    You can check this by turning the engine back an forth with a socket wrench. Just needs to be turned an inch or so each way. Frankster016

    You will find an inspection cover at the front bottom of the trans, the flex plate can then be seen. once this is off. Rather a big job to replace, as the tranny will need to be yanked out. You may want to consider taking it to a well equipped shop, they could do this in less than 2 hours! Frankster016

I have a 96 thunderbird that makes a loud whistling sound from air intake

If the noise is like a loud hoot or a wounded moose and you have a 4.6L engine then you need to update the iac intake tube. Ford basic part # 9H308. The turbulence that this tube creates makes you Idle air control resonate resulting in a hoot noise.

78 Ford Thunderbird w/ 351 Windsor motor

You'll need to raise the engine to replace the oil pan. Take the trans./converter loose, remove the engine mounts, wiring, fuel line, and anything else that could be a problem with raising the engine. You can use 2 6 x 6's and place under the engine mounts and rest the engine on these. This should provide you with room to drop the pan.
