My 1987 Lincoln Town Car will start and run but has recently started not wanting to start after I shut it off.

Asked by Jan 28, 2014 at 02:57 PM about the 1987 Lincoln Town Car Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I can jump start the car but it takes while to turn over and start.  I've had the battery checked (AutoZone says it is fine and fully charged), replaced the alternator and check all the fuses.  What next.

Clean and tighten all battery connections. But honestly with it being a 1987 model it could be your starter going bad.
