Wish my buddy could find something like this. He had to retire his classic 96 Escort wagon due to transmission problems and it's been dead end search after dead end search finding him a new ride. Been looking at Gran'pa Buicks and Mercurys now.

The stock suspension on this car sucked. I think it was a junk aftermarket oe replacement. This eibach kit really makes it ride like a hatchback. Got rid of the 4x4 gap and these tires filled it in even more. It's a lot more enjoyable to drive.

found a $500 gem



2005 Outback. Fully loaded, leather, heated seats, momo wheel, moonroof. Has a 6 cylinder with 5 speed automatic. every bell and whistle of that model lol.

Cleaned out garage to make room for this guy.


This is why it was $500 lolol


IDK how the F they did that. going to try to extract it, but the porcelain makes me nervous. Either way, it should be fine. engine makes no noise minus the misfire so that's good.

I've had good luck with the broken plug extractor tool for the Ford Triton motors, that would be a steal if you could repair it that easily

I was actually thinking about that. and yeah it would be. Tires are brand new and some things I could easily sell to make my $500 back if I want to bail.

People are saying to use Square Cut Easy Outs. Maybe I can try that instead of the tool.

I'll let you know when I fix it all up

The plug was IN THERE. I drilled the porcelain out (forced air into cylinder via brake booster line on intake to keep **** out of engine) and nothing got inside of the engine thankfully. EZ out wouldn't budge the plug, so I ended up drilling out the plug with a 31/64 drill bit. Threads still there. Unfortunately, the ground strap for the plug was stuck on the end with some of the threads left, so I tried using a pick to get it out and it fell into the cylinder currently trying to fish it out

drilled out the plug, some threads fell into the cylinder. Tried fishing it out but couldn't get it. ended up crushing it with the piston by turning crank via a wrench lol.

car runs now. issue with a coil pack that has a broken tab, so replacing that. $500 car ftw!
