1990 Mercury Grand Marquis Ls Sedan 4-door 5.0l on 2040-cars
Salem, Arkansas, United States
For Sale: 1990 Mercury Grand Marquis 4-door Sedan. I'm the second owner of this car. It was originally purchased new in Port Charolette, Florida by an elderly woman who moved to be close to her family in Arkansas. After she retired to a nursing home and was no longer able to drive, I purchased this Mercury Grand Marquis from her family. This is a real southern car with no real rust issues. You'll see one spot where the vinyl top meets the body shown in the photo. The vinyl top has quite a few hairline cracks in it, but is still solid. The interior is cloth with no real damage, no holes, and it comes from a non-smoking family. You'll see in one photo the rear window interior has started to come apart from age. Power front seats work. Cruise still works. All the lights work. The power windows are working, but kind of weak. All the glass is good, no cracks. Has rear window defroster that works. Air conditioner works. Heater works. Recent battery. Radio works and has working cassette player and power antenna. Has had recent brakes, water pump, starter, valve cover gaskets, spark plugs and wires, and it has the 5.8 fuel injected V-8 engine that doesn't smoke or use any oil between changes and runs excellent with good gas mileage for a car this size, and is rear-wheel drive. This car has a full length frame and real metal bumpers. This model came out with air shocks and has been converted to regular hydraulic shocks. Smooooth ride! Has 70 to 80 percent Goodyear made in USA tires size R215-75-15. I have owned this car for over seven years and drove it with confidence. It will make somebody a nice car or an easy restoration project. Mileage is an estimate. If you have zero feedback, contact me before you bid.
Look at pictures. Please ask any questions. They don't make them like this anymore.

Ford is recalling about 70,209 examples of the 2005-2008 Ford Escape Hybrid and the 2006-2008 Mercury Mariner Hybrid because the cooling pumps for their hybrid systems could fail.
Fri, 11 Jul 2014 18:29:00 EST
According to the company's defect notice, it's possible for the original "Motor Electronics Coolant (MEC) Pump" to wear out and fail, which would could cause the hybrid system to overheat. If this happens, the vehicle goes into a safety mode that takes away most or all of its power. However, braking and steering still operate normally. After cooling down, the affected models restart normally. The company says that it's not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this problem.
Ford will begin repairing the vehicles in late October, and dealers will be installing improved, brushless pumps on the affected models at no charge to owners. If drivers had their pumps fail before this recall, they can contact Ford for a possible reimbursement.

There may be more steering woes for the Ford Crown Victoria. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened a preliminary evaluation into the Crown Vic and Mercury Grand Marquis from the 2004 to 2007 model years and the Mercury Marauder for the 2004 and 2005 model years because the steering shaft can jam. The issue could potentially affect an estimated 500,000 vehicles.

According to the regulator, there is a possibility that the driver's side heat shield for the exhaust manifold can rust, dislodge, and then wedge into the steering shaft. If this occurs, it leads to a situation where the driver can no longer control the car.
NHTSA has received five complaints of this happening, including one alleged case with an injury. In that situation, the car was driving onto the highway, lost control and rolled over. One occupant was hurt in the accident.
Ford has announced a recall of certain Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan vehicles after an investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. A total of 128,616 2010 and 2011 models equipped with steel wheels may have been manufactured with wheel studs that could crack and split over time. If that happens, the vehicle may experience a wheel separation.
According to The Detroit News, the company is aware of a total of 30 wheel separation incidents, one of which occurred on the front of the vehicle. Even so, no injuries have been reported as a result of the defect.
The problem apparently stems from the fact that the mounting pads on the vehicles' steel wheels may have been faulty from the factory. In addition, the wheel mounting face on rear disc brakes may not have been installed properly. Ford will inspect the rear disc face and replace them as necessary. In addition, the company will replace all of the vehicle's wheel studs free of charge. Head to the NHTSA website for more information, and click past the jump to view the full recall notice.
