Could be miss firing or have lack of compression. EGR valve may be clogged.

bad coil has to cool down to start over again the coil sounds to be goin out.


I went and changed the ignition coil But i had no luck


Our Lincoln Mark VIIs need air, fire, and fuel. If you replaced the fuel pump and did not retain the original fuel pump sock (intake filter), then you're most likely sucking air and can no longer let the fuel tank get anywhere below 1/4 tank (with a properly functioning fuel level indicator). Add a MINIMUM of five gallons of fresh fuel to your tank. Let us know the result.
