Question about Cars & Trucks
This looks like a weighted damper control(sort of) that is broken off of what mmay be a heat riser tube, I bet it was rattling before it fell off and should have been loud enogh to hear over the engine.. these usually went between the exhaust header and the intake snorkel and allowed heated air to enter the intake from the exhaust sheilds on certain models.."handle with gloves " was a warning for extemely high temps as the exhaust header gets almost red-hot in some cases so check this area first...good luck

Yes, it's the cars heater core leaking. The heater core is like a mini radiator under the dash-coolant circulates through it from the engine to provide the heat. To change the heater core is a very labor intensive job. You really need to get a repair manual, or go online to 'alldata' diy repair where you can sign up for 1 year or more access to your Crown Vics repair info. Excellent source for diagrams and instructions. I believe one year is $16.95, good for ONE car info for a year.
