Lincoln Continental 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.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

Vibration caused by the air compressor for the air suspension can be solved by installing an insulator kit at the air compressor mounting points.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

Prior to jacking or lifting a vehicle with air suspension, you must turn off the suspension switch. The switch is generally located in the trunk or on the right side of the passenger foot well.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

An exhaust leak may develop in front of the catalytic converter. This type of leak should be corrected as soon a possible to avoid damaging the catalytic converter.

Lincoln Continental Reviews

We just bought a used 1999 Lincoln Continental.. It's a great car. Wonderful interior - nothing wrong with that! 110,000 miles (yes in 2014).. Carfax no accidents.. Minor dings on the outside. We did have to replace the Valve cover gaskets just shortly after getting it, found a great mechanic that specializes in restoration and cares about his work!.. He owns a Mustang and took great care of us. The heating doesn't heat up FAST like the old cars we are used to .. guess that's how 'luxury' is supposed to heat up.. The steering still has that nice little 'Ford' glitch when we turn as our LTD did.. and the prior Ford vehicles we've had.. it's a 'creaking' turn.. ALL of our Fords, New and old have had that.. Its a ford thing.. Other than that.. Great Car.. Very happy .. and can fit a family of 5 very comfortably..!

I have the 93 lincoln continental executive series and it's been a real money pit. I've only had it for about 2 years now and had to replace many things like the whole suspension had to be converted to coil spring shocks because they used those garbage airbag shocks that don't last and rot out over time, replaced the battery many times date to it being drained by faulty switches and wires, gas gauge had stopped working at some point and I don't plan on fixing it anytime soon, and you don't ever want to replace the windshield because that will run you about $900. But in all after fixing some of the problems it really is a nice car. Gets ok mpg about 18/24mpg if your not jeeping it, the interior is very comfortable but I would prefer it had cloth seats, the exterior holds its value but sometime down the road you will run into major problems be prepared to empty your wallet.

have a 1993 Lincoln Continental that has 32,000 miles only and hasn't been driven much that I inherited from my aunt and the AC doesn't work but the heater does and the high beam doesn't work and some sort of play in steering when turning wheel left. Looking for auto repair shops that specializes in old lincolns and is more price competitive than a dealer. Need estimate to fix AC, make switch for high beam lights to stick and hold instead of having to hold by hand manually and take a look at why a little pull in steering to the left

{{{CREAM~PUFF LINCOLN CONTINENTAL 2000 AT Mere 79,000 miles vs average mileage should be Now at over 150,000 miles:

This Baby Replaced My "Sorry Loss of 1988 Ford Thunderbird...She Comes as a Close 2nd with All COMFORTS ONE WOULD DESIRE>>>This Lincoln Is Awesome With Her ALL TRACTION IN WINTER DURING THOSE SNOW STORMS...I NEVER FELT SAFER. I love those heated seats for Winter Season & of course, Auto CLIMATE CONTROL.
For A POWERHOUSE 8 CYLINDER,,,She does GREAT on 19 M/P/G...I know that is NOT impressive for these HARDSHIP 2012 ECONOMIC/ENERGY CONSCIOUS TIMES....
***BUT PLEASE READ THE "POOR" RESULTS OF PRIUS..."You Pay Over $20-30,000...To Achieve Reduced Gas Consumption..=HELLO, LATEST REPORT EVALUATES YOUR INVESTMENT TURNOVER SHALL BE 10-15 Years!!

By Then Your PRIUS WILL DRASTICALLY DEPRECIATE IN VALUE...

WELL, THE LINCOLN DID WIN OVER FOR JUST FEW MILES DIFFERENCE...SHE IS PAID OFF...THUS...WHY SHOULD I PUT MYSELF IN DEBT FOR A LOSER PRIUS>>>>>DUHHHHHHH...and even LOSE comfort while driving..

YES,.TRULY WEIGH COMFORT n STABILITY n FAIRLY DECENT MPG..vs THESE HYBRIDS AT EXORBITANT PRICING OVER $18,000...
