Question about 1994 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

'94 Towncar Starts, runs fine, drives fine. Drive for 10-15 miles, misses, loses power, black smoke pours out of the exhaust pipes, and it shudders and dies. Wait 2 or 3 minutes, it will restart with perfect performance for 30,40, 50 miles, and it does it again. Had it scanned, no faults stored, but check engine light shudders and flashes like it has a loose connection when the car is doing its bad behavior. Any ideas

Have the crank position sensor checked. This sounds very familiar.

SOURCE: My 99 lincoln has only 20K miles. I had the car

I would check the air intake and filter first, make sure nothing has gotten inside and plugged up the intake. Black smoke is a good indicator that the fuel was not burnt properly, has lots of carbon in it, could be starving for air or you might have a stuck fuel injector. Way to many could be's to list.

I would have to agree that the shift lock acculater is going bad, Because if the transmission is shifting OK when it is in gear then the transmission is OK, But if you want to keep it that way you can change the trans fluid and filter and gasket, After doing that add a bottle of Prolong transmission treatment use the PROLONG TRANSMISSION ONLY itg can be bought at PEP BOYS or some other auto parts store's do not use any other type of treatment because the PROLONG is the best it treats the parts and the metal not the fluid, I put it in a ford LTD trans with over 200,000 miles on it and the trans is still working fine and now it has 278,899 miles on it.but also check the fuses and the locking system

Lost power smoke exhaust


If it is a 6 cylinder inline then catalyst is plugging up a easy test would be to remove a oxygen sensor and see if power returns to normal. V-8 models have 2 types of manifolds plastic and metal the metal ones have a plate bolted to the bottom which the gasket splits and sucks in engine oil causing all sorts of drive ability issues the plastic versions more trouble free but PCV ventilation system can cause smoking

Has the exhaust ( catalytic converter) been check for proper flow? I would try a test pipe to by-pass converter and see if that helps. You used to be able to buy them, but a good exhaust shop can make one pretty quick, and then try it.
