Question about 1997 Ford Thunderbird LX

1 Answer

Where can I find a vacuum hose diagram for a 1997 ford thunderbird 4.6 ? I started working on my car 3 1/2 years ago and now getting it back together but I am having troubles trying to remember where and how the vacuum hoses run. I've been trying to find a diagram without trying to find another 97 thunderbird to look at. any help would be really appreciated.

Usually, the vacuum hose routing is on the underside of the hood, but if yours is missing, check on . the component locator should be there. if not, try a haynes repair manual .

I have a '95 Ford Thunderbird with CEL throwing code P1407 Exhaust Gas Recirc No Flow detected. Is this a do it yourself fix and if so where is this located on the car? Any help is appreciated, thank you.

I don not remember the ecxact number of parts, however here goes. Takes about an hour.Remove plastic air management(1 bolt, 2 large hose clamps and 2 approx 1 inch hoses). Disconnect the battery terminals. Remove "U shaped vacuum hose from intake(alluminum about 4" in diameter, and elbow shaped). remove vacuum lines from EGR, and the plastic purge solenoid(has two port next to eachother. remove all electronic connection from the throttle positioning sensor, and the components between the intake and the firewall. Remove Cruise Control, and throttle cable. Remove intake(the elbow shaped part) four bolts at the base of it. I believe they are 8mm. Remove two bolts from the EGR valve(kind of a pain to get to) It is on the top of the block close to the fire wall next to the intake(elbow shaped 4 inch tube with TPS) I believe that they are 10mm. space back EGR 1/4 inch with smooth plastic shims to not damage seal, or replace seal. With everything apart clean all that soot and gunk out of that channel directly underneath intake(elbow) and port between that and the EGR. Make sure and take your time to clean this thoroughly. Put back together. The Electrical connectors only goon one way, however pay clos attention to those and the vacuum lines that they are all put back on in the correct places.

1997 ford thunderbird 4.6 keeps coming up with codes for bank 2 oxygen sensors heater malfuntion have replaqced 2 oxygen sensors of the 4 and the egr pressure feedback valve and the egr solinoid any idea...

U don't say codes but most likely the sensor codes are just responding to a problem in the engine, mainly and most common is a lean fuel/air mixture, this is most often caused by vacuum leaks, it only takes a small leak to set the lean codes for the O2's and turn the check engine light on, I am a 25 Year Ford dealer tech and this is the common cause of O2 fault codes, to check for vacuum leaks get a bottle of propane and attach a piece of rubber hose to the end, spray propane around the top of the engine, work slowly and hit all vacuum hoses and the top and edges of the intake manifold, if u hit a leak you will hear the engine change tone most times or increase in rpm slightly, then look closely for the leak, it can be leaking intake gaskets or a cracked rubber vacuum line, even a leaking Vacuum brake booster can set these codes, if u don't find anything obvious it is time to have the dealer hook up there scanners and look at what is going on in the fuel system to create the O2 codes, don't hang anymore parts on, u have already wasted about $100 I would guess.

Sorry, most warranties only cover original repair and no warranty repairs after that. In other words warranty doesn't get a new start date. This is not what you want to hear but as I am in the industry that is the usual wayit operates... Unless you can talk them into extending another year or two....

I have absolutely no air coming out of my vents in my 1997 Ford thunderbird. I pulled the blower motor and it works just fine. What next?

you have a stock vent valve most of the time the get stock in defrost pull the control panel and check the vacuum lines and regulator

Air blowing out of defrost only and not vents

You have a vacuum leak,defroster is the default position for no vacuum. Check all the vacuum lines near where you were working to make sure you didn't accidentally knock one loose.
If you don't see nothing there find the small black vacuum line that goes thru the firewall near the evaporator and heater core under hood. Trace it back to the vacuum canister and then to the intake manifold to make sure it is hooked up.
