    Sorry, I thought it had R12. Are you sure? I can't find any verification in the owners manual.

Front air suspension not working


Or for under $400 you can buy a coil spring conversion kit from a company like
Arnott. Look for coil spring conversion kit exclusively designed for the Lincoln Mark VIII. The kit converts the entire vehicle to a reliable coil spring/strut suspension system. Also look for a kit the required no special tools and comes with detailed installation instructions.

This happens when the choke valve stays open too long, so it all depends on the car. Sometimes it can be 5 minutes, and other times it may be hours.

1996 Lincoln Towncar Air Suspension Light on and Car shutting off


Check the charging system and check it while the car and engine are hot. The alternator is starting to fail when hot. If the engine is not hot the failure will not show up. And yes I have seen this happen on many cars of all types. A lot of mechanics forget that the problem may not show up till car and alternator are hot.
