is it an ex-police car? or just the same model as police cars?

it's called a governer. it limits the speed your car will go, despite it's actual performance levels. and unless ur car has the colors and the roof lights, i'd bet a nut that's what it is slowing u down.
i always come to UG for a tab, but get sucked into the pit

This, it's the governer, I know it's an ex-police car, but when they turn them back into civilian cars and put them on the market, they take the speed chip from the police cars and turn it back to stock. That's why it won't do 145 like most police cars. My recommendation if you want to go that fast, get another speed chip.

Wheel balancing maybe. If you've lost a wheel weight or two that tends to make the car juddery at high speed.

any number of things could be unbalanced. Probably a wheel like someone said. Could be the driveshaft, or a U-joint could be bad. Also, there is no way that the car will do 145mph sorry. Takes alot of power to move something that heavy so fast.

Uhhhh...yeah, it will do 145mph, in fact, it only takes about 300 horsepower or so to move a car that fast. All it needs is the governer taken out and a long stretch of road to allow it time to go that fast.

Leave earlier for school instead of making threads. Then you won't need to speed.

despite what you think you are not as good of driver as you think you are follow the speed limit.

Edits: The governer maintains engine speed at a certain point it does not shut anything off. you should really just follow the speed limit or youre going to get yourself ****in killed

Ex-police car =/= police car performance.

And you're not really cool for driving fast. Just drive like a normal person so you don't die.

You don't have any need to be going that fast. Sounds to me like a Governator chip in your car that doesn't let you get any faster than 90MPH.

going that fast will get you a reckless driving ticket which is like 600$ and then your insurance will jump up to 250$ just for liability. what so you get to school 5 minutes earlier.
this is why i think driving laws in our country are too lax, because of jackasses like ts

I took it to a shop, and it is indeed the governer. Thanks guys.
But while this thread is alive, since its got 248,000 miles on it, what do you recomend I do extra to keep it running for the longest time?
Im changing tranny fluid, oil, flushing radiator, new battery, new filters of course. Any other recomendations?
#34
With that kind of mileage it' probably on its way out. I would just replace the fluids and follow through with normal maintenance. Investing large amounts of money into it is just not a good idea.

i agree, if they dont want to drive fast, dont. but dont be a ****ing douche to the people that do. its obviously natural for MEN to want to drive fast or the sport of racing wouldnt have been invented.

on topic, i have a jeep thats that old and did the same thing at about 97mph and it has more things wrong with it than things that work. my bet would be, that just like other people said, its a governor. the police interceptors are specially built for the police with special high output V8s and alot of other performance parts that will help them catch the guy thats speeding. if their going to sell the car, their probably going to want to limit that because if someone else has essentially the same car and is a better driver than them, their ****ed. so they probably put governors on them to keep that from happening

Sounds like the tranny has problems shifting gears. Doing pit maneuvers and smashing into **** at high speeds will do that to the transmition. For a quick fix, there is stuff you can by and add to the transmition (besides ATF) thats supposed to work wonders and fix those kinds of problems. I forget what its called as i never had to use it myself. Google it or something or ask around a car repair shop (NAPA or something)

Oh yea, don't know anything about these 'governors'. I don't think canadian crown vics have them, ours are absolutely stock.

Going 90 in a 60 puts everyone on the road at risk. If your that guy, your an ass and an idiot. Speed limits aren't there to recommend a speed. They are there to keep you(the speeder) from plowing into other people who assume you are going the speed limit.

Hasn't that ever happened to you. You look in your mirror, there is someone way back there. You go to change lanes, and low and behold, the person is already right THERE. You just happen to get back out the way before they almost kill you.

On topic.

Plug and wire, check suspension bushing, and high pressure lines(eg. brake lines).

nope cant say that it has, i look before i change lanes sorry. if you were doing things the way you were supposed to, you'd look, check your blind spots, look again then change lanes. and you mean to tell me that when you look in your mirror you cant tell that the dude behind you is going wayyyy over the speed limit?

and, nowhere in this thread did ts say that he was doing 90 down the busiest highway in his town at the middle of rush hour. for all you and all the other speed nazis know it was down some back county road or out in the middle of the desert somewhere, or hell he could have even had it on a dyno. so if all your gonna do is say how what he does is bad and how he shouldnt do it and ****, leave the thead and do it somewhere where people care what you think, and its on topic to the damn question at hand
