Hi, Can anyone list the recalls for this period. My 1986 totally loses power at 25 mph and starts to shutter and will stall. Someone said a block item box was replace by the engine firewall.
Tune up, and replaced catylic converters. When at 25 mph I hear a loud whissle. Thanks

Thanks for that info which I did not know and of course Ford never notifies the owners anyway. Strange thing is I had to repair the gas lines last month because of a leak and the FI was sucking in air throught them. I was hoping this was my problem, but it did not. Cheers !!! Gene

My car keeps going to stall, and sometimes does completely lose power in traffic while accelerating. I have changed plugs and filters. Also torgue converter fluid. It is getting worse. Please help?

The LTD and grand marquis have had problems with their EGR crossovers leaking and the EGR valves getting carbon stuck in them. There used to be a screen you could add to prevent this in the older models but that part has been discontinued. That's a good place to start; clean the EGR valve, check the vacuum line attached to it, and inspect the cross-over tube for leaks.
