Question about 1996 Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

I have a thumping noise in the rear passenger side of my 96 lincoln continental. When I hit the slightest road imperfection, I hear a thumping. I have had the airbags replaced, and they are fine. My mechanic cannot find it. It sounds like something is hitting the body. It is a hollow sound

Have you checked your spare tire? That and the jack for your car can work their way loose.

The rear swaybar can make noise but a visual inspection when the airbags were done should have shown up. The tailpipe can hit the frame or your rear bumper may be loose. The gastank can be loose.

Another area is inside the rear seat. There is an extra seatbelt for rear passengers and the end can swing freely under the seat. Would like to know what you found.

Water pump is in the middle of the motor on the passenger side of a front wheel drive (big pulley beside alternator). The thermostat should be at the driver side of motor ( follow the top hose from the radiator to the connection at motor) that will be the thermostat housing!

1995 Lincoln Continental, passenger seat won't tilt back forward


YOU HAVE A SWITCH OR A TILT ACTUATOR MOTOR PROBLEM. LINCOLNS HAVE 5 OR 6 ELECTRIC MOTORS MOUNTED ON THE UNDERSIDE OF EACH FRONT SEAT WHICH REQUIRES REMOVING THE SEAT TO INSPECT .THEIR ARE ALSO CABLES ATTATCHED TO THESE MOTORS SO LISTEN WHEN YOU HIT THE TILT SWITCH DO YOU HEAR A MOTOR NOISE? IF YOU DO THEN YOU MAY HAVE A BAD CABLE.

Everytime I start my car it hesitates and then starts up then it makes a noise on the passenger side under the hood. What could be my problem?


I am willing to bet that the vehicle has an air ride suspension and the noise that you are hearing is the air compressior pumpimg up the air bags. (Compressor is located on passenger side close to the wheel well.

I need to remove the rear seat of a 96 Lincoln Continental


Push the lower seat cushion toward the rear of the car and lift, there's 2 hooks approx. 12" or so either side of the center of the seat.
The seat back is held in with 2 bolt located on the lower outside corners.

You'll have to unbolt the seatbelts from the floor to completely remove the seat back.

96 Lincoln continental bank 1 sensor 1 which one is it


Bank 1 is always the side with the #1 spark plug, and in your case it is the right or passenger side, and it will be the first O2 sensor in the exhaust system either on the passenger side exhaust manifold itself, or it will be just after the passenger side exhaust manifold, and before the catalytic converter.

A BEARING MAKES A GROWELING NOISE.
BRAKES WOULD MAKE THE NOISE WHEN APPLIED.
THUMPING MORE THE FASTER YOU GO, LIKELY A TIRE THAT IS SEPRATING.(NO LONGER ROUND)
