Sounds like you are in for a pricey repair, replace the compressor and have the system recharged or simply unplug the power to the magnetic clutch and roll the windows down when it gets too hot inside the car.
By unplugging the compressors power supply at least the engine will not be spinning a bad compressor. The drive belt will simply spin the pulley without turning the compressor no matter what settings you choose inside the car.
Expect at least 4 or 5 hundred dollars for a system cleaning ,compressor replacement and system recharge. Chances are the compressor has now contaminated the complete system with shards of material that can possibly ruin a new compressor if the system is not totally cleaned.

SOURCE: The heater in my 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC

You have a problem with your blend door actuator. Every year, twice a year, my husband manually moves the blend door actuator and puts a tie wrap on it so it will stay in either the heat or cool position. You can reach this through the glovebox, which you will need to remove. I had this fixed at the dealer once long, long ago - very expensive because the plastic piece that needs replacing means they must remove the seats and the whole dash area including the steering wheel to properly replace what is broken. If you want to see how that is done go here: http://www.mechanixtrix.com/Article/Article.aspx?ArticleID=145 Much easier going through the glovebox.

My 1998 lincoln mark 8 rear is too high, wont come back down. why is the rear too high?


There should be a level switch in the rear of the car.The connector may have come unplugged,or filled with water.or maybe the switcch is bad.Or,it could be as simple as a disonnected or broken link arm at the switch.

Where is the air suspension compressor relay located on a 1998 lincoln Mark VIII?


the height sensors work as relays. it lets the computer know when an air spring needs air. if one air spring needs air, but all the others are level, the air spring needs replacing. it means it's leaking.

I have a 1993 lincoln mark viii trying to manually add air to rear air bags i have installed the hose kit but they wont accept air how to fix


Don't bother. Check with srtutmasters or other alternatives. If the car was made in 93, all bags will be leaking and eventually the compressor cant keep up and fails. even your local lincoln dealer will not be able to diagnose the problems with their "computers." You can get lifetime struts and spring, in your case just springs for the rear, lincoln shocks still work. Put new struts and springs in the front. The only difference is the car will not lower itself at 60 mph or higher. the ride is the same.
