ENGINE

10/11/2017 - GLENS FALLS, NY
VEHICLE STALLED. TRIED TO RESTART IT, WOULD NOT FIRE UP. IT THEN CAUGHT ON FIRE ON THE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY (I-87N, EXIT 17/MOREAU) VEHICLE WAS IN GOOD WORKING ORDER, NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT OR OTHER INDICATION OF TROUBLE, TEMPERATURE GAUGE NEVER SHOWED ANY PROBLEM. NOT SURE IF THIS IS RELATED TO OTHER FORD ENGINE FIRES (DUE TO OVERHEATING/LOSS OF COOLANT) OR WHAT EXACTLY CAUSED IT. INSURANCE DID NOT DO AN INSPECTION (I OWNED THE CAR OUTRIGHT AND ONLY HAD LIABILITY COVERAGE) AND FORD TOTALLY BLEW ME OFF. HAVE PICTURES, BUT THEY LOOK LIKE ANY OTHER CAR WITH AN ENGINE FIRE.
