Question about Mercury Grand Marquis

9 Answers

I have a 1995 grand marquis Ls I power washed around the oil pan. When I was done I found a washer that looked like a snap ring on the ground. The od is 1 9/16 INCH. THE ID APROX 1 IN. The id has tabs that makes it look like a snap ring of some kind. it appears to be solid like a regular washer on the diameter. There are no holes that you would put a snap ring tool into to install. Can you tell me what it came off of so I can replace it before something falls apart.

Hi,

Does it look something like the image below?
I have a 1995 grand - b6cc8b7.jpg
If no, pls reference this page or this to identify.

If yes, then form initial appearance, said washer is general purpose and could and would be used in most big bolts. It could be the lockwasher for:

  • engine mount/support;
  • or any of the numerous bolts that it would fit.
Chances are that it was left there inadvertently by somebody who worked in your engine during your last repair work. There is no way that it would fall out on its own not unless the bolt that is inserted to has likewise fallen of.

Pls check if you are likewise missing a bolt.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I recomend try to show at any Autopart store. Or autorepair shop. Because if I can't see it. Is impossible to know exactly where they come. Maybe just was left in the engine. for an other guy. or mechanic.

Or you can send a picture. to try located the posistion of the washer. If is Aluminum or plastic. Is for the oil drain plug.

I hope this help on your question.

I hav 2000 grand marqius ls - When I changed spark plog thei found engine oil on it particularly cylinder No. 3 and 4 that the car was Shaking before I change the spark


When you get oil into the cylinders that are side by side, you may have a bad head gasket or bad stem seals on the valves. When all 4 cylinders on that side of the engine are oil-covered you can have additional problems like bad piston rings.

You should have a compression test to determine what the condition of the rings is before removing a head. If the compression is good, a good mechanic may be able to change the Valve seals without a complete teardown. If not, the problem must be fixed by pulling the bad head.

Whole in oil pan how do i fix


Rather than buying new oil pan, if you drain oil, remove oil pan, take it to local welding shop they can most likely weld/patch it. They can not weld it if not taken off ( fire problem) but personally what I would do is search junk yards or you pull it and replace whole oil pan, might be more effective and cheaper in the long run.

In order to remove the P/S Gear Pitman Shaft Lower Seal where the Pitman arm is attached on a 1995 chevy G10 van , can the seal be removed from the outside by just removing the Pitman arm or does the gear...


Once you have the arm removed (use a puller made for that) You need to remove the c clip retainer. Many times you can loosely install the arm, put it back on the ground and with a catch pan under it, just quickly turn the wheel and pressure will drive the seals out. If that does not work, you can use long self tapping screws and put one into each side of the seal and pull it free. Most i've seen always have two seals separated by a steel flat washer. To re-install, you need to carefully drive the seal back in using a piece of pipe or anything that fits and does not damage it. I have special tools I made long ago to do that but the trick is to be careful not to get the seal too far in on any one side and to not damage it in any way. Likely someone makes an install tool. Make note of the order of the seals as you remove them and make a reference mark on the arm and shaft so you can get back together the same way it was.

What is the tire size for a 1995 Mercury Marquis?


On Firestone's site it says for a 1995 Grand Marquis with the handling package, the tire size is P225/60R16 with or without the TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system).

For a 1995 Grand Marquis GS/LS with or without TPMS it says the tire size is P215/70R15.

The page I entered in the info is here:
