2003 Ford Crown Victoria Problems

Loose internal components may cause catalytic converter failure

Catalytic converter failure is common. Internal components become loose, causing a rattle or creating back pressure in the exhaust.

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.

Engine May Overheat at Idle With AC On

The engine may overheat at idle when the AC is on. A new, upgraded fan motor and resistor assembly should be installed.
