1992 Mercury Grand Marquis LS 4.6L V8 from North America
Good affordable family sedan
I have just bought this car and already things have gone wrong with it. The check engine light comes on when you are driving long distances and then proceeds to buck. The front seal in the transmission is leaking and the transmission its self shifts roughly into overdrive. Other than that we love it. I always told my self I would never drive a Ford, but here I am driving one. I would recommend this car to others interested in purchasing one. The 4.6l V8 engine in smooth and fairly powerful. This is the same engine used in police cars, so they must be reliable. Fuel mileage is actually not too bad for a big car. I like Dodge better, but they or chevy no longer make big family cars like ford does.
Thanks for reading.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Hi To all!
I just purchased a 1993 Grand Marquis with 60,000 miles on it and is doing all the mentioned symptoms, (check engine light when at high speeds, Goes to Overdrive without notice, Bucks and vibrates every now and then)
Has anybody found the causes of these glitches?
The engine and transmission are in perfect condition and I think it may be a (flow, pressure or oxygen) sensor problem, but before I go and spend a fortune changing all the sensors at random, I would like to have some light on the issue, or have an idea of what to look for.
Other than that, I just plain love the big ride and comfort that 4000 pounds of steel provides on the open roads.
Any comments will be greatly appreciated.
