It doesn't happen all the time, but the majority of the time. The wiper and washer does not stop when turned off.The turn signals work fine.

My check engine light is on and I have been told it could be a sensor or the manifold intake valve may need to be replaced. I would like to know the cost to repair the manifold intake valve and if you know of a reliable shop to do the work. Also, I need brakes soon. Is Just Brakes or NTB reliable ?

I have a 1999 "Stinkin'" Lincoln towncar, and I am at my wits end with this car. I was driving from work the other evening and I started to smell a burning smell. I looked at my gauge,and it was normal. I pulled over and poped the hood,and smoke was rolling from the A/C compressor. The compressor kicks on and off on any heat setting, not just defrost. Anyhow, a friend unplugged the electrical wire to the compressor. This helped stop the compressor from sparking and smoking, so I still have heat. NOW,I noticed after the car has been running for a while, there is a noise in the a metal to metal grinding noise that starts with a low sound to a high sound after I have been driving it for a few minutes. I have no idea what's going on now. Again,the car is Not over heating. Any advise would be greatly appreciated!

The sensors on bank 1 and 2 are going out the check engine light came on and the shows they are running too lean.

I have a 2000 town car that the driver side electric seat does not work. I can hear the relay click but the seat will not move.

My key is stuck in the ignition switch! One time it was stuck and I jiggled the key and made sure the gear was all the way in park and it just came out. Now it won't. I keep the key in there and just set the alarm. Now my car is hesitant to start every time I'm ready to leave. Its possibly wearing my battery or starter out. Help me please.!!!! How do I get the key out? Note: have hard shifting between gears, sometimes i have to release the gas pedal for the car to shift gears, is my transmission slipping or giving out on me?

All components work for heater/controls. No air comes out, cannot hear blower running. air vents switch over with controls. checked fuses under dash, all seem good. any other things i can check before taking to repair shop, or is this something i can fix myself? i do have some mechanical skills.

My 1992 towncar has been a good one. When we got back from town today I parked in Driveway to wash all the mud off, (we have snow and mush. Roads were mostly dry. I hosed down the car to remove mud and when I tried to start it. I got one little click which I get each time I turn the starter switch strangely enough all the little dash light come on showing problems with everything. Headlights work fine. Battery is only about a month old. HELP
Thank You

how do you replace a heater core in this car? what has to be done?

My town car's suspension system leveling pump has recently started running within minutes of starting the car and runs about every 10-15 minutes for about 2-3 minutes.

My 91 lincoln has a hard time starting. When the engine does finally catch there is a loud whirring noise coming from the front of the engine compartment. Could this be a fuel pump problem?

leaking power steering fluid making popping noise when turning sharp


cost to fix

does the town car have a low oil shutoff sensor

Is it okay to ask to inspect the finished work on their lift before I settle up? The Autotire tech totaled the charge of $1285 when he called (I had dropped the car off earlier) told me the diagnosis for repairing this (by replacing both tie rods, idler arms, the pitman arm and lower right and left ball joint, replacing both shocks, doing an alignment, and flushing the coolant). I gave the go ahead for the $1285 estimate and after he got into the job called again to claim the old right ball joint just fell out when he started working on it and then said I needed a new lower passenger control arm after the original estimate of 1285. At first he told me that he could only get the part new at the dealer for $500 and then I asked about a used one. He lter called back and said he found one in good condition for $100. Then he also added another $100 for labor charge which made $1285 become $1485. He also told me the control arm didn't need new bushings (seems like it should when replacing the lower control arm on a 1997 Lincoln town car with 118k miles). I'm going in tomorrow to settle up (they didn't finish on Saturday) and I'd like to inspect to see if he did all of that, because of how he handled the control arm (it would take much longer to explain why). I figure if he did all of this, then $1485 seems okay. Also, how can I tell if the coolant was flushed and replaced? Thanks.
