    2001 Lincoln Navi, theft light illuminates (flickers) when accelerating and I feel what seems to be a slipping of the transmission usually at normal road speeds and at highway speeds as well. It feels like a bumping and passengers can feel it too.The tranny fluid is in good condition and quantity is right where it should be. If this is a coil pack, how do I find out which one is bad?

Car won't start. Sounds like the engine flooded. Not the starter. Also loses power going uphill and when accelerating.

Check Engine Light flashing when accelerating ,severe engine misfire . Something in the ignition system is breaking down under a load . If the starter engages an spins the engine when you turn the key to start an it doesn't start an run , it has no spark or fuel pressure . If you don't know this or how to diagnose .suggest you take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop . Pull two plug wires off the top of the same coil an crank the engine , if you do not see a spark jump from one coil tower to the other you have an ignition system problem . ignition module or crankshaft position sensor

Check engine light flashing on navigator

Check the fuses. Usually the data link connector is powered of an accessory fuse or the cigar fuse. If the fuse is blown than there will be no communication with the computer. Once the fuses are checked and any blown ones are replaced bring it back to have it scanned.

I agree that it sounds like a coil.

My 1998 lincoln navigator starts but shuts off emmediately, will only stay on if accelerating.

Most likely the throttle position sensor is bad. If it is idling weird and misfiring and barely running while accelerating, then the coil packs may be bad and you should check each cylinder for spark. Let me know if you have any more questions. Do check for vacuum leaks as well. Is your check engine light on? If so, you should have your engine codes read to pinpoint exact problem
