1979 Lincoln Mark V

Asked by Nov 13, 2014 at 11:27 PM about the 1979 Lincoln Continental

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car has been sitting for 5 weeks and yesterday i went to start it. The car turns over
and the gas is getting to the engine. Last summer i did a complete tune up with a new
starter, solenoid, and plugs and wires. I also had the cap and rotor replaced. What could
be the issue?

Ignition modules on these old Ford products are always suspect especially if they are the blue grommet type, you can tell by looking at the module where the wires are attached, there will be a blue plastic collar around the wiring.

Unplug the ignition coil, put a test light between the 2 connectors and crank the engine, the light should flash, if it doesn't replace the ignition module, if it does then replace the ignition coil.
