Hi, I have a 1980 Lincoln continental mark vi, and I took it to the car wash to wash the engine and went to start the car and it will not start. I have changed the batter, coil, ignition module, as well as crank sensor which I believe acts as the pick up sensor because it has a distributor with no wires in it. I have checked with a multimeter to test for power and it seems like I have power going to the coil but it isn't giving a spark. I have done several tests to make sure. Im not sure what else to do. Also I don't know if it matters but just so you are aware the engine is a 351 and it has a motorcraft carburetor which is not like most carburetors, it has sensors on the side of it and two black pump style things on the top. Its not something I am familiar with and just wanted to let you know what kind of carb it has in case that helps with determining any specific info about the car.
have the same problem?
