    Check the relay for that soldered wire. If it doesn't have it, it's not the autolamp relay. That's the ONLY "6-pin" relay in the car. The rest are the usual 4/5 pin relays. If it doesn't have the...

    Usually 14 is safe, but some cars don't like more than 10. The 88 MGM I had loved 14. I think it's gadget's towny that hates any more than 10. The HO in the Mark VI I had liked 18 with good gas, but...

    My 88 had 160K+ on it when I sold it. I had eliminated all the leaks and it was down to half a quart per 3K miles. With the VC leaks, it would drop about 1 quart per 1K miles. The 82 Mark VI with the...

    Oh right... 85.

    +1 they all drink oil to a point. It shouldn't be more than about half a quart per 3K miles in good shape. One quart at most with no leaks. At least that's what I've seen.

    The brown one is probably the autolamp relay. Check for a soldered wire on that metal hanger. DO NOT REMOVE THE HANGER FROM THE RELAY if it is soldered to a wire. That will break the relay. That's...

    If it's currently using 10w30, try 10w40 first. 20w50 generally means start saving for a new engine/car.

    Yeah... that would cause the bad contact for sure. Not making the contact at all does tend to not conduct electricity.

    Unless it corroded through the outer casing of the sensor, no. But they do fail without that happening too, so worth the replacement since you're already having issues with it. You can always put a...

    The corrosion you've talked about on the sensor contacts could be masking a shorted sensor. There may also be corrosion inside the plug harness causing issues. Might be worth replacing that sensor as...

    intake air gets really hot and it can't burn enough fuel to get any power. The intake will be dang near as hot so the intake air temp goes up as well.

    Probably just to keep things from shorting across the breaker since the tabs used to connect to it are not round. Definitely a good idea. Nice use of tool sales hanger.

    Read the thread I linked. There's a lot of info there. Also, you'll probably need the universal stuff for the doors and trunk since the OE seals are either dried up old stock or dust by now.

    Once you pull the panel off, there should be a bolt in the body with one to 5 wires going to it (depending on options) just below the dash near the door.
