Question about 1983 Lincoln Continental
That vehicle probably needs a larger battery but I doubt that is the problem. I assume you have the V-8 in that year model but even the V-6 should have 850 cold starting amps. My next step would be to look at the Throttle position indicator which controls the throttle at idle. If your vehicle doesn't have one, possible on that year model, you may need to clean the Carburetor or injectors to get more consistent gas flow. If all of that is good I would look at the vacuum advance and timing.
