Ford Falcon 1993: Interior light stuck on

Answered by CarsGuide 27 Jun 2014

The most likely cause is a switch that is not shutting off the power to the light. Most likely it is one of the switches in the door jams, so check them to make sure they are working by pushing them in and out and watching for the interior light to go on and off.

Ford Falcon 1993: High fuel consumption

Answered by CarsGuide 19 May 2011

Because it's too much on either fuel the problem is not related to one fuel system or the other. I would be having the oxygen sensor checked, it's the one that determines the mixture going into the engine and it would seem the engine is running too rich.

Falcon clunking the gears

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Sep 2007

CHECK the firewall, specifically the bracket that takes the clutch cable. It is known to break where it is welded to that panel because of flexing of the firewall. Even if it is cracked, the pedal can feel normal and have the correct free play, but because the bracket moves when you depress the pedal, the clutch doesn't throw out enough and will drag when you go to shift gears. If you find the bracket is cracked, a repair kit is available from Ford. It may also be that the clutch is dragging because it is worn.

Ford gremlins

Answered by CarsGuide 3 Jun 2004

FORD electrics, don't you love 'em? You are simply experiencing the sorts of electronic gremlins that a lot of Ford owners experience. If the Ford dealer believes the problem is fixed with what they have done, then fine. If the problem returns, have the computer checked, as this is often the cause of these sorts of problems. One day Ford might actually build some decent electrics into their cars, but then again . . .
