1998 Lincoln Navigator Problems

Adjusting AC Clutch Air Gap

Checking and adjusting the AC compressor clutch air gap can extend the service life of the AC compressor.

Check Engine Light Due to PCV Grommet Vacuum Leaks

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.

Corrosion on Battery Cable Ends

Check the battery cable ends frequently for corrosion. Corrosion can easily migrate under the cable insulation and cause numerous electrical faults and drivability issues.
