Ford Escort LX 1995 126000 miles
The car was leaking, what seemed to me to be coolent, but didn't fix it. Yes, typical female who does not know too much about cars. Just the basics. Anyway.I kept refilling the coolent and left it. Last time I had the oil changed, the guys made a note "leaking from all over." My husband thoroughly enjoys making fun of me about it. He wants me to get a new car. I am attached to the booger (ugly green color). Sooooo. As of lately, when the car is idleing, it smells REALLY bad in the car. The smell of exhaust is so strong when I stop at a light or stop sign, etc, that I have been driving with my windows cracked and getting sleepy. I replaces the entire muffle/exhaust system about three years ago; however, I do live in WI with the snow/salt. The car has gotten slightly louder, but not even comparable to my past muffler experiences. Any suggestions? Do I repair my BOOG, or succumb to my husband and buy a new car? :Shock:
have the same problem?
