Question about 2000 Lincoln Continental

2 Answers

My 2000 Lincoln Continental runs fine when it is cold, but after it warms up and I am driving between 20 & about 50 MPH the engion cuts out - the whole car shakes while trying to maintain a speed or accelerate slowly. The car only has 62K on it. I think the problem is in the ignition. What do you think?

I just got a 1998 Lincoln Continental 4.6 and I just replaced the transmission. I noticed that there is a hiccup or misfire when I do a slow acceleration or am cursing at any speed. I have replaced all coils and the wires. There are no codes showing. I had a mechanic look at it and he said the the fuel flow was fine. Where do I go from here. I saw something about air in the fuel line possibly, but how would it get there. I do keep the tank full most of the time.

I think it might be a fuel delivery problem.I would check the fuel pressure and make sure its within the specs for that engine.Its sounds like it could be a weak fuel pump.When ever the engine does'nt get enough fuel to mix with the air then it causes a lean condition which will make it misfire.If it was an ignition problem it would misfire whether it was cold or hot.

SOURCE: which ignition coil is bad?

I went thru this on my 2002 LS as well.
I replaced one ignition coil at the dealer - only to get the same misfire code on another cylinder. After a little research found out is actuall a gasket/o-ring problem design of the block. Spark plugs are deep in the block - under the oil - which is why they are supposed to last 100,000 miles. But the o-rings start to leak some where between 65k-85k miles. Coils go bad because of oil contamination. If you don't solve leaking oil problem will have to replace coils again - but sooner - because leaking oil will be progressively worse.
Cost - 8 ignition coils
set of spark plugs (who knew they were that expensive
and a ton of cash for the labor to tear down the top of the motor

1999 Lincoln Continental heater blows cold air while driving

Sounds like your thermostat may be stuck open. When the wind moves in front of your car, it chills the Radiator and drops the temperature. All the other settings for Heat, like ductwork and waterflow are in the same positions sitting as moving.

While driving approx 50 MPH, my wife's check engine light came on in her 2002 Lincoln Continental, shortly after she noticed a white smoke coming out of her exhaust, anyone got any ideas?

Bad sign. If it is running and not knocking take it to Auto Zone and ask them to read the fault codes. Most likely it is going to be a Faulty O2 sensor that triggered the check engine light but the white smoke is another issue. Your going to want to do a compression check and see if you lost compression on any cylinders. If you have your are looking at a major repair.
