Question about 2002 Lincoln LS

1 Answer

02 LS cranks hard but starts

I bought this car from a personally owned car dealership. It will crank and crank and finally start. When it finally starts and you look at the exhaust pipes it has clouds of white smoke coming out of it. It smells like gas. I feel like the car isnt getting enough air to burn the gas. I cleaned the MAF sensor and have replace the crankshaft position sensor. I am honestly running out of money to fix this car. I have put almost 500 into just the cranking problem. I have a newborn daughter and i have to have this car to take her to the doctor and other appts. Someone please help.

SOURCE: replaced air condition compressor an is cranking but not starting

Check the crank sensor that is stuck in the block right by the A/C compressor. You had to unplug it to replace the compressor.

SOURCE: i smell gas when i crank up

This sounds like a choke problem or a fuel problem. The gas smell is coming out of your exhaust pipe. It has too much fuel for the engine to burn until it has time to clean the cylinders out a little by spinning it over for a longer period of time then you will get black smoke and a raw gas smell when it does start. Many things can contribute to this condition. The engine computer is controlling the amount of air and fuel that the engine gets. So I would begin there. With a diagnostic test. Also look at the spark control and the air intake system to make shure it is not stopped up

You say t pump is coming on, but do you fuel coming up to the fuel injector rail? You can check for fuel by pushing down the valve located at the left front side of fuel rail. It looks like a tire air fill stem. Be very careful as fuel is under 40 psi pressure and can spray all over the place. do this with engine OFF and have a rag to cover the valve. Just press with tip of screwdriver and be sure valve is covered. If a little gas come out,you know you have fuel. If not gas then check fuel delivery system i.e pump, filter, lines or pickup tube.

If there is fuel in the rail, then there is most likely a problem with the control module (computer).
Check for fault codes with an OBD II reader. You can usually rent one at your local part store. You can look up fault codes to find out where the problem might lie.

More questions, just leave in comments.

Good Luck.

2001 lincoln ls cranks but wont start


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

While pulling a small utility trailer with our 2008 Cadillac escalade we get off the freeway and start slowing down and suddenly, without warning the engine cuts out. When we try starting it again it...


1st check the spark plugs & wires
2nd check the alternator or starter
3nd check all sensors (crank shaft sensor, 02,)
finally the "brain" of the vehicle may be going out...

1995 AUDI 90 CS - Hard to start... spark & fuel OK


Have you tried replacing the starter? I know starters can go bad if the car is not started or run for a long time.

I am getting the same car, with the same issue.. it sat for 2 yrs and won't start.

My mechanic told me it is probably a starter.

Hard start


Hi teabag,

I too, once owned a '95 z28, fun car to drive, anyway HO chevy small blocks w/EFI are notorious for being beasts on a cold start. Try this when you get ready to start the car turn the ignition on but don't start let it set there a few seconds you should hear the fuel pumping waking up. Now instead of holding the key and letting it crank and crank, just hit enough to let the engine fire. Not only will lengthen the life of your starter it will lengthen the life of the fuel pump.
