1997 lincoln mark 8 wont start

I have a 1997 lincoln mark 8 has 52k miles. I have had it in storage for the winter and now it does not start. I ran into the same problem last year and it was the fuel pump cut off switch. I reset it and it started no problem. I tried reseting the switch this year and still does not start. The battery is charged and engine cranks loud. It just sounds like it is getting no fuel. Could this be a bad fuel pump or some other electrical problem??? Please help

SOURCE: where is the thermostat located on a 1997 lincoln

thermostat is located in the radiator to block hose. if you look directly under the power steering reservoir you should see it.
The thermostat has 3 hoses running from it. 2 are approx. 1.5" in dia and 1 is approx .750" in dia. The .750" hose leads up to the coolant reservoir. and yes it is under the power steering reservoir

just press the button to reset it. Per your owner manual. Should only trip in an accident.

WHen you turn on the key, can you hear the fuel pump run for 5 seconds. The pump is in the fuel tank. listen there while someone turns the key on. report back.

I have a 1997 lincoln mark 8 replaced radiator water pump hoseses thermostat car still loses about a 1/4 gallon of coolant on a 120 mile trip compression is good no check engine lights no codes in system...

Friend, your only problem is a radiator cap that holds too much pressure and when hot enough will blow some coolant out. You'll never see it because it just dissipates from being hot. Swap out your radiator cap for a lower pressure one. I had to do this myself and the problem stopped.

My 1997 Lincoln Mark 8 will not shift into gear.

it may be a shifter linkage issue. There is an interlock to prevent the car from bouncing out of park into reverse and if the linkage is not correctly adjusted, then it locks up.
