Ford Fairmont 1996 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Fairmont here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Ford Fairmont overheating

    I'd say the transmission cooler failed in the old radiator and allowed coolant into the transmission. Replacing the radiator has fixed the coolant leak, but it sounds like it's too late for the transmission. Try a transmission service, you might be lucky, if that doesn't do the trick you could be up for a transmission rebuild.

  • Shedding light on gas

    THE Falcon converts well to LPG so there won't be a problem with valve recession in the short or medium term, but remember that all cars suffer from valve recession, whether they run on leaded petrol, unleaded or LPG. It's only the rate of valve recession that changes, and the Falcon has shown over many years that it copes with LPG well in standard form. The only system available to you for the EL is a venturi-mixer system, which is old technology compared with the injection systems now being used on more modern cars. Sprint Gas actually uses Italian components, like just about every LPG manufacturer, but it develops the systems here in Australia. The company has been around for a long time and has a good reputation. When the installer says he will dyno-tune the car and start it from cold to make sure everything is working OK, every installer should do that. There will be some degradation in the way the car runs when fitted with LPG, but that's the price you pay for the cheaper fuel.

  • We can't get warm

    ACCORDING to Mark Lynch of Carcool Airconditioning, there are three possible causes of ``no heat'' with this EF Fairmont: a blocked heater core, a faulty blend door motor or a broken heater flap shaft. To diagnose the problem, set the control on manual floor and the fan speed at medium and, with your hand over the floor outlet, range the temperature from 16-32 degrees and back. You should feel a variation from cold to warm back to cold, If you do, you have a blocked heater core. If there is no temperature variation, it will be the blend door motor or a broken shaft. You can confirm which one by doing a climate control self-test (refer to a Ford manual) which will confirm an E2 error (blend door faulty) or, if no fault is shown, it will be a broken flap shaft.
