Question about Lincoln Mark VIII
Posted by Anonymous on
It can never hurt to check the ground wire from the engine block to the frame or body. actually the a bad body ground can be dangerous and can actually cause a fire. as for the radio that's a different situation. this usually a bad distributor coil wire. you should change the whole set of wires with a premium wires. they'll most likely cure the problem.

It could be a ground wire. I'm curious did the previous owner install the radio? Sometimes people just install a radio to the nearest power,ground and remote wire without any precautions on what they tap in to. Part of what you are hearing is alternator and/or ignition noise. Between the two noises my concern is that the installer might have tapped into a blower motor wire for either power or ground. The noise itself can be fixed with a 20 amp noise filter such as this one http://www.amazon.com/Heavy-Automotive-Noise-Filter-270-055/dp/B000T306DY but I suspect a bigger issue. Either you or someone knowledgeable with car audio installation should pull that radio out and check all the connections and where they are tapped in to and install it properly. The engine noise itself can be fixed with the noise filter. This popping sound I feel is a short from mis installation. I have seen cars get dash fires from this. I never like to worry people but I am also honest. I would tend to this soon. Good luck.
