You should not have to remove the engine for timing chain. How do you know you need a chain? They should be good for 200,000 miles and then some. I assume its a 4.6 OHC.

Does the engine have to come out to remove timing chain cover on 97 lincoln continental 4.6 ?


nope,, after removal of a few items, you should have room to do that repair ,, that motor has 2 timing chains , so before removal,, be sure and mark all timing marks , ( as the motor sits before removal) once apart, do not crank the motor,,

Car wouldnt start. thought it was battery but took it to merchants and they said timing chain broke timing gear box. the car acts like it wants to start up, is something fishy here? PLEASE HELP!


If the chain just slipped a tooth or two, the engine could still start or almost start, but it will have no power. I'm not saying they are right, but they are not obviously wrong. Only way to know for sure is to remove the timing cover and check the timing marks on the cam sprocket.

1979 Lincoln Continental Town car has a rough idle (400 cid). I have checked the timing and replaced the spark plugs and wires along with cap and rotor? What else could cause a smooth idle then a heavy...


I"d lean toward the dirstributor itself. You were right to check the timing but a balky distributor would cause occaisional mis-fires. Apart from that, the timing chain itself would be the next likely culprit.
