Question about 1994 Ford Crown Victoria

1 Answer

How much would it take to fix/change out the freeze plug in a 1994 Ford Crown Victoria? I believe that is what is wrong with the car I have now. I know I have to remove the engine from the bell housing? What is an estimate of the costs of taking it in and getting all that done?

The book rate for the freeze plugs is 0.5hrs labor for the 1st & 0.04hrs for each additional. That does not include the time needed to gain access to them. I'd estimate you're looking at around 5hrs minimum for access time.

I wouldn't be able to give you a "cost" estimate as I don't know what the garage would charge you labor rate wise. I know dealerships are up over $100us an hour.

Antifreeze leaking from rear of 4.6 liter engine in 1994 Crown Victoria

Will be coming from either bad freeze plug(s) [most likely], a heater hose that is dripping so that it is running off the back side of the engine, or a leaking intake manifold that is located such that it is running off the back side.

How do you tune up a 1993 ford crown victoria

All you really have is the spark plugs and spark plug wires, I believe your car doesn't have a cap and rotor to replace, just coil packs, which really isn't something you replace when you do a tune up. I would also replace the fuel filter and check the air filter. Make sure you change 1 wire at a time, so they don't get put back on wrong.

I have a pretty bad water leak behind the engine in my '94 Crown Victoria. Could it be intake manifold, freeze plug, or heater core?

Well, yes, the leak that you describe could from any of those areas, but not likely the heater core. Heater core leaks totally fog out windshield...

More likely causes are cracked coolant hoses, take a mirror and look around. If you do not find the leak, you need to add pressure, it should show up...
