Question about 1999 Lincoln Town Car

Not getting enough gas; 1997 Lincoln Towncar Signature Series

When pressing on the accelerator in my car; it does not accelerate right away, even when putting the pedal to the floor. Sometimes when you let up on the gas pedal, the car will go a little faster or slows even more. Other times it is fine. But does not matter if the car is warmed up or not. I could be going along good and all of a sudden the car slows down drastically to a crawl. (((I think it is my Fuel pump!)))

Any ideas and solutions?

I would check the fuel pump and fuel filter. Is your check engine light on? Do an OBD 2 scan to see if any codes come up. It could be your input or ouput sensor has gone bad. So once you do the OBD scan, you can then plot your next course of action

The car runs at idle speed but when you give it gas it take in alot of air and cuts off. 1994 Lincoln towncar signature series

My first guess would be the MAF sensor. It is located on the breather tube I believe right after the air intake filter. Try unplugging the MAF sensor plug and see if you notice a difference. If you do-you will obviously need to replace the sensor. Dont think you can just leave it unplugged and not buy a new sensor either because your gas mileage will take a serious talking like 7-10 mpg at best. Good luck!
