You have the same engine as a 96+ 4.6L Cobra (well 95% the same).
Are you trying to change the engine timing? You cant, its processor-controlled. There's no distributor so nothing to move there either.
To beef it up, get a new processor from someone that advertizes on the Mark VIII forums (NOT a chip kit that only works on wide-open throttle). Use AWSFA-12C Motorcraft spark plugs (they DO exist, make your dealer look up the part number), and get ACCEL coils. Nology wires if you can afford them. Get "Jerry's Mad" done to your transmission, and a high-stall converter (2700), and a cold air box, and a 160 degree thermostat. Underdrive pulleys from STEEDA (just use the crank and water pump pulley)
My car has all this and does 12.10 in the 1/4 mile with tools in the trunk and a full tank of gas!
Do the transmission mod anyways, or at LEAST change the fluid to full synthetic (MERCON 5). If you dont, it WILL burn out soon, very soon. Mine did and they arent cheap...and transmission shops dont know how to fix them.

My 1993 Lincoln Mark V111 won't start, won't even make a sound. The lights turn on but car won't.

Make sure the battery is strong enough to take a load, Ignition switch may be at fault, Check the starter wiring to make sure it is tight on the terminals, If you lightly tap on the starter while someone tries to start it, it may tell you the starter is worn out, but do this safely.

How do i replace the serpentine belt on a 98 mk vIII

Click on the following free direct Link. It has the correct Serpentine Belt Diagrams for your 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII for your 4.6L V8 Engine Options (AC/No AC etc.).

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information questions. Feel Free to contact me at!

Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.

Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them

Do you have to drop fuel tank to change fuel pump on 93 mark v111

The fuel pump is a submerged type located inside the gas tank. You need to drop the tank to get to it since it goes in thru the top. Major undertaking, The fuel FILTER is located behind the cowling on the passenger side front wheel well. Better get a shop/Chilton manual if you plan on doing it yourself or you can pick up the fuel pump at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools. Good luck and be safe, keep me posted be glad to answer any questions you may have.
