1990 Lincoln Town Car Problems

Problems With EGR System are Common in High Dust Areas

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.

Overheating Due to a Damaged Impeller

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.

 

Compressor Failure Due to Air Leaks From Air Suspension Struts and Drier

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.

1990 Lincoln Town Car Reviews

On my way to work, my car begin to come to a jolting stop on it's on. The car would not move out of the middle of the road. All the gears worked so it can't be the transmission. We tried putting it in neutral and having another car try to push it from the back and nothing moved still. What could the problem be???
Mine has 103K miles, and runs like brand new. Best car I have ever owned.
Great Car Now Has 205,000 Miles and only thing had to get repaired so far is the thermostat that got closed stuck for $80 at a shop, Would recommend this car for anyone!!
