just keep the fluids changed regularly and keep up with maintence and you should be ok and the head gasket seems to happen out of the blue so i would be concerned about ti but not worried just make sure you keep the fluids clean and you should be ok...most problems show up right after coolant flushes and replacing the headgasket isn't that difficult if you have some tools and a free wekend it can be done pretty easy by most people....so just don't beat on it and you should be ok....remember there closely realated to the 5.0 so they such pretty much run forever....and as a side note i would be much more concerned about the tranny since the 3.8 puts out alot of torque and the axod's like to implode alot when coupled with the 3.8 so i would check the trany fluid and maybe even change it and add a tranny cooler just to be safe

I've spent more money, time, and blood on this car then i care to even dream of and it's still only worth 500 bucks.Why in hell do i keep doing it? AHH that's right, for the look at the kids face in a mustang who got beat by a 13 year taurus. It makes it all worth it in the end. Now who wants to buy it.....lol
