BigJohn2, have you figured out the reason your Lincoln won't start? Mine is having the same exact problem. Jndpezz@comcast.net

Same with mine. Towed to mechanic. Starts every time for him for 3 weeks. I get it back and kids drive it for 2 days and now won't start again. Jostled car on mech's advice in case it's alarm related (cutoff switch?). Mechanic says fuel pump checks good. Gonna try banging on tank with rubber mallet and jack it up and down a time or two tomorrow to simulate tow truck. something intermittent, but I can't keep getting it towed just so mechanic can find nothing wrong. Did anybody ever get a fix for this?
