Autozone is a parts store ,to my knowledge. They may have repair facilities,Iam unaware of. Most people go there to have codes pulled. Then you know ,no more than when you got there,because they don't give you a discription of the code.
Unless you have decades of auto technology and experience,you can not even begin to work on a Lincoln LS. It, as are all vehicles since 1980, mostly electronically controlled.
I have a 2004 LS and all the factory manuals. I will guide you ,if you give me codes,drivability symptoms etc. To be as honest as I can be,personally I wouldn't even recommend you open the hood,other than to check fluids. It is one of Ford most complicated vehicles.

Car ran fine until I pulled into driveway. After I turned off ignition it wouldnt start again.

Have the battery tested and clean the battery cables. Just because it reads 12 volts doesn't mean it can supply power under a load.. Autozone and others test batteries for free

Fans are not coming on for the radiator so when your at a stop no air is flowing through the radiator. Check to make sure the fans are kicking on before the car starts to overheat.

sounds like your alternator has packed up. Take it off and take it to the parts store for testing. If you need instructions to get it off, please let me know.

My 98 Honda Accord Vtec 4cyl. eng is starting fine, but after start the idle dips a few times and regains for approx. 3min. If I drive without warming up the car will hesitate and the gas pedal will delay...

Seems like the coolant temperature sensor is giving the computer erroneous readings, and it is not adjusting the fuel mixture properly for cold engine operations. You should have the check engine light on, indicating this malfunction. The idle fluctuations are normal. The engine is trying to die, from the improper cold mixture, and the computer (ECM), recognizing low idle speed, is sending it back up. Another possibilty is that the butterfly on the throttle body is not closing completely, to allow richer mixture needed for cold starts.

My 1996 lincoln continental will not start after I drive and park, however if I let the car cool off it starts again. What's the problem?

Sounds like your starter is bad. A bad starter will function when it's cold but once you drive around, the starter heats up and requires more power to start (a jump start). This is almost always the case. Most shops will do a free check on your battery and charging system and this should be done prior to making a repair but all things seem to point to your starter. Hope this helps and good luck!
