Yeah, with some of the problems I've had with my 94 Eagle Vision esi, I can understand why I don't see to many of them around. I was beginning to think that they've all been melted down and made into pots and pans.
Good to see some Eagle owners.
I've had the Eagle parked for periods of time in the last couple or three years. That ignition switch deal threw me for awhile as the fuel pump wasn't coming up when the key was turned to start the car. New switch cured it. I was thinking it was the pump till I pulled the carpet out and put the VOM on the pump connections.
So, I came up with a little system I'll have to take some photos of and post for your enjoyment.
Then there was that transmission input sensor that went out on me as I was driving down the road. Took awhile to get a tip on those sensors. One transmission shop was assuring me that I'd have to spend a few thousand bucks to get it overhauled. Well I was born in the morning, but it wasn't yesterday morning. So I took my time and found I could fix it for less than $20 bucks with a new input sensor.
My first problem with this car was leakage at the transmission lines to the radiator. The crimped to the rubber lines leaked badly. I purchased brass compression couplings at the hardware store and a 3/8 steel brake line that was about 1 foot long. I took a thin blade grinder and cut the steel lines at the crimp caps. Next cut the 3/8 steel lines so I had a couple of 2" pieces of tube with no flare. Tightened them into one end of the coupling so they wouldn't leak. Using stainless steel adjustable clamps I inserted the 3/8 tubing into the rubber tubing that went to the radiator and tightened them. Next the ends of the tubing coming from the transmission was wiped out with Qtips to get any grit or filings out and sand papered to remove any burrs. When all looked good I inserted the hoses with the brass compression couplings onto the tubes and tightened them down good. The fix was less than $8 bucks where they wanted $55 bucks for new lines and more of the same misery. So far it's been little things like this.
But I'm going on 16 years with this vehicle and I do like the way it looks and runs yet.
Hopefully I'll drive it 20 years and sell it for an antique.
I should make a list of all the things I've done to it since I bought it new.
