Hi, Can anyone list the recalls for this period. My 1986 totally loses power at 25 mph and starts to shutter and will stall. Someone said a block item box was replace by the engine firewall.
Tune up, and replaced catylic converters. When at 25 mph I hear a loud whissle. Thanks

  • Hi Karen,
    Thanks for that info which I did not know and of course Ford never notifies the owners anyway. Strange thing is I had to repair the gas lines last month because of a leak and the FI was sucking in air throught them. I was hoping this was my problem, but it did not. Cheers !!! Gene
  • My car keeps going to stall, and sometimes does completely lose power in traffic while accelerating. I have changed plugs and filters. Also torgue converter fluid. It is getting worse. Please help?
  • The LTD and grand marquis have had problems with their EGR crossovers leaking and the EGR valves getting carbon stuck in them. There used to be a screen you could add to prevent this in the older models but that part has been discontinued. That's a good place to start; clean the EGR valve, check the vacuum line attached to it, and inspect the cross-over tube for leaks.
