SOURCE: 1997 lincoln town car 4.6 with a p0430 fault code

I will make an assumption here, we know what the root word means. This code was extracted from the computer by? What this is telling you one of 2 things: The Bank 2 oxygen sensor down stream of the catalytic converter (there are 2 converters, one for each bank of cylinders on the 4.6ltr engine) is bad and/or that the Bank 2 catalytic converter is no longer doing the job it was designed to do. Simply, Catalysts wear out. They are good for approx 100,000 miles (as required by Federal Law). Again, I assume that the reason the intake manifold was replaced was because it had a crack in one, or more, of the runners? (part that feeds the head of a manifold). It may have taken a while to find this as being the cause of why the car running incorrectly, maybe rough. This means, that during the time the car was being driven with the problem, the amount of unburned, or not within spec exhaust gases, coming off the side of the engine affected by the intake issue was higher than normal. This out of balance level of exhaust gases were being dumped into the converter on that side of the engine, thus causing the converter to have to run hotter, work harder, or even at the time the gas was being processed through, causing deposits to be formed in the converter, thus shortening it's life span. The Bank 1 side of the engine, apparently, did not have the issue and it's catalytic converter's life was not affected. I hope this makes sense to you.

SOURCE: no heat, lincoln town car, new heat control valve,

It looks like you changed everything involving the hot water. When the engine is warm, you should be getting hot water going through the heater core. By holding each hose from the heater core you should feel heat from both hoses. I did not see a new thermostat listed.

You need to also have the ductwork under the dash moving correctly. If you find that the water lines from the heater core are both hot, then you need the (doors) or flaps in the ductwork to route the heat inside. I do not see that anything was looked at under the dash.

Should I replace water pump?

Hi Fred:
Tricky question.
Personally, I would happily head out on my trip.
That said, depending on the mileage already on the vehicle, and the maintenance history, I would be checking the tires and brakes, check ALL fluids, doing an oil change, and replace the air cleaner and wiper blades.
Coast to coast is really less than most yearly distance traveled so It's the adventure to consider.
Cheers, and enjoy.

Having trouble removing the water pump on a 2000 lincoln town car. I have the bolts removed, but the pump won't budge.

Make sure all the bolts are removed. Also there is a seal that connects to the water pump and engine. This may have sealed on very tight over a period of time. Try to lightly pry the water from the side.

My 1997 Lincoln Town Car is NOT overheating but is leaking anti-freeze. The discharge of fluid is not coming out of the reservoir. what is the problem ? Water pump? Oil? the car has about 160,000 miles but...

Water pumps have a bleed hole located near the pulley on the water pump. When the seals start going out on the water pump you will see a leak there. The air flow from the fan and through the radiator usually blow on this so it scatters the water all over and it's hard to see exactly where it's coming from but if you look close it should be dripping from behind the water pump pulley.

1991 Lincoln Town car overheating

The year of the vehicle, rusty liquid, and overheating, says your radiator could use a replacement. If it was your water pump, you would have liquid coming out of the water pump itself.
