06 Lincoln Town Car will crank but not completely start


Asked by Dec 29, 2015 at 02:53 PM about the 2006 Lincoln Town Car Signature

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 06 Lincoln Town car it was
starting fine needing the occasional jump
(old battery) it will turn over all day but just
will not catch. We replaced the fuel filter,
and the fuel relay in the fuse box under the
hood. The fuel cutt off switch is in the on
pisotion. Can hear the pump trying to
activate when the ignition is in the on
position. What else should i trouble shoot?
My husband read some where if you spray
starter fluid into the intake and it starts its
the fuel pump. We did this it still only turns
over an won't start. What else should we
check? Could it still be the pump even if we
hear it kicking on? Any advice would be
greatly appreciated... I can't even get to

Checking for spark would be next, something that isn't a correct diag or repair in the absence of the proper tools is to unplug, clean and plug back in the crankshaft position sensor just behind the crankshaft pulley. If the crank sensor is leaking oil through the sensor and into the plug it can cause a no start condition.

Thanks Guy! It was the crank position sensor! Appreciate your advice!
