Thread: Yo! New owner of a 04 GMQ

    Default Yo! New owner of a 04 GMQ

    Hey everyone! I am a very new enthusiastic owner of a 2004 Grand Marquis. I've never worked on Ford Products in my life so i'm used to GM cars. I don't know a lot about this vehicle and could use advice on some of the small things wrong with it.

    I hope to get to know you guys better and share in the future discussions! - J

    Welcome!

    Looks like a solid starting base, and you got a pretty good year for these cars.

    FWIW, someone put on the earlier low offset Town Car wheels on it, which is why the wheels are poking out so much. Also, looks like someone stuck on another driver's side wiper arm on the passenger side since it's sticking over so far (or they're just been put on the wrong sides).

    The wiper arms were a bit odd but during the rains here the past few days hasn't caused any problems and seems to keep the windshield clear so i haven't thought about changing it. and the wheels are? That's pretty nice i thought it was a nice feature with the wheels poking out. Hopefully it doesn't mean it will cause issues.

    From the papers they left in it it was a limo for a service in Kingsport, TN down the road from me so it had good documentation on it's upkeep. It's my daily driver after a Master Cylinder Change and all the brake lines bled stops great now and is safe so far so good
