Gasoline level can be good but yet the fuel pump is more to be the problem it is not pumping to its full potental or is just not working thats what it sounds like to me.

Ajaj, did you ever get your Lincoln running, I changed the fuel pump and still doesn't want to start!

My 2001 LS cranks for a bit and then fires. No big, but it got worse and began to take long to fire. I replace the fuel pump, and it fires right away. After filling the tank for first time since replacement, it’s back to firing right away. Change fuel pump relay. Next guess is an injector that leaks or bleeds off pressure???
