All you need to do is tell the person at the parts store the year/make/model of your car and he'll tell you what batteries he has in stock. You'll need to bring the old one with you in order to avoid the core charge. If you don't bring it with you they will charge you and then refund when you bring the old one in. The batteies he has in stock will vary on price depending on the amount of cold cranking amps, total amp output, length of warranty etc.

When you go to the auto parts store, tell them the year, make, model, and the size of the engine, they can look it up in their computor and give you the right one.

If i'm not mistaken that battery group size should be a group 65 battery..you would want a battery with at least 700 cca's(cold cranking amps) you can expect to pay a good $90 for a fair priced battery for this vehicle....Your local autoparts store will have the exact application for your vehicle......happy battery hunting!! hope I helped!!!

89 lincoln,while the car is running it will just quit, got a new battery and the alternaor seems to be alright. It will quit running and will not start on its own, get a jump start and will run for...


It sounds like the alternator is the problem and that the starter is on it's way out. Even if the alternator tests okay with an amp meter, it can still be an issues, especially if it is more than 2 years old. If you continue to run the car without changing the alternator and doing a light tune up, you'll probably need a new battery too, even though you just got a new one. If you have to jump it more than three times in a week, the battery gets over loaded, even new ones.

My sons Lincoln Town car has a charging problem, I think! How do I rule the alternator? And does the town car need the battery to run? I always thought the battery was for starting the car?


Is the battery light on? If so, the alternator is probably bad. The battery starts the car. The car runs off the alternator, and keeps the battery charged.
