Question about 2001 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

Intermittent Skip under light acceleration

Just bought this car, 4.6 v8 2001 town car, when i got it, it had a misfire on cylinder 5, so i pulled the coil off, and checked the boot, which seemed to be in good working condition, I went ahead and put a new spark plug in it, and that seemd to fix the problem. i cleared the code, and drove it for about 100 miles, now, the skip is back (intermittently, only under light acceleration), but the code is gone

May still be a bad coil that just hasn't reached the number of misfires to set a trouble code.

SOURCE: 1999 Town Car began running very rough - suddenly.

When cleaning your engine, water/degreaser went down the spark plug ports. Try using a air compressor blow gun to remove the moisture from around the spark plugs and boots. The water was causing the engine to misfire on 3 cylinders at first and as the ports started to evaporate the moisture, the less misfiring was occuring. Dry thouroughly and hopefully coils do not have damage to them. Also check to make sure the boot is making good contact with the spark plug.

SOURCE: 02 navigator misfire #7 cyl still after i changed plugs and coil

You've tried everything but getting the timing checked out. You've done all the other parts of a tune-up but that.

When you changed the spark plugs did you notice #7 was especially dirty or greasy, this could point to a seal being broken or a piston ring that needs replacing.

Random Misfire


This can be due to a leaking pressure regulator and or the injector lines leaking. These are located under the plenum, which has the throttle body mounted in the center.

Would need my head under the bonnet to find the answer ,from your description it could now be a injector who knows but take the plug out and see if its all wet and black then go from this point as fault could be a coil pack /valves or fuel injector but as you havent stated year then again it could have a coil on each cylinder or a remove coil pack as you stated it has HT leads (wires)

I changed my spark plugs and afterwards the chech engine light came on. the jeep runs great. what can make that happen?


IT could be something such as a loose plug wire.The best advise I can give you is to take your jeep to your local auto parts store and have them pull the codes out of your on board computer.This will give you an area that you can concentrate on to make the necessary repairs to get your check engine light to go out.

Vsc & check engine light on. Code reads cylinder 2 misfire I have changed the plugs swaped coil with another cylinder swaped vsv's swaped injector plugs with another cylinder always shows misfire #2...


You may need to look at your exhaust system. If you have a leak, your O2 sensors will send the wrong reading to your engine which will in turn tell your engine to fire differently. Your code will come up reading as a misfired bank. See if you have an exhaust leak first, then see about changing out the O2 sensors behind the leak.

Cylinder 4 misfire on a 2000 crown victoria interceptor


first cylinder 4 is the last on the passenger side . first pull the coil out and check if there is water where the plug is. if there is take the water out and dry up the coil. if you find water you got a crack manifold or a bad intake manifold gasket. if there is no water replace the coil. good luck
