What kind of leak? Is it a clear liquid like water condinsation coming from the air conditioner? Or is it grean or reddish like antifreeze? Is your water temp. lite coming on or gauge running hot? Is it a dark thick liquid like oil or transmission fluid? Have you checked your oil level? Tell us more about the leak, what does the fluid look like? Is it a lot like a puddle or little drips? Need as much information as possible Thanks
Most common cause of stalling for Lincolns in that era is the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). It regulates fuel mixture, idle speed etc. A bad TPS will usually act up in one of two ways:
When cold, car continually stalls
When warm, car stalls when slowing down (especially if AC is on)
As far as valve cover oil leak, it's a problem that should be addressed to keep oil from fouling your spark plugs but highly unlikely to be the cause of your stalling problem. Hope this answers your question. All the best.
It could be transmission fluid. This can leak if not sealed off and they smell similar. If you can get some of that leak on the ground and a good amount, put water onto it. If it turns pink it's transmission fluid. If it stays black the oil line may run under there somewhere. Don't really know about them German cars.
If starter was mounted properly it may be defective or may need to be shimmed. It can also mean that you have a bad flywheel but if this wasn't happening with old starter then you can rule that out. If old starter had shimms(small flat plates between starter and mounting surface,starter bolts go through them). If this is an after market starter then it can most definitely be defective. The fly wheel and the starter gear is meshing properly that's where the screech comes from gear grinding not engaging properly. Good luck Thanks for using FIX YA
from the ignition switch or the starter, power is taken fromeither of these points to fire the fuel pump on start. This is what charges the fuel system so that you can start. then your fuel pump goes into run mode.
If someone can make a power check on the wiring going to the fuel pump with the engine is being cranked, you can possibly solve your problem.
take off the passenger side front tire and youll have to use a couple of socket extensions to get it, make sure to jack and block car correctly. when you remove the tire you should be able to see the top bolt with a droplight through the wheelwell
access is through the wheelwell I believe.
