1990 Lincoln mark VII lsc

I just bought a used 1990 lincoln mark 7.. It runs really well & theres nothing wrong with it,but the only obvious thing that i notice,is that the front side is always lower then the back.. The back side goes up when i drive & down when i park,but the front is just completely dead. I figuerd it has somthing to do with its suspension???????????? Does anybody know or have any idea how serious this is?? -thanks

    I have a friend with a mark VII and the rod for the pumps piston came off and will no longer stay on. I suggested a coil spring kit to replace the old system that had other minor problems. Where might a person look for a kit?

    your mark 7 sounds like it has air shocks in the rear. If so it's fine

Experienced problem after problem with my suspension on my 1990 LSC. Finally contacted "Strut Masters" online and replaced my entire system with a conversion for less than 400 and an afternoon. Installation was simple.

Your problem isnt air leaks it is diagnostic problems in the cars vent solenoid circuit and raise/lower circuits. it could be costly to repair "like new". the best solution (as i did with my mark vii) is a coil conversion kit which can be Googled on line to find the many manufactures. buy a good kit because some of the coils are not strong enough to support the weight of the car (as i found out with my mark vii).

It's possible that the air suspension is turned off, or that the electronics for the front end of the system are damaged. also possible that somone already replaced the back air bags and not the front leaving the system incomplete and therfore not working in front. i have the same car and have noticed that if i leave it sit for a few days the back end will sag almost to the ground (slow leak in rear bag system) however, the car levels itself while it's running.

since i paid $500.00 for the car i'm not about to convert the suspension, i have heard that if you remove the air bags and test them for leaks that they can be as easily repaired as any other pice of rubber that holds air pressure, if the air bags are not visibly ripped, then the fault is most likely in another part of the system, because the onboard air pump should level out the car even if the bags have slow leaks. i would not reccomend converting to springs unless you are going to race your car, air suspension is what makes the ride so smooth, it's a major feature on this vehicle and it just wouldn't be the same without it.

Best solution is to replace your air ride with the coil conversion.
I replaced the air ride bags & compressor on mine & it only lasted a year & a half.
The conversion is a cheaper option & rides as smooth as the air ride.

I own a 1990 lincoln mark 7 LSC. My radio ( am- fm cassette ) is dead I'm loking for a factory am-fm cd radio or a replacement that when installed looks close to factory any suggestions?

Your best bet is getting a replacement from your local Junk Yard, this way you won't have to make any adjustments to the wiring since the plugs will be the same.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!

Have had 1989 Lincoln Mark 7 LSC for 5 years she never failed to start. One day she wouldn't start thought mabey she was out of fuel put in 2 gallons. Still no go. Found fuel pump was not running. Shutoff...

Generally a relay is used instead of a fusses. Look under hood for a relay panel.. substitution is the easiest way to find failed relay.
I had similar symptom on my Towncar....found that adjacent relays were same part number. Pulled the horn relay....substituted it for the fuel relay...then replace with a new one.. Did not leave the defective one in place of horn relay. There may be other circuits on the same relay. Be careful !

I have a 1992 Lincoln Mark vii lsc. Fuel pump problem!

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.
