I have a 1997 Town Car and it runs perfectly fine until i park it, then try to start it and put it in gear, it will start up just fine with no noises, and the battery, lights, and everything else is fine,...


Check to see if your brake lights come on when the brake pedal is depressed. If they do not come on, the problem could be the brake light switch or associated connector/wiring. The brake light circuit controls the solenoid (control) that allows the shifter to come out of the park position. The brake light switch is connected to the brake pedal arm. You May have to remove a cover panel (three plactic retainers) to see the switch. A possible solution is to turn the ignition key to the 1st position, then shift the car into neutral. This should allow you to start the car and shift into any gear. HOWEVER, you may not have brake lights (use hand signals) and when you park, use the emergency brake after stopping, shif the car to neutral and not PARK. This will allow use of your car until you can get it properly fixed.

Shuts down going down the road shuts off completely


vehicle shuts down while driving down road and does not start backup for at least 20 minutes, could be a bad crank sensor. if bad it will start and run fine, but it will keep shutting down until fixed.

Well did you say u replaced the engine? Well if thats the case you may have a clogged cat CONVERTOR. to start out, first we need to remove the bolts from the exhaust manafold to the down pipe.try to prop the pipe slightly away (about an inch) from the manafold.(WE ARE REMOVING THE CONVERTOR FROM THE ENGINE IN A SENSE) start the car (it will be loud,and take a short test drive.If the car no longer chuggs, replace the cat CONVERTOR.good luck
