My father in law just gave us a 1981 Lincoln Continental Mark VI. It pretty much has been sitting since 2000. He periodically changed the oil as it sat through the years. He would dump gas out of a can in it also through the years. I topped the gas off the day we went to pick it up. About 3 gallons worth was all that was needed. We then drove it 6 hours from Tennessee to Alabama. The car rode awesome. Never a glitch. The next morning we went to drive it, and it would hardly run. It would act like it was stuck in gear. Then take off. Wouldnt barely make it up a slight incline. I could smell a rubber like burning smell. I did have the defroster on and the a/c does not work. I sometimes hear vacuum coming from the dash or under the dash. I would love to keep this car because its in great shape. Any suggestions?
