How do you repair the rear air bag suspension on a 1988 Lincoln Mark VII?

the 88 may be one of the years that after market Taurus struts will fit in with a conversion package to replace the air bag suspension entirely. The alternative is dealer item only, and very very expensive.

I agree. Go to strutmasters.com, Its cheap either way (bags or springs)and you get instructions with any thing you buy. I have put springs all around on My 1989 Mark VII and trust me its easy, while your down there you might want to go ahead and replace struts and shocks.

Are mark 7's the same platform as mustangs of the same years so are mark 7s also known as a fox body?

AnswerYES!!! AnswerThe mark vii's were built on the same platform as the Mustang and 83 to 88 T-bird and Cougar. The last guy whom answered must of had mark vii and mark viii confused. the later was a mn-12 type of car not fox but those years mark viii did share the t-bird cougar platform for those years. Answerthis link is from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedi: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lincoln_Mark#1984_Mark_VII scroll down to the Mark VIIs.

Will the interior of a 1985 Lincoln Mark 7 fit in an 1985 T-Bird?

I think the seats will physically fit, the T-bird probably won't have electrical connections for all the electronic stuff the Mark VII seats have, but I am not sure about the rest of the interior pieces.

You might wanna measure back seat length the 2 cars might have different widths the newer mark 7 (not 8, 7) are wider than fox mustangs and the early tbird is as wide as a mustang. in 87(?) the t-bird got wider and the mark 7 might have been the same width the whole time I'm not sure. if the same width they will bolt in.

How do you adjust the headlights on a 1991 Lincoln Mark 7?

From inside the engine bay, there is a directional aiming screw on the outward edge and one on the lower edge. The lights should NOT be adjusted without the lamp aiming tool.

Any haynes manual will tell you the easy steps on this. Its something like being 25 feet from a wall and turning the adjustment screws. Autozone has these manuals for like $20

How do you reset the air bag light on a 1990 Lincoln Mark VII?

Lincoln Mark VII Safety Air Bags need to be serviced by a professinal. Do NOT take chances with this. In the trunk left side ahead of the spare tire make sure the switch is turned on if it is and light is on you have an issue with one or more of the airsprings.

ha ha ha there you go again with the air springs! well i agree, if you are talking about air bag as in in the steering wheel etc, sure have it looked at by a pro, if your talking about air springs, and air ride issues, don't nessicarily listen to this guy, keep researching and you will figure out your air ride problem, any questions ask me, cllass@alloymail.com

If you have an "Airbag" light on on the instrument cluster where the speed o is it needs to be scanned by a pro... It probably was at one time in an accident and the bag deployed, they replaced the bag and didn't have it reset by a pro... It takes a special computer to do this and they usually charge a lot of money... I remember my days working in a body shop and we usually had to have this guy come out if the light stayed on he would charge us $60 and I'm pretty sure the ins co would pay us about $75? Now if it is the "Check Air Ride Suspension" light on the overhead cons it needs to be scanned also to see where to look for problems?

A 1987 Lincoln Mark VII ran out of gas and now won't start possibly air locked How do you bleed the fuel value and re-prime the fuel system?

Answerfirst cycle the key on and off a few times, these cars have a "return" style fuel system and cycling the key will repededly turn the fuel pump on and send fuel to the injectors if it still won't start try:

Shoot a little starting fluid into the air intake and try to start it. Sometimes it just takes a little extra to get the fuel to flow.

ADDED 04-25-06 by Guycaron: Also, consider the possibility that residue at the bottom of your fuel tank has clogged the fuel filter.

or the fuel strainer on the in tank pump, or burnt the pump out, but i know when my mark ran out of gas it took almost 3 gallons to get it back going

Radio

How do you remove the radio on a 1990 Lincoln Mark 7 LSC?

Answer

YOU'LL NEED TO BUY A RADIO REMOVAL TOO. THAT'S JUST A SKINNY U-SHAPED ROD YOU INSERT INTO THE TWO HOLES ON EACH SIDE OF THE RADIO. IT COST BETWEEN 3 AND 5 DOLLARS AT ANY PARTS STORE. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO PULL THE RADIO RIGHT OUT. IF IT DOESN'T COME LOOSE RIGHT AWAY YOU'LL HAVE TO USE SOME MORE FORCE. THERE'S THIS PLASTIC PART ON THE BACK THE HOLDS THE RADIO IN PLACE AND IT SLIDES ALONG ON A TRACK OVER THE RADIO. SO THAT MIGHT SIT A LITTLE TIGHT. I HAD TO PULL MINE OUT QUIET HARD AND WIGGLE IT A LITTLE TOO. AND WHEN YOU PUT IN A NEW RADIO YOU'LL HAVE TO ATTACH THE PLASTIC PIECE TO THE NEW RADIO WHICH IS NO BIG DEAL. GOOD LUCK THOMAS

make your own tool out of a coat hanger bend 2 in u shape so they fit in eack side of radio holes push in till you feel a bit of resistance and pull with both u shape tools wiggle back and forth the clips will release letting radio come out 1 inch then pull with hands until you can disconnect wiring harness and antennea

How do you troubleshoot passenger door and window not operating suddenly?

First of all check fuses. It is unclear what you mean by door not operating. As far as the window, it is typically the drive gear that falls apart. I have replace 4 of them (both on two separate LSCs). It is not terribly difficult, but it is a little tricky. The door panel has to be removed and if never done before, it will require two holes to be drilled to access the mounting bolts for the window motor. If you are still game for the mission let me know by another post on this question. TKG

Thermostats
Lincoln Mark VII

Thermostat location on 1997 Lincoln Mark vIII?

Answer

On 1998, 4.6 32 valve engines, the thermostat is located in the radiator to block hose. if you look directly under the power steering reservoir you should see it.

The thermostat has 3 hoses running from it. 2 are approx. 1.5" in dia. and one is approx .750" in dia. The .750" hose leads up to the coolant reservoir. and yes it is under the power steering reservoir. Access to the thermostat is from the bottom side. You will need an 8mm socket to remove the two bolts. Removal of the bottom radiator hose is mandatory.

Does the 1991 LSC Special Edition come with factory headers if so would after market headers provide any benefit?

lsc coupes are very well designed. placing "aftermarket" headers doesn't really do much but cost you money. these cars are very fast as is, think... it was after all based on the ford gt mustang engine and tranny. performance wise, as a mark 7 owner i wouldn't change anything.

LOL performance wise?...I think you mean "economically"

AnswerIn specific, yes, the vehicle did come with factory headers as well as true dual exhaust. AnswerOK...So Im assuming that by headers you mean aftermarket...all cars have "headers" aka exhaust manifolds. Changing the exhaust manifolds is a GREAT idea to add extra horsepower and torque to your Mark. One of the weakest links on the 5.0 motor is the exhaust. The factory exhaust manifolds on the 5.0 are tiny little tubes of metal that choke your motor from breathing. If youre thinking of doing ANY kind of horsepower adding upgrades, don't start anywhere else but with new exhaust and intake components (upper and lower). 1 5/8" headers are ideal. Equal or unequal length are good, longtubes are the best but require some extensive work for the average do-it yourselfer. In my opinion start with a good catback system (mufflers, H-pipe, etc.) before you go getting involved with new headers. Just think of your motor as needing to breathe easier to make more power. The 5.0 motor is such a dog compared to what it could be...even in a Mustang...trust me, I do this for a living...these guys that posted before me just must not like fast cars =) AnswerI agree with the last post. The headers on the Marks just like the Mustangs are tiny. After market headers as long as they are larger diameter will make a difference. I owned a Mark myself. You should really upgrade the hole system but I know alot of the time people don't have $300 to drop on a new system. Headers would be a good place to start. Down the road you may want to look into getting you exhaust ports matched to the diameter ao the headers as well. They are alot smaller, but I strongly sugguest you have this done by a professional shop.

hell yea after market headers will add power, look at the baby headers that came with the car.

ANSWER

I have a fully worked out 91 LSC special edition black. Leave the stock exhaust headers! They are plenty to push anything that the engine can handle. Get rid of the "4" cats and replace with 2 high flows to keep it legal. Switch to an Ford Explorer intake manifold from the junk yard (will require custom hood work to fit underneath) And put in some 1.7 roller rockers. If youre gonna go that far, MSD ignition and high power coil is recommended. I also converted to a stick shift...and i eat mustangs up all the time

How do you remove the airbags on a 1991 Lincoln Mark VII LSC?

The ~safety~ air bag on a 1991 should not be serviced by the vehicle owner. Replacement suspension air bags (springs) come with complete instructions (Arnott, StrutMasters, etc). The seller/manufacturer should gladly provide the buyer with a set even BEFORE purchasing the product. This is in their best interest to show you juyst how easy it is to install their product. If not, I'd move on to the next seller/manufacturer. Jack up your car, get to the air bag, turn the solenoid with vise grips, once the air is out turn the "fat" part at the top to unlock it. its kinda like your power steering cap on your car... it fits into place and turns to lock in. Now at the bottom of your a-arm remove the clip around the little stub that you see. kinda like a cotter pin... But like they said go to strutmasters.com and get some springs!!! 219.00 with shipping included and all instructions also. Hey also visit www.lincolnsonline.com

Why when my Abs brakes get warm on a 86 Mark the the steering wheel shakes?

Sounds like your rotors need to be turned (replaced if necessary). Does the shake happen worse when braking at higher speeds? Id recommend you pull the rotors off and check for variances in thickness with a proper guage, get them turned, and go from there.

AnswerI agree. Sounds like the rotors are warpped.

I've had this problem and it turned out it was a bad caliper Do any of the wheels smoke when you stop ? Do you have a strong smell from any of the wheels? I would check to see if any of the wheels are locked up or rotate harder than should be.

How do you take the transmission out of a 1994 Lincoln Mark VIII?

First you take out the driveshaft, then take out the starter "make sure to unhook the negitve battery cable" then take out the exshaust from the manifolds back. "i found it easy to take this out in 1 piece" Then unhook the shift linkage and electical plugs. use a tranny jack or floor jack with a wood block to slightly take some weight off the tranny, then take out the crossmember. then take off the tourque converter inspection plate. then tale off the four tourque converter bolts. then take out the six engine to tranny bolts and pull her out. On my 93 I had to remove the gas tank. But it wasn't bad, just four bolts lower it down and undo the filler tubes and fuel supply but be carful not to brake the clips on them. And also, there's a u shaped bar and shroud that goes bellow the drive shaft, it goes one way so make sure you put it on right or it while rub.

Are there lowering springs on a Lincoln Mark VII?

there is a coil spring conversion made by Arnott, i have it on my 91 LSC SE and the ride is so much better, i would check out Eibach, Tein, and other spring companies, as well as cross reference parts from a thunderbird/cougar/mustang of the same year range There are ride height adjusters under the front and rear of the car to lower the car all you need to do is adjust these and you can drop it at least a couple inches. only make sure car is supported by jack stands when doing so.
