Change out both the speed sensors for the transmission...when one goes bad the next will soon follow. A call to a parts store or ford center can get you the location of where they are located.

SOURCE: 1990 crown victoria had valve cover gaskets remove & replaced, and know my won't reverse good, & keeps cutting off

this is a combination of issues from whomever did the work..first, in order to remove the valve covers, all the hardware on top had to be removed, to include some vacuum equipment and hoses, and the shifter link arm on the drivers side of the firewall. if these hoses arent reconnected properly, the running of the car is effected, and if the shift link arm wasnt adjusted when reinstalled, it wont shift right at all.. if the folks who worked on it wont repair it for free(and you are allowed to watch them do it) then take your bill and the defunct car to another dealer garage who will make it right and charge the bill to the former garage..nothing gets my goat worse than someone who doesnt have a clue what they are doing to my car, thats why all my work is done by me, unless I cant do it myself..(which hasnt happened yet) if you know what you are doing, fixing the vacuum system hoses and such(using a diagram from the auto parts store,) will assist the running of the engine, the shifter adjust is eithewr up top on the steering column under the hood, or under the bottom at the transmission itself...put the car in park firmly and see where the shift arm(once loosened ) sets..adjust it to fit as its supposed to be and it should shift right with all gears present..good luck..

When i put the car in drive it just sits and theres this loud clunky/rattling revving sound?


the hum noise is a worn wheel bearing maybe from getting so hot it burnt the bearing. the rev and bang was your engine blowing. it will cost more money to fix these problems then just getting another car like this one.

I have a 1990 Crown Victoria LTD, it started sputtering at low speed. Then stalled and won't start now. Any ideas?


You will have to start a diagnosis. Starting with the small test then on to others. 1. Getting gas to carberator 2. Pull coil wire and verify firing.

A Pulley and a Power Steering Pump is needed -99 Ford Crown


well let me explain if? the pulley was spiining on thr shaft to begin with on the pump..putting a new pulley on a worn shaft won;t work!! there is 2 ways to fix this!! one is if this is the case then you can use JB weld around the shaft and i mean use it and even put some inside the pulley then put the pulley back on the shaft let set for 4-6 hours before running the engine also you can go to a manchine shop or a parts store and ask for a roll of brass shim stock about .03-.05 thousand's and rapped a few times around the shaft to create a tight fit when you press the pulley back on making sure you leave about a 1/4 inch extended past the end of the shaft so it will go in the pulley on install
