Question about 1996 Lincoln Continental
When I go to start the engine in 80 degree weather after the car is sitting for 10 minutes or more it hesitates flutters&stalls. Itry starting again it flutters for 30 seconds and then starts to run normal. It only does this in very wam weather.
This sounds like it may be as simple as cleaning the water or gunk out of the gas tank which is what I always do 1st because it's easy and inexpensive.
If your fuel is contaminated with gunk, grime, water and/or bottom junk like rust this will cause stalling!
Try spraying a can of starter fluid in the air intake and see if it runs! If it does, it's most likely bad fuel or clogged injectors so....
Fill the tank with High Test, Add some dry gas and a good fuel system cleaner or 2 or 3 and this should dissolve all the gunk and clean the injectors! Read & follow the cans' instruction carefully.
If this cures the problem never let your gas tank get below 1/4 and especially never run it to empty as this is when the gunk and/or water will enter the system!
Hope this helps!

Throttle speed contol valve is dirty. You can take it off easily, just two bolts. Get some throttle body cleaner and spray it into the valve body, then blow it out with compressed air. Rebolt it and crank your car up. You will notice a difference immediately. The whole car will run smoother.
Please remember to rate this fix.
