there is an information tag on the core support under the hood. on my brother's '94 cougar, i would imagine its the same for tbirds, there was a vin tag on the rear bumper, but i can't remember the exact location
There are also tabs on each side of the body if you remove the Fenders they are underneath.
Ive also seen VIN for a Mark on the Rear decklid / back window area - they dont have the vin under the fenders like the Birds.
There are marks that are only possible to be found by cutting the unibody open in the right spot. If it comes to that, they usually send the guy who know where out to do the looking.
There is supposedly a list of locations for every car after OBDC2, which also has the vin in the eec. That includes my MN12, but not all.
When I rebuilt my Black Cougar from being totaled, I had to list the vin number of every car I removed a major piece from. That included the upper and lower control arm, exhaust, gas tank... minor repair parts, really.
If I had failed to mention the rebuilt thing to the JY guys, I would not have gotten the paperwork needed (with vins) to get the safety department to issue me tags.
There is a sticker in the driver's doorjamb that is required for my car to be legal; when they pull me for speeding, they ask to see the sticker.
I think this is a good thing, really; If someone steals one of my babys, I want his nuts in a vice. :zdevil:
Hey guys. I'm in Ohio, in a county that has e check, emissions checking. Anyway, I took my car for test so I can renew my registration and they told me that the probes they use for the exhaust could not get a reading. So, they would not pass me. Said there is a "sample dilution" and could be...
I don't use the washers much at all, but the other day, I found that the drivers side only came up the window about 1/2 way, with a lot of fluid. I took the cowl panel part way off and ran it and saw there were no leaks in the hoses or fittings. I removed everything and took the nozzle and blew...
OK, first .... I apologize for this moving around. I was thinking "Interior" or "Electronics" ..... then tonight as I was prepping to post regarding my final "fix" .... I noticed the "General Tech" section and upon further review, I think it belongs here so here is where I brought it. :cool:
So I’ve searched the forums, tried solutions to anything remotely close to sounding like my issue, and I’m having no luck.
So we bought our first Thunderbird! Test drove it, loved it, car seemed to be mechanically sound. Well less than an hour into owning it the car decided it doesn’t want to...
When we upgraded our PCV system, we touched upon this subject, and the features/benefits of positive oil control, pressure differentials, inductance, reluctance, Bernoulli, Charles and Boyle, and fluid dynamics/kinetics.
All good stuff, a bit much for my 18YO, but he was into it when he realized...
