Question about 1998 Lincoln Continental

2 Answers

Engine speed will increase all by itself while car is driving along. Engine speed will stay high and sometime increase when at a stop sign. I will put in park and turn off engine, restart and engine speed will return to normal.

I had the same problem as well. A $20 throttle position sensor resolved it. It was an easy fix. It's on the side of the throttle body. You may need to loosen the throttle body to get it off. Don't drop the screws inside the intake manifold!

I had the same problem. I changed the throttle position sensor (TPS). I haven't had any trouble since I replaced mine about three months ago.

under the dash, above the break peddle are two switches, check for adjustment of those switches . one is for the break lights and another one is for the solenoid what is locking your shifter.

SOURCE: Air Suspension system Problem 1990 Lincoln Towncar

Unplugging the Connector will cause the Check Suspension light to come on as its listed as a fault as it cant run.

But with it unplugged the compressor shouldnt been able to start. If you want to kill the compressor pull its relay from the engine bay. located above the battery.

But i'd suggest correcting the fault as if those bags do pop your going to end up being grounded. as the rear will drop a fair bit!

SOURCE: The gear shift on my 1998 Lincoln Navigator is

It can be either the shift cable or the Automatic parking brake release.
With your vehicle stalling it sounds like the parking brake release is leaking vacuum and causing stalling.

You can check with Autozone or Oreillys to see if there is an aftermarket part for that. Then locate the Auot release on your vehicle and when you take it off, slide the parts within the fixture to verify sticking.

How to reset memory


When ever the engine electrical has been disconnected for a while such as while you are doing some major work on the engine and you disconnect the battery or even if you switch engines the computer will need to relearn the driving habits so to speak. Start the vehicle and let idle for five minutes the put the vehicle in gear and slowly pull out. Drive in a gentle way for 5- 10 miles then slowly you increase the speed. do not just romp into it. It can take several days of normal driving before the computer has relearned the driver information. I take a nice drive through the neighbor hood stopping at stop signs slowly speeding up and slowing down before I go out on the high way. I then take about a 50 mile trip where the speed limits vary from 40 to interstate speed. Once the computer has completed the relearning it will idle and drive smoother for you. Hope this helps.

Because the whine is still happening at high speed when your in neutral and low rpms it should not be engine or tranny related. I would start looking at wheel related issues. Hubs probably.

94 cadillac deville dies when i slow down


I have seen this problem before and the cause could be TCC Staying in Lock-up or an Electrical Issue within the Engine itself or a Fuel Delivery Issue.

If the Transmission TCC is the issue, try driving at slower speeds (below 30 and come to a stop, does it Shut off then? Increase Speed by 10 and try again. Does it react differently once you go above 42-45 MPH?

You have a mechanical bind. Disconnect the main linkage and work it all by hand. Everything should be free and slopy. Aerosol carb cleaner will help, but only when the engine is not running.

When I come to a stop, the car dies. After idling for a few moments, the RPMs start dropping below 1000 and the car dies sometimes. What's my problem? I just replaced a fuel filter, and it was running...


Here are the common cause of surges, cold stalls, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
