    Key programming

    It has been a while since I screwed around with the keys/PATS. As I recall--- The transceiver is the black box under the ignition switch. It has a black ring attached to it that goes around the ignition switch. This transceiver sends power to the key, and then reads the code in the key. The...

    Key programming

    If the “new” column has the electronic signal receiver attached to it, and the “new” keys are the ones that came with the column it SHOULD work. The key(s) sends a signal to electronic signal receiver . If the electronic signal receiver on the column recognizes the key – it should turn off...

    Fuel issues

    For future reference: ----- As I recall the '02 Conti has what is called a returnless fuel system. In the older type return systems, the fuel pump runs at one constant speed. A pressure regulator is used to return unused fuel back to the tank. This maintains the proper fuel pressure to the...

    Fuel issues

    If you can -- check the fuel pressure. This past mid-November my '02 would not start. It had 6 psig fuel pressure. It should be in the 35-40 psig range. My mechanic put in a new pump - all is well. Also - don't forget to check/replace the fuel filter. I don't have my service manuals handy - so...

    What did you do to your Continental today?

    I used my Continental to take care of a couple of errands this past Tuesday. I went to start the car Wednesday afternoon – no start – it cranked over but would not fire up. Being old and lazy, I had AAA take it to my mechanic. He found it had 6-7 psi fuel pressure - a bad fuel pump. He dropped...

    Replacing front air springs on a 96 Lincoln Continental?

    Get yourself a Ford factory service manual that covers your year. DVD copies are available on ebay, and don't cost a lot. (My service manual is for years 2000 to 2002, so I can not help you.)

    Parking brake auto disengage in D only?

    I never use mine either. The owners manual says it releases only in forward gears only - not reverse.

    '99 Lincoln Continental Refurbishment

    The chrome Collector's Edition wheels are the same 10 spoke brushed aluminum wheels that are on my Conti, and looks like yours too. I like those wheels in aluminum, but they look great chromed. They keep the the factory look, which I like too. Since you don't use your Conti during the winter...

    rear wheel hubs

    Since the car has been sitting in a garage, the grease hasn't been exposed to the elements like excessive heat and water. Along with the low miles, it's likely the grease hasn't broken down. I would first look around and see if there are any signs of leakage, and spin the wheels to see if there...

    Replacing front air springs on a 96 Lincoln Continental?

    Check out Strutmasters and Suncore - along with Arnott they are all in the air suspension replacement/conversion business. I would stick with a name supplier over the China made - you get what you pay for.

    '99 Lincoln Continental Refurbishment

    If the old duralast was a gold series, it was rated 700CCA & 875 CA. The Motorcraft has more reserve capacity. Good choice for anyone that has real winters.

    '99 Lincoln Continental Refurbishment

    You got 16 years out of a duralast?? That must be some kind of a world's record. I use duralast because the store is close by. The last duralast gold in my Conti lasted 4 years, and one month. My average is around 4 to 5 years at the most, but the heat down here doesn't help battery life. I...

    What did you do to your Continental today?

    I have used clipsandfasteners.com in the past. They have about every type fastener ever invented. When I needed door panel fasteners for my Chrysler, I measured one that was still good, and found the exact one on their web site. They have a picture and dimensions for the different fasteners and...

    moving a non running car

    Towing companies jockey around non running front wheel drive cars all day long. I don't see why a professional auto transporter wouldn't be able to do the same. Tell them up front your concerns. If they are a professional transporter, they will have the knowledge and equipment, and will know...

    '99 Lincoln Continental Refurbishment

    Welcome Carl – You have a very good looking '99 Conti. How many miles on the clock?? Can't help you with the e brake problem. I never used it on my '02 (or on any of the cars I've had over the years). I'm sure Svets will check in and let you know what he did. My'02 is sitting in the garage and...
