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 SC Problems
The battery light may illuminate on the instrument panel because the alternator wire harness connector is damaged. A new connector kit is available and should be installed to correct this concern.
If you experience difficulty starting the engine when cold, stalling at idle, or hesitations during acceleration, it may be the idle air bypass valve. This valve helps the vehicle idle steady when the accelerator pedal is not pressed.
While steering, if you hear a clunk or a rattle, or if you experience premature tire wear, this could indicate the inner tie rod ends are loose or worn and will require replacement.
This engine may leak oil from the valve cover gasket.

my 1989 thunderbird run good just 17 millas and fail.. why?
Given a 1991 Ford Thunderbird Super Coupe from a family member.
The car ran great the past couple years with very minor issues but recently the Brake Master Cylinder with ABS went out and reportibly is a pretty expensive part and hard to find.
Very fun car to drive and spin but I'm heart broken that I might need to junk it if I can't find a replacement part or rebuilt it for less than a fortune.
4.9 stars out of 5!
I just bought one for $2400, very fun ride five speed manual has been working great, the only headache i have had is the clutch leaking fluid. all over an excellent car
