    Thanks, the Haynes manual is not very friendly to first timers. It tells you to remove things but give no indication as to where they are.

SOURCE: own a 1997 mercury grand marquis. went to change

The 4.6 does not have an traditional distributor. This year engine should have two coil packs located on the front of each valve cover. Each coil pack controls four cylinders. Some of the plug wires will cross over the front of the engine in a wire loom on top of the alternator. The spark plugs are located down in the intake manafold. they run beside the fuel rail on each side of the intake manafold where it joins to each head. You will need an extention at least 8 to 10 inches long to get at the spark plugs. The plug wire fit snuggly into the intake manafold and have an extention on them that connects to the spark plug.

How do I remove the intake manifold on a 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis?

If you are not confident you can get it back together, don't take it apart. That being said..You could buy a manual. If you have a library card you can search Oplin Research Database. Go to the car repair reference center and enter your type of vehicle. There will be an option for repair information. Do a search.. Or you could just unplug anything necessary, vacuum lines, wiring. Loosen any nuts, bolts, fasteners, etc. holding the intake on. Replace any gaskets you disturb. Might be a good idea to check on a gasket kit in advance. Remember what you took off and put it back on in reverse. If it is broken replace it. Hope this helps..

Where is the coolant temperture sensor for a 2000 mercury grand marquis LS

I'm showing a fan clutch on the water pump instead of an electric fan on the radiator.
But you could have both.
The computer takes the signal from the temp sensor on the intake manifold to determine engine temp. An electric fan should come on around 230 degrees. There is a relay between the fuse and the fan motor.

I have a 98 grand marquis it keeps overheating I changed my radiator,thermostat and intake manifold the car will drive well then start to overheat and once it overheats all the antifreeze will leak out

This could be a broken head gasket, cracked head or block.

97 grand marquis - appears to be copper nipple at top of block behind water pump w/ hose going back and under the intake manifold. Nipple is leaking just at joint of nipple and block. was told by shop...

Why would a repair shop, tell you after
looking at your vehicle, that the intake
needs to come off. You don't believe
them? You didn't see the issue as they explained
it to you?

There is no quick or cheap in this
world, for anything done correctly

1999 mercury grand marquis occcasionally overheats, blows antifreeze out around radiatior cap & has a gurgling sound coming from passenger floor/dash area. Have replaced thermostat, hoses, waterpump,...

The Grand Marquis's have a know problem that causing overheating. The intake manifold cracks around the water inlet tubes on the intake manifold causing it to loose anti-freeze which in turn causes overheating. Mercury has a beefed up replacement intake manifold that cures the problem. It was a subject of an unannounced recall but they would replace it unless the problem occurs. The recall was for 7 years which the 1999 model wouldn't qualify for now. It happened to me and cost about $450.00 (parts and labor) to fix it. I used a local repair shop to do the work. If, after the engine is hot, you hear water/steam coming from the top of the manifold, you have the problem
