You'll need to raise the engine to replace the oil pan. Take the trans./converter loose, remove the engine mounts, wiring, fuel line, and anything else that could be a problem with raising the engine. You can use 2 6 x 6's and place under the engine mounts and rest the engine on these. This should provide you with room to drop the pan.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the oil pan.
  3. Remove the oil pump inlet tube and screen assembly.
  4. Unfasten the oil pump attaching bolts, then remove the oil pump gasket and the intermediate shaft.
To install:
  1. Prime the oil pump by filling the inlet and outlet ports with engine oil and rotating the shaft of pump to distribute it.
  2. Position the intermediate driveshaft into the distributor socket.
  3. Place a new gasket on the pump body and insert the intermediate driveshaft into the pump body.
  4. Install the pump and intermediate shaft as an assembly.


WARNING Do not force the pump if it does not seat readily. The driveshaft may be misaligned with the distributor shaft. To align, rotate the intermediate driveshaft into a new position.
  1. Install and tighten the oil pump attaching screws to:

    2.3L Engine: 12-15 ft. lbs. (16-20 Nm) 5.0L Engine: 22-32 ft. lbs. (30-43 Nm)
  2. Install the oil pan.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable, then start the engine and check for leaks.



On the 3.8...

The oil pump is mounted in the front cover assembly. Oil pan removal is necessary for pick-up tube/screen replacement or service.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle on jackstands.
  3. Drain the engine oil, then remove the oil filter.
  4. If necessary, remove the oil cooler.
  5. Unfasten the oil pump-to-front cover retaining bolts, then remove the pump from the front cover.
  6. Lift the two pump gears from their mounting pocket in the front cover.
  7. Clean all gasket mounting surfaces.
  8. Inspect the mounting pocket for wear. If excessive wear is present, complete timing cover assembly replacement is necessary.
  9. Inspect the cover/filter mounting gasket-to-timing cover surface for flatness. Place a straightedge across the flat and check the clearance with a feeler gauge. If the measured clearance exceeds 0.004 in. (0.10mm), replace the cover/filter mount. Replace the pump gears if wear is excessive.
To install:
  1. Lightly pack the gear pocket with petroleum jelly or coat all gear surfaces with Oil Conditioner D9AZ-19579-CA or equivalent, then install the the pump gears in the cover pocket. Make sure the petroleum jelly fills all voids between the gears and pockets.


WARNING Failure to properly coat the oil pump gears may result in failure of the pump to prime when the engine is started.
  1. Position the pump body O-ring seal and install the pump body to the front cover using alignment dowels on the front cover.
  2. Tighten the pump retaining bolts as follows
    1. For vehicles through 1993, tighten the M8 bolts to 18-22 ft. lbs. (25-30 Nm) and the M10 bolts to 30-40 ft. lbs. (40-55 Nm).
    2. For 1994-96 vehicles, tighten the four smaller bolts to 15-22 ft. lbs. (20-30 Nm) and the two larger retaining bolts to 6-11 ft. lbs. (8-15 Nm).

  3. If removed, install the engine oil cooler. Install the oil filter.
  4. Carefully lower the vehicle, then refill the engine crankcase with the correct type and amount of engine oil.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable, then start the engine and check for leaks.

Changed spark plugs in 1993 ford thunderbird 3.8. now engine runs very rough..almost like it wants to stop running.


double check that you put in the right spark plugs. motorcraft and autolites work well. also make sure that you put the wires on in the proper order. you can find the firing order on line. one more thing is make sure that you didn't crack a spark plug putting them in. Oh and if one of your old plugs have what looks like a black crack in it you have bad wires.
