Fuel filter, fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, Idle air control valve, mass air flow sensor, faulty plugs, faulty injectors. If there is any codes set that is where I would start. The check engine light code is going to tell you somewhat what is going on. There are too many different things that there can be. My guess is mass air flow sensor or something with the fuel.

With key off unplug the mass air flow sensor and try to start the vehicle. If it starts and runs fine, try cleaning it with mass air sensor cleaner, and plugging it back in. If cleaning doesn't solve the problem it may need replaced.

My 95 lincoln town car wont start but turns over if i tap on the mass airflow sensor then go back in the car it trys to start but doesnt could the mass air flow sensor cause this ? and be my problem?


you need to check to see if it has spark at the spark plugs
check to see if you have fuel pressure at the fuel pressure test port at the fuel rail.
if you don't have either one then it may be the ignition module
but first check all your fuses

When driving my lincoln 1998 after about 10 miles or so, you can feel it hesitating about to stall.. there was a service engine light pointing to O2 sensor 1 bank II. could this be the cause? since the...


Hello. I can assist you. Generally when a scan is done, the technician will clear out all of the codes and hope that the problem self corrects. I am glad you passed the state emissions test. Now let's get to the bottom of the hesitation. Generally all lincoln and ford cars that hesitate like yours have a problem with the "mass airflow sensor". Most likely you will need to replace it.
The Air Flow Sensor or Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) is one of the components of an electronic fuel injection system and is found in many of modern vehicles. The Mass Air Flow sensor is usually installed inside the intake air duct between the air filter and the engine. The Mass Air Flow sensor is used to measure the amount of air entering the engine. This measurement is used by the engine computer or ECM to calculate proper amount of fuel injected into the cylinders in order to provide optimum combustion and low emissions.
Problems with Mass Air Flow sensors are common. Bad or contaminated Mass Air Flow sensor can possibly cause a wide range of various vehicle driveability problems such as stalling, especially when the engine is cold, misfiring, poor acceleration, etc.
In addition, a problem with the Mass Air Flow sensor often causes the "check engine" or "service engine soon" light in the vehicle instrument panel to illuminate.
The "check engine" or "service engine soon" light comes on when the engine computer detects some fault in one of the components of the emission control system.

1994 lincoln town car will not stay running


Idle air control valve.. clean it (mechanic will for just a few dollars) the other culprit would be the mass air flow sensor.. it is located in the air intake tube coming from the filter box.. its round and has one plug in.. if you take it out you will notice the inside looks alot like a honeycomb. its not cheap but I am 99% sure that is what you need....
