Question about 1999 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

I just bought a 1999 lincoln town car. when we were coming from Providence R I, I stopped to fill it up. I continued to press the fuel nozzle after it fill up to make it come out on a n even number to help figure out gas mileage. When we got back home we took a short trip & the gas tank showed half full. We ran out of gas. When I tried to fill it up it took only 9 gallons & would not take any more gas. I know the tank hold 17.9 gallons. Is there a problem with the air vent possibly being clogged up, maybe a mud dobber. I know some vehicles have a automatic stop on the gas flow in case the vehicle overturns. I do not believe the fuel sensor would cut off my gas sending unit even if it was faulty.

You need to have a scan tool put on the EVAP System,
as well as have it smoke tested

You most likely have a bad evap vent solenoid

I added air shocks to my 1995 lincoln town car because the air suspension bags died. what pressure should they take and do they lose air so you have to add air?

The Stock Air Bags self Leveled, your new System should have come with PAperwork or is there a Air Nozzle that you have to fill? The Bags should come with a Pressure Window for a Firmer Ride or Softer Ride.

1983 lincoln town car fuel pump comes on for 2 seconds thats it then has no power.

It needs several signals to continue running. You do have a fuel pump Relay which can kick out.

Check the fuel pressure test port to see if pressure is maintained. The crankshaft position sensor sends info to regulate fuel pressure.

Can't put fuel in tank

The fuel tank fill tube or fill tube vent pipe for the fuel tank is either clogged with something or the anti-siphon feature (what stops people from stealing your gas) is fouled up. The tank and fill tube have to be inspected.

Poor fill up time

you need to check the hose that runs parallel to the gas line filler tube to make sure it's not blocked (for the life of me i can't think of the name of that tube at the moment).
Also i presume you have tried different gas pumps to rule out a defect in the pumps nozzle.
