Question about 1983 Lincoln Town Car

2 Answers

Power brake booster compatibility - 86 crown vic to 83 town car

I have both an 83 lincoln town car, and an 86 crown vic. Both are 5.0 engines. I want to swap the vic's booster and system out, I just want to be sure that it's directly interchangeable. I mean the master cylinder and hoses as well. The calipers from the vic are stock, so I'll be leaving those be. My question is: are the booster, mc, and lines interchangeable? Better safe than sorry when dealing with brakes. :3

I think if there is a problem it would be if one had A.B.S. and the other did not, otherwise i can't see any problem. just have to look at it and see if everything lines up. i believe the boosters are the same, if they look the same and bolt up the same i don't see any problem. you might want to chk. with a ford dealer just to see if there is a differance in volume on booster.

96 grand marquis...air suspension light stays on all the time...system seems to work fine otherwise...


If everything is working fine, then you need to decide if it is worth the time and expense of repairing the circuit that leaves the light on when it should be off. I would leave it alone and if the lamp bothers you that much you can remove it or cover it with a piece of black tape.

Why are breaks hard to press and car won't start


Check that the vacuum hose on the brake booster is ok if it has come apart it will be hard to start . have you checked the fuel and the ignition system ?. to check the brake booster , with the engine stopped press the brake pedal down ,then start the engine, the pedal will move down a little if the booster is ok . if the brakes are still hard to press the wheel cylinders may be stuck.

Air suspension 93 lincoln town car


Not really.
The air bags act as replacement or extra coil springs to hold the car up.
You might be able to replace them with coil springs from a Crown Vic.
That may cause problems with the front air bags and the rest of the system.

Water pump failed. Car overheated. Engine lost power. Car smoke out from back of engine and from rear of car. I replaced water pump. Car still smokes when I drive it. Still has no power.


Notorious for intake leaks, the composite plastic intakes crack and leak coolant-as to the lack of power, you mght have overheated it and done some damage to the engine. There was a recall (information below) for the 4.6 for the intake-the overheating and lack of power means you should at least have compression checked and go from there-you may have bad head gaskets or worse. Do a compression test before you do anything else.

Ford Motor Company will extend the recall (01M02) on 4.6L V8 equipped vehicles with plastic intake manifolds. Some of the composite intake manifolds used on 4.6L SOHC engines may develop fatigue cracks at the coolant crossover duct. This condition could result in engine coolant leakage which, if not serviced, may cause engine overheating. Complete loss of coolant may result in engine damage or engine failure.
The updated recall now includes:
• Certain 1996 through 2001 Model Year Crown Victoria Police Interceptor
• Certain 1998 through 2001 Model Year Crown Victoria with Taxi
• Certain 1998 through 2001 Lincoln Town Car Limousine and Livery Prep Package
• Certain 1996-2001 Crown Victoria Taxis, Police cars and Lincoln Town Car Limousine and Livery cars.
• Certain 1996 through 1997 Crown Victoria Police Interceptor Vehicles with 4.6L SOHC engines built at the St. Thomas Assembly Plant from the beginning of production for the 1996 Model Year through January 28, 1997.
• Certain 1998 through 2001 Crown Victoria Police Interceptor Vehicles with 4.6L SOHC engines built at the St. Thomas Assembly Plant from November 22, 1997 through December 15, 2000.
• Certain 1998 through 2001 Crown Victoria Taxi Vehicles with 4.6L SOHC engines built at the St. Thomas Assembly Plant from November 22, 1997 through December 15, 2000.
• Certain 1998 through 2001 Lincoln Town Car Limousine Prep Package and Livery Vehicles with 4.6L SOHC engines built at the Wixom Assembly Plant from November 22, 1997 through December 15, 2000.
