I bet my oil pan has a punch of plastic and some metal shavings in it. I saw a black 2011 Crown Victoria LX for sale that has the Police Interceptor badge on back. But leather sets front and back. I think it has the police engine and tranny with better suspension then regular crown vic. Less millage 80 thousand
might be worth looking at. Not as nice as a Marauder. But still good. Rather have that then a Camry or Accord SOOO BORING THOSE CARS

Lash adjusters were all hard as a rock but exhaust guides seemed loose. Engine still out and heads are off. Was amazed at the condition of the cylinder bores. No ridge and can still see the cross hatch pattern. Bottom line is some broken plastic pieces from the chain guides were inside the oil pickup tube blocking oil flow and I would not have found them without pulling the oil pan


My boys Ranger sometimes gets a little gunk in his screen. Pan removal is almost 1 1/2 hours if you’ve done it before.. So I went ahead and drilled and tapped a 1/2” I.P. hole directly below the screen. Now it’s a matter of backing out the plug (an axle fill plug) and sending in a micro vacuum cleaner attachment about 3/4” straight up, suck it clean, reinstall plug. WIN!

The VIN will tell if it is a police car..a police interceptor badge can be had on ebay all day long.. A P7B in the VIN is a cop car, the car you see is most likely a plain LX..there is no difference in motor and transbetween them..it's only the PCM that slightly changes the shifting..cop cars had 3.27 or 3.55 rear axle..LX had 2.73
