Could be bad fuel injectors that leak when vehicle is parked for any length of time causing it to flood One very cold morning I again ran my battery down trying to start my Mark VIII. My wife started her SUV and jumped the battery for me. Her advice to me has solved the problem. DO NOT PRESS THE ACCELERATOR. Just turn the key and let the computer control the air fuel mixture. Now it works every time!!!!!
How can I start the engine on a Lincoln town car. I accidently caused the horn to keep blowing and I kept pushing buttons on the remote until it quit blowing. Then the anti theft lights were flashing on the dash and the engine would not start.
Driving through flood water would cause the ignition to fail and stall the engine.
It could have a leaky carburetor or injector that's causing the engine to flood.
Your car's engine most likely got flooded when the water covered your car.
You cant flood a fuel injected vehicle. It would be something else making it not start. It could be a bad fuel pump or spark plugs. Anything to do with the ignition. Distributorless pack, where all the wires plug into. Also hard starting problems are sometimes the result of an improper starting technique on the part of the driver. On a fuel injected engine, DO NOT push or pump the gas pedal when trying to start the engine. This just puts the engine into the Clear Flood mode, which will cut off fuel to the engine temporarily making it even harder to start. Just crank the engine without touching the gas pedal.
if you press the pedal to much that is what can cause the engine to flood
An engine from a LIncoln would not be a direct fit into a Dodge. That would take a lot of modifications.
If water got into the engine, there is a good chance it is ruined, the water would cool the cylinders and pistons causing warping. Same effect could be from the engine cooling off too fast by entering a pond. Chances are if water got into the engine, it is gone!
Too much fuel. Can be caused by many things.
How would i know stop asking !!
no, they made many changes to the engine in 03. It wouldnt match up with the computer and you would have problems
Yes. If the choke plate is sitting in there loose if can close by itself which would flood the engine. Also, without the choke you would have a very lean condition during cold start-up until the engine warms up.
the temp sensor that reads low will cause the engine to run very rich which is fine when it's cold, but will flood it when warm.
The most common problems would be a weak or no spark OR old bad gas.
The year, make, model and engine info would help.
On a 2003 Lincoln LS or Lincoln Town Car : Bank 2 is the drivers side of the engine Sensor 1 would be close to the engine BEFORE the exhaust enters the catalytic converter
"There is a flood."
That engine needs fuel, compression and spark to start and run. You are missing one of those.
NO it should not start but if does I would call it a miracle.
The Boscastle flood started by to much heavy rainfall which got out of hand and would not stop and the river got higher and higher until it flooded the country .
On a Lincoln Navigator : Bank 2 is the drivers side of the engine * sensor 1 would be close to the engine BEFORE the exhaust enters the catalytic converter
The opposite of a flood would be a drought.
I would start with the fuse panel.
