Question about 2000 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Town Car. First, I while doing a tune-up, I pulled out two spark plugs that where full of oil. Second, in overdrive, my engine revs. but won't go past 30mph. With OD off it revs. but will pick up speed. I seems like my transmission, but at the same time my trans. seems strong. Could it be a sensor?

Valve cover gaskets on the spark plugs. Most likely the solenoid pack in trans on some of the shift/rpm issues. Remove trans pan and remove about 7 bolts, for the solenoid control assy.$332.00 wholesale at trans supplier and not affordable at dealer for same part,same mfg of part. Make sure you use Mercon V and add a bottle of red Lubgard.

Just got a tune up on my 2000 lincoln townca. Got the spark plugs and airfilter changed. When the mechanic took my old spark plugs out 2 of them look like they had oil on them. After he put the new spark...


The engine has an oil leak, it's most likely either a valve cover [ most likely ] or the intake gasket. It sounds like the oil going on the exhaust manifold and burning off causing the smoke. This should be addressed ASAP as this is a fire danger!

Oil around spark plug and car mis fires


The oil around the plug may be a sign that the valve-cover needs a new gasket. Oil on the plugs can cause a misfire but it is important that you check everything over. The misfire could be due to defective wires, boots, coils, spark-plug/s, injector/s, and so much more. Take a look at the cars maintenance history, Maybe it is over due for a complete tune-up or oil change. The car is 11years old, how many miles are on it? How was it running before this?

Hyundai Accent intermittent jerking


Revs.
As for the issue of the idle revs, that's perfectly normal. When it's cold outside, every car is supposed to have a higher rev in order to warm up the engine quickly. In more advanced cars, the computer wont even allow the engine to shift into overdrive when it's cold outside in order to avoid extreme engine stress and damage. When it's warm outside, the engine doesn't need to idle high because the engine is already at a good operating temperature. Not much will be needed to get it to the right temperature.
Intermittent Jerking

There is a long list of things that could cause intermittent jerking. I'm going to name all of them for you, but your best best would be to go to a mechanic and have them do an inspection.
Clogged PCV Valve (Possibly if you don't get your oil changes on time, sign of a tune up)
Bad DIstributor Cap (not likely at 140,000 miles)
Clogged fuel filter (Very likely, usually done with tune up)
Bad Fuel Pump (Not so likely)
Defective ECM (also not likely)
Vacuum hoses/leak (not likely but possible)
MAS (Mass Airflow Sensor--not likely but possible)
Fuel INjectors (if so, sign of a needed tune up)
Faulty Spark Plug Wires (not likely if tune up is recent)
Faulty O2 Sensors (possibly)

Clogged Catalytic Converter (Possible)
~Hope this helps

2000 lincoln town car executive series sparkplugs


Between the rocker cover and the fuel rail are the coils, one per cylinder hed in place by a smill 8mm bolt. Remove the coil and find the spark plug wire, the arrangement is called a coil-on-plug or COP. Spark plug is in the tube from whince the spark plug wire came. 5/8" deep socket and long extension will reach it. Another hint find some way to clean out the tube before removing the spark plug least all kinds of junk winds up in the cylinder.......SMith

hi, oil leaking down into the spark plugs causing problems, in the 4.6 the plugs go way down from the top and can get full of oil, pull one boot plug up and out inspect one at a time to see how bad the oil leak is. it needs gaskets but should be okay to go back and forth once, needs valve cover gaskets now..jm

I did a tune up on my 2000 town car 3 weeks ago.


maybe the plug wires...did you mess with the timing?  Is the ox sensor wires connected?  Is a check engine light on?  Are you now running the a/c?

I was told a a 2000 lincoln town car (8 cyl) has no spark plugs.


replace the spark plugs, replace the air filter if dirty or has more than 30,000 miles, replace the fuel filter if more than 30,000 miles. clean the PCV system and valve.

2000 vw passat 1.8t wont start


First make sure you do a basic tune-up on the car i.e. replacing spark plug wires, spark plugs, distributor cap, rotor button, etc. Secondly, the plugs are probably just wet from fuel from not starting. The low oil pressure light coming on is normal when trying to start the car. Make sure to check for codes too and don't press the accelerator when starting the car, otherwise it will flood the engine.
