    Where is the mileage on this car, and has it been driven hard and abusively, or has it been babied? I'm concerned about your cylinder compression.

SOURCE: Wiper motor replacement for a 99 crown vic

I replaced the same part on a 1994 Crown Vic. There are a few bolts which go through rubber mounts on the firewall and that is how the wiper motor fits against the firewall. There is a clip on the wiper drive that must be pressed and slid off the wiper shaft. The hardest part was getting clearence between the engine and wiper motor. If I remember there was a way to turn the wiper case to clear the engine. I have asked myself why this was engineered like this? There is nothing important in the way that 3/4" of clearance could have been given for removal.

SOURCE: 1995 crown vic gear problems/gear shift wont lock

most likely the shift tube bushings are bad- you may have also lost a few screws in the shift tube or they could just be loose. you have to pull the steernig column down to inspect/repair it.

SOURCE: How to replace egr valve on 1995 crown vic 4.6.

On 1995 Crown Victoria the EGR valve is located at the rear of the engine compartment. While the attaching bolts can be gotten out with a little bit of a problem the egr tube that atteches the EGR valve to the right exhaust manifold is a pain. It is possible to do though. Here are the removal and installation instructions. If you are sure that the EGR valve is the reason for any check engine light then you can remove the battery cable for about five minutes to reset the light, but if the light is on for a differant reason then you just got rid of the code plus any freeze frame data that a shop could have used to diagnose the problem.

SOURCE: My 99 Crown Vic acts like it isn't getting gas

Was the fuel tank drained and flushed when the fuel pump was replaced? By this time it will have collected a lot of junk and gunk. Without cleaning the tank, the fuel pump will simply clog and stop working again.

My 2004 ford crown vic hesitates and wants to die on acceleration, It idles fine but when i press the throttle it dies. Now the mechanic wants to charge me for a new wire harness and computer?

Find another mechanic.. First, if the harness is bad, it is almost impossible to diagnose a bad computer. I diagnose cars. I start with power and grounds first. Then check wires for continuity. Check sensor and actuators for resistance. I get 1 hour to do this. Usually do it. Sometime the harness is bad. it requires more time. Being a ford... I would start with cleaning the maf sensor and the throttle body. Look at replacing the fuel and air filter.

My 1996 Crown Vic. recently started to buck and backfire a bit, turned out to be a misfire on #4, have been looking into it with a bit of progress but not complete success

I have faced the same thing with my car, this is not a single answer to this problem. It could be a bad boot on the coil pack, it could be a improper coil install, sometimes the spring does not sit in well, it could be that the intake manifold is leaking, it could be that the egr valve is stuck, it could the exhaust manifold is leaking, sometimes these issues are not caught by the OBD 2 sensors, you can try to move the coils around to see if that works out.

I have a 1995, when I give it gas it doesn't want to go.

This issue indicates either a bad MAP or TPS sensor. These sensors should be tested. I don't have a manual for your car, so I cannot give you procedures for testing--sorry.

I have a 98 Crown Vic, It feels like it has a

Maybe, Ford motors are sensitive to airflow changes, a slow responding MAF can cause delayed signals to real world conditions. An UNDERreporting MAF will ENLEAN the fuel charge as delivered to the injectors. This can feel like or perceived to be a misfire/coil problem, BUT ONLY UNDER A LOAD. Check all PCM inputs, condition of components.What is more logical: EIGHT (8) coils OR EIGHT (8) injectors failing AT THE SAME TIME? I would look at a single component scenario insteadwise, fuel pump? ACT sensor? TPS? EGR solenoids? MAF?

There are two fuel filters one in the tank and one on the frame rail on the inside on the driverside or passenger side of car. follow the fuel lines to the front from the tank you will see where the filter is. You could have other problems as well, a maf or map sensor could be going bad so post here if you need more help. Thanks for using fix-ya and please rate if this helped.

Replace you Maf sensor and have a nice day. lol does the hesitation go away when you let off the gas. does it buck hesitate and misfire under load? most common problem is the maf sesnor.
easy to change. don't buy a used part it may develop the same problem after a little while. you can try cleaning the wire inside with brake cleaner (not intake cleaner). it may or may not help.
