2002 Ford Crown Victoria Problems

Wear on rear axle shafts may cause excessive play and gear oil leaks
Wear on the rear axle shafts near the bearings can create excessive play and lead to gear oil leaking past the seals. Gear oil will leak onto the brake backing plate, brakes, and wheels.
Intake Manifold May Crack Leaking Coolant Behind the Alternator

The composite (plastic) intake manifold may crack near the thermostat housing and cause a coolant leak. Ford released an updated manifold that was reinforced to prevent a recurrence. No recall was issued for this problem but Ford did extend the warranty to seven years on some models from the date of purchase.

Police/Fleet/Natural Gas Models May Experience Lower Ball Joint Wear

Certain police, fleet, and natural gas models may experience lower ball joint wear, requiring replacement of the front ball joints. Ford has issued a recall on certain vehicles for this condition. Please contact your local dealer for more information.

2002 Ford Crown Victoria Reviews

THE CLOSESET COUSIN TO THE MERCURY MARAUDER, THE "CVLX" SPORT, ALSO KNOWN AS THE "BLACKHAWK". A REAL GROWLER THROUGH ANY JUNGLE STREETS. FAST, HEAVY AND AGILE FOR ITS SIZE. THE "CVLX" SPORT IS A TRUE MUSCLE CAR. BIG, BLACK, MEAN AND FAST!!!!! Love my CVLX Sport!
Great steering, braking, rides low to the ground so the car does not feel squirrely at higher speeds. Built for Police Dept. so it is built to run unlike the ford explorer which is built to break down. People drive safe around you, great trunk, parts are not crammed together like asian cars, making diy work not a complete pia. Parts are cheap since this is the cab and police car of choice,...
The coolant system cap (a $5.00 plastic cap) seems to go bad annually causing overheating. The paint just peels off the rear sides of the car between the rear side window and rear window. I have had several problems with the A/C Blower
