#970 of 1804 Lincoln Town Car 2003 Trunk Dimensions
Dec 20, 2003 (7:47 am)
I am planning to get to know Lincoln Town Car 2003 during my visit in States, impressed by its long history and good reviews in some of the magazines available in Europe.
I am wondering now, if any of you know about the exact dimensions of its trunk. It has been told to be huge (21 cu.ft), but the exact dimensions of it are difficult to find on the Web.
I drive a lot and travel with large suitcases - it would help to know, how deep, high and wide is the deeper area of the trunk that is closest to the opening of the trunk? If anyone of you know where to get this information before Christmas, or if you have it yourself, it'd be a great help!

Thank you heaps, ehardison1! You helped a lot.
Estimating from a photo I found from the Web, I suppose if I'd place
(1) one box that would be of an exact size 14"x32.5"x 26" to the deep part of the trunk,
(2) another box of the same size on top of it,
(3) a 3rd box of the same size on the upper compartment closer to the rear seats,
all boxes would fit in, but the trunk would be rather full?
The volume of the three boxes would be quickly counting 3 x 5.23 cubic ft = 15,7 cu.ft. Lincoln advertises a trunk size of 21 cu.ft, but I suppose the remaining 6 cu.ft would left on the sides of the deeper area, or the upper compartment is perhaps higher than the deep part of the trunk?

Sounds OK. The extra space in your calculations would be on both sides of the deep part of the trunk,one side,the right has the spare tire but the left has a space approximately 14 inches wide and goes to the back of the seat. The problem with these spaces is you have to leave room for the trunk brackets when the trunk is closed,but you can put quite a bit there if you pack it carefully.

Correction. The space left of the deep well in the town car does not go to the back of the seat it goes the length of the deep part of the trunk

I see, ehardison1. Thanks a lot! The trunk is not actually that bad then. The shape of the cargo space has been criticized a lot. I know now anyway it swallows a lot, my suitcases and more. Thanks again:).
P.S. I had a quick look at your profile; I hope you get your dream Lincoln one day:). Thanks once more:).
#976 of 1804 Fuel Line ?????
Dec 26, 2003 (9:15 am)
This might be one to test your ability. 95 TC. The return gas line from the engine, if looking at the gas tank from below, it would be the bottom one of two lines. The other one is the pressure line which feeds the gas to the engine. ( Per my mechanic, who I trust and has had a dragster for years, = knowledge ).
Started smelling gas big time, and he put on lift, and the bottom line is leaking, and looks like it has gotten hot, discolored and protective wrapping of line is crumbling to the touch.
He says the replacement line is like $431 has to run from the tank all the way to the engine.
So the #1 ? is How did line get this hot?
#2 ? anyone ever hear of this problem?
He says he has never seen it on other TC's, or Grand Marquis, or Victoria's, etc.
Thanks in advance for any theories...
Otherwise car has been very good and want to keep car.
#977 of 1804 Never heard of that before...

But there are some things that could have caused abnormal heat underneath, however, having no history of the car, location or experience, it does no good to speculate.
However, $431 for the replacement part seems a bit out of line. Is the whole part leaking, or could a portion of it be replaced? We have a parts house here called the "House of Hose", who makes such parts, or parts of parts custom, and saves us a fortune. I know, I haven't seen it, but it may be worth looking into.
#978 of 1804 Sure us quiet on this forum

Not much happening on the forum. I guess every one has been busy installing their Christmas gift accessories on their Lincoln.I got some new turn signal fluid but it has been too cold to put it in.

One reason the Town Car forum is usually pretty quiet, is nobody hates their Town Car, you rarely have trouble with them, and there's not a lot to add on, since they come with most everything.
The most discussions I've seen on this board have been about how much to pay, what about this year or that year, and stories about how well my Town Car serves me, etc. I'm always up for a talk, but am talking to myself a lot around here.
