SOURCE: Ford Crown Vic p0300 random cylinder misfire

take a look at the EGR valve it could be either vacum controlled or electronic either way what seems to be the problem is that the valve is stuck in the open position until the engine warms up you can gently tap the egr valve with a small hammer or a screw driver and you can see that it runs smooth, now if the egr valve is vacum controlled replace the valve. if it is electronoc controlled replace the valve and the module for the egr valve.

SOURCE: bad coil pack on crown vic

well if you have checked the spark plugs and they look good then its probly the coil If the plugs have never been replaced i would start with a tune up and see if this fixes the problem. If not there is no good way for you to test it you would need a computer to hook up to the car

Duraspark Type Plug Wires
The spark plug wires used with the Duraspark type ignition system are 5 / 16 in. (8mm) in diameter to contain the higher output voltage. There are two types of wires used in this system, and some engines may have both types installed. It is important to properly identify the type of wire used for each cylinder before replacements are made.

Both types are blue in color and have silicone jacketing. The insulation material underneath the jacketing on some plug wires is a silicone layer separated by glass braid. The plug cable not incorporating the silicone layer is used where engine temperatures are cooler and are identified with the letter SE with black printing. The plug cables with the silicone insulation are used where high engine temperatures are present. These cables are identified with the letters SS with white printing.
Each spark plug cable, if original, is marked with the cylinder number, model year and date of cable manufacture (quarter and year). Service replacement wires will not have cylinder numbers, or manufacture date.

On any vehicle equipped with a catalytic converter, never allow the engine to run for more than 30 seconds with a spark plug wire disconnected. Unburned fuel in the cylinder may ignite in the converter as it is exhausted and damage the converter.

When removing spark plug wires, mark and tag the individual wires. Grasp, then slowly, twist the insulator back and forth on the spark plug to free the insulator. Do not pull on the wire directly as it may become separated from the connector inside the insulator. Special tools are available which can help ease plug wire removal, and prevent damage to a cable.

When installing a new set of spark plug wires, replace the wires one at a time so there will be no confusion. Start by replacing the longest wire first. Route the wire exactly the same as the original.

Okay I have a 2004 ford crown turn signals don't work when I turned the turn signal stick to the right abs and brake light comes on and traction control don't work

I just recently had that problem on one of our '03 Crown Vics and we had to change out the wiring.

First, I took off the panels below the steering wheel and seen that a bunch of the wires that go to the multi-function switch we exposed because they were scraping against the metal shield. Tried repairing the wires. Worked for about 10 minutes and the problem came back.

Next I changed the switch thinking it may have burnt out do to the exposed wires touching. That didn't work.

So thats when we decided to replace the wiring, which fixed the problem. The wires further down the lines melted together due to the exposed wires touching.

My gas guage isnt working in my 1989 crown it definetly the float in the tank or could it be something else?

It is improbable that it is the float, more likely the wiper that is connected to the float, or the resistance windings/circuit that the wiper runs across. Access to this is on the top of the fuel tank. The gauge could also be faulty or there could be a bad connection on the panel PC board behind the dash.

easy to change. don't buy a used part it may develop the same problem after a little while. you can try cleaning the wire inside with brake cleaner (not intake cleaner). it may or may not help.
