Question about 1989 Lincoln Town Car

2 Answers

I have a 1989 Lincoln Town Car, it seems to be leaking gasoline from the middle of the engine. It only occurs when the car is running and then shortly after it is turned off. I had a similar issue with my 1991 Town Car but the 89 is different underneath

    You need to get an eye on the leak. Only then can you determine the appropriate repair. You can pressurize the system by turning the key on. Try not to be underneath with it running and don't use a droplight (flashlight only...it's safer)

More then likely you have a leak in the master cylinder witch is mounted on the brake booster. You can use a spray bottle filled with soap and water, and spray onto where you hear the hissing noise. It will bubble up where the leak is.

93 lincoln town car leaking antifreeze down back of engine


there is a small heater hose on the pass side rear from the firewall(heater core) to the intake manifold. the plastic manifolds have a tendency to split where the hose fitting goes into the intake. If that is where it is leaking the manifold needs replacement.

Cooling system leak


Sorry they are not. The plastic intake has to be replaced. It is common on these engines.
