1998 Lincoln Continental V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 93000 miles
I bought a second-hand 98 lincoln continental, 93000 miles, No check engine light, passed the emission test, everything works fine (both locally and high way, 60mph), except that the gas mileage, it shows around 10mpg on the meter(mostly local), and a whole tank (20 gallon) can only go 200miles btw, I'm driving very gently. I have checked the air filter, which seems pretty clean, I've changed all the spark plugs as well, no improvement either, currently, I'm thinking about checking the throttle sensor, or MAF sensor. The accelerator seems pretty soft, doesn't increase the speed two much for the first 1/2 inch, and sometimes there is a little gas smell from the tail pipe. Do you has an idea about what's going wrong?
have the same problem?
