Ford Thunderbird ProblemsExtended Warranty on Ford Ignition Coils
There may be an extended warranty on the ignition coils - see your Ford Dealer for more information-Thanks John B for this information!
The valve cover gaskets may leak oil into the spark plug wells, shorting out the spark plugs, causing a misfire, and illuminating the Check Engine Light. Commonly the spark plugs and ignition coils or wires will require replacement, along with resealing the valve cover to correct this concern.
White smoke coming from the exhaust could indicate that a head gasket has blown or there is a cracked cylinder head. Our technicians tell us that removal and inspection of the cylinder heads will be required to confirm a crack is present.

Ford Thunderbird RecallsA Crack May Develop in the Fuel Tank
On 56 vehicles, the fuel tank may have an area with a thin wall and may crack, creating the potential for a fuel leak, fuel odor, and the Check Engine Light may come on. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel tank free of charge. The Ford recall number is 05S29.
Ford has recalled certain 2004 Taurus, Thunderbird, and Mercury Sable vehicles due to an inadequate weld on the front seats. In a collision, the seat may not perform as designed, which could result in injury. Dealers will replace the upper support assembly on the power seats.
