1993 Crown Victoria Engine Malfunction

I purchased a 1993 Crown Vic with 281 4.6L.
It has been sitting for 2 years. It starts
great and makes no noises in engine at all.
When it warms up the oil light comes on and the
lifters start chattering. What are the chances
the oil pick-up screen has hardened and not
letting oil come thru????

My headlights, tailights, marker lights, horn and electric seat controls, all went out. Other electrical systems seem to be working. I replaced fuses, the headlamp switch and the steering column-turn signal module. No help.

1992 Crown Victoria Chassis, Suspension & Steering Making Noise

Rotors are grinding a groove in the brake housing, could this be the bearings are bad, the hub feels tight, already changed pads and rotors.

1998 Crown Victoria Chassis, Suspension & Steering Making Noise

My car makes a horrible squeeking sound when turning left. It sounds like a door hinge that needs oiled but it is a lot louder. It makes a little noise when turning right, but it is very loud when turning left. It also appears to make the same noise when I push down on the front end of the cat. It makes no difference if I am sitting still or moving and speed makes no difference either. What do you think the problem is?

1988 Crown Victoria Heating & Cooling System Won't Start

The blower for the heater and ac does not work. It started out as an intermittent problem now it never works.
I have replaced the thermal limiter and the blower switch. The grounds are good [at least the ones I can find].
This car has the automatic climate control so I'm wondering if there is a thermostat or sensor. My Haynes manual [not worth the paper it is printed on compared to Chilton] does not show it.

1997 Crown Victoria Engine Hesitating

This just started for the first time today. I'll tap the brakes to get the car out of cruise and the "Check Engine" light will come on. Sometimes the "Low Fuel" light will accompany it. At low idle speed, the engine will stall when the brakes are tapped. 117, 000 miles on the Police Intercepter.

1985 Crown Victoria Ignition System Tuning

Ignition Module failed on this 302CID (5.0L) V8 engine. The failed module was found to be an aftermarket replacement marked "Standard", with no other identifying marks. I've replaced the module with two similar Motorcraft units from similar vehicles with unsatisfactory results -- also replaced plugs and checked rotor, cap & wires. I followed, or tried to follow the correct timing sequence and yet the problem acts like a timing or weak spark issue. Engine fires instantly and appears to run perfectly under no load conditions. However, as soon as I put the transmission into Drive, that's when the trouble begins. Initially, one can hear a roaring sound from a unit mounted on the intake manifold between the throttle body and the firewall. When driving, the engine misfires badly under load, most noticeably on the wide gear step to overdrive -- this misfire diminishes gradually as speed increases and the need for lots of torgue is lessened -- you can almost feel the engine regaining proper firing one cylinder at a time as it smoothes out but the roaring sound never goes away completely. You can smell exhaust type fumes from the noisy intake manifold unit. Fuel economy sucks. Any ideas?

The interior lights will not go out, and the doors do not automatically lock when vehicle is put in park. The door ajar switchs are all working.

The Power door locks, Power Seats and Trunk Lid Release do not function. Fuse relay #7 20A CB controls these operations and when trying to pull it out I find that it is very hot and I mean HOT. The fuse is in a metal cover and so I left it out as I was afraid it may cause a fire or melt down.

When I first went out to the car all functioned normal when I stopped and then locked the door's, on returning I could not get into the car only by using the key. Would appreciate some Ideas.

Nov 13/03 9:22AM: My 1993 CV has a problem with its windshield wipers, they will often hesitate and stop when I am using the intermittant switch, put they will also hesitate when I turn them on and off. It seems to do this more when cold. The switch makes a clicking sound when I turn the wiper switch, there also seems to be a clicking noise at the same time from the dashboard, like a module. The wiper moter seems to work finem and I had the goveror replaced because the wipers were getting quite loud. If it is a defective switch do you need to replace the whole blinker arm? or is there a module I can try to replace 1st? Thanks for you help.

1986 Crown Victoria Fuel System Stalling

I have a police interceptor crown vic. My problem is with the carb. It is a holley 2 bbl that a dealer mecanic told me was put on the vics to replace the motorcraft vent. venturi carb. Holley cant even pull the number off of that carb (like it never existed). I desperately need a good carb for this car. I have replaced the engine in past yr with a jasper engine and noticed a leak coming from the side gaskets of the carb by the auto overdrive and throttle entrance. My question is should I just get a carb from a parts store that has no clue if it will even come close to doing the job or see if holley may be able to do a complete rebuild or just get the original motorcraft vv carb? Also the main problem i have is it doesnt want to stay running when cold, car is fine after warmed up
