If the old intake manifold was used and the airhorn was not removed, there is a chamber below the airhorn that needs cleaning. It takes 8 bolts to remove the airhorn and a $10 gasket.
The chamber feeds the EGR system. Have Autozone or Oreillys scan the car. Sometimes when carbon fouls the system the O2 sensors are dirty and it upsets the computer.

Spitting and sputtering like not getting fuel

It may have fouled your plugs, but you can tke them out and clean them. Use a small blade and scrape the carbon off.
You could also take the egr valve off and try to clean it. Use a wire brush. also clean as best you can the passages under the valve, they can get plugged with carbon. Use a new gasket when you bolt the egr valve back down. Keep trying to get the fuel filter off, but the egr cleaning should help.

Changed egr.check engine light stays on.hesitates between 30 and 40 mph. after it gets goin will start jerking and vibrating real bad.check engine light starts blinking

Check your Back pressure valve. The hose on the top of the EGR runs to the backpressure valve loated on the firewall of your car. Also check the mass air flow sensor. There are plenty of times when the EGR code pops up that something else is wrong with that system

What does it mean when your car jerks from time to time? Is that tranmission problems or maybe a build up in the engine?

No such thing--- as a build up in the engine

EGR Valve-- is most likely cause of the ****

Trans -- may have solenoid issues,depending on
unit in your vehile

You may also have --coil misfires,, that don't set codes

Intermittent poor acceleration, loss of power. Has new plugs, ignition module, crank sensor, fuel filter. Plug wires 1 year old. Have tried mass air flow sensor, coil packs. Fuel pressure was monitored and...

Regardless of age, battery discharging first needs to be addressed and fixed - bad battery or something in car (like a light) may be staying on when car is shut off.
Fuel pressure is too low - should be around 50psi and may be caused by an intermittent fuel pump or regulator problem.
The cause of the other problems is usually with the IAC or MAF sensors or the EGR valve - fouling at the EGR, IAC and/or throttle body is to be expected for a car this old.

How to remove egr valve on 1997 lincoln towncar

The EGR valve can be replaced by using a pipe wrench, or a standard wrench to remove the fitting over the pipe going into the EGR valve... it's not too hard to replace, I've done it on mine myself... I have a 97 town car as well... the only problem is that my EGR valve was fine, but the computer told me it was bad... But I found out that the EGR sensor was bad, not the valve... now to replace the EGR sensor you need to remove the engine... FORD in their infinite wisdom decided to put the EGR sensor on the rear of the engine, half way down next to the firewall...

My mechanic said that as long as the car is running fine, I souldnt worry about the EGR sensor, its job is to tell me when the EGR valve is bad...

Hope this helps
