    So I started this with my 97 cougar xr-7 with the 4.6. Car has a prob 200k on it. I just did a filter kit with fresh mercon v. All went smooth. No leaks. Before the filter kit I started getting weird shifts. Mostly just 1-2 but reverse felt awful and sometimes 2-3 would be hard shift also. I...

    Are there Camshafts that pass California smog? And work good with a NPI engine, stock everything besides a dual 2.5in exhaust with x-pipe? Im just not trying to have to take the cams in n out for smog but if I have to then oh well worth asking the question.

    Hey everyone, I have a 97 tbird 4.6L 108,500 miles. Every so often I’ll get this weird idle where the rpm needle will go up and down while the car is parked. I’ve replaced the idle air control valve along with the gasket not too long ago so I’m confident that’s not the issue. Maybe the throttle...
  5. Exhaust
    Has anyone tried using a set of longtubes from an F-150 with the 4.6? found some for sale and was wondering if maybe they would go in without any modifications.
  6. Exhaust
    About a day ago I started getting a really bad stumble, felt like a misfire. Came to the conclusion it was a clogged catalytic converter, rotten eggs smell and the spark plugs were bad only on one side of the engine. So in conclusion, they're coming off :) I had been planning on getting an...

    Hello fellow 1997 Thunderbird owner here I will be heading to the junkyard later this week to pull a 4.6l DOHC engine out of a 97 Lincoln mark VIII. Is there anything else I should take that is hard to find or that I may need? wiring? etc?

    I have a 97 lx with a 3.8 that’s super mint which is absolutely slow. here recently I got my hands on a 95 lx with a 4.6 which is ratty looking all the interior is trashed so the goal is to pull the engine, trans, wiring harness and computers, drive shaft, rear end, linkages for throttle and...
  11. Stick Transmission Swaps
    I have a 95 Merc xr7 with the 4.6 with I believe is a F1AE or the F2VE casting. I also have an M5r2 from a 300 I6 out of a 96 f150. Will this unit work on the 4.6? If not, what do I need to look for?
  12. Engine - 4.6L & 5.4L
    Started this morning went to get gas and wouldn't start. When I turn the key, fan turns on and lights work, no cracking of the engine. Waited an hour and half for a tow truck and when guy goes to tow it, he started it right up. Drove it back home, turned it off and tried starting again and...

    So a guy says he has a early thunderbird motor. From alternator location it is a modular motor.. How can I tell if it's a 94&95 motor or a 96&97 one and are they interchangeable. Thanks a bunch for any info.

    I just found on a market place a 1997 mustang motor and t56 transmission. Now I'm not interested in a standard transmission ( well maybe but not now) I am writing on here cause I think I may have my final plan for a motor completely done. With a non-boost and a boosted plan. First I would get...
  15. Engine - 4.6L & 5.4L
    I recently bought a very rust free 1996 Thunderbird lx 4.6. I know the engine is in good condition for up at 180k the transmission is a little worse for wear. And the interior seems to be kinda the worst thing, but not biggest concern. But I have been trying to haveing a stable argument with my...

    It's the first time I've ever replaced sparkplugs (myself) on my 95 Thunderbird LX 4.6L V8 and I got a surprise when I pulled out the first sparkplug. It's a Motorcraft AWSF 44PP. And it does look a little different than the SP-493 platinum sparkplugs that Advance Auto sold me. After doing some...
  17. Suspension
    I have a 1996 4.6L T-Bird LX with the Sport Option suspension package (upgraded suspension components and wheels). I am under the impression that the rear shocks are different from the standard T-Bird shocks. I had them replaced about a year ago at the dealer, but I didn't notice anything...

    I am a new member and am just learning my way around the site. I have a 96 TBird with a v6 engine. My plans were to begin an engine swap next summer but I got a pleasant surprise when, as I was driving to my grand daughters lacross game, the engine heated up and I think warped a head. I was...

    What's up Guys and Gals? I first saw this car when I was 15 years old (2000) when my folks brought it to KFC where I worked. I fell in love with these cars cause Dad drove one as an investigator. I put a lot of time and love in this car and drove it like I stole it. I traded her in around 2005...
