Hey guys, This time i'm not talking about my 2000 taurus, its about this 92 lincoln continental executive i got my hands on for $300.
From what i understand, these cars are similar to the taurus and i have seen some guys talking about them on here if i remember correctly. Its got the 3.8 v6, with 112k, and runs fantasic, you cant even tell its running half the time.
I got it cheap because supposedly the front air struts are shot and other things, but it doesn't seem that way. When i got the car yesterday (used a uhaul car trailer) i started it up, and after a couple minutes the front end shot up (pump was running). i parked it (its in a truck yard) and took the battery out to charge it at home. I came back this afternoon and it was still level, so the air struts don't leak. I popped the battery back in and ran it, and took it for a spin in the yard. after the spin, the front end went down and i put it back in its spot. I turned it off and started it again, and the air pump went on, the front end barely went up at all, the back end is perfect.
I know this is not a bull, but i know someone out there knows something about these cars.
I'm thinking its the solenoids for the struts, or does this car have some sort of level sensor for the front, that tells the computer when to pump air.
