1983 Mark VI Will Not Stay Running & Follow Up Reply

Hello Sir,

I have a 83 Lincoln Mark Vl it will start and run for a half hour or till hot I guess, then it just shuts down just as if you turn off the key, no spit or sputter, just stops running, then will not restart till it cools down, do you have any idea ?? I been trying to get this running right 10 years now, it is like new but will not stay running,I have changed about every thing, I mean every thing, under the hood, as well as a new fuel pump, just in case, I am at my wits end, Thank you so much for your time Sir.

Bill

Hi Bill -

From the information that you have provided it sounds like one of the electronic ignition components is failing when the under hood temps reach their normal operating level. Did you replace any of these parts with new or used? Used or even good known used electronic parts can be unreliable. New parts and tune up technicians are very hard to find for these systems and that era of Lincoln is not in for service here at Lincoln Land very often these days. If you haven't already tried this, a good idea would be to go on line and search for a forum that is dedicated to these years of Lincolns. Your problem is not unique for these vehicles and I am sure that the correct forum will have some meaningful information on that subject for you as well as a parts source.

Sincerely,

Bill

Hi Bill -

Thank You so much for your time and help, yes I did change almost everything under the hood, from the brain, the computer, heck you name it I changed it,lol I would have just changed the engine, but know I would still have the trouble cause the engine runs great, I would still have the electronic trouble.

Once again Bill, Thank you for your time and trouble, and I will try to find a forum for old Lincolns. Have a great day.
