2006 Ford Crown Victoria Problems

Coolant Leak and/or Engine Overheating Due to Cracked Intake Manifold

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.

Engine Performance Problems Due to Failed Throttle Position Sensor

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.

2006 Ford Crown Victoria Recalls

Potential Loss of Steering

Certain vehicles are being recalled because the upper intermediate steering shaft could separate resulting in loss of steering control.

If the steering column lower bearing has separated, a retainer clip will be installed.

Potential Loss of Steering

The intermediate shafts connect the steering column to the steering gear. Vehicles in areas where salt is used to de-ice the roads are being recalled because severe corrosion can damage the lower intermediate steering shaft. This can cause the upper intermediate shaft to collapse and separate at the lower steering column bearing. Separation will result in complete loss of steering ability. Dealers will replace the lower intermediate steering shaft and inspect the upper intermediate shaft and steering column lower bearing for damage, they will be repaired or replaced as necessary. If the steering column lower bearing has separated, a retainer clip will be installed.

Additionally, Vehicle owners located where salt is not used who have concerns regarding their steering will have a one-time option to have their vehicles inspected and, if necessary, repaired.
