Question about 1996 Ford Crown Victoria

1 Answer

Modifying a 96 Crown Vic

I just acquired a 96 Crown Victoria as a project car. Unfortunately it's not a CVPI, just a good old granny car with relatively low miles. I has a blown head gasket and I'm in the process of getting the engine apart to replace it. I would just like to know while I have it apart if there's anything I can do to bring it up to CVPI standard while it's easier to work on.

    Wow, I really thought there would be a lot moreover and to it like some engine mods or a chip or something. I know about the beefier suspension aand such but I was hoping to get the power and sound.

    Dual exhaust is all there is and a processor update to the police car spec. No other engine mods, the HP difference is only about 25 HP between the regular 4.6 and the Police 4.6 V8, how do I know this, was a Ford dealer tech for 25 years.

Why would the cooling fan not be working in a 2005 crown vic CVPI


Does it work when you turn the A/C on? The fan always kicks on with the A/C, if it doesn't look for a blown fuse. Or possibly a fan motor burnt up. If it works with the A/C but doesn't when the engine is too warm, it is probably the temperature sensor.

My 96 crown vic police interceptor, cranks won't start without spraying starter fluid.. the car won't start without spraying starter fluid into air intake hose to carb...


starting fluid is a thing of the past. dont use it. this car doesnt have a carb, its a throttle body/ electronic fuel injection system. you most likely have a fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator issue. test the fuel pressure, should be anywheres from 35-50 psi

Where is the fuse box for the air/heat of a 2001 crown vic Lx. My heat norair wont come on even when it says it is on its not.


There are actually two fuse boxes, at least on my 01 Vic CVPI. The primary one is under the dash on the driver's side and to the left of the steering column. the second one is under the hood near the battery. Your owner's manual should have a diagram as what fuses control your car's accessories. Hope this helped! Bill

Cruise control on my 96 Ford Crown Vic has stopped working. What should I check first?


I dont know if they had it in 96 but there is something called a speed control deactivation switch. Maybe check your owners manual about that.
