1996 Lincoln Town Car ProblemsCompressor 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.
The composite (plastic) intake manifold may crack near the thermostat housing and cause a coolant leak. Ford released an updated manifold that was reinforced to prevent a recurrence. No recall was issued for this problem but Ford did extend the warranty to seven years on some models from the date of purchase.
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.

Had new tires put on car,they didn't turn off air ride
car sputters some times at highway speeds but when slowing down or stopping it shuts off. What do I need to look at because it has shut off when turning into oncoming traffic or coming to stop at an intersection.
Replace most of the front end including arms, bushings, stabilizers, also replaced rear air bag. Reduced noise when turning but even the smallest bump sounds like shaking a tray of silverware under my hood.
