About six months ago, I was the proud owner of a bright red 2002 V6 Mustang. I knew she wasn't the fastest or most glamorous car on the roads, but she was a nice little car, and I enjoyed driving her very much. Over the last six months however she has fallen in to a sad state of disrepair.
-The bumper is cracked and broken due to a fender bender.
-The left head light will only go on when the high beams are switched on, and they are choosy about when they want to work and not work.
-The digital odometer flickers on and off.
-While idling the RPM's dip to 500 and the who le car shakes violently.
-The windshield sprayers are not working.
-The passenger door is in need of a new handle after the current one was smashed up in a parking lot by a hit and run, leaving the door and rear fender damaged.
-And the front passenger inner fender fell of a few months ago leaving a ,clear passage for tons of debris and dirt to get all struck up inter.
Basically my problem is I have very limited knowledge of cars, and I don't whatnot even consider buying a second vehicle until this one is back to its former glory.
I think that the reason the odometer might not work is because of a fuse that is on its last legs.
I think the RPM's may be dipping because of a dirt air filter, and the lights may have issues because of a, loose wire.
I plan to get a new handle from Ford, a new bumper from Americanmuscle.com and allof the paint and bodywork done in the summer.
At the moment my main concerns are getting the vehicle in working order.
So I was wondering what advice you guys can give me for fixing the odometer problem, the lights, windshield sprayers and RPM issue.
I really love this car and realize how bad I have treated it over the last few months, and considering how great of a vehicle it has been I am disgusted with my treatment and have seen the error of my ways. I want to make it up to the car and get it looking and working great again by June.
All help is appreciated.
