An going problem. When heater or A/C is turned on no power as found by mechanics they say it is the cars electronic control. I would like to buy this car otherwise,Was asking 1200. thinking of offering $970. what is cost to replace if need be? What do you recommend?

Ok. I have a 96 lincoln towncar executive series. . For some reason my car will not start. I can't hear the click when I try and start it. My lights come on when I open the door. And you can hear the beeping sound when u insert the key while u have the door open. But when I try to start the car the gas light. speedometer won't turn on. As well as my radio. But all the rest of the electric works.. Would anybody hav an idea what the problem is?

the car doesn't overheat but makes a lot of steam from leak steam comes from behind altanator can it be hose or freeze plug or manifold and how do I find out witch it is

When the heat goes out the temp goes up if i keep turning the heat on and off i hear a noise in the dash then the temp goes back to normal and the heat work again

When I would hit speed bumps it would make what I would call a grinding noise, also when I would brake hard it would veer left.
Like I said earlier the nose is on the ground.

My Town Car has been acting up when I start the car. It seems like over the past year or so, when I crank the car it does not always start on the 1st try. As time has past the problem just gets worse. The other day when I tried to start the car it would just turn the motor over but not start. I tried so many times that I ran the battery down. I think the fuel pump has died but before I replace it, I would like to test the relay. I am disabled and don't have much energy to search for the relay or even test it but I sure don't want to pay a shop to replace the fuel pump if the problem is only a bad relay.

I also need to know where the fuel pump relay is located and how to test the relay.

Car is running excellent-told it was vacuum leak diagnostic code several times

Car sat idle for 6 yrs and front calipers were in op. New calipers along with new pads for from and new pads only on rear..

turned off checked antifreeze it had none,had too much eng/oiln ground from battery to body was cut cranks but wont turn all started when tranny wouldnt go into overdrive

I didnt have this problem until my lower ball joint broke replace the ball joint my car started to lean and ride with a wobble

When driving and more so when making turns, the front suspension makes squeaky noises and every once in a while, it will make a thumping noise when anyone gets out of it. It doesn't do it all the time, but once it starts it continues for a while.

yesterday it would not start and checked again today and still won't start
