Question about 1996 Lincoln Continental

Open Question

I am currently changing out all the O2 sensors on my 1996 lincoln continental. All of the sensors seem to be in front of the converter. Does this mean that I dont have any downstream sensors?

SOURCE: air ride suspention front 1996 lincoln continental

The air pump is located in front of the radiator reservoir on the passenger's side - with the power steering reservoir between the two.

The air ride is turned on in the truck. The panel in located on the opposite side from the gas tank input (inside the trunk) behind a door. It should be marked on the door.

Make sure the air ride is enabled. turn the ignition key on, You don't need to start the vehicle. After about 5 seconds the air compressor should engage. You don't always hear it when it's running well. Since the engine is off, you should be able to hear any leaks in the air system.

Possible causes:
Hole/crack is air spring
Hole or broken air line or coupling
Failed air compressor

The rear suspension should use the same air system. If the pump is 'out' then the rear will also fail to adjust, But since it is on a separate air-line and valve system, it will continue to operate when the front has air leaks. And vise versa.

One pump
Two suspension systems - Front/Rear
Four air springs - One for each wheel

Another possible problem:
Your front wheels have a censor to indicate the height of the vehicle from the ground (basically). If this come unclipped, your system will think It's too high and will not add air to bring it to normal height. This usually happens on ONE side causing the vehicle to 'lean' or seem to. One side will have the wheel up in the wheel well, and the other will be a bit more gap between the wheel and the wheel well, but may seem to be 'low' too. On the side which is lowest, turn the wheel that direction and look on the front of the suspension arm for the sensor. it should be attached top and bottom.

If the clips have failed, there are no replacements available from the dealer, and replacement of the sensor is required.

SOURCE: REPLACE BANK 2 o2 SENSORS 1996 CONTINENTAL

bank 1 and bank 2 refer to the positioning of the sensor on the car, bank 2 just means the second one, so if you start out at your exhaust manifold and inspect the piping going back, the second O2 senor you find will be the one you need to change, it will likely be around or near the catalitic convertor.

Where is the 02 sensor on a2002 lincoln continnetal


There are four sensors on the Continental cat converter. Because it is front wheel drive, the engine is rotated 90 degrees compared to a rear wheel drive. Next up is location. Front O2 sensor should be near the radiator.It will have a green connector where it is plugged into wire harness. It is called left sensor on the frt wheel drive cars. The right hand O2 sensor is downstream on the inlet pipe right above number 2 cat, the one that looks like a catchers mit, ahead of the flex pipe.Sensor 1 reads air/fuel mixture and is commonly called O2 sensor 1. remember green connector. Sensor 2 monitors the function of your catalytic converter and have a blue connector plug. Front wheel drive cars are a bit tougher because everything is 90 degrees off of diagnosis, front,rear, number 1,number 2. BTW, the sensors with blue connectors are called CMS sensors for catalytic monitor system and rarely go bad. Auto Zone scans for free and I would have it scanned before popping 40 bucks for new.

97 LicolnLincoln Continental P0131Continental P0131 and P1131 02 sensor codes. Car has a 4.6L V8 with 79K. Conti idles and runs great even with this error, but since I got these codes the gas mileage...


If Im not mistaken that code is due to a lean mixture which in turn can cause an engine to run hotter.Have you had the line pressure checked for the injectors. If you have pulled all the spark plugs are there some with colors different to others? Try switching sensors from one side of engine to other and see if code changes.Do front ones first then if no change swap rear ones. If change : bad Sensor. If not probably bad Cat. converter.

DOES 1996 LINCOLN HAVE AIR BAGS IN FRONT? IS IT HARD TO CONVERT THE REAR TO SPRINGS?


No. The Lincoln Continental does not have air bags in the front. It is not exactly hard to convert the rear airbags to springs. It is more time consuming than anything. I have a 1996 Town Car, I had a mechanic replace the air shocks with springs.

96 Lincoln continental bank 1 sensor 1 which one is it


Bank 1 is always the side with the #1 spark plug, and in your case it is the right or passenger side, and it will be the first O2 sensor in the exhaust system either on the passenger side exhaust manifold itself, or it will be just after the passenger side exhaust manifold, and before the catalytic converter.
