It's not uncommon to have problems with the electric windows on Falcons. Get an auto electrician to have a look at it; it's probably a motor in a door.

Ford Falcon 2001: Water in boot

Answered by CarsGuide 3 May 2012

If it's not getting into the boot directly it would seem to confirm that the boot seal is doing its job. In that case look for openings in the boot lid itself, outside the rubber seal that are exposed to the elements. They should be sealed, so perhaps the sealing is damaged.

Ford Falcon 2001: How often should I run on gas?

Answered by CarsGuide 26 Jan 2012

It is good practice to run approximately 20 litres of petrol per month to keep the petrol volatile. The reason it's recommended you maintain a quarter of a tank of petrol is to protect the fuel system components such as the petrol pump, which may remain active during operation on LPG.

Series 3 Falcon wagon brakes

Answered by CarsGuide 8 Dec 2011

Getting 103,000 km out of a set of pads is quite remarkable, and probably due to the car being used in the bush without the stop-start traffic. It's quite normal today to be replacing pads every 50,000 km or so and replacing discs every second pad change. Country cars can be good buys because of the less stressful life they tend to lead. There is no replacement time set down for cat converters, when they go they tend to collapse internally, and when it happened to a car of mine a while back it
blocked the exhaust and brought the car to a halt.
