Question about 1999 Lincoln Continental
I have a 1999 Lincoln Continental and it stumbles and or hesitates on light acceleration. I have replaced the Fuel Filter, Air filter and PCV valve, sparkplugs and boots and that didn’t help. At WOT it takes off like a rocket. Its only during light acceleration. Engine runs smooth at idle. No fault codes, gets good gas mileage. If anyone knows what’s wrong please let me know. Thanks,
Could be caused by a few different thing's ,dirty mass air flow sensor ( if your vehicle has one ) A worn TPS - throttle position sensor , dirty throttle plate .

Hey Bill, To answer your question about injectors, without a scanner capable of performing a injector balance test its very difficult to narrow down a clogging injector, you could however get a injection cleaning done at the shop of your choice, or even try a fuel additive to pour into fuel tank, however based upon the work you already have done, and the drive-ability your experiencing I would say you have a bad upstream O2 sensor. Bank 2 should be passenger side next to exhaust manifold. If you have access to a scanner you could check the O2 switching, however, I think that's your problem. Fuel pressure would cause both banks lean, vac leaks would really affect idle, and a ignition problem would usually set a misfire code. One thing you could try however which i have had success with is cleaning your mass air flow sensor, auto part store stock it, very easy to perform, i have had luck with it in the past, if dirty it can throw fuel trims out of spec. If you need any thing else let me know, and make sure you let engine cool for a period of time before touching any exhaust areas.
