Re: 1996 crown vic wont start
Dose it have an oil cooler? Cop cars, towing package, and handling package had them. If it dose, before he condemns the head gasket have him check the oil filter adapter and its gasket. Its actually the part that the oil filter screws onto. That gasket can fail, and when it dose it will cause the oil to water mixing that your husband found, its more common on cars w/ oil coolers but it can happen on cars w/o them. It is a much cheaper and easier repair than a head gasket.
