Lincoln Continental Problems

Inspect transmission/fluid every 30,000 miles

You may be able to prevent transmission problems by servicing the transmission and inspecting the fluid every 15,000 to 30,000 miles. If the fluid is dark or burned then the transmission fluid should be changed.

Oil coated air filer causing mass air flow sensor failure

Do not use air filters with oil-coated elements. They may cause premature failure of the mass air flow sensor; this is not covered under the warranty.

Adjust AC Clutch Air Gap For Proper Compressor Operation

Checking and adjusting the AC compressor clutch air gap can extend the service life of the AC compressor.

Was given this car from my Dad, because the dealer at trade in would only give him $500. He has owned this car since new and he did not put a nickel into it except for tires and Brake pads/Rotors.
