If a 1996 Lincoln Continental 1 and 6 cylinders are not firing correctly even after the wires have been replaced what would you look at next?

Have a compression test done and check for vacuum leaks. Don't throw pares at it hoping to fix it. TAke it to a good mechanic.

NOT FIRING CORRECTLY LEADS ME TO ASSUME NOT INSTALLED CORRECTLY. EASY NO-HASSEL, NO WAY TO MESS THIS UP REMEDY:

1/6 IS ALREADY A PROBLEM, REMOVE #1 PLUG, TURN ENGINE SLOWLY UNTIL YOU HEAR PRESSURE BLOW OUT THE #1 PORT(KEEP YOUR FINGER TIP IN PORT IF HEARING IS NOT GOOD)WHEN PRESSURE COMES OUT, #1 IS @ TDC WHERE IT NEEDS TO BE. CHECK THE CRANK PULLEY/HARMONIC BALANCER TO MAKE SURE "0" AGAIN, "0" IS AT THE TDC MARK...NOW W/O MOVING ANYTHING, LOOK @ THE DIST. ROTOR (INSIDE DIST. CAP), IT WILL POINT TO #1 POSITION WHICH WILL BE THE CLOSEST WIRE TERMINAL. IF THE WIRE FOR #1 IS PLUGGED ONTO #6 SPARK PLUG, THEN REJOICE, PROBLEM SOLVED, NOW CORRECT AS NEEDED...

The window motor on a Lincoln Continental is replaced by removing the door trim, disconnecting the wiring harness to the motor, and unbolting it from the door. A new motor can then be mounted and hooked up.
