    there are two coil packs mounted side by side. no matter which one you put in the position closest to the grill it does not FireWire which ever coil pack is in the position closest to the firewall works fine. something is stopping power from getting to the coil closest to the grill.

Aren't they airbag suspension on the 1995? I know for a fact that the 96 is. And I have had to replace the airbags on both sides of my 96. These airbags have been a major issue on the Lincolns. The way you can tell is look up in the fender well and see if you see a coil spring, then it is not an airbag suspension. You may know exactly what you are talking about and could have coil springs. But I was almost certain that the 94's is when they started putting the airbags in. If this is the case then, I would highly suggest taking it in to have the air bag replaced. The airbag is on top of the strut and they are expensive to replace. Then after you replace them, then you have to re align the front end. It is a pretty major job.

No fire to number one coil

before you go for the worst position, get first the spark plug out and check if it is burnt. Have you changed spark plugs before? Second If the spark plug is ok,then do a compression test,to see whether you do have any problem with either an inlet or exhaust valve. The other thing is since you swap coil,have you checked whether the faulty coil works or not on the other spark plug? if it is working and the good coil on the faulty cylinder does work then the fault is either on the coil side,or the wiring from the ECU to the coil is either broken,cracked,or shorted. The last thing you do then is the ECU.

Does a 2002 lincoln continental have front air ride I am replacing the rear with a coil conversion and want to know if this will hinder the front

the front does have air ride, and I do not believe that converting the rear should hinder the ride of your car. I would recommend replacing the front with a coil over system also. you can get the conversion through or like wise.

1993 Lincoln Continental V6 3.8L If the ignition coil is bad would the car start, run for awhile, then shut down and not restart until it sits for a while? It will turn over but not fire at...

The emissions problem Should Not cause a shut down, It sounds like the Ign module could still be the problem, (if something happened on instillation, as they are VERY fragile) or possibly the Crank Position Sensor, You should have a Scanner used on it to determine the exact problem or you could end up spending alot of money chasing the problem ? The Ign coil is NOT a common problem with the 3.8

No. they are different platforms and could result in a serious accident. they make conversion kits to eliminate the air ride suspension and are designed specifically for this particular car.

I have a 1994 lincoln continental and i am having problems getting it to fire. sometimes it will just fire up and the next it just quits firing. the coil,icm,pickupcoil,and cap and rotor

Hi, you listed coil, pickup coil and cap and rotor.if you allready replace those parts this can be another test, this can do what you are describing ,... leave the cap out so you can see the rotor, turn the crankshaft back and foward about 4 inches each way with a ratchet by the bolt head inside the balancing pulley, if the rotor dont move when you move the ratchet you have a bad timing chain.good luck
