Yes you will have to raise the engine, also, and remove some other items that can be damaged when lifting. An engine hoist will be needed for this job. This text was taken from a 2000 crown vic workshop manual.
see pic for torque sequence. i could not locate a torque spec, so you will have to hand feel them. if it is a rubberized gasket do not over tighten as it will crush the gasket.

Hope this helps!

Yeah Rick, The previous answer is a complete explain and the best to use. Since the pan and gasket need removed from the front, be sure that the crankshaft throws are up out of the way on the front by putting the front 2 pistons at top dead center before starting this procedure and you're clear. Best of luck my friend.

SOURCE: How to replace uppe ball joint in Ford Crown

First make an appointment for a front end alignment which will be required after replacing the ball joint. Securely support the vehicle under the lower control arm at the outer end, the end nearest the tire. The upper ball joint is attached to the upper control arm with 2 large nuts. Under the nuts are cams with hex heads for adjusting caster and camber. Mark the position of these cams in a way that will allow you to reinstall them somewhere near the same position. Next remove the outer end of the joint from the steering knuckle an then remove the 2 nuts and both cams from the control arm end. Reinstall and get that alignment asap !

1992 Ford Crown Victoria Oil Pan is leaking. Is this a major problem to replace? Fred


It is recommended that you lift out the engine before attempting to replace the oil pan. Once the engine is lifted you can remove the bolts, remove the pan, clean all the old gasket material.
Installation: Remove the rear main bearing cap oil seal Remove the timing cover oil seal Clean all the mating surfaces and seal grooves Install new oil pan front cover seals Install a new rear main bearing cap oil seal Install new oil pan side gaskets on the block Make sure the tabs of the front and rear seal fit properly as these are critical spots Attach the oil pan to the engine block and install the retaining bolts

Would like to change oil pan on 1990 ford crown vic 5.0 302 cu/in how do i begin


Before you do, why do you want to change the pan? OK then, consider the sump, is it front or rear? Do you have room to drop the pan 6 inches and get it out? The oil sump is at the bottom of the pan. If not, you have to pull the motor mount bolts out and jack up the engine. Then pull it out. When you put in the new pan, use no adhesive on the gasket, none. Bolt that baby up, drop the engine, tighten everything up, fill her up with oil, you should be all set.

Just need info about changing transmission oil in 1996 Ford Crown Victoria LX. I'm not familiar with type of Transmission oil to use and how many quarts it holds and location of the drain plug.


You will need to drop the trans pan to drain. In turn you will need a trans filter kit which will include the filter and gasket. As far as fluid, it will require mercon dexron auto trans fluid, and will take about 6 quarts. What I normally do is fill with 5 qts and check, then add half qt at a time till full, which is normally 6 qts.
