hi, need some help! problem,1998 lincoln continental 4.0L DOHC engine,ok car was running great,shut it off went back approx. 4 hours,will not fire at all. have approx. 1/4 tank of fuel. any ideas?
1 dead battery
2 dead starter
3 dead ignition system
4 dead fuel pump
5 broken wire(s)
6 plugged fuel filter
7 lots more
need to give more info
Im no mechanic but what oborste is saying sounds like one of the problems with the car.
Does anything turn in the engine when you try to start it?
Are there any noises?
Same thing happened to my car. It was the crank sensor
engine cranks fine will not fire,acts like it is getting no fuel.
Well I think that rules out battery, starter etc...
Fuel pump maybe?
Are you getting spark?
Mine cranked also, but would not fire. Check for spark. I thought my problem was the coil, but turned out to be a crank sensor. Hope this helps
