Would anybody help me find a way to determine the manufacturing date( day and a month) of the vehicle that I purchased. There is no sticker in the car.I have a VIN # of the car.I can not find a dealership either where the car was first bought. What should I do?Thanks.

daniel29, I think our Smart Shopper conference would be the best place to ask your question. Why not use our Topic Search on the left menu bar, perhaps with VIN as your key word, and see if this topic is already underway?

91 Escort with 177000 miles on it. Starter went out at 175000. Have had timing belt replaced every 60k. Been a very reliable car for me.

Is there a faq or web site about Escort I can find on the net? I like to see the problems and solutions on '91 Escort we just got.
#7 of 58 Windows hard to roll up

I have a 91 Escort GT (2 doors) with 115,000 miles. Even when the car was new, I had trouble rolling the windows up. I've tried cleaning & greasing the window weather stripping but the problem always returns after it rains or after I wash the car. I've tried several different types of lubricants. Does anyone else have this problem, or have a solution?
