Question about 1989 Lincoln Mark VII
Make sure you have the correct filter and that there is oil in the engine.
I usually pre-fill the filter to avoid similar problems.
It can also be that if someone else changed the oil, they may have forgotten to put oil in after they were finished, started the engine then caught the mistake. If that happens it is difficult or impossible to prove but it can cause irreversible damage to the crank bearings, especially if they were somewhat worn to begin with. Adding marvel oil can sometimes free up a sticking lifter but other than that it is a "case by case" situation. If a shop did the work, notify them right away and don't drive the car 'till they have looked at it.
hope it turns out to be something small...
