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.

Lincoln Mark VIII Problems
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.
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.
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.
Corrosion can form at the grounding points near the battery. There may be electrical faults and the engine may crank but not start.

Lincoln Mark VIII Reviews
i love dependable cars , especially the ones that look great & exceed mfg's "failure modes". my Linc. MK8 1994 has been a dream & i write this in 2013!!the engine is a 4.6l quad cham. The air ride suspension gave out every 4-5 yrs. @ a cost of just above 500$ per fix. in 2013 air ride parts were not to be found so i went to the sandard spring/coil suspension. noticed very little difference except when i was doing 140 mph. one wild night , i noticed a bouncy feeling in the "ride". right now the only problem is sticking power windows on both doors. oh & the drivers latch (door opener)gave out& was replaced on 2008.when in EPTX you see a burgundy mk8 with a custom made skull n crossbones for a grill. that'll be me with a huge grin, knowing this beauty of a car payed itself off decades ago by being the best car i've ever owned!! firstname.lastname@example.org

I bought mine with 144,000 miles and it now has 177000. I have had the usual problems: air ride (I got it converted to coils),blend door,and broken driver door handle. It has a slow oil pan leak. I have put money into the car, but I love it and intend to keep it forever. You have to love these cars to get one. If you don't love them, don't even think of getting one. They are beautiful, handle well for a big car, and accelerate like a scaled dog once you get them going. But they are not a cheap date.
I have a 1997 Lincoln Mark 8 and when I take my foot off of the accelerator it cuts off, what could be the problem?
I HAVE PROBLEMS WHIT THE AHEAD LIGHTS AND THE TURN LIGHTS SO I CANT FOUND THE FLASHERS AND THE RELAYS ABOUT THIS PROBLEM... CAN YOU HELP ME?
