The listing of cracked manifolds doesn't include my 1996 Mustang GT. When it cracked, the radiator shop told me that they had replaced several recently, and I thought that might make it eligible for a TSB. My selling dealer found it for me, but the dealer in the city where I happened to be said that there was no TSB covering my vehicle. I had to give him the TSB number before they would do the $960 job for free.
Then they wanted to charge me for the missing serpentine belt. I refused, saying there was certainly a belt there before the manifold cracked, that it must have popped off. I offered to pay for the belt, but refused to pay the flat rate labor, since the car was already being worked on. It got down to an ultimatum. I told them to push the car out into the street, and I would put my own belt on, that I was going to buy at Kragen.

Something to note, one of the cruise control switches they talk about was in my 1993 SHO. It burned out most of the wiring, I guess I got lucky though. It blew out the fuses. I ended up taking the car to a car electrical shop just to get it repaired. 450$ later, they had replaced a lot of the wires. I kept smelling burning but could not place it. I later had a problem with the brakes fluid leaking and the switch was replaced. That's when we discovered the condition of the switch and realize this must be what cause the problem to start with. Now I have good electronics, but alas the cruise control is fried, and my radio acts funny. I guess I'll have to replace it soon to. This really sucks because I love driving my SHO.
