I have a 2000 Lincoln Town Car that has given me fits since I bought it a year ago, but it’s still a car that can get me to Point A to Point B. About a month ago the heater core supposedly broke and sweet smelling, white smoke came out of the vents and fogged up the windshield. I think this is a common problem for them, but not an easily fixed one. I’m willing to do the repair myself and I already have the replacement part, but I’m having trouble trying to take out the dash. Another problem that happened when my neighbor, who is a pretty darn good mechanic, tried to get at the core by dropping the steering column, causing the needle for PRND12 to be off (i.e to put it in Drive, you move the needle to Reverse). Tips on how to fix one or both of these problems would be awesome, thank you!
I was also reading another post about how someone’s 2001 had a wet passenger side carpet. This car also has that, and the rear was actually flooded about a year and a half ago. The dealer thought it was a leak, but they couldn’t pinpoint the exact spot. We also tried to tape up the doors, but the carpet would still become wet without a known source. This isn’t the main concern, but if it helps diagnose the problem, I figured I would add it. Again, thanks for any help!
