1999 Mercury Grand Marquis Problems

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 may be required to correct this concern.

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.

Transmission Failure Common Due to Front Pump Failure

Transmission problems are common in this model, often as a result of a failed front pump. The pump loses its ability to create hydraulic pressure, which an automatic transmission needs to function. A sign of front pump failure can be a whine type noise.

I have had this car for only 6 months and already i've had to replace my alternator, my intake manifold, and my bearing.
