I will tell you that these cars have alot of ignition coil problems, it recomended that all coils be replaced, some people replace only the bad one and sometimes get lucky for a few months but then back in the shop to diagnose the same problem and replace a few more, i know they cost a little but iy worth not having to redo a job two or three times, i can almost bet you have a few bad coils that arc out at times, you would need a scan tool connected to computer to locate the bad coils, unless there are stored codes in the computer from when it misfires. go to an auto parts store and have them scan it to see if there are any codes, they will give you a readout, if the computer picked up the misfiring then it will list the cylinders and then you will know which coils to change , good luck, and have a good day,

How to bleed cooling system on a 2000 Lincoln continental

The generic way is to raise the front of the car as high as possible, fill the coolant recovery/surge tank all the way to the top and then run the engine until it reaches operating temperature, do not overheat this engine! Now shut the engine down and let it cool off, you can run cold water over the radiator to speed the cool down, it will gravity self bleed, repeat as needed.

Where is ride control on 1994 lincoln continental located

It is located throughout the car. One main part that fails is the Master dump valve which releases all the air in the system to lower the car. If this solenoid sticks, the air will continue escaping from the sealed system or the pump may run and not stop if it runs at all.

Engine rpm surges intermitently

Miles? Have you replaced ignition coils recently? Pretty good chance that they could be going bad. I would start by swapping all 8 coils and plugs and probably changing the valve cover gasket as well as those are known to go bad in the 2000-2003 LS

1998 Licoln Continental 4.6 liter VTech

The fact that you have indicated the knock is in a very specific area of the engine indicates to me that the knock is there while idling and with you listening with the hood open. Spark knock, the kind that is caused by using lower-than-recommended octane gasoline, usually only happens when the engine is under load, not at idle.
I think you have a mechanical problem - valves, lash adjusters, maybe the cam itself. Do a compression check. If you have valves not working properly or not closing properly, this should help you find the area to check for damage.

I have a 2000 Lincoln C with a 4.6 engine. This

I think you need transmission fluid serviced with Mercon V from a Mercury dealer. I think the friction shoes in the torque converter are "Chattering" at lock up.

Try driving the car with O/D off and then w/o going into 4th gear. Leave it in 3. See if the vibration is gone.

4.6 liter, 97 Continental, 177,000 miles Engine miss

My 1998 Continental started missing. Problem was very slightly leaking valve cover gasket that allowed a little oil to drip on plug/plug wires. The oil would 'burn off' and not be evident on the driveway. It left carbon tracks that would short out and keep a plug from sparking.the cylindars.

1999 Lincoln Continental 4.6 32v engine...idles smooth in park & in gear. In park I get a engine miss when revved to 4000rpm. Also seem/feels like I have a miss at lower engine speed when being driven....

hello, i first must ask why that engine would EVER be reved to 4000 RPM? it is likely you are up against the rev-limiter and your ignition is made not to over rev. be very careful....4000 RPM on that engine could/will severly damage your tourque convertor........very expensive it is common for the EGR passages on that model to plug up with carbon, remove valve, clean ports, and retest for low speed miss/hesitation, good luck....marty
