Engine Performance problem
1989 Lincoln Town Car V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 165000 miles
i just bought a 1989 licoln towncar. I replaced the plus, wires heater hoses and air intake temp sensor, the car started but it would not accelerate very well. It got up to about 30 mph, and it was stalling out. I replaced the fuel filter, and then the car would not start at all. It cranks, but it wont turn over. I pulled out a spark plug and it was very dirty. It is black. Obviously I think that this is the problem, but I cant figure out why they are so dirty. It was only driven about 2 miles on the new plugs and wires, and they look like they were driven for 2 years. The black is fairly easy to clean off, and I am going to sand them down to clean them up. I am quite sure that this is only going to happen again immediatly though. Any ideas on what could be causing this? Please help! My family needs this car to get around as it is the only transport we have. I am going crazy trying to figure this out!
have the same problem?
