Question about 1996 Lincoln Continental
I took it to a mechanic and he told me the climate control head is bad and needs to be replaced. He can do this for a small fee of 1000 dollars, i only paid 3000 for the whole vehicle. i am wondering does anyone know how to repair the broken one or have a place where i can purchase a new one from and directions for installing the new one and unintsalling the old one. I have 3 kids 4-3- and 2 months old and we live in florida. i do not have the money to fix this but i defenintly need air for the kids before it starts getting super hot again please help thank you
Do check the refrigerant level. It can be user checked, and added. Find a refill kit at your local parts vendor which includes a meter. It may cost a few more bucks, but they are reusable. Follow the basic instructions - car on, cooler on high, etc.
If your system has been low, the compressor clutch will engage when the refrigerant level rises enough for it to engage. You may need to do this every other year or so.
If you do have a leak in the line, then the cool air will 'go missing' again real soon.

Not a fix but I took my 96 Continental to the largest Ford dealer in my area and they said that my problem was a climate control head. The system was fully flushed and recharged without any leaks. The part is $966 and $265 to install it. Gave me a part # of f70z19980ba. I hope I can find one used for less than $200. Good luck!!!
