It sounds as though the TPS Sensor has some
effect on the issue

Iam not suggesting you install ANY parts

I would test the Throttle Position Sensor
I'am not sure a volt meter will pick up a problem
and you won't have a scope, which is what I use.

You may have a Pedal Actuator with switches,
on the gas pedal mount,I don't know. The newer
Navigators & other Fords are drive by wire.

The sputtering tells me you need to be more
aware of other issues as well

Spark Plug - mileage
Vacuum Leaks
Evap System- Leaks
O2 Sensors
Dirty MAF Sensor

You may just need to work on it
more than just drive it, until you have these

Trying to be kind here,but
most people just drive till they quit

Car wont start

usually when a timing chain jumps the car will not run or sputter it just stops as the the ecm continually compares cam sensor and crank sensor readings for timing purposes.your problem sounds more like a fuel pump problem.have the fuel pressure checked with a gauge it should be in the area of 35lbs pressure.if its like 30 then its too low.also replace the fuel filter.

My 1998 lincoln navigator starts but shuts off emmediately, will only stay on if accelerating.

Most likely the throttle position sensor is bad. If it is idling weird and misfiring and barely running while accelerating, then the coil packs may be bad and you should check each cylinder for spark. Let me know if you have any more questions. Do check for vacuum leaks as well. Is your check engine light on? If so, you should have your engine codes read to pinpoint exact problem
