A lot of people want to know how they tell if their Ford Crown Vic has or does not have an oil cooler. Most of the vehicles with oil coolers were sold as Police Cars or Taxis. Both of these vehicles are used for purposes that require frequent idling, which is difficult on an engine. Police vehicles are also theoretically supposed to be useable for "intercepting" which can require long duration high speed driving.

There are two ways:

  • On the head, below the valve cover on the driver's side of the vehicle, there is an engine id tag. We can decode that.
  • You can call your local Ford parts department with your VIN. They can bring up a build sheet and tell you.

Ford Crown Victoria Engines 1995-Present

The current Ford Crown Victoria is a full-sized, rear wheel drive sedan with front independent suspension. Many different Fords have had the name since 1955, when the Ford Victoria in production at the time was given a “crown,” or steel band running around the car roofline. Since then the name and crown have been applied to what were formerly known as LTD Landaus and full-sized LTD Granada-type cars. The current Ford Crown Victoria went into production in 1992.

First generation Crown Victorias were produced from 1992-1997. These cars featured a then-new 4.6-liter, 16-valve (2 valves per cylinder) Ford Modular engine. The Modular is a high-volume, single overhead camshaft engine identical to the Triton engine found in some in Ford trucks and the In-Tech engine in some Lincolns. Modular signifies that the various versions of this engine family can be manufactured by the same factory with some reasonably quick tool and plant changes. It does not mean that engines from different model years share parts, as Ford has revised and fine-tuned this and other engines over the years with little regard for compatibility with earlier versions. In fact, Modular engines produced in Ford’s Romeo plant are not likely to be compatible with engines of the same model year made in Windsor. Engine variations by plant include differences in main bearings, camshaft gears, cam caps, and valve covers.

The 4.6 Modular V-8 engine debuted in the 1991 Lincoln Town Car. The engine found in first-generation Crown Victorias has 210 horsepower with 270 foot-pounds of torque, with a dual-exhaust option. While the Crown Victoria was retooled for 1996 and again in 1997, no engine changes were made.

The second-generation of Crown Victorias ran from 2003 to 2007. Models produced from 1998-2000 had a 215-horsepower Modular engine with 285 foot-pounds of torque and a dual exhaust option. These engines have coil-on-plug ignition in place of the traditional spark plug wires, with coils mounted atop the plugs so voltage travels directly to the plug electrodes. (Coil-on-plug was designed to function with contemporary distributorless ignition systems. This system is cheaper and more efficient, as no wires means no voltage leaks.) The 2001-02 Modular found in Crown Victorias is a 235-hp engine with 275 foot-pounds of torque—again, with a dual exhaust option.

The Modular engine received a few other tweaks during the second generation, the main one being a knock sensor added for the 2003 model year increasing engine output considerably. In 2004, an overhaul to torque conversion resulted in better acceleration. The result was a 239 horsepower engine with 282 foot-pounds of torque.

While the 16-valve Modular design was improved over the years, it was far from perfect. Engines produced from 1996-2001 often leaked coolant due to intake manifold cracks. These manifolds are composed of DuPont’s nylon compound, Zytel. Ford added an aluminum front coolant crossover to all 2002 2-valve Modulars, with implementation beginning with some 2001 models. Replacement intakes are available for engines produced between1996-2001.

The Crown Victoria P71, known since 1999 as the Police Interceptor, is famous for its high-performance pursuit engine. It’s also designed to idle for long periods of time without overheating; this is accomplished by an oil-to-coolant heat exchange. Interceptors produced before 1998 had a 210-hp V-8 engine; 1998-2003 models have a 250-hp Modular with 297 foot-pounds of torque. Despite the pursuit engine, this is a heavier car due to the likelihood of police officers being involved in crashes and being required other cars off the road. Enough performance was sacrificed to accomplish this that the Interceptor has been described as driving “like your grandfather’s Crown Vic.”
