Question about 1996 Ford Thunderbird LX
Motor will turn over but will not start. Replaced maf, plugs. plug wires, cranckshaft positioning sensor, o2 sensors, and checked timing. bought the car les than 90 days ago. retuned it to the dealer and was told that the head gaskets were blown. car never ran hot. was traveling about 65mph and attempted to pass another vehicle when the rpms suddenly dropped, stopped on side of road and restarted the car 15 minutes later after several attempts. arrived home and has started three times various times but runs very rough. could it possibly be the head gaskets? Never heard of both going at the same time.
Check the color of your oil if its like milky then yep it would be head gasket i guess replacing both is the way to go as its hard to determine if both are good or not. maybe the dealer was aware already of this prob.
