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?

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.

I have a 1999 Lincoln Continental and it has the same problem as your 2001 Lincoln. It on the first start when cold it starts fine but when you shift into drive it stalls. It re-starts just fine. If you immediately press the gas as you shift into drive its fine.
I was wondering if anyone had any answers?

I finally took it to the dealer because it would start but go nowhere - they found it had a valve that was sticking and no gas was really going anywhere so it stalled out. Cost just over $500 to fix but runs fine now.

Trans cooler may be after market and have a hole in it if not being used. I would run one line from tranny to radiator (Stock Cooler) then come out of the radiator to the trans cooler, then out of the trans cooler and back to the transmission. Sounds like yours is going from trans to Radiator and back to trans.
#14 of 137 want to sell my 95 Lincoln Continental.. don't know where to post this!

I have a beautiful 1995 Lincoln Continental (beige). The other morning, it wouldn't start. Up to then it ran perfectly. My mechanic suspects it's the Timing Chain. I want to sell it.
I recently replaced the air suspension system with the coil suspension system, guaranteed for life of the car.
The body is in beautiful condition. (some paint peeled off the rubber front bumper). Inside, there is a ripe in driver's seat upholstery, and the headliner is coming down in the back above the rear window. The passenger window works intermittently (tho it is up, it has never stuck when down)
I have done all scheduled maintenance, and kept records of that. Emissions passed easily.
What i want to find is a Lincoln Enthusiast, who would love to own and work on the car, and restore it to its day-before-yesterday top-running condition.
If anyone knows such a person, Please let me know!
Thanks so much, You all !
