This could be MANY problems. To start with does this 83 Lincoln have a carburetor or fuel injection? If carbureted you may have a clogged carburetor that needs a serious cleaning. The choke could be stuck causing your motor not to get enough oxygen until you step on the accelerator all the way.

Best to have a professional take a look at it. In the mean time I'd suggest switching to a higher octane gas and adding some SEAFOAM to the gas, and into the oil(crankcase) to clean out the fuel system.

2000 linclon ls with no codes sputters upon accleration


mass air flow sensor or the throttle body needs to be cleaned .first take the intake hose of the throttle body and spray the inside the the throttle body with throttle body spray. there is a pin hole under the flap or the butterfly that lets a little air in make sure that is allso cleaned out. let it sit and see if that fixes it. if not (MAS )sensor would be my next guess.

1989 Lincoln Town Car will start no problem, has good gas, but will not idle, so when I put it in reverse to back out of my driveway it stalls. Now there is no heat in car either (possibly heater core) but...


you may need too clean the throttle body .go to the part store buy some throttle body cleaner spray.then remove the big black hose from the throttle body on the top of the engine. with a soft tooth brush open the throttle full. spray the black gunk on the blade and in the barrel. then with the tooth brush scrub the black gunk. spray clean . reattach the hose.when you first start hold the throttle open full until it starts and runs smooth.or just above 2000 rpm .then let idle for two minuets. before you put in to gear.

My 1995 Lincoln Town Car starts when it wants to


The next time your Town Car fails to start, Try holding the throttle open slightly and cranking the engine. If it starts and will stay running while holding the throttle, it is likely that the Idle Air Control valve will need replaced. The valve is bolted to the upper intake right behind the throttle body.
