  2. Differentials
    I have a limited slip diff in my Thunderbird, but the other day i was sliding and when i had spun around and slowed a lot suddenly it started 1 wheel peeling. I let off the gas and my limited slip diff came back but why did it cut out for that second? Is that how these are built or are the...
  3. 4R70W Transmissions
    I have a 1996 Thunderbird with a v8. Between 2-3 and 3-4 when i ease off the throttle during a shift the whole car shutters for a second, as if its going over a sudden bumpy road. Yet at the same time it never shifts hard or slips, not even at higher rpm. My mileage is 217k but the car runs like...
  4. Audio / Electronics
    I'm in the possession of an 89 Thunderbird with the 3.8, and it has no brake lights or power going to the brake lights when the pedal is pushed. I also believe it has a bad dimmer switch as when the light fuse is in the corner lights stay on, but while trying to make sense of the wiring, and...

  7. Engine - 4.6L & 5.4L
    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...
  8. Newbie Forum
    Well. Two days after I bought this damn thing, the engines knocking. No clue what to do. Need to know If there would be anyone available from the North East Kansas area to help me swap it.

  9. 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...

  12. Exterior
    After 25 years I am not surprised my splash shields are broken and brittle. Anyone know where I can get replacements from? I saw them on ROCK AUTO but they are out of stock on one side. I have seen used ones on the TBSC SHOP site and just seemed a bit pricier compared to how much Rock Auto had...
  13. Interior
    My 1997 Thunderbird has an ashtray in it and I have recently bought a cupholder for it so I could change it out. The cupholder is brown while the rest of the interior is black. My three questions about this are: 1. Where can I buy paint for my cupholder that will match the interior? 2. Outside...
  14. Engine - 3.8L & 4.2L
    93 thunderbird nat-aspirated 3.8 here... Anybody know the exact voltage for this bird? Just put a new Tps sensor on... runs better, but still sputtering & stalling. The sensor doesn't have much play where the bolts go to adjust it. I know the SC is sitting at about 0.93V idle. Anybody know...
  15. 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...

    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...
