Question about Cars & Trucks
1987 Lincoln town car. I was wondering if I swapped out transmissions would I get better speed with this car. The 302 motor is a good motor, but I just want a little more kick. Recommended transmissions to use if it would work? Thanks.
No you would not get a better speed . If you want more speed the answer is in the diff ratio so you will have to change the crown wheel and pinion . That is to say if you have a ratio of 3.5 to 1 then a ratio of 3..25 to 1is faster. Talk with a transmission rebuilder and he will advise of a good ratio to get the speed you want. Remember that a ratio change will alter your speed reading on the speedo

Hello Callahan5922....this sounds like a stuck blower motor resistor. I assume the blower won't function in the a/c mode either? If you have a digital multimeter you can check this. I believe it's fuse #2....if the digital indicator goes up or down when you increase or decrease the fan speed thats good. Locate the blower motor resistor....you wil find it located on the fire wall behind the right valve cover hiding behind the heater hose, it's about the size of a cigarette pack. With the engine off, and key in on position, turn the A/C on High, and rap a tap tap tap on the resistor. You might be suprised when the blower motor takes off a runnin,
I hope this is the answer you need and i was able to help solve this for you. Good luck...

under the trunk lip (directly where the latch goes into the lock jaws; remove the carpet so that you can see the side of the trunk latch; on the latch jaws (bottom) is a switch that contacts the latch (top) this switch is broken or, mis-aligned it opens (stops the trunk motor) when the latch contacts it.

yes the teft light will stop the vehicle from running. that is the pats system and can cause all sorts of trouble. if the light flashes fast its not reading the key. no start. if it turns on for two seconds and shuts off the it should start
