1992 Ford Crown Victoria Problems
The EGR valve position (EVP) sensor can fail on this vehicle. The EVP sensor measures the EGR valve position and transmits the date to the engine control computer. If it fails, drivability and fuel economy can suffer, the Check Engine Light will commonly illuminate.
An oil leak may develop from the the right side head gasket. Oil from this type of leak will commonly drip onto the starter. Our technician tell us an updated head gasket is available to correct this concern.
The throttle position sensor (TPS) may fail. Common symptoms of a defective TPS can be rough idle, hard starting, hesitation on acceleration, poor fuel economy, and stalling.
Severe oil leak causing the need to add up to one or more quarts of oil every couple of days. The oil leaks most when engine is off. The longer the car sets, the more the oil leaks, until it is all gone. Caused by extreme severe corrosion of oil pan. The corrosion is 'flaky' and pieces of the pan come off in layers. Oil seeps right thru the corrosion. The only solution is to have oil pan replaced, which is a major repair.

1992 Ford Crown Victoria Reviews
I own this vehicle since three years. The engine is perfect. The gear has never created any trouble for me. AC is also in very good condition. I enjoy driving this car on long. Although I am also having a new model Ford Explorer, but the SUV does not please me while driving as I enjoy easy and confident ride on this old Model crown Victoria. However I suggest if some one is having US model of this car with closed grill from front, he or she should replace the grill with a grill of 1993 model car having three lines form ventilation to avoid heating of the car in at slow speed on a busy road of very hot countries like middle east.
