I have a brand new alternator and battery and my dash still goes black what can it be? And when I turn the car off and try to turn it back on it doesn't want to start what can it be?
I can get it to turn over and started but if i take my foot off the pedal the RPM drops all the way down and the car stops running. If i tap the gas before the RPM drops all the way, i can tap the pedal repeatedly and get it to stay running. But as soon as i let of the pedal it will not stay running in an idle position.

Even when you push down on the front end on driver side you could hear it squeaking how do I fix that
the car will start every time but not the first time you crank the engine. the fuel pump is not coming on. when you turn the key off and the back on it starts and run fine. But when you shut it off for a hour or more it does the same thing. I took the gas cap off to i could verify the pump was not running. the fuel pump and pcm. were replaced. any help would be great.
how do I replace the high pressure power steering line on a 1997 Lincoln Town car
side passenger air bag makes clicking noise
I have a 97 Linc Town car, it has 140,000 miles on it. Last week it hesitated to start (turned over like 3-4 times then started). Yesterday (3/28/16), on the first start up of the day I put the key in turned it to the start position, and nothing happened, no noises, nothing. I put the key (ignition) back in the off position, and tried again, and it started right up. The same exact thing happened today (3/29/16). I had my battery checked and it was fine (12.5). If i let the car sit for too long, like from mid morning until the following around 7:30am, I have this issue. Also the belt has been chirping (Dayco), and appears to be slightly misaligned, as there is a slight wobble coming off the idle pulley to the alternator. The belt also seems to have extra play (not much but some), and some wear on one edge. I'm not good with the electrical aspects hence why I am here. My thoughts are Fuel filter, fuel pump, ignition switch, or some relay, all the fuses are intact.
