Question about 2000 Lincoln Continental
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

The are ride height adjusters the look like arms. they are mounted on the bottom of the struts and lower control arms that control the height The can be adjust but for the most part if the were working fine before then they need to be replaced. Make sure that there are no leaks in the system.

I was having the same problem between 40 and 50 as well as the miss fires after changing a coil that was miss firing one it reached running temp. the problem vanished so check your coils.
