Default Any auto mechanics? Question.

Anyone know of any recalls for the 1996 Mustang? I talked to a woman whose Mustang had a recall due to failure of the timing cover. Seems some of the 3.8 litre V-6 were prone to cracks. My son has one exactly like hers and she claims it was repaired after cracking and she received a recall notice soon after notifying her of possible failures.

There have been 3 recalls on the '96 Mustang. one is on the hood seperating, one is on the parking brake, and the 3rd is on... I forgot, but it wasn't the timing cover. www.nhtsa.dot.gov .
If there has been one and wasn't on this list, and you had it repaired then a recall came out you get a refund of the money you paid. Thats what happened with my Camaro in the 80's. 6 months after repairing my seatbelt there was a recall on that type of problem, I filled out a form and got a refund.

Forget the NHTSA site, their info is vague. Your best bet ids to go to
http://www.alldata.com/recalls/index.html

This is the place most auto shops get their info. You can get the TSB titlss for free, but must pay a subscriber fee for the full text.

Or you can post the problem on this website

http://www.batauto.com/cgi-bin/Forum...name=domestics

If you post here in detail as to your problem, they can get the full text of the TSB and post a reply.

Any others with auto problems, this Batauto site is the best. Good Luck

Cougar, what was the drivetrain warranty on the car. It might be covered under that which may be on the verge of running out.

Anyone have thoughts on choosing an auto mechanics program available in Atlanta. I want to do some online courses for my professional knowledge so I tried making contact with auto body or auto mechanics shop for internship but they asked me to do a certification course before offering job.
