Question about 1990 Ford LTD Crown Victoria
Well, I am good to go till fall, but then I will need good heat. The cars runs very cool in the summer, which is great. But, last winter I blocked of 50% of the radiator to try to get some heat. That did help a bit but not really very well. I owned a twin to this car and it had super heat! When I touch the heater hoses, they get pretty warm. The car does have a new Fail Safe thermostat, and I can hear the vacuum door moving when moved from cold to hot. It does have ATC which really complicates the problem, I think There is a vacuum operated unit in the heater hose itself. I never fooled with that yet. Any ideas? You are a GURU, so I bet you can guide me in the right direction! Again, thanks for help with the pulley issue!!! John A.
Well lets just start at the beginning the thermostat failsafe thermostats are great no doubt and not to cheap but what you need is a new 195 degree thermostat if your car was built in the south it may have had a 190 from the factory 195 is universal for north to south buy a good one not a cheap one or you will pay later the failsafe can also get cocked around a little letting the radiator overcool let me know if this helps
