Question From justme on 97 lincoln towncar. PLEASE

I went to start my car this am and it was backfiring, running very rough and then died. It started again and did the same thing. My husband is ready for a heart attact. I did fill the gas tank at a new place and wonder if I could have gotten bad gas. Please can someone help me.
Justme.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Hard to say from here. Bad gas which is rare would probably NOT backfire. More like an ignition problem like plug wires??

T

Response From justme

Thanks for the reply. My husband started it this am and it is now idiling but when you give it gas it stays at idle. You can floor it and it still stay at idle. Keeping your foot floored for a few min. rpm increase let up on gas pedal and then touch gas pedal rpm's increase, release gas pedal rpm's goes to idle. Hit the gas pedal again stays at idle. floor it stays at idle. then it repeats. Now I am the one ready to go nuts.
Justme

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Are they any codes? Service Engine Soon light on? Sounds like a problem with MAF (mass air flow) plain fuel pressure problem, or perhaps the TPS (throttle position sensor) -- I still doubt this is bad gas but how can I know from here?

Question From buckhunter on need help or answer about moduel 83 Mark

I have a 83 Lincoln mark 6 5.0, the moduel on the fender, has a plug in and a plug out, with the key on , the plug in has 1 hot wire and 1 cold, on the plug out, it has 4 male studs,two are hot and two are cold, is that right?? or should they all be hot ?? Thanks so much for your time. Bill

Response From Tom Greenleaf

What is wrong that you are checking this module for? Is this just a rela

T

Response From buckhunter Top Rated Answer

Hi Tom, Thanks for your time, I should have said it was the ignition module, well I took that to auto zone yesterday and had it tested and it pasted, as for what is going on, I am trying to get this 83 mark back on the road for class as it is the last full size lincoln mark 2 door made, the body is like new in and out but I can`t keep it running, well it will not start unless I put gas in the throttle body by hand, if I do it will start and run till I turn it off, then it will not start on its own,so it is not a hot or cold thing, as for what I have changed boy easier to say what I did not change, I have changed, Throttle body-throttle position sensor- fuel pressure regulator- fuel pump ( in tank )- fuel filter-ignition coil- crankshaft position sensor- voltage regulator- timing chain- solenoid- ignition module- EGR valve- Map sensor circuit- there is also 4 sensors 2 on each fender, I changed them also,1 head lights 1 fuel pump, not sure what the other 2 are for but there changed, So Tom you asked you got it !! the one thing I can think of but don`t know how it works is, " What tells the injection to open or spray the fuel in the throttle body to start? I guess that is the trouble as I said when I pour gas in it will start, it just will not dump the gas in to start on its own, I have been worken on this for five years Tom I sure hope you have some idea, Thanks again Tom.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Hi,

I do know a fair amount about the old Lincoln's and not so much with the Marks but this ones shares a lot with the Town Cars that I do know fairly well.

You've replaced enough stuff for now that I'll consider ruled out so let's see what's the possible gremlin now.

Runs when primed but won't restart on it's own cold or warm. This leads to a fuel pressure problem.

Here's some ideas: Battery is marginal and the power for the fuel pump can't keep up a decent minimum pressure while cranking but as soon as an engine starts the alternator is pumping power back in so it behaves. Check for voltage drop at the battery while the starter is cranking - this would be interesting. If this alone was the problem a good jump start would work.

Relays are a pill on these. They aren't marked but they do use colors at the skirts of the relay and the connectors I think. Green is for the fuel pump. It may be making a lousy contact and not providing enough amps. Originals won't fit each other but you can get a generic aftermarket one that will fit them all. I forget the part # but it's like Echlin's # AR242 or something - you'll need to ask and it's worth a try. The relays are on the driver's fender under a plastic rain sheild on the TCs and Crown Vics, Grand Marquis and can just be bent up to access or an 8mm or 5/16 couple nuts take the braket away so you can fuss to remove them with like a 1/8th slotted screwdriver. I'm guessing they are the same style as most the 80s full size Ford products. It's really worth getting one as it will fit all the others and if it doesn't fix the problem save it as I do - each of my two driver's have spares in glovebox - they are that much trouble with some of these. Sometimes just a good whack on them with the plastic of a screwdriver handle snaps them to for a while - not a fix. They look like old ignition points inside and are not servicable.

There should be a shut down resettable switch in the trunk with a red plunger - perhaps hidden on driver's side in or around the trunk hinge or behind some side carpet toward rear quarter panel. That might be making a bad contact even if not tripped fully. AYOR - if just a two wire switch unplugging it and jumping the plug connector defeats it. Don't leave it that way - just for testing for a moment!

They did that for the muliport FI systems and I'm not sure what the fuel delivery set up is for 83. Does this use central fuel injection or have the individual injectors - Marks did thing a year or more before the other similar full size Ford cars.

Hope this is the right direction for the possible trouble now. Just what I mentioned is cheap or free to try. Those relays should be about $15 bucks or less now,

Response From buckhunter

Hi Tom, well it just so happen I was out trying to find something on the Mark, no good, so I came in and found your reply, Thanks, Ok let me reply to yours now, first off the battery is kind of new, and I have a float charge on it so it stays full charged all the time as I fool with it when ever I can, so I need to be sure the battery is up, next, Yes the fuel is the green one, I already changed that as well as the one next to it and the ones on the driver side, As for the shut down ' inertia " switch in the trunk, I checked that also, and then I un,hooked the fuel line on the frame and turn on the key and gas flew everywhere so that is ok, last but not least, yes it has the central fuel injection, two injectors in top of throttle body, I feel that is where the trouble is, I am sure there is something that tells the injector to spray gas in to start and what ever it is its not worken, but I don`t know what tells it to spray, and seems know one else knows ether as I been asking everybody, as for cost of any parts I have to much in it now to quit, hell if I don`t get it running before I die I am getting buryed in it.LOL, Ok Buddy see if you can remember anything else I can try, Thanks Bill

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Ok: Here's one problem I have. Out of literally hundreds of similar fuel delivery systems in Ford products not one ever had this exact behaviour and there simply must be some sensor or device that delivers fuel differently just during the cranking mode. I just plain don't know what that would be so I need help now too. I would bet that you would notice a fuel pressure drop while cranking or no pulse to injection just during cranking and again I don't know what controls that.

Some assorted cars that did this cranked fast enough that they would just "catch" when you let go of the starter and you could go from there. Most of that could be solved by just leaving key in "run" position till fuel pressure built up and was available for cranking instantly which basically solved the problem without further investigation.

You may have injector leak down or somehow air pressure is only at the fuel pressured line for that important second as you said if you primed it the couple seconds it runs on the prime allowed it to switch over to a running settings.

Had I already been thru this I would know right where to test for what but don't - dammit. Either fuel pressure is lost or pulse to injectors is OFF for that period of cranking. Perhaps a wire at the starter motor is directed to something to activate things for just the crank mode. Even in 83 there are thing to disable the engine from running and dump fuel out a broken line like in an accident - the enertia swich does that. I don't know what or where the trigger to shut it down is as it never happened.

I'm also short of the best diagrams and info for all cars. Some of the guys might have it here or just know where to look.

I hope they have read this far - we get busy and sometimes don't follow along when one knows another is on a situation.

Could be a passerby reading this thread who knows or the regulars here that I think are most likely to have more help would be ............. What I'll do is make a new thread that refers to this one and I/we need some help - ok?

Bill,

Guys have helped already and let this continue at the thread above. Has a help line # and we should be done with this problem in short order I hope. There is a "prime" mode I was unaware of - just follow that thread for now.

I'm a Lincoln nut for select models as is well known by some regulars at the site I wan't to know how to fix this too! If difficult to get a part new or used and the same fits an 89 TC let me know - I'm parting one out and you can have the part for shipping!

01' Lincoln LS V8

Question From dpartain on 01' Lincoln LS V8

Year of vehicle: 2001
Make of vehicle: Lincoln
Model of vehicle: LS
Engine size: 3.9L
Mileage/Kilometers: 128,496 M

I bought my car in 05' and haven't really had any problems until the last year or so. So far I've had the oil changed on or about every 3,000 miles. I've gotten the following all changed or fixed. Spark plugs, tire rod ends, struts, new battery, mass air flow, air induction, ignition coil boot, new tires x2.

Just recently the ABS light started coming on as well as the engine light. Solid just until the car warms up and then off and on for the rest of the time driving. I live in Atlanta so its not too ridiculously cold but could that be the problem? Also, if I don't let the car warm up in the morning, it smells when I brake. Can't really say it's specific to anything but I am no car buff by any means. Oh also the car putters when I'm stopped, and again once we reach 40-50 m/h. I don't know why, but it seemed to start right after we took it in to get the oil changed one time. They messed with the idle and now it idles around 500-700.

Your response is greatly appreciated!

Response From Loren Champlain Sr Top Rated Answer

dpartain; The ABS lamp could be on due to low brake fluid level. However, since you have a check engine lamp illuminating also, I'm going to surmise that it may be a wheel speed sensor problem. Once the CEL illuminates, it will store a trouble code which can be retrieved with a scan tool to head you in the correct direction. You mentioned that they 'messed with the idle speed'. This should not have been done. The idle speed is controlled by the computer. If the 'hard stop' was manually adjusted to increase the idle speed, that will 'throw off' the TPS (throttle position sensor) and cause more problems, which include transmission shifting. Have the PCM and ABS systems scanned for trouble codes. You can post the codes here before you 'spend' any money.

Response From dpartain

First off I want to say thanks for even taking your time to read my "blog/problem"... And so quickly to a response. Wow! It's nice to get feedback/helpful hints w/o paying an arm and a leg! Okay, so like I mentioned I am light years behind the average person when it comes to knowing about any aspect of car/trucks/suv's/mtv's etc... So your suggesting that I take it to a local Auto Zone/Advanced Auto Parts to get the trouble codes? Also, how should I go about finding out why my ABS is on/off? Tell "Jiffy Lube/Goodyear" to top the brake fluid level when I get my oil changed? And you mentioned that it could be a speed sensor problem? Will that have anything to do with fuses? I'm sorry, I should know a little bit more about these things but somehow I have seemed to manage/get lucky until now.

Before they messed with the idle, my car idled around 1000. So they lowered it. This work was done back in July 2009. You see, we initially had that kicking/puttering problem and took it back to Monroe a few times but they said that there was nothing wrong with the car and that it's just the "normal wear and tear" that happens to a car after 9 years. So a couple months passed and out of the blue it stopped kicking/puttering. And now its back... And not only that but for some reason it doesn't always start the first go around. Its weird because like 96% of the time it will start first go around (1st time its started for the day) and then once its been started/turned off a couple of times, it takes up to 3 tries from then on out for the rest of the day. I don't know if that made any sense to you but like lets say I for some reason I make 7 stops and each time I turned off the car. It would probably start the first time for 2 of the stops. But for the last 5 it would take multiple turn overs. I've been told its the starter, the transmission, some kind of leak in an air valve???. All of which were dealerships and car shops assuming trying to squeeze me for every penny and then some because I am car illiterate.

Lastly, I get a horrible smell every now and then when I'm stopped at a light. I suspect its my brakes but then again who am I to suspect anything. Could this be its just low on brake fluid as well? I mean it really gets going pretty good and seems to fog up the car until I let the windows down for a min until the light turns green.

Thanks for your time!

Dustin

Response From Loren Champlain Sr

dpartain; Yes, have the codes retrieved and post them for us to see. It isn't ethical to 'bad mouth' other business', but Jiffy Lube/Goodyear are oil change/tire shops. Some have tried to 'expand' into other areas, but in my area, with not much success. I'm sure they 'mean' well. Do not feel bad about not knowing automotive technologies. Autos have changed. Back in the 60s and 70s, anyone with anything more than a brain could work on these things. It is no different than any other profession. There are a lot of things that I have not a clue of how it works. So, we're even. LOL. IMHO, there's no such thing as 'normal wear and tear'. If it doesn't work, there's a reason why. Yes, something may be worn out, but it's 'fixable'. I would like to see fuel pressure tests; Cold, KOEO, KOER for the starting problems.
From your post, I'm assuming that you don't want to do any testing yourself. Find a shop that you feel you can trust. Talk with friends, relatives, enemies, BBB.

This could be from a vacuum leak. The heater controls are controlled by vacuum operated dashpots. If the engine isn't running properly, or one of the dashpots are faulty, this could be causing the problem. Or, a leaking heater core.
Anti-freeze has a sweet smell. Could be what you are smelling?

Response From dpartain

Alright, so I have been all over Atlanta today. I visited (2) AutoZones because the code I received had to do something with spark plugs... I had to go to different AutoZones because I was a little weary as to believe them being that I just got my spark plugs change a couple of months ago. And then the dude basically told me to smell the roses and that it didn't necessarily have to do with the spark plugs.

Below is pretty much word for word the codes/printout they gave me:

TROUBLESHOOTING P0308
OEM Brand: DOMESTIC

Definition
Cylinder misfire detected-cylinder number 8
Explanation
The powertrain control module monitors the crankshaft speed and has detected a misfire condition
Probable Cause
Ignition system fault-spark plug(s), ignition wires, coil
Vacuum leak
Injector Fault
High or low fuel pressure

Definition
Cylinder misfire detected-cylinder number 5
Explanation
The powertrain control module monitors the crankshaft speed and has detected a misfire condition
Probable Cause
Ignition system fault-spark plug(s), ignition wires, coil
Vacuum leak
Injector Fault
High or low fuel pressure

They said they couldn't check the ABS and I wasn't done getting consumer reviews on car shops/mechanics.

Response From way2old

Those engines are really bad about burning holes in the coil boots where they go down in the head. #8 is on the drivers side rear plug. Rempve the coil and boot and look closely at the boot to see if there is any sign of arcing through the boot. Coils go for about 50$ and boots are about 7 at Autozone. The ABS light needs to be read by a higher quality scan tool than AZ uses. Most places will charge about 1/2 hour diagnostic charge to read the codes.

Response From aireeca

OK, the 2000 Lincoln LS V8 belonging to a coworker is throwing a p0305 code, but only when there's a bunch of moisture around (car washes, really rainy days). Any thoughts?

Response From Loren Champlain Sr

P0305 is misfire, cylinder #5. If it only misfires in damp conditions, I'd suspect secondary. (forward most cylinder, left bank). This is COP type. Common for the COP boots to form a carbon track in the inside. Should always replace them when replacing plugs. Also, use dielectric grease on the inside of the boot when installing.

Response From Loren Champlain Sr

The P0305 and P0308 are both misfire codes for cylinders #5 & #8. Those two cylinders are the front and rear on the left bank. A very common cause of misfires on these 'coil over plug' engines is either the coil or the insulator. The top picture shows the insulator which attaches the coil to the spark plug. These will get a carbon track on the inside which you have to look very closely to see, if at all. It's also possible that the porcelain on the spark plugs were cracked during installation? A quick, easy test, would be to put #5 coil on #6 cylinder, and #8 coil on #7 cylinder, clear codes, and see if the misfires change cylinders. (examine the spark plugs and insulators on 5 and 8 while you have the coils off). There are other causes of misfires, as well, but let's start with the most common ones, first. Dirty or clogged injectors are also common. Have you had the injectors cleaned? Should be done about every 40K.

Response From dpartain

Okay. I'll see if that is at all possible for me to do. Ill look for some manuals online to see step by step. Bc trust me I need it. On the other hand, if that doesn't go so swell ill just take it to a mechanic. That is of course when I actually find one that I can trust. As for the fuel injectors cleaned.... that is a yes. But for the coils... its kinda been on the hush. When the spark plugs were changed out a couple of months ago the mechanics mentioned changing out the coils as well but I didnt know if it was a scam. Because they told us that they couldnt tell if the coils were bad until they took them off. But if they took them off there was a chance that they could brake because they are fagile? So we just stuck with the new spark plugs. From what I have heard coils are an expensive piece of candy. The mechanics that changed the sparks quoted us like $600+ to have them replaced.

Response From steve01832

The idle is computer controlled. If they try turning the idle speed stop screw, the computer will compensate by running the idle air control motor in or out to get the idle back to the target speed. The only thing I can see, if they took the screw to the point that the computer can't find the target speed, that can give you a MIL. They would have had to take it to the point that the computer couldn't get the speed within its specified parameters.
I don't understand why they would have tried to adjust it anyway, unless there is another problem and they were trying to mickey mouse it.
