drive a Prius when you can have a Fiesta!!

I know for a fact that the intake manifold recall is over I had to buy the part myself and install it myself. Only $190.00 though.

Chrome Yellow 1998 Mustang GT, K&N intake, 3.73 gears, PI intake, t-3650 trans, Mcleod super street pro clutch, Hurst billitt shifter, Bilstein shocks/struts.
(Loaded PI heads sitting in my garage for when I have free time )
(forged short-block in progress)

yup, but since you are gonna have to replace it (for those who havent already), i would suggest you guys get the PI intake. has the aluminum crossover and will give you a few extra ponies

if you keep the car n/a, and unless its the FRPP aluminum intake, or the bullitt intake, you will be wasting your money. as for the valve covers, i have a friend locally selling some, PM me if you want more info

Most of those recalls are stupid.

"Your carpet MIGHT get stuck over the accelerator and cause you to crash"
People's FEET cause that more than the carpet does. Let's recall idiots!!

"Your fuel rail might get hot"
I don't know about you, but if I touch mine after turning off the engine, it isn't exactly frosty and refreshing...

"Your weatherstripping might crack" It does that? LIEK OMG!!! We're all gonna die!!!

"Your handle might loosen over time" Metal degrades with constant use? Geez you learn something new everyday!

"Wires might fray and cause electrical fires" THEY DO THAT?

"Cruise control unit might cause a fire" ALL I DID WAS PRESS COAST!!!

Stupid crap that happened to one idiot who spilled coffee on electronics and blamed it on faulty craftsmanship. Idiots. Idiotproof something and the world produced better idiots.

i wish we could recall idiots. the world would be a better and less crowded place. but the carpet getting stuck under accelerator is not something to brush aside. most people panic when that happens and forget that there is a brake pedal right next to it. most the time its no big deal, they dont hurt anyone, but what if you are coasting on the freeway and the traffic in front of you abruptly comes to a stop, and you remove your foot from the gas and hit the brakes, but your car takes longer than normal to stop? the cause of the accident: pedal got stuck on carpet. who's fault/liability? Ford. ford would rather replace a $200 pedal assembly than pay $20,000 in repairs and hospital bills per car.

hotter than normal, causing the vapors inside it to ignite and cause a small little fire with direct access to your gas tank. no harm there, of course.

on a 2 yr old car, water better not get into it and ruin the carpet/door panels/seats. better to replace $100 worth of weather stripping than the back seats, carpet, or any wiring that gets wet (which of course would never cause a fire hazard). my friend has bad/cracked weather stripping in his '89 240sx, and everytime it rains, it literally becoms a pool in his hatch. a good 2-3" of water, which after awhile stinks

door handles are made of harded plastic. what happens if you are stuck in your car, upside down in a river somewhere, and a broken door handle is the only thing keeping you from being able to open your door to swim to safety? assume all other windows are blocked by rocks or whatever.

maybe so, but ive pulled apart those switches and they have a rubber cover thats supposed to prevent water from getting in there. granted i think you are 100% right on this one, if the idiot hadnt had the coffee spill all over the place, the water (coffee) would never have gotten to the controls. one more example of the way this country is going to hell in a hand basket. we all remember that lady that spilled her HOT COFFEE and then successfully sued McDonalds for it, right?
