1996 Lincoln Town Car ProblemsCoolant Leak From Intake Manifold

No recall was issued for this problem but Ford did extend the warranty to seven years on some models from the date of purchase.
You may be able to prevent transmission problems by servicing the transmission and inspecting the fluid every 15,000 to 30,000 miles. If the fluid is dark or burned then the transmission fluid should be changed.

Had new tires put on car,they didn't turn off air ride

Replace most of the front end including arms, bushings, stabilizers, also replaced rear air bag. Reduced noise when turning but even the smallest bump sounds like shaking a tray of silverware under my hood.
