1984 Other Ford Models V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles
I have an 84 Lincoln Town Car. It has 120,000 miles. The night before I heard a couple of putters while driving home. The next morning my car wouldn't start. It isn't firing. I have had the electrical box on the distributor checked and they said it passed. The mechanic hooked up a new coil and it still didn't start. He is thinking it may be the wiring in the ignition switch. Is there anything else we can check easily to see if that is the problem, or is there something else we should check? There were a few times in the beginning of trying to just turn the key and start the car that it seemed to try to fire as I was turning the key back to the off position from it being turned all the way on (trying to start). Right when the car was at the last movements of the turn back from starting to on (to listen to music), the car would sound like it was trying to start. Any ideas? What should I tell the mechanic to look at.
have the same problem?
