Please don't pump the gas pedal. It is doing absolutely nothing. The TPS is a potentiometer and sends info to the ECM.
The fuel tank is underneath the car, between the rear seat and the trunk.
Change the fuel-filter first, then if there is no change then you need to run a test to see what the fuel-line pressure is. If it is below 33psi then you may have a leak, a defective fuel-pump, or fuel regulator.

    There's 2 plastic holes (j shape and a backwards s shape) connected to your intake, make sure there snap on......mine did the same thing (starts for 3 sec. The cut off) just snap them on and it stays running

My fuse keeps blowing on the fuelpump of a Lincoln ls 2001 do I need a new fuel pump

Probably. The fuel pump is really easy to do on an LS. Just remove the rear seat and make sure to keep spark or heat sources away. DO THE FUEL FILTER too. don-ohio

2001 lincoln ls fuel pump working but not starting

Your description points to a bad crankshaft sensor. You should also have a check engine light on. This probably happened when cold snow hit a very warm sensor, and possibly cracked it. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

2002 lincoln ls died while driving it now it will not start .

I'm having a similar problem with my ford. By the sounds of it you have a fuel delivery problem, either clogged fuel filter or bad fuel pump (there are other issues that can cause this problem). Steps will have to be taken to try and narrow the problem down. i.e. check for spark, fuel pressure. Have someone turn the key over while you listen near the tank, if you hear a whining or similar noise this usually means your fuel pump is working.
