1990 Lincoln Town Car Q&A
1990 Lincoln Town Car Question: A no start situation!
my Lincoln Towncar is cranking,but not starting up. I replaced the fuel pump and fuel sending unit and the digtal dash is saying that the car has gas in it when it doesn't. I put four gallons of gas in it on my way to Ft. Lauderdale which is 30 miles from were I was. I stoped at a walmart around the corner from were I live to pick up something. When I got back to the car I had a hard time starting the car. It act like it wanted to stall so I gave it some gas and it stayed crank and I mad it home. The next morning I went start the car and it wont run it will just crank. So I went to the gas station and got 2 gals. of gas and put it in and the it still will not run.could it be the fuel pump again? I checked the fuel pump relay and fuse and all is good. what could cause this promblem? - earlga2

After thousand of dollars in diagnostic work from different garages, and none of them able to locate the problem. Here's what I found out. I replaced crank shaft sensor. I replaced the in line gas filter. I checked all the wiring and had to fix a couple with cracks. I cleaned the fuel pressure sensor and all the electrical connectors. No disgnostic code ever the entire time. No one would ever tell me it was fixed. Then every 3-6 months, it would crank fine but no start. I discovered the problem for my car. Near the fuel pressure sensor, there is a port to check the fuel pressure. I couldn't get the car going, the fuel pump kept working and wouldn't stop. The car still wouldn't start. I pressed on the fuel pressure nipple, air hissed out followed by gasoline. I took my finger off the nipple quickly. Got back in to the car and it started right up. It was vapor lock. I can't tell you how relieved I am to finally to discover the problem after four years of this. - Visitor
