Question about 1999 Lincoln Continental
I don't have a solution for this problem but what the other guys said is true... I have a big problem with my 2000 continental. It idles at 2500rpm and if I try to drive it it won't shift until it reaches 4000 rpm. I tried iac, and mass air flow... Did nothing. Please help. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if anyone can help

The car will break up around 4000 rpm. This is normal for the conti and I owned 2 1998 models. If there is no laod (transmission not engaged) the rpm will break up so you dont over rev the engine. I consider myself an experts with all the work i have done on mine so relax, drink a beer and enjoy!

Hello, i first must ask why that engine would EVER be reved to 4000 RPM? it is likely you are up against the rev-limiter and your ignition is made not to over rev. be very careful....4000 RPM on that engine could/will severly damage your tourque convertor........very expensive it is common for the EGR passages on that model to plug up with carbon, remove valve, clean ports, and retest for low speed miss/hesitation, good luck....marty
