really need to check for codes an do a fuel pressure test. You have several computers on this car and there are dozens of reasons why it will crank but won't start. If you need more help, here are some shops in your area. http://repairpal.com/directory?address=78232&car_brand_names=Lincoln

Just on the off chance...check the inertia fuel cut of switch in trunk. Sometimes this button kicks out cutting off fuel pressure due to some kind of impact. On a wild occasion, this button can be pressed and your car will start. Secondly, check to see if an anti-theft light is flashing on cranking. 1996 was Lincoln's first foray into anti-theft keys and you could have an anti-theft system issue. Good luck!

the same happened to me about a month ago. The diagonose was the crankshaft sensor. Labor and materials was $130.00.
