1991 Mercury Grand Marquis Problems

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.

Spring in Seat Belt Buckle May Fail

A spring in the seat belt buckle may wear or fail, causing the airbag light on the instrument panel to illuminate. Failed buckles will require replacement.

Throttle Position Sensors May Fail and Cause Engine Performance Problems

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.

1991 Mercury Grand Marquis Reviews

Bought this used with just under 100,000 miles on it. Not running right when I purchased it but did some work to it and it's been a very good car. I beefed up the rear suspension with coil over shocks and Moog cargo coil springs plus the addition of a police rear sway bar (badly needed for these large cars). I would like to stiffen up the front suspension and it would be a pretty nice handling ...
ilove this car
my tranny has reverse but no forward gear does it need to be rebuilt or just an overhaul? Other than that i love it only has 34,500 miles.
