The rear air suspension on my 1997 Lincoln
Continental recently went "kaplooey". My
"mechanic" replaced it with standard type
shocks. etc., but the ride is much bumpier
than before. Can the shocks be modified, etc, to give a more "plush" ride ?

what could cause hesitation when trying to accelerate a97 Lincoln town car that has been sitting for two years

I can't find the 12 volt wire that powers the clutch on the compressor. I rebuilt the heads, installed a hi-lift Comp cam, drive gears, Edelbrock intake & carbutor and installed everything and now since the wiring is differant I can't find the 12 volt power supply wire from the heater/air control. There are 3 wires that come off the compressor & 1 of these connects to the hot wire from the control switch.
Can someone help????

Starts and runs fine after sitting a few hours or immediately after cutting off, but if I try to start it 10 min to 2 hrs after driving, it will not idle and will stall unless I rev the engine cosntantly for about 30 sec.

It does not do this very often, maybe once every two too tree weeks. Any suggestions. Does it when the engine is both hot and cold.

Replace catalytic converter after flex pipe ,had two different ways to instal,if you had air tube or without air tube.

why would they not have another part for this they have egr line for all cars before and after the 97.

They no longer make them they have no alternative part my car is dead without it, what can I do?
