I first had the lincoln shop check my '93 Continental to make sure it wasn't anything creepy like the o2 sensor. all was well (whew! that was a close one!! ;) it didn't cost much ($50) and those guys are different than other mechanics somehow..... I'm learning to work on cars and I figured i'd start on my "BRAND NEW old car." Here's what i did to solve that same problem: First check under the hood for any loose vacuum hoses, then there's a little grey square box ( size of a ring box) to the right of the manifold called the EGR valve pressure sensor .. Make sure it's hooked up and that it doesn't show signs of wear and need to replaced.( mine was fried, the Lincoln guy showed me) i replaced it myself (easy) it's around $50 bucks. Then if all else fails hit the net! I found a really cool site called: They have lots of easy to follow how to's and tech papers. The one I used for my "weirdo" random dash warning lights was: It takes real patience and can be time consuming but boy was it worth it! No more "false dash alarms". Things get corroded up after 18 years. I wish you much patience and good luck. p.s. if i "fixed ya" please rate me. thanks -jmattes

I have a 1994 Lincoln Contenental. Car drives just fine in first gear but will not shift into second gear.

If it is an automatic check and make sure that you have enough automatic transmission fluid in the car to little fluid will not allow the transmission to shift.

Rough idle on 2003 lincoln aviator

Hi! As a first course of action please check the sparkplugs. If the plugs are full of carbon this can cause a rough idle on the car. You will need to clean or replace the plugs if necessary. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Rough idle

check you throttle position sensor first then fuel pressure regulator, then fuel pump. i have a 92 and had to recently do a massive overhaul. my rough idle was caused by a malfunctioning tps with a small exaust leak causing it to race and an intake manifold gasket. also check your idle speed adjustment settings.
