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.
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.

1994 Ford Crown Victoria Reviews
I am having a problem! The mileage does not register how or where can I get the right cable? I need this asap.
I got this car for $900 (109,000 miles on it) in 2006 .The last owner was a 16 year old that neglected the car. I love this car and it runs better at 170,000 miles than it did the day I bought it (best deal I ever got). I've had to change a few small parts the alternator was the most expensive ($150 after core returned), 2,000 watt custom stereo system, wore it out, but it’s worth it. I'm all about luxury and this car is the shit ($300 tint job for 9 windows is totally worth it). (0-60 in 8.1 sec.) 22+ mpg hwy at 75+ mph in 3500+ lb. car is awesome mileage. I drive 1600+ miles round trips at least twice a year (I love cruise control). I used to hate passing big rigs in a 2002 Honda civic, now it’s a piece of cake in my Crown Vic. This is my first Crown Vic and it’s not my last . This is the kind of car I want to grow old with.
I have had my 1994 crown vic for three years, as my first car, and have really not had many problems considering its an almost 18teen year old car from when it rolled off the assembly line, and I was a crazy lead footed new driver.. I did have to replace the passenger side upper control arm and barrings once, and have some electrical problems at the moment that I intend to fix.. but all in all the 83,000 miles I have put on it in the three years I have owned it, it has been the most awesome car I think anyone could ask for! the transmission has been sputtering which I just found out means the fluid needs to be changed...DUH! lol.. but in my opinion it is the perfect car! lots of pick up and go, tons of room, and a great look with a comfortable interior! and for a full sized car with a V8, great gas mileage! I swear by them and I dont even like fords lol!
Very reliable car. It's a roomy car with just enough in the options department. Could use a little more horsepower due to the heavy body, but that can be done through things like dual exhaust, intakes, and other small replacements.
