SOURCE: 96 ford crown vic over heating
it seems you have to seperate issues here. fiirst let's start withtthe over heating. you stated that you have replaced the pump,thermosta,fan,clutch,all the hoses, and core. now my question to you is did you route the belt so it's circulating like it should? is it steaming out from under the hood? to be quite honest the vehicle should not even be close to overheating after driving only 3 miles. there is a possibilty that you have a bad sending unit for the temp if it is not steaming out from under the hood. your upper radiator hose is hot this tells you that the thermostat is operating as it should. the fan should be turning clock wise as you are looking at it from the front of the vehicle.when you fill the system with coolant make sure that you have the heater on high and to the hot setting. check to make open sure you have plenty of coolant and that the radiator is free of dirt and bugs.. now as far as not having anyheat in the vehicle check the fuse for your climate control. look under the dash and make sure you hooked all the cables for your fresh air door and blend door. when you changed the core did you connect the hoses in the right place?after you have checked all the hoses and the coolant is as full as can be and the heat is turned on to max ,keep the radiator cap off and start the vehicle wait for it to get hot check the upper radiator hose to see when the thermo stat opens you should see that the coolant should go down in the radaitor. do these things and check back with me on the results...please rate this help...thanks

SOURCE: leaking freezer plugs
Hello and thanks for the question...I'll try to help.
Freeze plugs are cheap and CAN NOT be reused. You'll need to buy some new ones. They are press fit. When installing them ONLY TAP ON THE OUTER EDGE......not in the center, you'll collapse them if you do.there is no sealant required when installing them.
there are also after market rubber plugs for those tough to reach frost plug holes you can buy. they are inserted and then you tighten a bolt to spread the rubber to seal the hole. I've seen then here in Canada in a red and white package, the name on the product is "HELP" .......they also provide things like window winder handles door panel clips etc....... i did a Google search on them with no luck though.
If there is nothing else wrong with your car i would definitely repair the frost plug problem............its an inexpensive repair and definitely cheaper than buying another car.
Hope this helps,....good luck!

The fuel filter is located under the vehicle on the inner side of the left (driver side) frame rail.
Should look like the image below:

I replaced the same part on a 1994 Crown Vic. There are a few bolts which go through rubber mounts on the firewall and that is how the wiper motor fits against the firewall. There is a clip on the wiper drive that must be pressed and slid off the wiper shaft. The hardest part was getting clearence between the engine and wiper motor. If I remember there was a way to turn the wiper case to clear the engine. I have asked myself why this was engineered like this? There is nothing important in the way that 3/4" of clearance could have been given for removal.
