Question about 1998 Lincoln Town Car

Help with accumulator question.

When I purchased a compressor for a 1992 Lincoln Town Car from the auto store I was informed that I must also purchase and change the accumulator. Is this true? And if so, is there any steps I must take to change the accumulator?

Yes you must change the accum/dryer whrnever you open the system: once you open the system by removing lines from compressor moisture gets in the lines, this is what will cause your ac not to cool enough. the accun/dryer removes condensation from the freon,the accum/dryer is a low cost part compaired to compressor replacement and you will be unhappy i know if you skip the accum. replacement. once you have replaced everything (add new oil to compressor that is designed for the type of freon used) also replace all o-rings/or metal gaskets involved with parts removed/replaced! *****take your car to a mom and pop shop and get your system vacuume tested before freon install!!this is where they put a vaccum pump to your system and apply 30 lbs. vaccum to it and let it sit for an hour to check for leaks******it should hold the negative pressure,this also enables good flow of the new freon when charging and removes all air trapped inside that will take up space needed for proper charging and make your system less efficiant/cool.hope this helps...good luck

The accumulator is 17 years old, therefore it would be smart to replace it while the A/C compressor
is being replaced. There are no special steps for removal or replacement of the accumulator just
be sure all the fittings are tight.

What does the check engine light mean on the 92 town car.


If lit, it means that a DTC or diagnostic trouble code is stored in the computer.
Have it scanned or get the DTC interpreted by looking up the code in the service manual.

HAND-HELD SCAN TOOLS Although stored codes may be read through the flashing of the CHECK ENGINE or SERVICE ENGINE SOON lamp, the use of hand-held scan tools such as Ford's Self-Test Automatic Readout (STAR) tester or the second generation SUPER STAR II tester or their equivalent is highly recommended. There are many manufacturers of these tools; the purchaser must be certain that the tool is proper for the intended use. The scan tool allows any stored faults to be read from the engine controller memory. Use of the scan tool provides additional data during troubleshooting, but does not eliminate the use of the charts. The scan tool makes collecting information easier, but an operator familiar with the system must correctly interpret the data. Fig. 1: Super Star II tester - Ford Motor Co. 84924047.gif
Fig. 2: Inexpensive scan tools, such as this Auto Xray® , are available to interface with your Ford vehicle tccs4p11.jpg
Fig. 3: An economically friendly alternative is this Code Scanner® from SunPro. They are purchased according to manufacturer and are available at many parts stores 91054p14.jpg
Fig. 4: The Code Scanner® from SunPro has no LCD display, just a LED that will flash out the codes and an audible buzzer to alert that the test is in progress 91054p16.jpg

I have a 95 Lincoln Town Car. the air compressor


best bet is to go to an auto recycler, or scrap auto parts place! If they are reputable they will be on the locator, so if they don't have it, they can search North American yards for one!

Need a wiring diagram


Unfortunately, this type of information is not provided by the manufacturer's as a download. However, there still remain's a solution. You can go to most automotive supply stores, and purchase manuals for your vehicle that contain step by step proceedure's to repairing almost everything on your car, these manuals usually also detail the electrical wiring in diagrams in the back of the manuals.

You can find these manuals at most automotive stores such as Autozone, Petboys and such. They usually rin from $8 - $20+ depending on how detailed the manuals are.

98 Lincoln TC,Cold starts fine ,runs good until warm, then shuts off. No codes,Cranks ok, have spark, PATS ok. No fuel pressure, cant hear fuel pump prime,New Fuel relay. jumped fuel pump - works. I do not hear fuel pump prime up, do not have fuel gauge, but pressing on valve in fuel rail- no pressurized fuel. Fuel regulator seems ok, not leaking / vacuum line dry as a bone. If I let it set for 15 min , it will start up again, but for a few minutes then dies out. If I let it set overnight it starts up perfectly and runs until operating temp is reached then stalls/stumbles, and shuts down. Vacuum is good while cranking, even with no start, Checked Inertia switch in trunk, it is not tripped. I have seen Ford TSB summaries' that mention issues like this , but I am not able to see to description. A point to add, the MAF sensor was cleaned, then I decided to replace it and did not make a difference. I do not have any stored codes, and the PATS is working fine, typical 2 second flash from and once key is inserted a 3 second steady light, then disappears. I have seen the TSB mentioning C103 Connector, it looks fine, I swapped out fuel pump relay with ac relay, still no difference.mention of wires around battery, do not know where to start. in dash service engine light and odometer is normal, seen other posts the say they only have lines, but mine is ok. the start of all of this , I washed engine with regular garden hose, ( not using pressure washer).also in the mean time, rear window defroster stopped working as well, can not say for same reason, but a mention.My problem started after washing engine. this is one of four Panther platform vehicles I owned with exact 4.6l w code engine, which I rinced down before. The only sensor I can think of is Oil pressure , or a corroded wire
