Question about Lincoln Vehicle Parts & Accessories

1 Answer

I have a 1994 Lincoln Town Car. I have problem that I have had for the last 7 years. No one seems to be able to figure it out. Every few days/weeks it will try to turn over but it will not start. If you leave it alone for 15 minutes to a half hour it might decide to start. Yesterday I could not start it for the last two days and finally had it towed to the garage. Don't you know that as soon as the mechanic got in the car it started right up. We have replaced the battery, had the modules checked and replaced and had the starter replaced and it still does the same thing. Any suggestions as to what could be causing this?

My guess is the Idle Air Control Valve (IAC). When starting the engine and at idle, the throttle plate is closed and the only air entering the engine is through the IAC. This is all controlled by the Powertrain Contol Module. It uses the IAC to allow a small amount of air to enter the engine for starting and to adjust idle speed. The IAC is mounted to the upper intake manifold with two small bolts, and has a small electrical connector on it. It is about two by four inches. It may be sticking closed, you can remove it (be careful, it may have a paper gasket) and clean it out with an Air Intake Cleaner. If this doesn't help, it may have failed and need replacing. I have also seen a bad Mass Air Flow Sensor cause an intermittent hard starting problem.

Let me know, if need further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
