HI Guys, I have a 2004 Lincoln Town Car Limo. 4.6 l motor. Same as the regular car. On idle after about 30 minutes. It starts to act like it wants to stall. It will stay on idle (rough), but then when I go to leave it will drive, but I have to keep pumping gas pedal, after about 5 minutes it runs fine. I changed the number 5 and number 6 Coil, but they keep coming up only after letting car idle again for a period of time? Please help.
Also I need a new fuel indicator which is in gas tank. Code 460 and 463. Could this be the reason for my other problems? Those 2 codes are constant.

Thank you, Big Mike

Hi Mike,

I don't think the float level response in tank is causing the issue. I do need to know something. The P0171 and 174 both show up as a lean fuel mixture. Have you checked for vacuum leaks and fuel pressure? By any chance does the vehicle have an exhaust leak near the exhaust manifold? A lean mixture can be causing the issue.

Thanks Joe! No I haven't I'm going to do a compression test on the cylinders, but will check for vacuum leaks and fuel pressure, as well, and let you know.

Let me know what you find. Based on the codes, I don't think it is a compression issue. I guess it could cause the misfire codes, but not the lean codes. I suspect it is either a vacuum issue or fuel pressure.

Let me know what you find. I really interested in hearing the results.

Take care,
Joe

Follow up: I have done the vacuum check, except for the vacuum gauge. I don't have that tool. So far there seems to be no leaks. My A/C is blowing hot in the front, but not in the rear passenger compartment of limo. Not sure if that is related? I'm hoping it just needs to be recharged. I'll be recharging A/C, and checking fuel pressure these next few days. Also, have a new code come up p2195? Any ideas?

Good morning.

Just to reinforce Joe's replies, I agree that you may have low fuel pressure causing the codes. Very common for this issue.

2195 is a lean indication also connected to the other codes.

Follow up: Hi guys, thanks for your timely responses and input. When I first got the 171 and 174 code I originally tried to clean the MAP sensor. Well a few later, as I'm still getting those codes other things start to happen ie: PO 300.305, 306, and P2195. So my buddy brought over his smoke machine, and before we plugged it in we took the MAP sensor off and thoroughly sprayed it with carburetor cleaner (which they suggest you don't use), then before reinstall MAP cleaner. I'm not sure if I cleared the codes, but my Check Engine light immediately was gone! Haven't let it sit and idle for a long period yet, but that solved the issue, which in turn brought on the other issues. I'll be returning my other coils purchased tomorrow. Thanks guys!

Update 2: Took Limo out on run last night, after about 30 minutes of idle time it started back up. Car vibrating, motor shaking like it wanted to stall. After 2 hours took her back home, (It took 5 minutes before car engaged and drove normal). Checked codes and got the same PO171, 174, 300, 305, 316, P2195. Haven't a clue what 316 is? I will do a complete smoke vacuum check next week!

316 is a misfire during the first 1000 engine RPM.

In most cases, it is the number 6 ignition coil failure.
