    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.

  • 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
  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright CaliforniaPosts: 45,050
    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.
  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright CaliforniaPosts: 45,050
    No, it would be an incredible dog without a turbo. You wouldn't want to drive it.

    Hey SVTbird,

    My father and I did the same type of swap a couple of years ago. We took an 89 Thunderbird SC, took out the Supercharged V6 and put in a 95 Mark8 motor. It was kinda funny that the car didn't get any lower with the new motor in it and stock V6 SC springs. (have since put in high performance struts and springs) Had to put in the automatic that came with the motor, this would be so much better with a stick, but it is still a very fun car. (as you know!) Surprises a lot of people, and my friends love this thing.

  • a week ago mt car stalled suddenly. one hour later it ran again. i changed the dist. and all related parts there in, the coil and the computer inside the car passenger side. it runs for about ten min. then suts off. there are no check engine codes held in the computer. what should i do next? joe
  • I just bought a 1993 thunderbird with a 5.0L V-8. But it only has around 200 hp. What kind of parts can I putin to make my engine more powerfull? Where can I look to get parts?
    Thanks,
    Chris
  • Hi I have a 1991 super coupe and I have a ? about the power steering pump auxillary pressure switch. mine is leaking brake fluid and the dealer wants over 100 hundred bucks for one. I was woundering if anybody could tell me what its function is and could it be by passed thank you. mike
  • if it is actual power steering pressure switch you can take it out. But the computer uses it to watch the pressure might set a code for it don't know if will turn your check engine light on some things that the computer reads are not as impotant so they won't kick the light on
  • I would check the fuel pump. They will run until they get hot and then sieze up until they cool. Just one of many possibilities.

  • Cars that fuel pumps in the tank your not to run them past 1/4 of a tank the gas is what cools the pump.
  • Anything a 5.0L mustang uses you can use on the motor.
  • my son has a 1989 ford thunderbird. he drove home parked took shower went back outside toleave and the car started ran fine just would not shift out of park like it was froze up. can you give me a guess on what might have occured and how do we fix it.
