Re: 1993 Crown Vic Computer Light comes on
I may have missed it in the video, but a couple of points should be emphasized. They are simple, but can be problems if ignored.
#1 Do not drop any bolts/nuts; invariably, they will fall through the intake manifold and into the "valley" and you will have to fish around with a magnet, or remove the intake manifold to recover them.
#2 Do not clean the throttle body with anything abrasive! WD 40 and a soft shop towel is all that's needed.
#3 Don't forget to plug the intake with a shop rag and vacuum the carbon out after cleaning the EGR grooves. Carbon is hard and might score your cylinder walls.
#4 Check your EGR tube for carbon buildup, and clean as necessary (as well as the channel machined into the intake manifold).
This is an easy job, not complicated at all, just take your time and be methodical.
