SOURCE: Changed the MAF in 97 Grand Marquis. Car still

you have a little screen just under the pcv valve that get clogged up on those years, look to the rear of the engine on top , look for a hose that connects to the pcv valve (you may want to get a chiltons manual) take out the pcv valve then remove the screen that is under it, so it can breath again this will be a tremendous help to you.
(don't forget to replace the pcv valve)

SOURCE: 97 grand marui rattling noise sounds like marble

The first place you need to start is with an oil pressure gauge. Rattling marble sounds come from engine components that don't have proper lubrication. What happens is when your engine is cold and you fire it up, the oil is really thick. The hotter the oil gets, the thinner it gets. If there is a problem with the oil pump, it will not draw heavy oil, but as it thins out, it becomes easier for the pump to pull it.
So my advice is to get your oil pump tested. That would be a smart first step.

SOURCE: '97 Grand Marquis needs a new Oxygen Sensor

its simple to do. just unplug the sensor and unscrew it. if its frozen and hard to break loose, then just heat the base the part of exhaust that it goes into.

SOURCE: 97' grand am starts and stalls ,fuel pressure ok

I'd go with replacing the fuel filter, especially if it hasn't been replaced. It should be replaced every 12,000-20,000 miles. I would check the fuel pressure also. These 2 items are not monitored by the computer.

97 Tahoe hesitates and sometimes acts like it will stall when accelerating. Stalls when coming to a stop.


even if you hear pump run, dosent mean it has enough pressure. it is very possible this is the problem. could be engine miss as well. does it jerk when accellerating (light load, like in overdrive up a hill?) let me know.

Recently changed plugs on my marquis and it started stalling at idle and during acceleration. I thought maybe fuel filter so changed it. Problem still exists. Any ideas what the problem might be?


Is it possible that while changing the plugs you disconnected a vacuum line accidentally, or bumped a line that may have caused a crack in a dryed out vacuum line?

I have a 96 Mercury Grand Marquis. The car lurches while driving feeling like it will conk out. Usually when going uphill on the highway and trying to accelerate or maintain speed. This does not happen all...


I have a 96 Grand Marquis with a similar problem. Also on the highway it would just conk out on me suddenly, almost felt like I was hitting the brakes, then it would pick up again. Eventually got to the point where it was stalling out on the highway and at red lights. One day it wouldn't start. Mechanic said the fuel filter was clogged solid. It has run well but every once in awhile still stalls out on me. From talking with other Grand Marquis owners and the mechanic the Mass Air Flow sensor may be to blame. He wanted to charge me $400 but I found the part online for about $85.

Changed the MAF in 97 Grand Marquis. Car still needs acceleration to start and will not stay idle until the car is warm. On about three occasions it has died while driving.


you have a little screen just under the pcv valve that get clogged up on those years, look to the rear of the engine on top , look for a hose that connects to the pcv valve (you may want to get a chiltons manual) take out the pcv valve then remove the screen that is under it, so it can breath again this will be a tremendous help to you.
