Question about 1994 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

My 1994 lincoln town car makes a chattering metallic noise which is more noticeable when Im in Drive and pressing on the gas, but sometimes it makes the noise when I am not pressing on the gas. I notice i can only hear the noise in first second and third gear, after that it starts to go away. when Im on the highway, i dont notice it at all. My hunch is its the transmission or timing chain. The shop i took it to tried to tell me it was a bad power steering pump, but i highly doubt that. Can you help me at all?

Well without being there to look at the vehicle its pretty much a best guess, From what your describing sound like a problem in the drive train. And more likely with the transmission involved in the sound as well as speed and the metallic shingling I'm betting on a broken engine mount. So I'm going to tell you how to test that theory.

1.) open the hood
2.) have someone start the vehicle (engine will raise a bit)
3.) press the brake , put car in neutral (engine should rock)
4.) put in park (should lift and kick back)
5.) put in reverse (should kick back)

once u have 1 or more of the above,, you have a broken engine mount, replace it..

The car runs at idle speed but when you give it gas it take in alot of air and cuts off. 1994 Lincoln towncar signature series


My first guess would be the MAF sensor. It is located on the breather tube I believe right after the air intake filter. Try unplugging the MAF sensor plug and see if you notice a difference. If you do-you will obviously need to replace the sensor. Dont think you can just leave it unplugged and not buy a new sensor either because your gas mileage will take a serious plummet...im talking like 7-10 mpg at best. Good luck!
