Hello, This is a tough problem to find when there are no Diagnostics. I suspect the problem is due to a term called "Heat Sink"

What this term means is that the engine compartment is getting hotter when the engine is just shut off, than when it is running. When the Tow truck moved your car, wind passed by while the Tow truck moved your vehicle. This helped cool it off regardless of when the car was towed.

A lot of times the heat shields on the Catalytic converters are rusted off. In a pursuit vehicle, they could have been knocked off. This means someone needs to look under your car to see what is missing.

The electric components like the Ignition module, coil, Relays, and fuel lines can be overheating.

Try opening your hood when you park your car at home and then go out shortly afterwards and try starting the car. If it helps, you need to find the component that is overheating and replace any missing heat shields.

I hope my solution is very helpful. You can also get FREE scans at Autozne, Advance, and Oreillys autoparts when you get a Code light.

To insert for what reason? The old ones should be colour coded so you get ones of the same colour, Also look on the fusebox cover for details.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

at the end of rhe spark plug wires.

The spark plug wires are those long black whatchamacallits that you see on top of the big thing that makes your car go.

First lift the thingy and prop it up with that long metal stick.

Crown vic's are notorious for transmission trouble. Even when they are rebuilt they are never the same again.

Have someone you trust shut the trunk with you in it with a good flashlight and have them use a garden hose to run water all around the trunk where the gasket is supposed to seal it. You should be able to see where it drips from and then determine how it gets there. A damaged seal is most likely.
