Question about Lincoln Town Car
Hello, This can be a hard fix to limit to only 1 cylinder. I want to say there are strong cleaners for the injectors that work this way. A can of solvent is attached to the fuel rail and the fuel pump is disabled.
The engine runs off of this solvent until the solvent runs out. This is suppose to clean out the injectors which would also produce a solvent in the cylinder head. Ford makes a Combustion Chamber cleaner which may be the same thing. Check with a Dealer about this product.
You would also get a the same problem from the exhaust valve, only getting a liquid solvent to the back side of that valve would be difficult. In the old times, people used water in the hot cylinder to steam the cylinder and moisten the carbon deposits.
I would check with the Dealer, also Bardahl was used in the air intake to degum the heads by pouring it into a running engine air intake.. This would be a 1960's cure.
I would like to know what was successful in fixing this problem.
