Code p 0302 i cylinder 2 --misfire detected ===causes --- engine mechanical fault ( valve seat insert loose , burnt valve , cam followers/ hydraulic followers faulty)---wiring---ignition/fuel system---injector--ECT/MAF sensor ---ECM
possible injector fault ( blocked tip)
code p 0401 refers to exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system--insufficient floe detected ==== causes --hose leak/ blockage ---basic setting not carried out (if required)---wiring---EGR valve ---EGR solenoid ---ECM
as you admit to knowing little about cars , take it to an accredited service center that works on your make of vehicle and get a proper diagnosis and quote
Use the codes information and causes I have given you when discussing the problem

Check your gas cap. If someplace can test it you might luck out. This website advertises manuals and info online. The evaporator cannister is suppose to purify excess fuel vapors. But a system which is not sealed will code an error lamp.

SOURCE: heat wont work 2001 lincoln town car cartia

Hello Callahan5922....this sounds like a stuck blower motor resistor. I assume the blower won't function in the a/c mode either? If you have a digital multimeter you can check this. I believe it's fuse #2....if the digital indicator goes up or down when you increase or decrease the fan speed thats good. Locate the blower motor resistor....you wil find it located on the fire wall behind the right valve cover hiding behind the heater hose, it's about the size of a cigarette pack. With the engine off, and key in on position, turn the A/C on High, and rap a tap tap tap on the resistor. You might be suprised when the blower motor takes off a runnin,
I hope this is the answer you need and i was able to help solve this for you. Good luck...

I have a 2001 Lincoln Town Car with codes p1074 and p1074 and I was advised by a mechanic to replace the engine is that true?


Not sure on the code, it could be PO174. It may be an O2 sensor or problems with the intake and/or cyl heads.
I would make sure on the code and get a second opinion.
