Did you have advance warning?

I was driving a Capri (not mine) when it threw two rods. It sounded horrible, I should not have driven it. It ended up being a good thing in the long run after a lot of work (n/a to turbo conversion) But I had plenty of warning

Hello all, I have decided to sell my Capri.  I will be moving later this summer and own 6 cars... time to downsize. It is a very cherry prime example of an XR2 Turbo, you will not find another like this anytime soon.  Very fast and very fun, it is a blast to drive and is in great shape mechanically.  It was owned by one family and lived it's whole life in SoCal before I bought it, 135,000 miles. comes with about $5,000 in receipts over the last 5 years including a full top-end rebuild (complete head rebuild), reupholstered seats and new carpet, new convertible top, new clutch, tie-rods and much more all done about 15,000 miles ago.  I'll be asking $3,000 on craigslist but will take $2500 from a Team Capri member.  I will sell or keep driving over the summer until it's time to move.  PM me here or send email to my gmail account, reywdd@

The cruise/horn is one circuit that is feed power via the 20A STOP fuse and is separate from the panel illumination. The steering wheel cruise buttons receive 12V power from the horn relay signal wire when the horn is not in use.

The most common issue is the terminals on the horn relay (mounted on the side of the driverside headlight bucket) corrode away.

Ahh that's sucks man. Were you over-revving the engine? What caused it to shoot a rod? Atleast you have a Mazda derivative car, you could probably use the Sephia motor as a swap in you're next Capri if its a BP.
