Thanks for the tips I did put it on the lift to check wheel bearings and for dragging brakes all was well.
I can get 50+ in my festiva with 1.6 mercury capri / mazda miata engine swap . But I don't want it to be eaten this winter with salt so I'm trying to improve the mpg of this taurus. I hear it's very areo dynamic as is but this 3.0 duratec must be very inefficient.
Any advice on costing? The converter stays locked and it seems to cost for ever but it doesn't seem to help much on mpg. I've tried shifting to nutral but the rpm jump up to the 3.5 to 4 k mark and hang there and slowly drop with my speed.
