#784 of 1123 1999 Lincoln Town Car will not start
Aug 05, 2008 (1:01 pm)
Hi....I have had my car for a year and a half, no problems at all. This morning, I tried to leave for work, and the car would not start. It is getting juice, all of the lights work fine.....I cleaned the battery cables...there was a bit of corrosion...checked the fuses...all of them good. I have a half a tank of gas, and when I crank it, I can't smell any fuel. When I step on the accellerator, I smell no fuel. Any suggestions?

Just thought I would let you know that after having starter fluid sprayed up the tube to the manifold, it started. Turned it off, waited a few minutes, and it started again. No waring lights - I will try it again tonight before I go to bed. Once - fluke, twice - problem. Glad there is a forum - just thought I'd let you know what was up.
#786 of 1123 2003 towncar low beam headlamp replacement

Open hood. There is a large black cover in the front of the engine compartment up to the front of the car. There are 4 little knobs that hold it on. Turn them 1/4 to 1/2 turn counterclockwise and the cover will lift off. The headlamp is mounted in a large socket with three rather large wires in the rear of the headlight lens. It turns 1/2 turn counterclockwise to remove. Remove lamp and get another just like it, then reverse the above procedure. Look in your manual, it will give you the part number of the lamp. This is a very easy job that requires no tools.
#788 of 1123 Lincoln 2007 Engine Cover/overheating
Aug 26, 2008 (8:09 am)
Hi you all.
Recently I bought a 2007 Lin. T.C the engine plastic decoration cover (you know) was not in place. I asked the sales person he said due to overheating this cover is removed. I asked the service specialist at the dealer he said that he had no reports on that. ???
Anyone knows out there which is which? Cover or no cover??

You've been a victim of sales junk. The engine would be MORE likely to overheat WITHOUT the cover. Find one at a junk yard or make the dealer replace the one that is missing. I'd wonder about the car being in a serious accident or otherwise needing major work where the cover was so damaged it couldn't be used again or was lost. You need it, get one somewhere.
#790 of 1123 'CHECK ENGINE light
Sep 09, 2008 (6:37 pm)
There are a few things that will trigger the light and the latest I've discovered is driving at altitudes of 5,000 feet and higher. The car runs fine, gas economy is great, but at higher altitudes the light goes off & on. Currently, we are now at 2,000 feet & the light has stayed off since desending from the Alberta Rockies, Waterton, & Glacier N.P. It teased off & on from Whitefish, MT & to the ID border.
The Town Car is a 94, with Handling Package, 140,000 miles & a new air filter was installed at 138,000. Thus, if the air is too thin, the Check Engine light will go on.
Some things are not to be concerned about and this is one of them.
#791 of 1123 buying a 03 towncar
Sep 12, 2008 (7:23 am)
My 06 cobalts powersterring just recently went out and ive only had it for a year and i cant afford to fix it and being that my husband is in the military a car dealership is letting him purchase a town car with no down payment because he will be deployed to iraq in a couple of months and we need a reliable car. Its a 03 model and i was just wondering if it was expensive to maintain this car and it has 62,000 miles on it. the mileage is not bad but being that it is so low would that make me think it was in a wreck or something. Should i purchase it or what?

FYI I have a 1993 TC Sig series 2nd owner. 128K miles Only major repair has been the Auto temp control actuator door motor $800 cause they had to take the whole dash apart. Car runs like new get 23mpg I love it! I rented a 2008 in Hawaii and that rode great too.

The '03 was a big improvement over previous models.
If it is 5.5 years old, 11,272 miles per year is low miles.
Our '94 has 141,000 miles and the only major expense has been replacing the gears in the differential 97,000 and Lincoln paid 1/2 of that expense because their factory lube was defective.\
Take it for a 50 mile test drive. If it passes, buy it.
