Asked by Mar 22, 2016 at 05:15 PM about the 2000 Lincoln Town Car Signature

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Wife went to start the car it's not clicking but
wanting to turn over but won't. Replaced the
alternator ,  battery. And fuel pump.
Checked all fuses. The old alternator would
start the car when we jumped it first try. As
soon as we replaced it it won't. Fuel is
coming out of the relief valve now. Checked
the fuel shut off in the trunk its down.  
Getting 40psi on fuel pressure. Tried a
different battery that's good. Doing the
same thing.  I drove it the day before it
wouldn't start as well but had to jump it.
This also happened a few weeks ago.  
Please help.

It's likely just the starter is bad and drawing way too many amps. Common issue with Fords.

Well its turning over just not starting.

1st of all the alternators purpose is to only keep the battery charged up, It doesn't start the car. But make sure all the wires are put back on and in the right places. From there it's a process of elimination. Is there spark to the plugs, is fuel getting to the cylinders, Once you know which area is the problem continue process of elimination. Youtube could be a great help to you if you're a diy fix it guy. Good luck. Once figured out post your fix.

So far new alternator, new battery and new fuel pump all working. So must be spark if we ever figure it out well let yas know.
