Question about 1989 Ford Escort

1 Answer

Too much camber, 89 Ford Escort GT. When I drive forward the camber increases, backwards the camber decreases. This happened after I replaced controls arms, front bearings and general cleaning and painting of suspension parts. Could this be a problem with the stabilizer bar, and is it possible to install stabilizer bar upside down?,,,

Sounds like an alignment problem. You need sensitive laser equipment to figure out exactly what is wrong. Normally, you cannot install these type of parts upside down or other items may not fit right.

I have a 1999 escort that the battery light is blinking when you rev the engine...all parts check ok, it only does it when you rev it fast , regular driving and easy take off it does not blink

Put a volt meter on the battery, and rev the engine until the light blinks, do not hold it there, just reach that engine speed breifly, watch the meter, does the voltage increase or decrease? If it does then your voltage regulator may be going bad, the regulator is inside the altenator, which may require replacement. It can be related to a wire that is broken or partially broken, so wiggle the wires at the altenator and battery while the engine is running at idle and conducting this test. Hope this helps, let me know

'89 Tbird Clock

I believe that if you HOLD DOWN the "clock" button and press "seek" for minutes and "tune" for hours you should be able to reset your clock. Remember that if you press the + "seek" you will increase the minutes and if you press the - "seek" you will decrease the minutes. The same for "tune". The left will decrease and the right will increase hours. If this doesn't work, there is something wrong with the contacts behind these buttons, or some other problem.
Good luck.
