#3 of 137 Last Year for Air Suspension??
Jan 08, 2007 (9:47 am)
I have a '95 Continental that I like better than any car I've ever owned (and I've owned nearly fifty cars in my fifty-five years of driving). I have had almost no problems with it in the five years I've owned it. I've put 52,000 miles of the total of 91,000 miles that are on it. Since nothing lasts forever I'm thinking ahead to replacement time. I'd be interested in another very low miles car but I don't like the air suspension on my '95. I've had zero problems with the suspension, but I don't really like the way it rides, and it is noisy. I understand that Ford changed to a more conventional suspension somewhere along the way befor they quit production. Anybody know what year was changed over? Thanks.
#6 of 137 ON MY 97 CONTINENTAL CAR STALLS AND LOSES POWER

WHEN I ACCELERATE THE CAR DOES NOT SPEED UP. IT ALSO STALLS. IT LOSES POWER. WHEN I STEP ON THE GAS IT FEELS LIKE THE EXAUST IS LEAKING OR NOT CONNECTED. MY MECHANIC SAID THE EXAUST IS FINE AND CATILIC CONVERTER. THE SERVICE LITE IS ON. AUTO ZONE SAID TWO CYLINDERS ARE NOT FIRING. I CHANGED ALL SPARK PLUGS. I AM ABOUT TO REPLACE WIRES. I INSTALLED A GAS FILTER AND CHANGED THE OIL AND FILTER.

My 94 does this too, but also I have a question you may be able to help me with.
I had the transmission lines go bad and I had them taken out and now cannot seem to see where they go. There are two lines coming out of the radiator going somewhere and there are two emply connections on the transmission cooler and then two coming out of the transmission itself. I cannot find where these lines go. I have been to the library and looking for a diagram but nothing seems to bring up the preciswe locations. Thanks for your help. Mark

It appears that I am not the only one with these troubles. I also have a 1997 Lincoln Continental acting very similar to yours. My vehicle has been doing this for at least 1 1/2 yrs. All though I am the new owner I have a pretty good history of the car. My car has had new fuel pump/filter, plugs/wires, sensors of which I'm not sure which ones, and a few scanner diagnostics tests, all of which have'nt helped. My car does not show any codes, no engine light or any other indicators. If you find anything positive could you please forward your fix, i would very much appreciate it.
Thanks ahead of time.

Hello Lincoln owners:
I recently bought a 2000 L. Continental. Iīm happy with it, but i dont know why doesnt appear snapshots of that car on the research pages such Edmundīs or CARS.COM.
Is this a Good Car?
Is it necesary to fill it up always with premium gas?
#10 of 137 2001 Lincoln Continental Signature Series

I have a 2001 Lincoln Continental Signature Series with all the bells and whistles.
My problem is that I start up the car, it starts perfectly, then when I put it in reverse or drive, it stalls out. Does anyone know what this problem is? Once it is driving, it goes well....and this has been happening for the last couple of months.
