Check your coolant pressure cap if you haven't already.

Depending how a head gasket blows, sometimes it will only push gas into the coolant, and cause it to overheat. do this one too many times and it will show itself.

07gtS197 Well

The fast idle cam keeps engaging and will not release, Im not sure what part Id need to fix it. I think I put a vacuum on the dashpot (?) and see if it releases but it also has a heated element that moves too so Im not sure which controls the fast idle cam.

Theres a tapping on bank 1 somewhere around cylinder 2 or 3. How do I adjust the valves? Im thinking thats the problem.

Theres probably more but I cant think of them right now lol. Ive always wanted a square body crown vic but I didnt realize some had this stupid cfi...
