Code 332 what exactley is the problem also 181 189
116 = engine coolant sensor out of range
172 = Right O2 sensor stuck on lean
176 = Left O2 sensor stuck on lean
181 & 189 = fuel system lean
332 = EGR valve not responding correctly
I would recommend you have the codes cleared and see how many come back a second time, then troubleshoot those.
Since the O2 sensors are working, it could be a vac leak or low fuel pressure among other things.

1993 lincoln town car wont start
and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train
are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM
(Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the
computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some
exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature
sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in
its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems
memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read
you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and
resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A
TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR
HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

Air suspension 93 lincoln town car
The air bags act as replacement or extra coil springs to hold the car up.
You might be able to replace them with coil springs from a Crown Vic.
That may cause problems with the front air bags and the rest of the system.

Where do i put the spark plug wires on a 1993 lincoln town car?
the ign coils on a town car has 2 of them this is not a standard Ign as the older one were if you have,nt removed them yet i suggest doing each one one at a time ....But if you have already removed them all you need to go a a parts store and buy yourself a manual for your type of vehicle and it should have some illastrations on where each goes ....hope this helped and good luck

Hesitation and sputtering
You have a 4.6 single overhead cam engine in your 93 tw as that is what mine has but as you were told it is probably the catalatic converters getting plugged up with that many miles miles on her it wouldnt be surprised and as far as as the how to read diagnostic codes Auto Zone sells a scanner to do that for around 300.00 I wasnt impressed with the scanner so i returned it and got my money back then went on E-Bay and bought a Snap-On 2500 series scanner and bought the cartridge for it and read all the codes it was giving it then proceeded to fix my 93 tc ...problem was not the same as your tho letting you knopw where i bought my scanner so maybe you can too ...FYI.... the ABS brakes have a seperate hook-up that a regular scanner wont read another reason i returned the auto Zone scanner , this older snap-on will read both sets of diagnostic and there is one more item that uses its own diagnostics and that is the A/C controller you will find all infomation on how to obtain any codes to help repair it ....Sorry this is so long but i belive this info will help a lot of people owning lincolns and grand marquies and Crown vics with ATC or EATC..

When my lincoln town car 1993 dies when i stop do i have a serious problem?
No read the fix below.
Engine stalling issue at low speeds
is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and
throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner from NAPA or
Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake
while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will
try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30
minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and
disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base
