    Driving to Phoenix and back earlier this year I averaged 20 mpg. That was about 1,000 miles round trip with 3.27 gears. Normally, though, I'd be more in the 18-19 mpg range.

    The one time I towed a...

    I can't say I've inspected the right apron or splash shield for the '90, only because it didn't get me anything by swapping into my '87. But from what I've seen, there appears to be at least two...

    For the record: the Box splash shields that cover the control arms are interchangeable with the '90 TC fender liners. Though I'm pretty sure all other Aero TCs have a different mounting pattern for...

    Thanks, David, I'll give that a try.

    The car isn't level at the moment. The front wheels are off the ground while the rears are just barely touching, so I assume it has more to do with fluid...

    Well here we are a year later and I still haven't addressed the transmission. But the time is definitely approaching.

    There's a pretty significant leak coming out of the rear. Presumably from the...

    I have all of those things from when I switched to the '90 TC setup. The air box is missing a clip and a bit of plastic, but everything is functional. Shipping would be from 92310, and with the bulk...

    That's how it is in my Town Car. It seems there are at least two styles for the visor lights. Mine has two lights per side, low and high. The owner's manual lists them all as 168's. Not sure which...

    I've been doing quite a bit of research recently on acoustic treatments, and I think I'm just about ready to order some materials. The Box Town Cars are pretty quiet already, as you say, but they're...

    Off topic, but could you write a bit on the sound deadening you did and how it's turned out?

    Well done.

    It's still only a sample size of two, but I think plunger/needle valve failure has got to be the primary issue these sensors have. As you found, it seems the plunger needs to be free...

    Yes, simply bridging the lines does nothing more than give you steady, full cold. If you wanted to do something fancier you certainly could, and the things you're considering sound like you're on the...

    Check out this thread for some ideas on repairing your ATC sensor. I believe that so long as the needle valve/plunger in your sensor is still there, these sensors should be repairable. I've only...

    A little off topic, but what padding did you find under the carpet. Is it just a layer of jute? Or did they put some sort of rubber or vinyl later between like on the cover between the rear seat and...

    I found UV blocking window tint to do quite well in reducing my need for AC. Though we have no humidity here, so that may not be as helpful in Virginia.

    I can now confirm that at least the driver's side fender liner from a '90 TC will fit a Box. Despite the body style changes, the fender liners remained pretty similar. All mounting points are the...

    I think so. I've become more skeptical of the idea that the bi-metal loses tension over time. It's two different metals joined to each other, whose layering ought to provide some rigidity. And it...
