1999 Lincoln Continental V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 128000 miles
On my 99 Continental I had the service engine light come on. In the manual it says engine has run out of fuel, poor fuel quality, and improperly installed gas cap. The light came on with a quarter of a tank of gas so maybe rule out bad fuel. I have not let the car run out of fuel. Finally, I have checked the gas cap and it is secured. Any advice? I have not given it three driving cycles, however, like the manual says. Though, the oddity I have been having with the fuel is when pumping gas the pump keeps getting shut off (The gas station pump, not the fuel pump). This is a huge pain because the pumps (At different stations) are always kicked off and I have to keep releasing the handle. Any reason why the car is kicking off the gas pump and would it have any correlation with the service engine light?
