you have to get a reading of the on board diagnostic system, Autozone read it for free . then they will print a code for you that will show which part is causing the problem (oxygen sensor or the catalytic converter )

SOURCE: 2002 Lincoln LS overheating

The cooling fan on the LS-V8 is hydraulic yes. But it also has a pressure switch on the pump that drives the fan. It is controlled by the temperature sensor. All these things must be taken into account. But the whining sound my lead me to believe that the pump is either low on fluid or is wearing out. The fluid the fan pump uses is the same as the power steering pump container so check it first. The same thing happened to my wife's Lincoln. I replaced the fan as well because everybody told me to do that but it didn't work. I found out that the fan is just a hydraulic motor in reverse it only spins as fast as the pump makes it spin and that is controlled by the temp. sensors. When the engine get's hotter the pressure goes up and the fan spins faster. This adds more power to the engine when it's running cooler because the fan doesn't have to spin at max speed. So good luck. I hope this has solved your problem.

Run a diagnostic check on the car. If these codes come up this is what they mean. C1233 No left wheel speed signal
C1234 No right front wheel speed signal

Replaced intake manifold in 1999 lincoln towncar now intermintent low rpm missing


My first guess would be a vac leak around one of the gaskets, or a hose is disconnected. A leaking gasket could change with the engine temp.

"Check Trac" lights comes on, temperature gauge shuts off when accelerating or at high speed with load


I have been checking every post about this problem and have replaced many parts and the problem continued but today i backed my 1999 town car up on the ramps and found my gremlin. I had a bundle of 3 wires coming out of my fuel sending unit and taking a rest on the nearby exhaust bend and were melted together and showing bare wire so i pulled them away from the exhaust and separated the 3 wires in question and taped them and made sure they would not be keeping company with the hot pipe any more and then took a long drive and all is well again.

telling me the trac light coming on could be a speed sensor problem, does your abs light come on as well? Does your speedometer, tachometer work good?

My 1998 towncar has an ABS,check trac and trac off light on. What sensors should I check because the air ride is fine and the brakes are fine. I travel on the inerstate 5 days a week abt 30 miles round...


Hello Leigha.

The problems you are describing are related to wheel speed sensors.
Because ABS and traction control depend on the input from the speed sensors from each of the wheels.
Most often when this problem occurs it will be one of the sensors, a bad connector or a broken wire in the harness to the sensors.
The easiest way to determine what the problem is, is to have the ABS system scanned for the code, or codes that have turned on the warning lights.
Make sure that whatever service center you take it to is experienced with such problems and has the proper scanning equipment to find the problem.
Your air suspension is not affected by this, they are separate systems.

If you would like further assistance regarding your problem please ask me in comments.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Radio/player display of 1999 Lincoln Towncar goes on and off randomly. How do I remove to check wiring connections.


Pick up a set of Din tools from your local auto parts store. These are used to remove the radio from the dash. Slide unit out & check the plugs.

ABS/traction control 1998 lincoln towncar


sounds like the brake pads may be metal to metal, that could be the noise problem, but until u have the system tested for the trouble code that is setin the ABS modules memory when the light comes on you are guessing, the Dealer is the only one in most cases that has the scan tool to check ABS trouble codes.

Gauges come back on....


electrical problem. take the truck to the dealer and have the computer checked / reprogrammed. unfortunately, your average mechanic cannot reprogram the computer. have you noticed any other problem that would point in the direction of an electrical problem (lights, radio, lighter, etc.)?
