Lincoln Mark VIII - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

If you're sure the engine is running cool enough check the fuel pressure, low fuel pressure can vapor lock if the engine is hot enough the gas will boil. The boiling point of 87 octane is 181 degrees Fahrenheit although gas is constantly being returned to the tank in order to cool the fuel rail low pressure will not return enough leaving room in the rail for gas to boil. Ignition coils are also known to break down when hot. I hope this helps. Take care.

Check your power to your fuel pump. Put your ear to the filler for the gas and get someone to turn on the key, do not crank.. You should here the fuel pump cut on. If not suspect pump problem. You can also take the lin loose at the fuel filter and check to see if gas comes out after key is turned on and work your way to the engine if you get gas there just follow the lines.

Or for under $400 you can buy a coil spring conversion kit from a company like
Arnott. Look for coil spring conversion kit exclusively designed for the Lincoln Mark VIII. The kit converts the entire vehicle to a reliable coil spring/strut suspension system. Also look for a kit the required no special tools and comes with detailed installation instructions.

Would recommend to steam clean complete engine compartment, to include the bottom.

Next, top your fluids and place clean towels or rags. Start your car until leak is present. With flash light Che k where from. If fluid is redesh in color, it's transmission fluid. If it's dark brown or black, engine oil.

Check bottom of oil and transmission pans for possible cracks or damage.

The knocking can be from #5 cylinder which should be the front cylinder on the drivers side.
You should disconnect the negative battery cable for 10 minutes and see if the reader says the same thing after you restart the car.

If it does not cure the problem, it could be the coil pak for #5. The last thing would be a dirty or bad injector for #5. Hopefully the reader will show you fixed it.

The knock you refer to can easily be a balljoint or tierod end. If you are due for a frontend alignment those are parts which will be checked before an alignment can be done.

most caps are pressure release if you drill in it , might not release when needed. in hot weather. soke with super pup lightly tap on cap. use plairs or socket to loosen. one other way to do this is to put a tee in a heater holes, with clamps. be sure to put it on the highest point of line. if cross over tube can be changed , change it. if it has a sensor in it try removing the sensor to fill.
