You need to be in the loop of conversation between the factory rep and your dealer's service manager. This is a serious safety factor needing instant resolvement.
Be very pro active, serious, and firm with all concerned.
Timidity only gets twiddled.

My daughter wrecked her '92 Grand Marquis and would like to sell the engine. It has less than 65,000 original miles on it.
How much is a fair selling price?

Is the AOD transmission available?
Some 94 & earlier Mustang owners have been known to be interested in such.
Most helpful if the engine can be running & heard by the buyers.

My thought is that a some point a set of cheap rotors were put on. These cars are so heavy that you need an upscale rotor or you will have this problem forever.

My engine light comes on randomly, and, gives me the EGR code 332. I have replaced the EGR valve and tube. Is there some other valve or gizmo that is causing this problem? This is on a 92 Mercury Marquis.

Hi, I have 2 grand marcs LS, and if the wheels are not torqued to specs after rotating, etc., they will shimmy upon breaking. That is the magnesium or whatever type of wheels on the LS. (not the GS)
#10 of 12 errant?! warning signal
May 05, 2009 (10:07 am)
About 6 months ago after having the car washed and vacummed a mystery sound developed in my 2002 Grand Marquis LS. 1 1/2 minutes after starting the engine a series of warning beeps begin. The warning beep is about a second long followed by a space of a sceond and so on for 5 beeps, then 3-4 seconds of silence and another series of beeps and so on for a total of 5 series of 5 beeps each. This happens every time the car is started; weather the seat belt is fastened or not; weather the car is moving or not. The sound is different from the seat belt waring signal. It seems to emit from the center of the dashboard.
There is no warning light, and the warning lights are ok upon starting.

do not waste your time or money turning warped rotors. IMO and experience the problem is rarely in one's driving technique but rather a metallurgical or casting defect in the rotor itself. my experience has been that turning them is good for 10 - 15K miles at most. replace them! i have have recently put EBC rotors and pads on 2 of my cars and LOVE them. drilled and slotted rotors matched to 4 diffent levels of brake pads.
