Ford says to flush the transmission through completely with Mercon V fluid. In other words, replace every drop of Mercon III fluid tha it came with, for Mercon V. You cannot get away with just dropping the pan and doing a service. That only removes about 6 quarts of fluid. That transmission holds about 15 quarts, so you have to use a flush machine to run it through. After you exchange all the fuid out for Mercon V, then it will take about 500 miles for the shudder to improve. And then Ford charges you $350 for a fluid change that doesn't help and just might destroy the tranny in a car that age. Ford has a bulletin on this, your torque converter is going out and it will only get worse. Just add some GM 'Limited Slip Additive' to your tranny, will work wonders. There are some transmission specific additives out there too, just haven't tried them myself. -motoman22
Pick up a tub of "Dr. Tranny Shudder Fix" it does work, and as it says on the package "instantly". I paid $6.99
1st, 2nd, drive, overdrive, and lock up ( that's in the torque converter )
Located on catalytic converter
They are under the car, just after the engine exhaust manifold.
Bank 2 is the drivers side of the engine on your Crown Victoria Sensor 1 is in the exhaust before it enters the catalytic converter ( upstream )
Bank 2 is the drivers side of the engine in your Ford Crown Victoria Sensor 2 would be in the exhaust after the catalytic converter ( downstream )
wats the max hp n torque u can get out a cvpi
Sorry, as far as I know there is no drain plug for the converter. According to the service manual, the drain plug is located on the converter assembly. Just looked at my spare transmission from the 93 Grand Marquis and I can see the plug on the converter assembly. Turning the assembly will rotate the drain plug to the converter housing access plug which is visible from under the vehicle. Hope this helps.
Bank 1 is the passenger side of the engine on your Ford Crown Victoria Sensor 1 would be in the exhaust close to the engine before the exhaust enters the catalytic converter
100-110 ft lbs. So shoot for 105
On a 2002 Ford Crown Victoria : Bank 2 is the drivers side of the engine Sensor 2 ( downstream sensor ) would be in the exhaust after the catalytic converter

Ford Crown Victoria was created in 1955.
For a 1991 Crown Victoria , 351 cubic inch / 5.8 liter V8 : According to my Chilton's Auto Repair Manual : ( 180 horsepower at 3600 RPM and 285 ft.lbs. torque at 2400 RPM )
Yes it can. But that means big bucks to repair the trans. Somewhere around $ 1500 to $ 2000. to rebuild it. Depends whats wrong, bands, clutch's, torque converter. Is it only first to 2nd, or is it all the shifts?
how many catalytic convertors does a 1997 Ford Crown Victoria 8 cylinder car have?
