FORD: LINCOLN: MERCURY: 2005-2010 Crown Victoria 2005-2006 Expedition 2005-2010 E-150, E-250, E-350, F-150 2005-2010 Town Car 2006-2008 Mark LT 2005-2010 Grand Marquis Some 2005-2010 vehicles equipped with a 4R70/75E-W transmission may experience an un-commanded torque converter clutch (TCC) apply or TCC partial apply immediately after the 1-2 shift. This may result in the perception that the vehicle lacks power or that the transmission is up-shifting too early. Additional symptoms of uncommanded TCC apply when coming to a stop (before the 2-1 downshift is commanded), are engine stalling or lugging when engaging manual 2nd while at a stop and code P1742 may be present in continuous memory. However, the vehicle should operate normally in park, reverse, neutral and manual 1st gear. ACTION: Follow the Service Procedure for verification and repair. SERVICE PROCEDURE 1. Monitor (TCC %) solenoid command state – duty cycle and (TC SLIP ACT) torque converter clutch slippage – RPM, while in 2nd, 3rd or 4th gear with a TCC % reading 0. a. If TCC % = 0 and TC SLIP ACT = less than 20 RPM then inspect the number 7 check ball in the main control valve body for damage. Replace as required following the appropriate Workshop Manual (WSM) under Disassembly and Assembly of Subassemblies – Main Control Valve Body. (Figure 1) NOTE: THIS PROCEDURE IS PERFORMED IN 2ND GEAR AUTO (NOT MANUAL 2). MONITOR (TC SLIP ACT) AFTER THE POWERTRAIN CONTROL MODULE (PCM) COMMANDS 2ND GEAR AND BEFORE THE VEHICLE SPEED SENSOR (VSS) READS 35 MPH (56 KM/H). b. If you receive any other reading, this procedure does not apply; follow normal diagnostic procedures as outlined in the appropriate WSM. NOTE: IT IS NORMAL FOR THE PCM TO COMMAND 4TH GEAR AT SPEEDS AS LOW AS 19 MPH ( 30 KM/H) WITH LIGHT ACCELERATION WHEN THE THROTTLE POSITION IS LESS THEN 20%.

SERVICE PROCEDURE 1. Set the parking brake. 2. Connect C-III to the vehicle. 3. Use C-III to check for Air Bag DTCs. a. Navigate C-III to Air Bag Direct Diagnostic Mode. b. Make sure to check both SELF DIAG RESULTS and SELF-DIAG [PAST]. • SELF-DIAG [PAST] is under Special function. • If there are any DTCs stored for AIR BAG other than B1033, B1034 and/or B1035, perform repairs as needed, and then erase DTC before continuing with this procedure. • Diagnosis and repair for DTCs other than B1033, B1034, and/or B1035 is not covered by this bulletin. NOTE: All DTCs (except B1033, B1034, and B1035) must be repaired and erased before continuing with this procedure. 4. Disconnect C-III from the vehicle. 5. Start the engine and let it idle for about 5 seconds. 6. Turn the ignition OFF. 7. WARNING: Prep the vehicle for Crash Zone Sensor replacement as follows: The following are VERY IMPORTANT to prevent unexpected air bag deployment. • Remove the ignition key / Intelligent Key from the cabin of the vehicle and set aside, away from the vehicle (this will prevent accidentally turning the ignition ON). • Make sure the ignition remains OFF until after the new sensor is completely installed. • Make sure no one is in the vehicle cabin and no one enters the vehicle cabin until after the sensor is completely installed. • Wait for all control units to “power down” (at least 1 minute) before continuing. 8. Locate the Crash Zone Sensor (see Figure 2). Crash Zone Sensor Cover 9. Remove the 2 Crash Zone Sensor nuts shown in Figure 3. • Discard these nuts. They will not be reused. 10. Remove the Crash Zone Sensor Cover. 11. Disconnect the electrical connector shown in Figure 4.

SERVICE PROCEDURE 1. Raise the vehicle off the ground with a vehicle hoist. 2. Remove the right rear wheel. 3. Remove 2 bolts from the fuel filler tube bracket. 4. Remove the plastic cover (4 clips). 5. Unhook the fuel filler tube bracket from the body. 6. Unclip the recirculation tube. 7. Apply auto body painting tape to the top and rear of the wheel opening as shown. NOTE: This tape will protect the paint during the procedure. 8. Use a protective cloth to cover the items shown in Figure 6. 9. Remove the fuel filler cap and install a spare fuel fill cap. NOTE: If a spare fuel filler cap is not available, disconnect the tether and leave the original cap in place. 10. Hold the fuel filler tube with both hands and carefully pull the flange loose from the fuel door opening. WARNING: Make sure the fuel filler cap is installed and tight. If the fuel filler cap is not installed and tight, fuel may leak from the fuel filler tube when it is lowered. 11. Carefully pull down on the fuel filler tube and then pull the top of the tube from the wheel well (see Figure 8). • Do not scratch or chip the fuel filler tube paint. • Do not pull, stretch, or stress the fuel filler rubber tube. 12. Rest the fuel filler tube on the brake drum. WARNING: Do not remove the fuel fuller cap with the fuel filler tube in this position. Fuel may leak from the fuel filler tube. 13.

LINCOLN: 2008-2010 Town Car 2000-2005 Navigator 2007-2009 MKX MERCURY: 2008-2010 Grand Marquis, Mariner Hybrid, Mariner This article supersedes TSB 9-19-16 to update the Service Procedure. ISSUE Some vehicles may experience white flakes coming from the A/C vents when the blower motor is engaged. This may be caused by flux utilized in the manufacturing process of the evaporator core. ACTION Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition. SERVICE PROCEDURE Hazard and Risk Warnings for White Flakes WARNING MAY CAUSE EYE AND RESPIRATORY TRACT IRRITATION. PROLONGED REPEATED EXPOSURE MAY CAUSE BONE DAMAGE (FLUOROSIS) AND HARM TO THE RESPIRATORY SYSTEM (BASED ON ANIMAL DATA). ^ Avoid inhaling dust. ^ Avoid contact with eyes. ^ Store away from acids. ^ Wash thoroughly after handling. ^ Avoid release to the environment. NOTE THE USE OF DUST PROOF GOGGLES, CHEMICAL RESISTANT GLOVES (PVC) AND DUST MASK IS RECOMMENDED. Using compressed air (maximum inlet pressure) 100 PSI (689 kPa), clean the A/C ducts through the registers and blow off the evaporator core through the blower motor opening. NOTE THE ENTIRE EVAPORATOR CORE SURFACE MUST BE DRY FOR BEST RESULTS. NOTE WHILE PERFORMING THIS PROCEDURE AND SELECTING DIFFERENT VENT MODES SUCH AS FLOOR / PANEL AND FLOOR / DEFROST, IT MAY BE NECESSARY TO TEMPORARILY START THE ENGINE TO ENABLE MODE DOOR MOVEMENT. Clean A/C Ducts: 1. Remove floor duct trim. 2. Using masking tape, connect one end of the vacuum cleaner hose to the floor duct on driver side. 3. Tape closed all the other floor duct openings. 4. Obtain about two feet (61 cm) of rubber vacuum line large enough to fit the end of a small shop air blowgun. Secure the hose to the end of the blowgun using a worm clamp. 5. Close all instrument panel registers. 6. Set temperature setting to full cold. 7. Place mode in floor / panel. 8. Turn on vacuum cleaner. 9. Working with one register at a time insert the vacuum line down each duct and blow shop air through each duct for 30 seconds. Be sure to close each register before moving on to the next register. 10. Change mode to floor I defrost.
