Shouldn't be a problem. I have diagrams for the Crown Victoria which is the exact same engine and year. Email me at and I can get these right to you.

4 Wheel drive (Manual trans) not engaging

First, IF your vehicle has a true manual-engage for the 4-wheel drive, then you either have a linkage that needs adjusted, or there is a problem inside the transfer-case (ie- broken shift-lever, broken chain, or loose gear, depending on which metod of drive it has (they WERE gear-to-gear, in my 1981 Isuzu, which means no chain to break...)
OR- if your vehicle has the same system of activation on the 4-wheel drive, as the Chevrolets of that era (Isuzu and Chevrolet were together and may still be), it's probably a vacuum problem. See, there is a vacuum-pot that pulls the cable to actuate (lock-in) the front-axle, using vacuum from a line on the transfer-case (vacuum that comes from the engine). IF there is a hole in any of the lines &/or if the vacuum-pot itself has a hole in it, then your 4-wheel drive linkage (on the front-axle) WON'T be pulled-in, so it won't engage, at all. This happened to me in my 2000 ZR2 during a snow-storm! It clicked, but wouldn't engage.
Go online or get a reference-manual from Oreilly's, Autozone, etc. to see how your system is actually actuated.
If it is manually actuated, then look for a linkage or a line that needs adjusted (HOPE it's not inside the case!) or IF it is vacuum actuated, then you can test it by starting the engine and spraying all the lines and the vacuum-pot with WD40 or other aerosol, to see if the engine revs- which will tell you where the problem (leak) is.
Either way, GOOD luck!

How to take transmission out of 1997 plymouth voyager

these are extremely difficult but here's the overview.

support on stands after loosening the axle nuts. You'll need to loosen the lower ball joints, tie rod ends, wheels, loosen the strut mounts to be able to remove then enough to allow the strut to be pulled out to get the axles free. Some people just remove the axle shaft from the transaxle not the wheel, I prefer to get the entire axle(s) out of my way to allow me freedom to work & I also don't like to damage parts, out of the way is safer & allows you to inspect them.

The engine needs to be supported from overhead, the trans needs to be lowered once trans mount, torque converter, starter, bellhousing bolts, braces & lines & linkage & electrical connections are removed.

I hope this gives you the overview, you would need a manual specifically for that vehicle if you want the exact step-by-step instructions.

I've done this myself, I usually work alone & it's not too bad of a job, just takes time & persistence. I remember needing to lower & tilt the engine a bit to actually get the trans in position to back off of the engine.

Good Luck

97 lincoln continental auto trans wont shift out of first gear

Most common causes of your problem are the following:
  1. Low transmission fluid
  2. Old/brown transmission fluid
  3. Broken transmission line (any pools of trans fluid on the ground?)
  4. Broken transmission vacuum line
  5. Transmission needs adjustment
  6. Transmission itself needs repair
The first 3 can be checked visually, the last 3 most likely need a mechanic to verify.

Vacuum leak in dash- 97 areostar..

The leak is from the Vacuum Motors on the Air Distribution Box for the Climate Control system. Please go back to your transmission and check it for Trans Fluid in the Vacuum line going to the Trans Vacuum Module. The Module will be on passenger's side of trans near the Trans Pan, there may be a shield covering it. Pull the line off the module & see if fluid comes out

Hard shifting 1997 Lincoln continental

You should check for a vacuum line or no vacuum condition at the modulator valve. Under acceleration there is low vaccum at the modulator so the trans thinks your are trying to pass, once you have achieved the upshift speed, a higher RPM than normal the care will shift hard. The service manual can show where to look for this valve. Hope it helps.

97 dodge 2500 4x4 will not engage

On the axle there is a vacuum Actuator that engages a collar on the axle that engages the four wheel drive if the axel splines are worn or havent been lined up they will get burred and won't allow the collar to line up. You can remove the actuator and see the splines and determine if they need to be fixed.
