1998 Lincoln Mark VIII 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.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

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.

Engine -- Verified

Erratic engine coolant temperature or intermittent overheating can be caused by corrosion inside the water pump. The impeller may spin on the water pump shaft or the impeller may corrode. Either condition reduces coolant circulation resulting in engine overheating.
 

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

Corrosion can form at the grounding points near the battery. There may be electrical faults and the engine may crank but not start.

1998 Lincoln Mark VIII Reviews

I bought mine with 144,000 miles and it now has 177000. I have had the usual problems: air ride (I got it converted to coils),blend door,and broken driver door handle. It has a slow oil pan leak. I have put money into the car, but I love it and intend to keep it forever. You have to love these cars to get one. If you don't love them, don't even think of getting one. They are beautiful, handle well for a big car, and accelerate like a scaled dog once you get them going. But they are not a cheap date.

having problems with the air suspension and finding that part... I cant find any help on that problem.
