2000 Ford Crown Victoria Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2000 Ford Crown Victoria based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
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.
The engine may overheat at idle when the AC is on. A new, upgraded fan motor and resistor assembly should be installed.
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.
