Question about Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

I have a 1992 lincoln execuitve series. When I start it and run it for a while smoke began to fill the inside of the car, and fogging the windows. A smell of antifreeze is present. I have been told I have "blown the heads gaskets", " I need and intake gaskets", but I have summed it down to a "heater core". Do this make sense please "Help".

    absolutely , heat cores are prominent problem in lincolns , ive done my
    share , windshield fogging up with a film and coolant all over the
    passenger floor , and you don't want to know how big of a job that heater core is , rated at 8.5 to 10.5 hours depending on what shop you go to . please don't kill the messenger .i'm not going to call this a solution , no rating required .

On my 1992 ford taurus I replaced the belts and now car is squealing and smoking what now


Assuming that you have routed the belt properly:

Look for a pulley that isn't turning when the engine is running. A seized air pump did this exact thing on a Lincoln Town Car that I recently worked on. My in-laws had a Mercury Zephyr that stopped dead from a seized power steering pump.

Have a helper ready to start the car when you say so. Have a flashlight in hand, if necessary. When the engine is running, look for a seized (not spinning) pulley. It's likely that the belt was damaged if it smoked a lot.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

Coolant vapors coming through vents


Sounds to me like a leaking heater core, probably just started. Quite an extensive operation to replace. If you happen to be in a cold climate, the windows will undoubtedly fog up. Hope this helps

The inside of the car fogs up and on very cold mornings ice forms


This can be caused by a heater core that is leaking inside the car, one way to determine if that's the problem, is if you can smell antifreeze. It is a 'sweet' smell, and is quite noticeable. If u don't notice this, I have to say this is a common problem w/ Hondas. I've had a civic, 2 accords (currently have a 92), and 2 Preludes, they are great cars, but they all suffer from fogged up windows in cold weather. One reason is that they are quite air tight, and the older models don't have the greatest defroster system (weak). Try and keep a window cracked open slightly, see if that helps.

Antifreeze smell and smoke coming out of vents


You have a coolant leak most likely in the heater core. Try disconnecting your heater hoses and coupling them together, then running the engine to see if the leak goes away. If it does, I would have the heater core replaced.

Heater works but defrost fills inside with fog.


your heater core has probably sprung a leak.does the fog smell kinda sweet?....check the floor in the front where the floor mats are for moisture or even puddles of antifreeze.(the replacement of a heater core can be very expensive as the entire dash usually needs to be removed to access the heater core)also look under the engine near the firewall for antifreeze drips.
