I have a 1994 Lincoln Mark VIII and it starts but will only stay running with my foot on the gas, once I let off it looses power and it dies, it has been sitting for a while. It sometimes runs smooth at 1000 rpm but usually runs bad if below 2000 rpm, and it gets a burst and runs good for a second then dies, when it gets a burst it runs smooth, but when it dosent it runs rough, What do you think it could be?

Check your power to your fuel pump. Put your ear to the filler for the gas and get someone to turn on the key, do not crank.. You should here the fuel pump cut on. If not suspect pump problem. You can also take the lin loose at the fuel filter and check to see if gas comes out after key is turned on and work your way to the engine if you get gas there just follow the lines.
if you tried to jump the veh. when the batt. died, then you may have fried a fusable link in the harness. use a test lite to (CAREFULLY) look for voltage leading away from the batt. also you may want to check and see if someone can hear the relay click on as you try to start. (it is sometimes hard to hear it, so you want minimum back ground noise). good luck!
buy a set of factory manuals used. There is not just one picture.
the fuse box in the driving area is in the owners manual. The engine compartment diagram is in a book called Mark VIII Electrical Vacuum and Troubleshooting Manual.
