I have the exact same car with automatic trans. 17 years of ownership. Sweet deal. Here is what you need to know. The rubber boots on the vacuum line from the throttle body to the back of the engine are weak and crack leaving you with a rough running engine. Also under the engine cover you will see a "T" hose going back into the intake manifold before the throttle body. Go the the Depot or Lowes and get a new copper "T" found in the plumbing and some 1/4" gas line, replace that thin crap ford vacuum lines on the "T" that go to the valve covers. Keep an eye on antifreeze loss. The hose above the thermostat has a pressed seam that likes to come apart and you will overheat quickly. After 17 years I've had every failure there is, in this car. Shoot me a message if you need help.
