About to cry

By spazz

I have spent over 6 weeks trying to fix my ABS. I still don't know what is wrong with it and the last week has been like a roller coaster for me. I do something and think I found the problem. I get all excited and find out that it was not what was wrong. Then I do it all again. I am officially done with this problem. I have decided to take it to the shop and have them do the work. This is a big hit on my pride because I have never been forced to pay someone els to do my work. I think it will be OK this one time. I found a guy that knows what he is talking about and loves the Thunderbird SC modal. He works at the Ford dealer so I will get the car fixed but the cost is going to be up in the clouds.

Bottom line. I am going to suck it up and pay the shop. I should have stuck to the older cars. They were so easy to work on.

The early ABS systems were very sencitive to fluid breakdown. Often times the system would need to be regularly power purged to prevent component failure. Some repairs were known to hit four didget figures. Same as with early standard stick slave cylinders, once the resivoir was opened and exposed to air, the fluids began to break down quickly. I wouldn't feel bad about your eforts. You did the best you can with what you had.
