In response to your answer regarding my dad's 96 Lincoln Town Car dieing and not starting up for 5 to 20 minutes, I talked with him about your answer back. He did tell me the last shop tested his fuel pump, which was fine. So he said when his car has died, he sprayed starting fluid up through the air cleaner, which the car would start, but as soon as the starting fluid burned off, it would die. Some times he has gotten it to run. What I'm wondering is if there isn't any juice getting to his fuel injector, is this how it would react? If this is the problem, what electrical source powers the injectors? Can that be the culpret then? It sure sounds like the injectors aren't getting the juice to spray gas into the cylinders. Is this correct, injectors need juice to spray fuel into the cylinders? The plugs are firing. No check engine light has ever come on. What's your opinion on this possibility? We thank you for your input on our dilema. Hopefully we may have finally found the answer that no shop has ever been able to determine.
have the same problem?
