Question about 1996 Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

1996 Lincoln Continental rear ended started once and that's it

I have a 1996 Lincoln Continental. I was rear ended and they hit my bumper and tail light on the driver side. I waited until police arrived to see how the car was positioned before I moved it. I turned the car off as soon as the accident happened. I started the car and moved it over to the side after police got there. When it came time to leave the car wouldn't start. There was a clicking noise when it was trying to turn over. I tried putting in in neutral, drive and reverse. I also tried positioning the ignition in different places. The car is repairable but can anybody tell me why it started the once and not again. Thanks for the help.

    Thanks alot!! I finally got the insurance company to release my vehicle after I turned down their offer. They were trying to total it. We replaced the battery because the old one wouldn't hold a charge. She is cranking right up now. Thanks very much, Gina

The jolt has caused a loose battery clamp or loose wires on the starter or a dead battery

DOES 1996 LINCOLN HAVE AIR BAGS IN FRONT? IS IT HARD TO CONVERT THE REAR TO SPRINGS?


No. The Lincoln Continental does not have air bags in the front. It is not exactly hard to convert the rear airbags to springs. It is more time consuming than anything. I have a 1996 Town Car, I had a mechanic replace the air shocks with springs.

I need to remove the rear seat of a 96 Lincoln Continental


Push the lower seat cushion toward the rear of the car and lift, there's 2 hooks approx. 12" or so either side of the center of the seat.
The seat back is held in with 2 bolt located on the lower outside corners.

You'll have to unbolt the seatbelts from the floor to completely remove the seat back.

Rear air shocks 1998 lincoln continental deflate when parked


My Grandma marquis did the same thing, I thought that was normal, it slowly goes down when you shut it off and slowly goes up when you start it, It didn't hit the ground or anything, but then it finally did die altogether, years later, and then it hit the ground, so I got regular shocks back there and it rode fine, stayed level, it is now resting in the junkyard in a shallow unmarked grave. It was a nice car.

Have you checked your spare tire? That and the jack for your car can work their way loose.

The rear swaybar can make noise but a visual inspection when the airbags were done should have shown up. The tailpipe can hit the frame or your rear bumper may be loose. The gastank can be loose.

Another area is inside the rear seat. There is an extra seatbelt for rear passengers and the end can swing freely under the seat. Would like to know what you found.
