I am thinking of purchasing a 1993 Lincoln Continental. The car is flawless
and only has 40 000 miles. The only issue I have with it is that it has a
3.8. I know that these engines can be problematic as for head gaskets &
transmission. Anything else I should watch for?
Off the top of my head...
The air bag struts and related system(s).
The heater core.
The AC evaporator.
The temperature door blend servo.
The exhaust system.
The timing cover/gasket.
These things are turds.
RUN AWAY from this car unless it is given to you, and you have a reliable
back-up vehicle, and you are willing to junk it with the first inevitable
major repair issue. This car was a prime example of turning an otherwise
awesome basic 3.0L Taurus into a fully-loaded-ready-to-break-down 3.8L
Hopefully you took the advice. This is probably one of the worst if
not THE WORST model car Ford has ever perpetrated upon the world.
This car will nickel (no dollar you) to death. Don't say you were'nt
