Replacing fuel filler neck on 2000 Crown Vic

I need to install new filler neck.The only problem with it is the little spring loaded tab was damaged when someone tried to steal gas so they say I have to replace the whole filler neck assy.
Do I have to drop the tank?
Any thoughts or experience is welcome

Good news, no the tank doesn't have to come down. However, there needs to be less than 3/4 tank. Jack it up and set on a jack stand, remove the wheel, four screws housing to pipe, filler pipe sensing hose from filler pipe, screw retaining the cap, four retaining screws from filler pipe, screw from filler pipe retainer, slide into the tank until it can be rotated and pulled out through the fender. lube the tank grommet with clean oil and reverse the removal for install.

Take the steering column cover off and tap/hit the ignition barrel with suitable tool (small hammer)while twisting on key.It may be enough to loosen it so key comes out.You will have to remove steering column cover to swap with replacment barrel anyway .Get someone to turn steering wheel while tapping/hitting barrel as it could be the steering column lock pin thats jamming.good luck.

Head Restraints Each front seat is equipped with dual-post design front seat back head restraint (611A08). The front seat back head restraint is installed as follows:

  • It travels on dual posts which have notches to engage a spring-loaded catch in the guide.
  • The front seat back spring assembly retains the front seat head rest guide rod sleeve (610A16).
  • The front seat back head restraint is adjustable from its normal position to a raised position of approximately 25 mm (1 inch).
  • Pull up on the front seat back head restraint to raise it. Pushing down will return it to its normal position.

Removal
  1. Unscrew front seat head rest guide rod retainers (610A18).
  1. Pull up on front seat back head restraint (611A08). Compress foam in area of front seat head rest guide rod sleeves (610A16).
  1. Remove front seat back head restraint positioning springs. Pull front seat back head restraint up and out.

that's it right here^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ and the location is in the diagram above but you must check all the fuse/s first Google 1996 ford crown Victoria and download for free to your phone/computer that way you'll always have it then go to roadside emergencies and the passenger fuse box/power distribution box diagram under the hood are there and is needed for times when something happens on the road if your wipers stopped working because you tried to use them without clearing ice away or a big piece of ice got stuck in the cowl where the wipers are you blew the fuse if they work erratically or won't shut off or stop up on the window blocking your vision either the module shown above or the wiper transmission in the wiper motor has failed and must be replaced as a whole unit

heating core has been plumbed in wrong or most likely has a leak in the system, as you are smelling the antifreeze - seems to me like the antifreeze is not reaching the core, have you mistakenly plumbed the intake/out take the wrong way round?, this would cause the windows to fog up as the heat is being taken away fro the core rather than being taken into the heater core

96 ford crown vic over heating

Hello,
I have a 96 crown vic that keeps over heating. I replaced the theirmustat, water pump, heater core, fan clutch, plastic plenum, and all the hose's. When I turn on the heater no heat come's out. There is know coolant leaking any were, (that I can see). The radiator is farly new. I start the car and drive about 3 miles and then the temp gauge go's from cold to over heating. I have to stop after 10 miles and let the car cool down. Does any body have any idea why. If I take the radiator cap off, when the car is hot, it bubbles and over flows. So I know it is getting hot. I just don't under stand why. The only thing I can think is that its vapor locked or clogged. The hose going in to the radiator is hot and the hose coming out is warm so I don't think it is clogged.

Thanks for your help.

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

Side Mirrors

Side Mirrors will adjust side to side but not up and down.

Posted by on

Answer

  • Most Helpful of 1 Answers

There are two tiny motors in each mirror. one for up/down. One for side to side. They have jack screws (plastic) that fit into the motors.

You can manually put your hands on either side of the mirror and force adjust it. If you hear a ratcheting sound, the jack screws are OK. Then repeat with hands on top and bottom.

If you hear ratcheting and mirror stays where you stop it, that means one of the motors is bad. The motor assembly is available as a separate part.
