1997 lincoln mark VIII, no heat for my baby grandson!

Question From dylansgrandma on 1997 lincoln mark VIII, no heat for my baby grandson!

we have a 1997 lincoln mark VIII and the heat isnt working, the blower works but no heat, any ideas what might be wrong?

Response From Hammer Time

With the engine at full operating temp, locate the 2 heater hoses where they go into the firewall and feel them to see if they are both hot to the touch. If not too hot to hold, then you have to look at the actual engine temp and if that is up, if it is, then your looking at a restricted heater core.
If you find that they are both too hot to hold, then the heat in that vehicle is controlled by a blend door that regulates heated air flow. it is operated by an electric motor/actuator. The problem can be that the actuator is stripped or inoperative or the door itself could be damaged. This is what needs to be determined by examining the actuator and see if it is responding to heat change commands or not.
If they are both not too hot to hold on to, then you either have a restricted heater core or the system is not completely full and getting air pockets for some reason.

could be thermostat

There's a long list of maybe reasons. Is there even a proper amount of coolant in it? Does temp gauge show a normal temp?

Lincoln Mark VIII lock will not re-assemble

Question From Suki on Lincoln Mark VIII lock will not re-assemble

After removing the handle of my Lincoln Mark VIII, I can't get the new handle in a position to reach the bar that makes the car lock. I have tried to maneuver the handle, put it in sideways and I can't make it reach. The locking bar sticks up about an inch higher than part of the handle it should slip into. If there is anyone who has any advice, I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Response From Suki
Top Rated Answer

It was built in 1998. I put the handle in and srewed it on and that helps it reach better, but the bar faces horizontal at the top and the hole for the handle is vertical. If anyone knows the answer, I still need help. Thank you.

Response From nickwarner

is this a 79 or an 86 or a 93?

Response From nickwarner

Is this the outer or inner handle?

Response From Suki

It is the outer handle. I had to have my door back together in order to drive my car again, so I fastened the lock to the handle with a pull tie. Thanks anyway.

Response From Hammer Time

Maybe you need a little duct tape too.

Response From Discretesignals

Good idea too...

Response From Hammer Time

Plus, the guy at Autozone agreed with me that the pull ties were a good idea. He was the one I bought them from.

You do realize that taking advice from those guys is equivalent to asking your cat how to fix the TV.

Response From Suki

Hey, MacGyver did stuff like that all the time and it worked for him. If you can't do it the right way, you can always count on plan B. Plus, the guy at Autozone agreed with me that the pull ties were a good idea. He was the one I bought them from.

Woah woah woah. i work at advance auto and the guys i work with other than 2 actually know their stuff lol.

Response From Hammer Time

If you're smart, you'll keep that a secret.

Response From Hammer Time

Joking?........ not hardly

I make a living off fixing the messes that their free advice causes

Response From speed

oh jokes huh!! lol i needed a part time job while im in the school quarter so i figured it was about as close to a part time job with cars as i could get since theyre open past 5pm lol

Response From speed

Hey we dont tell customers this code means this is the problem. So you need this. We tell this is a list of possible issues but is not for sure going to fix it since we cant do yhe proper tests here, and we only recommend parts if we know what thats the issue otherwise its heres your code we cant help with that so for any more information youll have to go to a shop. Thats at my store anyways i have been to autozones and i dont like them at all.

Response From Hammer Time

As you were advised in the beginning Speed, you would be smart to distance yourself from them and any idea that they know what they are talking about, especially around here

Response From nickwarner

Maybe your store has the sense to do that, but realize most of them push for sales with next to no knowledge. If you look at enough of the posts just on this site, you'll find many a victim of the counter monkeys.

Air ride malfunctioning... 94 Lincoln Mark VIII

Showing 2 out of 4 Posts | Show 2 Hidden Posts
Question From cruiser237 on Air ride malfunctioning... 94 Lincoln Mark VIII

94 Lincoln Mark VIII with 128,000 miles on it. Over all great condition.

The air shocks are full in the rear and all the way low in the front... so the car looks like a dragster: Propped up way to much in the rear, and dumped way too low in the front.


-How would I diagnose this problem? What could be a possible cause of this?


-Any advice will help, as I don't know much about Air Ride service.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Basics not specifics but check as follows:

I think all four wheels are air ride adjustable and perhaps have NO real metal spring back up if air pressure doesn't hold.

It's possible for an air leak in front NOT to leak out back - in fact likely. Sensors are probably rods or a roundinsh thing directly on a spot that would be located on a spot where actual lower control arms (road) holds the wheel and compare it to the body height.

I'm hoping for you that one of those is just sending bad info for ride height. If the front is leaking air out you may have a very confused system and somehow it's trying to compensate with more air that ends up to rear air struts.

THIS CRAP IS A COSTLY NIGHTMARE! As much as $6,000 bucks worth of stuff involved for a fancy system to both adjust for load in the vehicle and lower overall height for less wind drag at speed. Real cool till something goes wrong. If not a simple fix now the wild majority of folks go for replacing the whole system for a plain strut set up with no more headaches or expenses like this can be. When I was searching for the pic found sites that cater to deleting this set up for something like 600 bucks for all four wheels and you end up with new struts!

I'll find that again if you want to consider that.

Just get look for something obvious for now and let me/us know how you wish to approach this.....

___________

Of interest: I was with customer who wanted one new in 1993 MY and went along. I was shocked at the silence and performance over 100mph out of this car! Not my type or wishes but impressive. It's a VERY high tech road machine to be competition for the Euro high end sports cars. Still a nice regular driver without this feature IMO.

Response From Tom Greenleaf
Top Rated Answer

You won't be pleased with the expense of this! Start with a check of underside sensors that would be on suspension parts sensing the height - duh. Hope you find something unplugged or simple broken part visually.

They make kits to defeat the whole system which would be my choice as it's just too costly for little true benefit. Your call,

Response From cruiser237

I will check the sensors... is there anything else that could be causing this?

If an accumulator or pump went out in the front, would that cause the rear to be pushed way up like a low rider?
