    Is replacing a motor on a 1989 lincoln town car something I should even try doing? I can't even see the motor.. lol, Is it hard to replace?


    It can be complicated: 5.0L Engine
    1. Disconnect the negative, then the positive battery cable. Drain the crankcase and the cooling system into suitable containers.
    2. Drain and recycle the engine coolant.
    3. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure. NOTE: If your vehicle is equipped with air conditioning, refer to Section 1 for information regarding the implications of servicing your A/C system yourself. Only an MVAC-trained, EPA-certified, automotive technician should service the A/C system or its components. CAUTION
      Never open, service, or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. In addition, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
    4. Mark the position of the hood on the hinges and remove the hood. Disconnect the battery ground cables from the cylinder block.
    5. Remove the air intake duct and the air cleaner.
    6. Disconnect the upper radiator hose from the thermostat housing and the lower hose from the water pump. Disconnect the oil cooler lines from the radiator.
    7. Remove the bolts attaching the radiator fan shroud to the radiator. Remove the radiator. Remove the fan, belt pulley, and shroud.
    8. Remove the alternator bolts and position the alternator aside.

    how do you take off a intake manifold


    This is for the 4.6L motor...I'll post for the 5.0L and 5.8L....you didn't post your engine size so please pick the applicable motor:

    4.6L Engine
    CAUTION Fuel injection systems remain under pressure, even after the engine has been turned OFF. The fuel system pressure must be relieved before disconnecting any fuel lines. Failure to do so may result in fire and/or personal injury.

    1. If equipped with air suspension, the air suspension switch, located on the right-hand side of the luggage compartment, must be turned to the OFF position before raising the vehicle.
    2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    3. Drain the engine cooling system.
    4. Relieve the fuel system pressure as follows:
      1. Remove the fuel tank fill cap to relieve the pressure in the fuel tank.
      2. Remove the cap from the Schrader valve located on the fuel injection supply manifold.
      3. Attach Fuel Pressure Gauge T80L-9974-B or equivalent, to the Schrader valve and drain the fuel through the drain tube into a suitable container.
      4. After the fuel system pressure is relieved, remove the fuel pressure gauge and install the cap on the Schrader valve. Secure the fuel tank fill cap.
    5. Disconnect the fuel supply and return lines.
    6. Remove the windshield wiper governor (module).
    7. Remove the engine air cleaner outlet tube.
