This is All you need for this Repair, ALSO Be Sure ALL GASKET SURFACES ARE VERY CLEAN. This Engine Requires MORE than MOST ALL Engines do for this Repair.

REMOVAL

  1. To remove a valve rocker arm cover from the RH cylinder head, disconnect PCV closure tube from oil fill stand pipe at rocker cover.
  2. Remove the Thermactor bypass valve and air supply hoses as necessary to provide clearance.
  3. Disconnect the spark plug wires from the spark plugs using Spark Plug Wire Remover T74P-6666-A or equivalent. Do not pull on wire. Remove the wires and bracket assembly from the rocker arm cover attaching stud and position the wires out of the way. ALSO MARK THEM AS TO WHERE THEY CAME FROM !!!
  4. Remove upper intake manifold.
  5. Remove attaching bolts and remove the cover.

  3. Install the crankcase ventilation tube in the RH cover.
  4. Install upper intake manifold.

89 lincoln towncar pcv location


In '87 Town Car, with the 5.0 L. engine, with fuel injection the PCV is located on the top and at the rear of the engine, about where the transmission is connected, close to the firewall, slightly more on the passenger side of center.

There is also a pre-filter located below this PCV valve. It is a small can with coarse steel wool inside, do not allow this to become plugged, as it will cause too much internal engine pressure to build up resulting in leaking gaskets.

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

Oil around spark plug and car mis fires


The oil around the plug may be a sign that the valve-cover needs a new gasket. Oil on the plugs can cause a misfire but it is important that you check everything over. The misfire could be due to defective wires, boots, coils, spark-plug/s, injector/s, and so much more. Take a look at the cars maintenance history, Maybe it is over due for a complete tune-up or oil change. The car is 11years old, how many miles are on it? How was it running before this?

I have antifreeze in oil pan & cylinder in my 1989 Lincoln Towncar


Hi:
The most likely cause of this is a leaking head gasket or intake gasket. Depending on how much cash you want to put into this car, the best plan of repair is to replace both head gaskets, and when you do this, the intake gaskets get changed as well. You can have the heads cleaned and checked while they are off the car.
