I drive a 98 lincoln Continental and I think your problem could be your coil pacs. If you could get someone to put it on a diagnostic machine it can help discover which one it is. Good luck.

not potential, but actual cause.
i have 88 LCSS, this is a designer/collector car that sold for almost 30k.
it was a hybrid idea by a designer who applied the designs of a luxury town car with the sport mustang, this car was available for only one model year because luxury car buyers walked away from ford/lincoln which forced them to go back to luxury only...
the original designer of the 88 LCSS was fired also prior to the unveiling of this car because it would have cost $900 more/car to build. instead of trashing the design, ford/lincoln hired a new designer who's first attack on the design was to cheese-ball the electrical system. unfortunetly, its been this way ever since.
if your cluster is damaged, it is a result of a bad electrical system, but none the less, the electrical system will cause more than a faulty air ride system problem as the entire system is barely heavy enough to support the electrical loads needed by the car.
if your car is electric this and electric that, then you must feel as bad as i do, but i like my 88 LCSS, and as time goes on, i will have non factory modifications made to eliminate ford's way of making money off us.
air ride, seperate the system and isolate it from dependency of other system componants.
charging system, remove the power distribution block and utilize heavier gauge wiring so the electricals work off both the battery and alternator.
idea...under factory, if your air ride shorts out such as mine does, its going to short out the brake hydroboost pump's pressure sensor (which means no brakes period), and unlike old cars, even standing on the brake pedal wont help.
fortunately, i was on my way home going uphill when this happened (thank God my van was up against the curb behind me as i rolled backwards into it...LOL)
all in all, best advice, find a reputable electrical specialist and have all components properly wired and non integrated...
#99 of 137 Chrome coming off of tire rims

Ive had a problem with my tires deflating. New ones at that. They told me the chrome was coming off the wheel or rim, and it wont let the tire seal. Has anyone heard of this. And, what to do about it.
#101 of 137 Engine Repair
Sep 07, 2009 (7:11 am)
Recently purchased a 77 Continental with a 460 engine. Problem is car has sat in a garage for last 3 years. Now engine runs fine, until it gets hot/ warms up than it just shuts off. Give it 3 to 4 hours to cool down and starts right back up again and repeats. Car has had a new fuel pump, gas tank, and recently tuned up, plugs, wire, cap, rotor. Will not go farther than 20 or 30 miles, and than it happens. Its not like it stalls, it just dies. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I think the problem maybe the shop putting on the tire, are not seating it on the rim. Pull the tire off the rim and see where the tire bead meets the rim, and look to see if the chrome is coming off. If it is take a wire brush and just brush all excess off. Replace tire and when new tire is on rim bring it up to around 50 LBS PSI, than bring it back down to your 32 or 36 and drive it for a couple miles. If the chrome is coming off the rim, than you may need to get all the chrome off where the bead steats, and repeat process. Check tire valve at core and there that sits in rim.
