Engine Performance problem
1996 Lincoln Town Car V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 108, 00 miles
I have had this car to the repair shop three times,
initially, the mechanic could not experience the stumbling as it was intermittent.
More recently, he did acknowledge that a problem exisited and felt it.
In every case, he was not able to read a code; and, insisted that I had to wait until the code reader showed him a code.
He would not recommend an engine tune up as that would not guarantee to fix the problem.
High on the list of probabilities is one of theeight coils is intermitently defective.
I asked if they could "hi pot" the coils and identify the culprit.
I got a NO and I should just wait until I get a "Check Engine light on the dashboard.
There must be a way to find this problem.
have the same problem?
