Well, here we are, with a new wrinklle....it's a good thing you gave us the diagrams and directions for all those T-Bird engines, because, apparently, this car rolled off the assembly line late in the year and that last diagram really pertained more to this particular car, it's a 4.6L overhead-cam V8 but is made more like a '96 than a '95...weird, but's that how it seems.....anyway, looks like we got the wrong part and we never would have known unless we asked you in the first place!

 

Ayn other advice at this time? Thanks.

 

Oh, and an aside.....did they put dsome sort of governor or speed limiter on the civilan model so it throttles down over a certain speed? I always noted that it would do so at 104 mph, and I am pretty sure it's the same engine they used on police Crown Vic's.

Expert:  Scott W. replied 3 years ago.

Do you need a diagram for a 1996? I wasn't aware the sensors were different.

 

Yes the computers had a vehicle speed limiter, the police models did not, the engines are real close, the cams I believe are different along with a few other items, I know when you ask for parts in parts room they are always asking police package or not..
