Splash guard has come loose

My splash guard has come loose and is dragging. Is it absolutely necessary to replace it on such an old vehicle?

Need more information - are you referring to the inner fender splash shield? The engine splash shield?

The replacement part is very inexpensive - less than $25.00

Replace a broken or missing spoiler and under-engine splash guards. The plastic air dam (aka "spoiler") that's broken or missing wasn't just for looks. It actually served a purpose; it forces air up and over the hood to help your car cut through the air with less drag. The under-engine splash guards help reduce aerodynamic drag too by keeping the air flowing smoothly under your car instead of producing turbulence that causes drag. Contact a junkyard to find a replacement air dam and engine splash guards.
