1998 Lincoln Mark VIII Problems

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.

A vacuum leak from the PCV grommet vacuum leak can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. The molded rubber hose connections may crack and collapse, causing the vehicle to run roughly. A damaged PCV hose will require replacement.

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.

1998 Lincoln Mark VIII Questions

I changed the oil and didn't know about turning off the air suspension. The only change I've noticed (driven approx. 10 miles since then) is a message on the Message Center about checking out the air suspension. Did jacking the car up w/o switching off the air suspension do any damage?

When car over heats' why does it shut of everything? I can't even jump start it. What is happening? I stopped to put water, lights don't even turn on its pitch black!

The test code shows 888 which is a pass. What could the problem be?
