Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My son is getting his license soon, and we are tight on cash, the first car option that comes to mind is my mom 1986 Ford LTD crown Victoria she doesn't drive it and you would think since those are built like tanks. It would be safe. However I have a few concerns firstly it has the optional large v8 so its probably very powerful and maybe a bit to much for a new driver and also are those big old cars really that safe? Some people say yes and some say no. Should I look for something else?

Get a small low engine size, very compact car, cheap to service, cheaper to insure and much easier to park, etc.
He won't be quite such a party attraction, but he'll be safer and in the end you'll save money.
Good luck.

If it was an old police vehicle it has probably got an ignition kill switch located somewhere. This will have to be removed. And the wiring put back to factory standards. If not an old police car you are not getting voltage to the starter which is a bad relay. Do you get a clicking sound when you try to start? If yes, have someone keep hitting the start and listen and look for a relay under the hood.

SOURCE: Engine "surging" even when car is stopped at light

After some deep diagnosis with my Scan-tool, I have fixed the issue. Of all things, it was the Coolant Temperature Sensor. I was getting a PO118 code, so I looked up the sensor, graphed it with the scanner and saw that the sensor was flaking out. It would read an avg. temp. of 190 degrees, then all of the sudden drop to -40 degrees. This sensor adjusts the fuel/air ratio, thus explains my idle speed troubles. Basically, the sensor was giving too much fuel or "flooding" the engine. I have been driving for 3-4 days now and have had 0 problems since the replacement. BTW, the sensor is located by the thermostat and can be removed with an 11/16" deep-well socket. I bought the sensor for $15 at O'Reilly Auto parts. Anyway, hope this helps someone.

Where is the starter relay on a 1986 ford ltd crown vic


Follow the BIG RED cable (POS - aka + ) until you find the relay. It may be on the starter. It may be on the fire wall and it may be on the inside of the fender. I am not sure. I am sure it is between the battery and the starter.

Good luck with your project.
