There is a coolant hose that runs under the upper section of the intake manifold, this is the most likely source of the coolant leak, u can't really see the hose until u remove the pper intake..

I have antifreeze coolant leaking from the rear of my engine and want to gain excess to my rear freeze plugs. Do I pull my transmission to change the rear freeze plugs on the 1989 crown Victoria?


Yes, you have to pull the transmission. But look it over closely. Most likely the coolant is coming from somewhere else. I have never seen or replaced a bad freeze plug back there. Water can't get to them to rust them out from the outside in. Only if you use water only to cool the engine. Heater hoses and the intake manifold gaskets can cause a leak in this area.

Unless I'm mistaken, there are some on back of engine block under the bell housing, requiring pulling engine or transmission to access.

I took a 01 ford f 150 triton engine and put it in a 97 ford crown victoria and switched all the components over but it's not running right it stall on acceleration then pick up speed I did not switch the...


Yes. You need the ecu that came with that engine. Did you switch intakes? The f 150 4.6 has a taller intake and I believe the stroke is different. I would switch the throttle position sensor too.

My 1998 Crown Victoria had steamed the passenger side windshield, digital thermostat never indicated that the engine was hot, i smell antifreeze, water leaking inside passenger side by glove box and a


It sure sounds like the heater core, especially if you have water leaking inside the cabin. The two heater hoses only go from the engine to the firewall, and do not go into or through the firewall. They connect to the heater core right at the firewall.
Check carefully around the back side of the engine and the heater hoses, though. If a freeze plug is leaking, water will be dripping off the bottom of the engine. If it is leaking before the firewall, that would not be the heater core.

97 crown vic While driving it's like someone is pushing the brakes every few seconds. what would cause this?


A bent rotor or a stuck piston in ur caliper either from dirt in caliper or a bad your brake hose. Thats what I'd say were the most likely causes and if you don't feel a wobble I'd say the caliper on one of your wheels. chk ur pads if 1 set is worn a lot more than the others or an excessive amount of brake dust on 1 rim that could be your culprit. Hope that helps.

I have engine from 1984 ford crown victoria. it isnota a302 ci. i was told it is a 351 windser when i brought it. how many engine size came with the 1984 crown vic? or what engine do i have?


Crown Victorias that year came with two engine options.
The regular Crown Vic had a 302 cubic inch engine.
The Police version had a 351W.
The 351W is a much better, stronger engine.
The easiest way to tell at a glance is to see if you can access the bottom thermostat housing bolt with a socket. If you can it's a 351W. If you can only get a wrench on that bolt, then it's a 302.

Crown Vic wont turn over.


I would check the plugs around and on the engine. Also check to see if the inertia switch in the trunk was tripped, that cuts off power to the fuel pump in an accident.

Have a 97 crown vic and everytime I turn a corner


I would look under your car and look for gas stain's, it's either going to be the filler or vent hose's or the o-ring where the fuel pump goes into the gas tank.

Water was used in coolent system with no anti freeze,


Is the water pump now leaking? There are other components that may have been damaged. The freeze out plugs in the engine block are designed to pop out if the coolant is not sufficient and freezes. This is to save the engine block from cracking, which may have happened. U need to get the car in a heated garage, fill system w/ water, check for leaks, and get the car running to again check for further leaks or problems. The radiator/heater core may also have been damaged. Only way to find out is to thaw it out and check it over carefully for leaks. Let me know how u make out.
