Question about 1989 Lincoln Town Car
The above car has 85,000 miles, original 5.0 engine, except for normal maintenance items (including fuel filter replacement and PCV valve) and is in excellent condition. There is no "check engine" light. However, it has developed an irregular "stumble" at mid speed, or cruise, operation. If the car were carburetor equipped, I would describe the problem as perhaps similar to vacuum leaks in an old carburetor. I am in the Greensboro, NC area and have not found anyone competent to look at it. So, I am forced to try myself. I am an aircraft mechanic, so I have a clue, but don't want to be too arrogant :-). Is it possible to find some way to check for fault codes or does this car a common problem that occurs? Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks, Rick
Sorry I haven't replied sooner, thats why I asked about the pulling the trailer feeling, it usually is caused by the EGR valve

I suspect a vacuum leak, rubber does break down faster when exposed to heat
