Question about 1998 Lincoln Continental
Car cranks but won't start. when temp rises some, can hear fuel pump and car starts and runs fine
I think I would try a new fuel pump relay. If it works, should be a cheap fix. If dealer's price is outrageous, try Napa or even a used one.

It could be one of two thing's, first idle-air bypass valve located on the throttle body ( Follow the hose up from the air filter, it goe's to the throttle body ) the idle-air bypass valve is bolted to the throttle body with two I believe 8mm bolt's, with one electrical connector going to it. The next could be the MAP sensor located under the hood upper passenger side of the fire wall this is also held in place with two 8mm bolt's and has one vacuum line going to it, hope this help's you.

This sounds like the PCM has taken a turn for the worst. The pcm relay sends power to the fuel relay for 2 seconds to prime the fuel system just before start up.
Then the pcm ungrouds the signal for a prove out.

possible just not probable. you need to see if there is any pressure to fuel rail. if not youre going to have to by pass the fuel pump and see if it is getting voltage. if so then apply a seperate voltage and ground wire to the pump to see if it kicks on. come to think of it, it could be the PATS system(security) that shuts down the system. it will crank but will not fire. your ford dealer will need to reprogram the system.

SOURCE: car wont start when hot
I have a 95 that had the same problem. After the dealer replaced most of the engine, it turned out to be a Power train module relay that cost about seven dollars. Your problem might be different, but it seems the relays get hot and will have to cool down before they allow the engine to start.
