1997 Lincoln Continental Problems

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

Sagging suspension can be a result of air suspension struts and/or drier leaking air. These type of air leaks can lead to failure of the air suspension compressor.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

In high dust areas, problems with the EGR system are common. The filter for the EGR solenoid may plug and cause the EGR to activate when it should not; this can cause the engine to stall. The dirty filter should be replaced to correct this concern.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

Vibration caused by the air compressor for the air suspension can be solved by installing an insulator kit at the air compressor mounting points.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

Prior to jacking or lifting a vehicle with air suspension, you must turn off the suspension switch. The switch is generally located in the trunk or on the right side of the passenger foot well.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

An exhaust leak may develop in front of the catalytic converter. This type of leak should be corrected as soon a possible to avoid damaging the catalytic converter.
