I'm having the very same problem with mine and have been told it's the catalytic converter that needs to be replaced. Apparently it becomes clogged and the oxygen can't flow through properly. I hope this will at least give you a lead of some sort. Another thing that was mentioned that I am looking into now is a 'map' sensor???? Good luck!!

Your 2000 Lincoln continental keeps jerking?

Not sure if its the same design, but on my 1998 Continental the jerking was caused originally by a few of the individual coils going out. These are found on my vehicle right on the plug that attaches to the spark plug. That is, one sits right on top of each plug. Replacing these (about $65 each as I recall) was pretty simple. Of course, later on a similar jerking occurred which turned out to be the transmission. Ford replaced it. Hopefully, your problem stems only from the mini-ignition coils.

Replacing motor mounts on Mitsubishi lancer?

I just replaced my back engine mounts on my 2003 mitsh. lancer. It cost me $214 at a Mitsubishi dealership in Queens, NY. Unfortunately, I had to go to the dealership because no other auto store or shop had the parts. My engine & car was jumping/jerking whenever the car was in reverse or drive. Scary. After I got the back mounts on (because there's two - front and back). Now I have a stuttering/jerking problem but based on diagnostic test it's my coils that have to be replaced.. oh boy :)

Radiator fan in a'92 Plymouth Sundance doesn't come on. Fan runs when connected to the battery and you changed the fan sensor What next?

Run the A/C all the time until you get it fixed. It will run anytime the A/C is on. It has to be a defective thermal switch, or defective wiring, for the fan if the fan itself is good. I had the same problem and it was a simple $11 relay switch that solved the problem
