Question about 1991 Lincoln Continental

2 Answers

When the weather is 100 degrees or warmer the 1994 Lincoln Continental starts losing power while driving (no matter the speed, but moreso at lower speeds 35 m.p.h. or less)and then the motor dies. You then have to wait at least one half an hour for engine to cool down so the motor will start again. Could this be a vapor lock problem and is this a common problem with this year and model?

Had I Think, Same Problem, 2-Times Dealers Could Not Fix, 2-Bills, Car Kept dieing in Hot Summer
here in Georgia, No Codes Present, finally got fed up w/them, figured there computer could not tell
them how to fix it, I went back to auto-basic's, gas, spark, compression.
Replace The Ignition Coil, breaking down due to summer Hot heat, +engine compartment Hotter heat in Summer, have 91 Linc Continental Signature.
My car has not died since.

What does it mean when my 96 Lincoln Continental won't shift from 2nd to 3rd gear and is it safe to drive it like that?


It is safe to drive but the car is running in too low a gear at high speed and this will result in greater engine wear and lower gas mileage.

You have a transmission problem.

How do I remove a vss on a 1994 Lincoln continental with a ax4s transmission


It attaches like a speedo cable used too. It just has one bolt holding it clamped into the trans tail shaft, LH side, with a plug on it instead of a cable. If you jack the rear up high, you may not lose any trans fluid. either way, check trans fluid level when you're done and make sure the plastic gear is the same color (number of teeth).

Emission systems light on, losing power or misses


You may want to check your oxygen sensor and vacuum hoses. An OBD can help you identify the exact cause. Most auto store and garage should have one.
