Is this a Crown Victoria with a V8 4.6L? Or do you have something else?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Yes, it is a V8 4.6, not 3.8.

Basically, you'll need to remove the dash to access the heater plenum. Once the heater plenum is loosened from the firewall, and the heater hoses are removed from the heater core under the hood, you'll be able to access the door that holds the heater core in the plenum.

OK, sounds difficult. How much can I expect to pay at a shop?
Expert:  lamontgomery replied 8 years ago.

You are looking at about 7.0 hours of labor plus 100.00 in parts (heater core and coolant). It's not a bad job to do, just a bit time consuming, the second one is always easier. So if your labor rate is $100/hr, roughly $800.
