My sons 83 crown vic

The throttle body is basically a single large injector, and it could have burned out its solenoid. It is controlled by a brainbox that uses the distributor input, temp sensor input, throttle position input, etc., so there are many possible problems.
The best way is to let someone put it on a diagnostic machine unfortunately.

Where is the fuel filter

The fuel filter is located in front of the right rear tire along the fuel line. It looks cylindrical and will have a clip holding the fuel line on the filter.

How to change spark plugs

Those are as easy as they come these days. Mark each spark plug wire with a piece of tape with the cylinder # written on it, so as not to mix up the wires. Remove each spark plug wire by firmly grasping the wire by the boot (do not pull on the wire) and twist it back and forth a few times while pulling slowly. It should pop off without a great deal of effort. If it is seized and it breaks, you will have to replace the wire, or at the very least replace the terminals (if you can get some). Use an air hose and blow around the base of each spark plug to dislodge any loose dirt that could fall into the cylinders (not absolutely necessary, but a good idea). Remove each spark plug with a spark plug socket and extension and ratchet (I forget which size socket, it's either 5/8 or 13/16). Check the gaps of each new spark plug (typically around 0.035 in). re-install each new spark plug by hand (do not cross-thread them) and once you have ensured that the plug is threaded in properly, tighten the plug until it seats, and then tighten an additional 1/16 of a turn. Repeat this for the remaining plugs. Re-install wires to the corresponding spark plugs. You're done!

Car starts and runs fine then after 30 min or so runs rough

Check the primary and secondary resistance on your coil and resistance and gap on your spark plugs. Sounds like you have a high temp foul out.

Hi....I have a 1983 Ford crown vickey wagon with a

Every time I run into a starter problem the first thing I check is where the wire meets the battery terminal for corrosion and of course the grounds.

It could be a fuel pump problem. If it isn't working correctly the engine is having to siphon fuel from the tank to the carburetor in the morning, which takes forever. The longer it sets, the fuel will eventually go back to the tank.

How do i repalce a fuel pump in a 1983 ford crown

There's no way to get to it through the top (unless you remove the rear seat and cut a hole where the center of the backrest is). You'll have to either drop the tank, or the rear axle.

Oil leak front seal

For the seal to leak it must be either worn out..come out.. or the engine compression is so great that is the first place it comes from as the breather pipe could be bunged up and this will alow the gaskets to leak also ,so check out the breather first and compression {or lack of}

There is a chance the water it' been burn by the car . It's posible that a internal leak between the Intake manifold gasket or the head gasket going thruogh the combustion chamber.
A good idea will be to perform a radiator pressure test to determine that, also you can have your sparkplugs inspected for signs of an abnormal condition, sometimes they can tell you a lot.
