Rough Idle and/or Engine Stalling Condition on Lincoln Town Car

Problem Description and Possible Solution

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.
