Question about 1994 Ford Thunderbird

Removing 1994 V8 Ford Thunderbird timing chain cover?

I have been dissembling my thunderbird because I thought I had an busted intake manifold gasket. Once I was able to get the intake off I found that my gaskets were fine. Now, I'm in the process of pulling the heads off to check the head gaskets. I am stuck right now because I can't get the timing chain cover off. I believe the power steering pump is bolted onto the cover and that is why I can't finish getting it off. However, when I look there is no real easy way to remove the power steering pump. Do I have to take the power steering pump off to remove the timing chain cover? If so, how?

Have you removed the PS pump pulley? You need to do that to get it off.

Where does the upstream passenger side 02 sensor bolt in on the exhaust i found the sensor hanging from the electrical connector busted out the engine its a 1994 ford thunderbird

It should be screwed directly into the exhaust manifold. If you found it hanging, and you do not have a major exhaust leak, then I would say that your O2 sensor is broken. Look for a bung on the manifold and you will have to extract what is left of your old one.

Do i have to remove my timing belt in order to replace my water pump in my 1997 ford thunderbird lx its a 4.6 v8

Your car use3s a timing chain not a belt. The water pump will be serviced by first removing the serpentine belt and then removing the water pump pulley and then finally removing the water pump. It is a fairly easy pump to replace.

If you have any further question please ask I I will be happy to help.

My 1994 Ford Thunderbird now smokes when I start it - no noises in the engine, but smokes like crazy. Check engine light is one now?

state what color the smoke is. White smoke is antifreeze. Gray smoke is fuel, and black smoke is oil. Also have the computer scanned so you know why the light is on.

Have a 1997 ford thunderbird v8...started running very rouhg and check engine light blinking. Changed plugs and wires but noticed small coolant leak above engine. Ran fine for 10 days then started running...

Light should have stored code. Go to local autoparts chain & get free scan for codes and go from there. Saves all that guess work & money a lot of times. Write down code(s) and let us know.
