2001 Lincoln Continental Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2001 Lincoln Continental

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.

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.

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

I have a burnt valve and it's producing thick white smoke coming from my right tail pipe.

Once back door is open it won't shut ... freezes open.
I can eventually close it after an hour of trying
various things.
Also both back door won't automatically unlock ...
have to manually unlock from inside ?

It causes my battery to go dead. Is it a bad module ? which one?

I really hated to see the end of production of one of the finest vehicles on the road. I have owned three, still own two and will keep one until I can no longer obtain parts or it just dies. Very comfortable, easy to drive, safe, and very stylish to boot.

94,000 miles. All bushings in rear worn out. Rear sway bar broken..1000 bucks. Torque converter leaking fluid....Ford mechanic said he has not seen this before. Lucky me....1360 bucks. Keyless entry faulty...400 bucks. Ambient air temp sensor failed. I fixed for 14 bucks. There was a reason Ford stopped making this model.
