Bad brakes.

What year Stang? It's very unlikely the ABS!  To be sure, with the ignition off, disconnect one of the wheel sensors.  This will light up the ABS light and disable the ABS. Another problem could be the TIRES!  For just about ALL ABS systems, ALL FOURS TIRES MUST BE 100% EXACTLY THE SA...

Freeze plug removal

When they put stuff in HOT liquid that strip off ALL the gunk and everything else.  It eats away just about everthing except metal.

3100 overheating and heater not working

Beware though, you MUST replace the head bolts when changing then heads.

I got mine from Advance Auto.  They where pretty cheap and a brand name.

My beretta is turning into a swimming pool..

Check prices for windsheilds!  They cary a lot around here.  From the problem I had with my Ford, it wasn't much more (~$40) for them to put in a new windsheild.  Plus, there is a lot less chance that it will leak with a new windsheild.  They would have to clean the old windsheil...

Good winter tires

Some other notes if you are talking about *real snow tires*: o  Since they should not be used in the summer (unless you want them to be useless the next winter) and tire should not be taken off/on rims multiple times, you should (really must) have a set of rims for the winter tires. o  If ...

Would they fit?

Quote (Dustbunnie @ Oct. 03 2002,5:06)I shipped my Z26 rims for a total of less than $50, that was probably right at 100 lbs Yea, it depends a lot on rim weight and the distance.  It's cheaper to ship two packages -"one package at 60 lbs and one package at 20lbs", then to ship 4 separate packag...

Would they fit?

Do you know how much shipping costs?  For a rim ONLY, it's $25->$40 PER RIM.  For a rim and tire it will depend a lot on how far away you are.  Figure a *min* of $30 per tire/rim.  Up to $60 per tire/rim.  I laugh when people buy/sell stang "10 hole" rims on ebay.  You ...

Head liner

In my dad's Cutlass, just *touching* the foam would make it crumble.  In my 2 Old's, and a friend's Chevy, the foam looked and felt fine.  It's just that the fabric came loose.

Head liner

Yup.  Like Eric said, once the Foam starts to *crumble*, it's just about hopeless.  That's what happened to my Dad's Cutlass.  On my both my Olds, the headliner just came loose from the glue.  Try the glue first.  Nothing really to loose by trying (except ~$2->5 for spray ad...
