I can tell you some of the tests a garage can run to find your problem.

For the water leak, there is a pressure pump which works like a bicycle pump and fits on the radiator. It can also test the cap for pressure. You can do the test with the engine cold and you can rent the tool from Autozone or Oreillys with a deposit. Or you can take it to a garage.

The oil test is a case for observation. You look under the car and see where the oil is coming from. If you can not see it unaided, a kit is made with glowing dye to put in the oil. After it is added a special light pen is use to trace the leak. You can do it or have a garage do it.

The fixing of both problems comes after finding the defect. If you are handy, water hoses are easy. Radiators and water pumps require more time,tools and effort. Oil leaks most always require replacing gaskets
and oilpan holes can sometimes be fixed with JB weld on clean surfaces.

The engine in your car has been used before and after 1996. I had one with 161,000 miles and have another with 43,000miles. No leaks of water or oil in either engine.

Oil leak in driver side rear wheel well for 2005 crown vic. drips down over top of tire and puddles under it.


Hi Don:
Have you checked to see if it's brake fluid?
Is it possible that the slave cylinder is leaking and the fluid is coming ot from the brakes? I can't think of any oil source in that area.

I have a 1996 crown vic with a police interceptor engine. It has began to miss really bad, it has 155,000 miles. Do you think it could be the plugs and plug wires? It has gotten progressively worse over a...


If the miss is worse when the engine load is high, I.E.- acceleration or in overdrive then it is very likely that you have hit the nail on the head with plugs and wires. They are very common for failure on the vehicle you have. Do NOT skimp, use good wires and the specific motorcraft spark plugs. (I am not usually a fan of pushing Manufacturer parts, but in this case.......) Also be on the lookout for vacuum leaks, another common issue on the car. Contamination breaks down the rubber and the elbows and hoses collapse, split, and leak.
Have fun. The plugs and wires will help you to learn patience.

On my 1983 Crown Vic, the water disappears and I'm not sure where its going. new water pump, thermostat, ran great for 6 months after these were installed. not leaking, radiator was flushed out, new oil...


There is a chance the water it' been burn by the car . It's posible that a internal leak between the Intake manifold gasket or the head gasket going thruogh the combustion chamber.
A good idea will be to perform a radiator pressure test to determine that, also you can have your sparkplugs inspected for signs of an abnormal condition, sometimes they can tell you a lot.

My crown victoria is leaking radiator water inside the car. mainly on the passenger side beneath the glove compartment. It smells really bad, and I can't find the leak. Is there any way to get detailed...


Yes, it's the cars heater core leaking. The heater core is like a mini radiator under the dash-coolant circulates through it from the engine to provide the heat. To change the heater core is a very labor intensive job. You really need to get a repair manual, or go online to 'alldata' diy repair where you can sign up for 1 year or more access to your Crown Vics repair info. Excellent source for diagrams and instructions. I believe one year is $16.95, good for ONE car info for a year.

Got a 96 crown vic that runs but smoking white smoke from under the hood and it runs hot ....the resevoir is full so there is no leak there and i replaced the thermostat but it didnt work


you ether have a coolant leak or one of these are the problem thermastat,fan clutch,water pump,radiator, try this start car when it reachs normal temp open hood and pinch the top radiator hose if it is hot water is flowing thermastat is good now open radiator with a towel slowly while it is runing see if the water is moving if it is you water pump and radiator are good, now at some point in this time you should have heard the fan get loud if not your fan clutch is not work it mounts to the front of your water pump and is normal to go out because they lose about 250rpm a year which does not give them much of a life, dont forget to check your heater hoses they could be leaking
