what other cars came out with the 2.3l 4 cylinder
A good read on the ford 2.3 Pinto and later 2.3 engines is at the link.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Pinto_engine My guess is that yours is the dual spark plug variety (2 spark plugs per cylinder). Used on Ford Rangers, Mustangs. Read the part about the "LL23" engine. The 2.3 was reliable and nearly indestructible.
