Question about 1997 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

Car has been jumping while im going down the road like it is a bumpy road but its not for about 3 weeks. Belt broke on the car about a week ago replaced it. Driving on a gravel road yesterday the car kept shutting off over and over all the way back home. Put water in the car because it seemed to be hot even though the gauge in the car didnt say it was it started back after an hour and drove fine around the block for about 5 minutes then started shutting off on every bump. Changed all the spark plugs last night and the back one on both sides had liquid in it. one on passenger side has water and anitfreeze in it and the one on the driver side has some kind of brown pasty material in it. Won't start.

Coolant on the spark plugs is a classic indication of a failed cylinder head gasket. No point in doing any further analysis 'till you get that squared away. When you replace the head gaskets, it's always advisable to have the heads checked for cracks and warpage.

It is possible that your tensioner pulley is seized and will have to be replaced as well. This happened to my 2001 F-150, the tensioner pulley seized and shredded the serpentine belt.

Does it happen when you accelerate and decelerate? If so, it might be a motor mount or transmission mount. If it only happens on bumpy roads, check to see of the battery is held down tight, otherwise I'm at a loss.
