Question about 1995 Ford Crown Victoria

5 Answers

The trunk of car is low to the ground, the frontend is high

What has caused my backend to lower to the ground which the frontend sticks up high? There is a switch in my trunk that currently reads off. Should it be turned on or does it have anything to do with the lowering of the back. Please help?

It sounds to me like your compressor got killed. What probably happened is that the airbag got a hole or tiny crack in it so the compressor has to work extra hard because it is like blowing up a balloon with a hole in it. Therefor the airbag killed the compressor. I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at our conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car. I added the link below so you can check it out.

Good Luck!!!

The short answer is that your vehicle is equipped with air ride suspension. The trunk-mounted de-activation switch does need to be on.
Currently your air suspension is deflated.

Yes turn ( that switch) the air ride suspension back on , sometimes shops forget to re-enable it after working on the vehicle , not that this is the case , but things happen . you may or may not have to turn the key on to get it to fill back up .

That switch needs to be on. It sounds like you have Airbag Suspension on the Rear and this switch should be for the Compressor.

What can cause trouble code p0118 engine coolant temp sensor ( high voltage input ) 99 intrepid 2.7 v6


The engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor is a variable resistor, that measures the temperature of the engine coolant. The ECT sensor has a signal circuit and a low reference circuit. The engine control module (ECM) supplies 5 volts to the ECT signal circuit and a ground for the ECT low reference circuit. When the ECT is cold, the sensor resistance is high. When the ECT increases, the sensor resistance decreases. With high sensor resistance, the ECM detects a high voltage on the ECT signal circuit. With lower sensor resistance, the ECM detects a lower voltage on the ECT signal circuit. If the ECM detects an excessively high ECT signal voltage, which is a low temperature indication, DTC P0118 sets. You have A bad coolant temp sensor or a wiring problem !

Trunk light will not turn off


Hello,

Was the humidity high in the area where you live for a long period of time (a week)?

If Yes: I had a similar problem with one of my vehicles--I would shut all the doors and my running lights and inside lights would stay on. The computer thought a door was open because of a sensor.
Solution: For my solution I bought some silicone spray and lubricated each and every latch point on the doors and hatch. The high humidity causes the latches to stick not allowing full mechanism travel thus giving a false reading to the computer.
If No: You could try cleaning the sensors--unplugging them--cleaning every contact point and reconnecting. If this works even for a short time then there is an intermittent problem with the sensor--replace the sensor. If cleaning does not show a change the sensor could still be bad.
OR--there could be a ground problem between the dash and sensor telling the computer there is an open loop. Cause of grounding issue--micro-friction--relating to the constant motion of a wire rubbing on metal wearing through outer wire coating causing internal wire to make contact with a metal surface thus grounding the loop permanently or intermittently.

I hope this helps,

Doug

Is transmission fluid pan accessable from underneath car?


Yeah, that's how it is done. Use jackstands or blocks under car. Raise enough that you can work comfortably underneath. The pan is on the very bottom of the transaxle. Loosen all pan bolts a turn or two, then remove bolts from one end, letting pan start lowering, catch fluid with drain pan. When fluid level in the pan gets low, finish removing all pan bolts, and pull the pan off. Filter is right there underneath the pan.

Stering wheel shakes at 30 to 40 miles an hour


Put your spare tire on one side of the front. Drive it, if it does not help, replace the spare and then try removing the other front tire. Drive it and see if it helped.

The tire that caused the vibration probably threw a weight or has a broken belt. Have that tire checked and repaired, then have the Tire shop put the spare back in the trunk.

If it is not a tire problem check your tierod ends. They connect both front wheels and if there is a lot of play, you can get shake and wobble from the slack in the frontend.

Sometimes front Rotors can cause a shake when you hit the brakes. If the car shakes without pressing the brakes, then its the tires or frontend.

A loose ground wire to the headlight will keep it dim,Or a headlight adjustment will bring the headlight up.If you can have your headlight turned on a garage door or something at night,and then watch as you change your headlights from low beam to high beam which ones are higher.the last thing to verify is that your high beam headlights are not the plastic lens type that turn dull which cuts the light power.

1996 FORD THUNDERBIRD ALTERNATORS KEEP BLOWING


A bad ground kills alternators and charging at full capacity too long does them in. The charge rate read with a meter should be 1.6 -14.2 No higher or lower. The lower the voltage the higher the ampereage. So @ 10 volts the alternator is working real hard and that causes the alt. to overheat enough to damage solder connections. Hence,the term "slinging solder. The bad ground, battery or alt, causes output spikes and regulator damGE. cHECK ALL YOUR CONNECTIONS AND THE VOLT RANGE OF ALT OUTPUT. iF IT'S CONSISTANTLY TOO HIGH, YOUR BATTERY SHOULD BE QUESTION.. The voltage should be low after cranking and starting but statart climbing after a minute or so as it recovers.

Oil gauge goes up and down.


If grounding the dash does not work, try putting a mechanical gauge on it and reading actual oil pressure. Pressure does change while driving, but should not wander. With mechanical gauge, check that running hot at idle (in gear if automatic) pressure should not drop lower than 15psi (I'd rather see 20) High reading should be around 40 -50 but no higher.Low pressure indicates a loss of supply or bad bearing on the crankshaft, high pressure may be caused by sticking pressure relief or restriction in an oil passage.

Take the jack handle and stick it through the hole in the bumper (tailgate open) near the latch. it will engage a manual crank - lower it down to the ground and un-hook)
