Should be under the car, in the fuel line, near the gas tank.

SOURCE: 1999 lincoln fuel pump

My fuel pump on my 1998 Lincoln Continental has no power. I checked the fuse it is good. I checked the fuel shutoff switch it was fine. I have traced the wire from the fuel shutoff switch to the fuel module driver in the trunk. The wire has power. I have also traced the positve wire from the fuel pump to the fuel driver on a different terminal, this wire has no power from the pump. I also changed the fuel driver, the low fuel pressure switch, the alternator, and battery.does anyone have any suggestion's?

SOURCE: Location of the fuel filter in a 1999 Lincoln Towncar

You DO NOT need to remove the fuel tank to replace this filter.

My 1999 Signature Series Town Car did not require the special tool. It has two push out clips which hold the fuel lines in place. New clips came in the box with the filter. The clips are off-white in color and look like skinny versions of the plastic safety plugs moms use to keep toddlers from sticking objects into electrical outlets in your home.

The fuel filter is located just below the rear passenger side door - along the outside rail of the frame. It May or MAY NOT require the special tool.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN.

Be sure to depressurize the system by turning the off fuel pump - either by unplugging the cord in the left side of the trunk next to the hinge mount or removing the fuse (#14 20 amp in the fuse box under the hood).

It's a good idea to take a picture of the assembly before starting to refer to when you reassemble it.

Spread some shop towels or rags on the ground to catch any fuel which runs out of the filter when you remove it.

There is a hose clamp holding the filter in its housing - loosen with a screwdriver.

Pop out the two clips then pull the fuel lines out of the filter at each end.

Wiggle the filter out of its mounting bracket, then install the new filter and reinsert the fuel lines into it.

Be sure the clips are inserted correctly to avoid leaks. TIghten the hose clamp.

Replacement took about four minutes and required only a flat-blade screwdriver. Clips pop out and back in with only finger pressure.

SOURCE: Lincoln Towncar 1999 turns over great. Has a new

check the spark plugs to see if they are getting any spark-pull one of the plugs, reconnect the wire, and hold near something metal on the car while someone turns the engine over-if no spark-it's electrical-maybe just the plugs-maybe something more serious

SOURCE: 1999 Lincoln Towncar: erratic miss while

this is a common problem with these ford engines. this particular ignition system is a coil on plug system meaning there is a individual ignition coil on every spark plug.i am going to assume you don't have any cracked spark plugs, and they are gapped correctly and you would have a dtc(diagnositic trouble code). there are two common issues 1- you have faulty ignition coil boots which is allowing the current to arc through the boot. 2- faulty ignition coil. with no check engine light i would recommend allowing your lincoln, ford dealer to perform a diagnostic scan as they can test your individual ignition coils to pinpoint the fault. coil may be breaking down under load and or heat. your local independent repair shop diagnostic scanners are not capable of testing individual ignition coils and in turn they may recommend replacing multiple coils until problem is fixed. hope this helped, if more info is needed feel free to contact me.

Lincoln towncar 1999 not starting ive already replaced fuel filter, i have fuel pressure. maybe something wrong with antitheft ? i dont know its driving me crazy please help!!!!


This has become a pretty common problem with the mid to late nineties lincolns. I had the same problem. What I found out from research and trial and error is your battery may be weak. So try replacing your battery. also try resetting your Inertia shut off switch located in the trunk on the drivers side front panel.

1986 Lincoln Town car 5.0 intermittent stalling problem, usually while driving. fuel pump?..please advise! Thx! My 1986 lincoln town car has a intermittent stalling problem. ive taken it to a mechanic a few times and have had a full tune up done, the MAP sensor replaced and the idol reset to manufacture specifications. i also replaced the fuel filter, air filter, ignition control module, and fuel pump relay i found under the hood. i also have sprayed some wd40 in the idol control valve throttle plate area or whatever its called and wiped out any carbon around there (were the plastic air filter thing connects to the motor) my fuel pump has this high pitch buzz in the back of the car the whole time the engines running including while driving. Now it idols smooth, drives smooth initially. the fuel pressure reads 40 psi. i personally think something is heating up though, not sure if its the fuel pump or what. but my reason for thinking somethings heating up is the engine instantly shuts off after a certain amount of driving and parking has been done for the day, itll start back up if i let it sit 15mins or more, but will stall out again unless i let it sit overnight. Then i can drive and park it for the same time frame as the day before, before it will shut off again, usually while driving. it does this after the exact amount of time driving / parking has past pretty much exactly give or take 10 mins. heres how it goes from cold start, begining of day. ill start it up, idols fine, drives smooth no jerks or anything. ill drive it 25 mins park it engine off 15 mins drive it 10 mins park engine off 10 mins drive 10 mins (at this point i can feel random slight jerks occasionally while driving this point onward) park engine off 2 hours drive 10 mins (random jerks here too, usually this happens 90% 5 mins before the motor randomly shuts off, like a warning sign) park engine off 1 hour 30 mins drive 10 mins, ( at this point the engine will literally just shut off while im driving, usually going 35mph-45mh, ill feel/hear it not running anymore, the radio and power is still on, the brakes are harder to press, ill then coast into a parking lot.) if it doesnt stall then, ill park somewere and it wont turn over, itll just choke. Only way for me to be able to drive it again is to let it sit for about 4ish hours or over night. Then i can repeat the steps above, and without fail, the motor shuts off or wont start when i get to the end of those steps and do them exactly as before. which makes me think something is heating up. i just dont know what. Please advise, anyone :c
