Hi, I have a 1991 lincoln towncar executive with a 4.6 ohc v8 141,000m, I have had this car for 4 years and no problems until now, I was recenlty going to sell the car(it was running fine)so I took it to the car wash to spray down the engine with enginebrite to get at least some of the dirt and oil off, after that I drove it to a gas station and it was still running fine, it drove fine all the way home, I let it sit for about a day, then I went to start it and it started up fine but was now idling a lil rough, I looked at the engine, it looked ok, but when I drove it down the block it started shaking real bad and backfireing(popping) but only when im starting out or going about 5-10 mph, the transmission seems to shift ok, could this be faulty wires?Plugs. Distruibuters? Or something else the exhaust is also spitting out water but I think its always done this. Note:i have cleaned MANY engines this way and this one in the past and have never had a problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you.
have the same problem?
