Yes!! Aftermarket conversion kits for the older cars with air ride suspensions have become a hot item in recent years because the kits provide a repair solution for vehicles that might otherwise be too expensive to fix. For example, a set of four new OEM air struts and a compressor for a 10-year-old 1994 Lincoln Continental retail for around $3,500. Add in the installation labor, and it adds up to a lot of money to spend on a car that is worth roughly $2,500. The same car could be converted to a regular coil spring suspension for around $500 to $600 in parts, and it would probably be a lifetime repair (no future air leaks, compressor failures or electronic glitches to worry about.) Here is a link to a Monroe kit. http://www.monroe.com/products/mp_detail.asp?cat=Accessories&detail=Conversion%20Kits

How do you fix code p0412 in 1997 Lincoln Continental?

Code PO412 for your Lincoln means that the engine is currently misfiring, could be due to the timing is off, poor fuel, if your running regular in there, stop!, start putting anything higher then 91 octane, so 91 and up, but i wouldn't go past 93, that's what i run in my 01 continental.

Can you use regular gas in a 2001 Lincoln Continental?

Don't see why not. I have used regular for years in my 1998 Continental with no problems. The Continentals, like many modern American vehicles, have automatic spark advance that adjusts to the octane rating in the vehicle. At least that is what my manual says. In any event, works fine. More than likely a 2001 is equally able to make the adjustments.
