  2. Drive Train
    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...
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  6. Engine - 4.6L & 5.4L
    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...
  7. 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...
  8. Engine - 4.6L & 5.4L
    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...
  9. 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...
