CHECK TRAC LIGHT..

2000 Lincoln Town Car

2000 Lincoln Town Car V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 144000 miles

Hello,

on my 2000 Lincoln Towncar the " Check Trac" lights comes on while I'm driving and then the temperature needle starts to rise and fall. The car shuts off and I have to pull over to the side, place it in park and then restart.

I haven't been able to get a accurate diagnosis and need some help.

Thanks

I have the same problem with my 2000 Lincoln, 75,000 miles.
After checking tiires, new fuel pump, full engine service (oil, filters, etc.) New sensor in computer and disableling Trac Lite, Still not diagnosed or fixed.
But, try this: When first starting engine, accelerate the gas pedal a little. I started keeping track of the miles between incidents, approx. 9-20 miles. Since I started doing this, I now have gone 80 miles without it dying. Did I find a remedy? Don't know.
