Thereis a transmission module i believe, and that tells it when to shift. if they didn't have them in that year model, then a vacuum line will also cause that

Why my 2007 police crown Vic won't shift out of


All 2000 and up vehicles utilize a Solenoid which is powered by depressing the Brake Pedal to allow the Shift Lever to be move from Park to any other position. Is the Shift Lever located on the Steering Column or the Floor? In either case typically the Solenoids used by Ford do occasionally go bad. I highly recommend having a certified technician replace the solenoid.

I have a 1999 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor with a bad transmission. Will any transmission from a 1999 or 2000 Crown Vic. or Grand Marquis work as a replacement?


MOST INTERCEPTER CARS, MEAN THEY HAVE AN ADDED GEAR IN THE TRANSMISSION! WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING IS GOING TO A TRANSMISSION WITHOUT THAT EXTRA GEAR! TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION: YES YOU CAN REPLACE IT WITH A REGULAR TRANSMISSION! YOU JUST WON'T BE ABLE TO CHASE BURGLARS! HAHA

I put a 1997 4.6 police intercepter engine in a 92 crown vic but i am having problems with wiring. what should I do or what can I do


you need to describe the problems.

The engine computer may not be compatible with this engine. It may require the PCM from a police intercepter vehicle. Do you have the calibration code from the vehicle the engine came out of?

Most of the sensors and actuators are the same for police and regualr car for the same model year. You probably need a wirng diagram book for a 1992 and a 1997 so you can compare.

I may have one or both. If yes, I would sell fro $7 each plus $2 shipping each. Let me know and I will look.

Does the crown vic police intercepter take as much oil as the regular crown vic? (when changing the oil and filter)


I ~think~ the 1999 is the same as the 2000 (mine is a 2000 P71)

The 2000 CVPI (Crown Vic Police Interceptor) owners manual recommends the following:

Engine Oil - Motorcraft SAE 5W-30 Super Premium Motor Oil 5.0 quarts

Transmission Fluid - Motorcraft Mercon V ATF 13.9 quarts (fluids Mercon & Mercon V are NOT INTERCHANGEABLE, DO NOT MIX)

Fuel Tank - 19.0 gallons

Break Fluid - DOT 3


Rear Axle Lubricant - Motorcraft 80W-90 Premium Rear Axle Lubricant 3.75 pints (add 4 oz of Additive Friction Modifier C8AZ-19B546-A or equilavent meeting Ford Spec. EST-M2C118-A for complete refill of Traction-Lok Rear Axles)

Engine Data - 4.6L V8 Engine
Cubic Inches - 281
Required Fuel - 87 Octane
Firing Order - 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8
Spark Plug Gap - 1.3-1.4 mm (0.052-0.056 inch)
Ignition System - Coil On Plug
Compression Ratio - 10.0:1

I hope this helps!

1996 ford crown vic police model hard shifting


Do you have a check engine light on? The line pressure is too high in the transmission. This is either from a bad epc solenoid in the transmission or the computer commanding the pressure high from a bad MAF. If you have a bad MAF you should have other MAF (Mass Airflow Sensor) codes in the computer.
