  • iceman_one Jan 23, 2009

    Thanks. So far its fixed. I did change the spark plugs and 3 spark plugs were very wet. The other 5 were very dry any reason why?

  • iceman_one Jan 23, 2009

    O boy. So far no white smoke. It runs very good now. Thank you for your help. I am selling the car now. I think it needs a head gasket. Again thank you.

Check your tranny and engine mounts.
they may be bad or going bad and will create that vibration. specially the tranny ones.

    Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) P1131 and P1151 indicate the system is correcting rich for an overly lean condition. The HO2S voltage is less than 0.45 volt.

    * DTCs P1132 and P1152 * indicate the system is correcting lean for an overly rich condition. The HO2S voltage is greater than 0.45 volt.

    DTCs P1130 and P1150 indicate the fuel control system has reached its maximum compensation for a lean or rich condition and HO2S is not switching.

    DTC P0171, left bank, and DTC P0174, right bank, indicate the fuel/air ratio is too lean. The system is at the rich limit.

    DTC P0172, left bank, and DTC P0175, right bank, indicate the fuel/air ratio is too rich. The system is at the lean limit.



    YOU MAY NEED O2 SENSORS.

    MMMMM........ IT LOOKS LIKE YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE A HEAD GASKET REPAIR. GAS IS DUE TO FAULTY SPARK, EITHER IGNITION WIRES, SPARK PLUGS OR COIL. BUT OIL IS BECAUSE THE GASKET IS DAMAGED.

    YOU WILL EXPERIENCE WHITE SMOKE COMING FROM YOUR TAIL PIPE IF IT'S NOT ALREADY DOING IT.

1997 FORD THUNDERBIRD IS MAKING TICKING SOUND WHEN STARTING AND STOPPED AT LIGHTS


Old oil can do this...replace the oil, with a lower grade 10w30 and have your oil pump checked if the problem continues.

My 1997 Ford Thunderbird LX will only move in Reverse. What is wrong with the transmission? It does not drive forward.


well unfortantly thereisnt any description as to what it does do when you put it in any of your forward gear does it try to go does it make any noises was it slipping prior to did you just turn it off one day it was going great prior to that and just no signs of anything just did it fords have very weak planatary gears in there transmissions if you **** it from park to drive thinking maybe it was going to stall so you quickly step on the gas pedal it can cause the planatary gear which is rite the pump to implode which in that case it needs to be rebuilt or replaced but however anytime you have a situation were you loose one or more gears you can go ahead and line it up for a transmission bill at a tranny rebuild shop

Severe vibration and knocking sound!


sounds more like a ujoint or a center support for the drive shaft. also check and make sure that the flywheel bolts have not come loose. also check the harmonic balancer and make sure it is not seperating
