Yesterday I decided to run a quick errand, and half way to my destination, I started hearing a rumble. At first, I thought it was the Subaru in front of me. Then when I pushed the gas pedal, I came to the realisation that the sound was coming from MY car.
Exhaust gasket #2 has failed. And Vic sounds like a Dodge truck with an 8 foot lift kit, chrome everything, and lots of decals.
If you look back through the WUWV archives, you will see that Todd and I replaced one back in 2006. So it took 6 years for the other one to rot away! I think I still have a replacement gasket in the trunk, as I bought two, figuring I'd need the second one done soon. Six years isn't exactly "soon".
Welcome to the Crown Vics ETC blog!
On April 6, 2000, I purchased a 1998 Ford Crown Victoria LX HPP with 23,490 miles. I decided to start a little website for it featuring a running log of my experiences with the car. Vic 1.0 was retired in 2015 due to rust and electrical issues. Vic 2.0 is a 2006 P71 that belonged to my boyfriend. To read posts prior to 2010, click a link at right, or go to Crown Vics, ETC.
