    HI I just bought a 96 t-bird with a 3.8 v6 it has factory headers and dual exhaust. it also has GT emblems on it.i have never seen a GT t-bird and i have not seen a factory dual exhaust on a 3.8 has anybody else heard of this before
  • I have a 92 t-bird LX with a 5.0. I need front ABS sensors or a way to bypass them. Both of them have gone bad and it is causing a complete brake system failure. The parts are not made anymore as far as I can tell. If you can find them, they are VERY expensive. Does anybody have any ideas on how to beat this system. I don't drive in snow, so I really don't need ABS. Wouldn't mind just bypassing the abs system all together. Thanks.

    Have you tried pulling the relays for the ABS and/or disconnecting the wires to the ABS pump completely? They must be disableable since I've seen several not running ABS on the track.

    Can't figure out how to remove broken lens and replace. Need help.
  • I have a 90 T-bird w/ a 3.8 sc. All I need is a harmonic balancer to put it on the road. I can't seem to find one anywhere.
    BUMMER..... I'm just itching to see what it can do.

    Any suggestions?

    I have a mint condition 79 t-bird, the only thing that needs replacing is the lenses for the tail lights. I've looked high and low and as yet have come up with nothing.
  • I have a 95 T-Bird. When my taillight was broke my son-in-law went on E-Bay and got me one for $25.
  • I have gave my car a complete tune-up. When I am going up a hill I loose power. But on flat road it runs good.

    I am new to this site and i was wandering if you knew if a 5.0 will drop down into my car. It is a 88 Ford Thunderbird turbo coupe. My turbo went out and i cant afford a new on. I was just wanting to know the best rout to go. thanks

    If you can get someone to take it out for you, maybe a moonlighting mechanic on a weekend, your turbo can be shipped off and rebuilt and then re-installed. It certainly would cost way less than an engine conversion. Rebuilt turbos might only be $400 or so, + labor to R&R, so maybe what...4 hours? That's a lot cheaper than at least $3,000==$5,000 to do an engine swap

    Thanks. Is there any way to make the car run without the turbo for a little bit. It's my only means of transportation.
  • MrShift@EdmundsMrShift@Edmunds Posts: 43,641
    No, it would be an incredible dog without a turbo. You wouldn't want to drive it.
