Question about 1997 Lincoln Continental
Car has been parked in upward incline for 24 hrs. Went to start the car no nothing. The gas meter reading says empty
The incline is apparently enough to have the feed from your tank exposed to air and not gas. If you can let the vehicle roll back and turn the wheel so your facing in the opposite direction before you attempt to start it again. This will allow the fuel to feed out of the tank like it is supposed to and should start fairly easily. Since the line is empty now, it make take a few seconds more than usual to prime with fuel and crank. Parking on inclines will get you if they're steep and your tank isn't full. Just remember this and next go round if you have to do this again, make sure your vehicle is parked in the opposite direction and the feed tube out of the tank will still be covered with gas.
