2003 Lincoln Town Car Repair and Maintenance

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.

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

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.

Vehicles subject to chassis overloading may experience premature rear wheel bearing failure. This could ultimately lead to axle shaft fracture. In the event of axle fracture, the vehicle would lose drive function and would coast to a stop. Loss of drive function could lead to a crash. Dealers will replace the wheel bearings, seals, and axle shafts to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 04S16.

I'm the second owner of my 2003 Town Car and bought it with 23,000 miles on it in 2007 and have only done routine maintenance on this car.
