Can't have plugs in there older than 3 years

You need front oxygen sensors replaced at 100,000 miles

You most likely have several failed COP Ignition Coils, that
give you throttle body codes (the problem IS the coils NOT
the tps sensor or TACM on throttle body-just replace the
coils yourself (Rock Auto.Com for parts)

Clean the MAF Sensor (CRC MAF Cleaner)

Where is the map sensor located

I don't list a map sensor for that model.
I do list a MASS sensor which measures air flow between the air filter and the throttle body.

Need to know where the oxygen sensors are located on a 1999 lincoln towncar

Oxygen sensors are usually located on the manifold pipe just as it exits the engine block. If the engine is a V6 or V8 it will most likely have one sensor per side where the exhaust leaves the sides of the engine ( front and back )

1996 lincoln towncar stalling in traffic

Most common cause is a bad TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). The TPS controls your throttle speed under all conditions. Another possibility could be either the MAF (Mass Air Flo) sensor, or a dirty EGR valve but TPS usually cures your problem.

How to replace a throttle positin sensor on a 2004 lincoln ls

Because the EGR valve is in the way of one screw, your best bet is to remove the throttle body,them the sensor.You have two torx screws holding it on. T25 or something. This would be on a V8.

1996 Ford Thunderbird V8 4.6L Idles High. When starting up engines does not idle down after warming up. When driving car just wants to speed up.

check your throttle body make sure all the springs are connected. your throttle body may be nasty inside and may need cleaning, it may be getting stuck. Throttle cable could be sticking or disconnected (there are two one pulls and one returns to idle IIRC)

also you should really search and become a member there if you are not already.

98 Lincoln TC,Cold starts fine ,runs good until warm, then shuts off. No codes,Cranks ok, have spark, PATS ok. No fuel pressure, cant hear fuel pump prime,New Fuel relay. jumped fuel pump - works. I do not hear fuel pump prime up, do not have fuel gauge, but pressing on valve in fuel rail- no pressurized fuel. Fuel regulator seems ok, not leaking / vacuum line dry as a bone. If I let it set for 15 min , it will start up again, but for a few minutes then dies out. If I let it set overnight it starts up perfectly and runs until operating temp is reached then stalls/stumbles, and shuts down. Vacuum is good while cranking, even with no start, Checked Inertia switch in trunk, it is not tripped. I have seen Ford TSB summaries' that mention issues like this , but I am not able to see to description. A point to add, the MAF sensor was cleaned, then I decided to replace it and did not make a difference. I do not have any stored codes, and the PATS is working fine, typical 2 second flash from and once key is inserted a 3 second steady light, then disappears. I have seen the TSB mentioning C103 Connector, it looks fine, I swapped out fuel pump relay with ac relay, still no difference.mention of wires around battery, do not know where to start. in dash service engine light and odometer is normal, seen other posts the say they only have lines, but mine is ok. the start of all of this , I washed engine with regular garden hose, ( not using pressure washer).also in the mean time, rear window defroster stopped working as well, can not say for same reason, but a mention.My problem started after washing engine. this is one of four Panther platform vehicles I owned with exact 4.6l w code engine, which I rinced down before. The only sensor I can think of is Oil pressure , or a corroded wire
