Why is my 2002 Lincoln Continenetal skipping an stalling

I changed the throttle body sensor on my 2002 continental and now its skipping and still cutting off do u think its my ECM
Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
Hi there. If the throttle position sensor was not installed correctly then this will occur. I usually use my scan tool to monitor the readings from the sensor. It sounds like you may have an issue also with the air flow sensor or with the idle control motor so those would have to be tested also.

How to Identify and Fix Common car Problems ?

The most common reasons a Lincoln Town Car engine stalling are the fuel system, the air intake system, or the ignition system. Search our network of RepairPal Certified shops near you to speak with a technician about your issue.
Common causes of intermittent stalling may include a bad idle speed control (ISC) system, low fuel pressure, loss of ignition, vacuum or EGR leaks, or other problems we`ll get to later in this article.
The main cause of engine stall at high temperature is rapid fuel boiling by increasing fuel temperature. This causes a lot of vapor. Such vapor flows into the fuel pump which leading to decrease the pump load and the current consumption of the fuel pump continuously. This ultimately results in engine stall.
The most common reasons a Lincoln Continental won`t start are a dead battery, an alternator problem, or failed starter.
There are three major causes for a stalled engine: A lack of fuel, a lack of air flow and improper ignition. Running out of fuel is one of the most common causes of engine stalling, but dirty fuel injectors or a plugged fuel filter can also be the culprit.
Fuel injector nozzles can become clogged over time, which can lead to a sputtering engine, slow acceleration and the car not having enough power. Fuel injectors can be cleaned if the problem is caught early, but as the conditions worsens, the injectors may have to be replaced.
If the engine stalls while idling or driving, the engine may be running out of fuel or not receiving enough fuel pressure to keep it running. The most likely cause of this kind of stalling would be a fuel pump that is not spinning fast enough or is intermittently cutting out.
Is Your Engine Stalling? Similar to having reduced fuel efficiency, your engine may stall if you have bad gas in your tank. Having bad gas can also mean having diluted gas in your car. This could result in your car not having enough combustible ingredients to continue to run.
If your powertrain control computer is misreading idle speeds, this can cause a high idling malfunction. When your car`s throttle is malfunctioning, this can cause your car to stall or idle high. Often this is a result of dirt buildup in the air intake. Other times it can be a problem with a cracked intake tube.
Performing a System Reset

Press and hold the Seek up and the audio unit Power buttons simultaneously until the screen goes black. Wait for the system reset to complete.

If the car cranks when you turn the key, but the engine won`t start, it could be because fuel isn`t getting to the engine. One potential reason for this could be dirty fuel injectors. Over time, the fuel injector nozzles can become clogged with rust, corrosion or debris.
Some of the signs that may be a preview of engine stalling are hard starting when your engine is hot or cold, a noticeable drop in fuel mileage and lack of power when you try to accelerate.
It could be a dead alternator, a bad coolant sensor or lack of fuel, just to name a few. Is your car stalling while accelerating? If so, then it could be a major vacuum leak, clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump. If your vehicle is stalling when driving, seek professional help to track down and fix the issue.
Automatic transmission vehicles need to manage their level and pressure of transmission fluid when the car is idling. They do this with a component called a torque converter. When this converter fails, your engine will stall.

will a 2002 Lincoln ls wheel bearing and wheel hub and sway bar fit a 2000 Lincoln ls?
ANSWER : The vehicles are only a couple of years apart, the bodes are similar and the engine choices are the same so they probably still share many components. You can do a search for parts between the two vehicles to see if the resulting part numbers match, then you can say for sure that the parts used are the same. For the best results to any repairs, replace the old worn parts with new ones of the proper fit for the correct year, make and model vehicle the parts are being applied to. Consider hiring an experienced technician like one from YourMechanic who can come out and perform these services for you.

Could this cause ur car to stall in warmer weather? My car never stalls during winter months. But from spring on its a neverendin
ANSWER : You should have the check engine light and engine scanned to see if the engine may be running lean due to low fuel pressures or clogged injectors. You should also have the mass airflow sensor cleaned and checked for proper readings and replace if not within specifications. The vehicle runs richer in colder weather and may be the reason for not stalling. You should clean injectors, clean throttle body and idle control valve then clean mass air sensor and relearn idle.

Owner is told car’s stalling is phantom problem
ANSWER : Hey there. You cannot operate a motor vehicle on public roadways if you know for a fact that it stalls unexpectedly. So the first order of business is to STOP driving the car especially given the two frankly lurid examples of near catastrophic crashes that you have described in your question. The second issue is easier: although there are AT LEAST a dozen obvious causes of the symptom you are reporting, and it is laborious to track down each possible "cause," the problem is definitely fixable.

You either have fuel or ignition related component(s), possibly both, that are intermittently cutting out. It might be possible to obtain enough data via your car’s OBD-II DTC interface to diagnose the problem at the time of failure and/or get in the general "area" of the failure. Given the age of the car, one issue to keep in mind is you could have a combination of problems that ultimately cause the stall. To have this problem scoped out, a certified professional from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to inspect the stalling issue and have this corrected.

My radio skips to a different station on it’s own and when I put cds in brand new they skip as well can you tell me what’s wrong a
ANSWER : The issue you are describing with the station skipping is due to an electrical or software fault. You should first check to see if a software patch is available from the VW dealer. The antenna boost and connection can be checked as well because if the signal is not fed to the radio properly, the radio will "scan" for a stronger signal, which could be a different station. If there is no software patch and/or there is no obvious external fault your only recourse is to change the radio. A dealer supplied, re-built radio is about $200. A brand new OEM radio costs roughly $450. Of course, add the labor cost to remove and install. If you desire that the diagnostic steps, and radio replacement if necessary, be carried out by a certified Mechanic, dispatched by YourMechanic right to your location, please request a radio/CD system diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic will get this taken care of for you. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.

Will a ford escape 2002 transmission fit into a ford explorer 2002? (Not 4×4)
ANSWER : No, they are completely different. An Escape is a front wheel drive platform, an Explorer is a rear wheel drive platform. There are two options for a front wheel drive Escape. If your production date is before 11/18/01, and 11/19/01 and after for the 2002 model year. The only other compatible vehicle is the Mazda Tribute. A great resource I use is Car-Part.com. It has interchange information built in, and only displays parts that will work.

Car stalls when merging on the freeway.
ANSWER : Hello there. Quite often multiple symptoms will pop up that might be a possible cause of a mechanical defect or problem. I think this is the case here. If you are leaking oil (as you’ve stated, a lot of oil), then it’s possible that the ECU is detecting an oil pressure problem and triggering a fail-safe in which to protect the motor for damage. It is also possible that these oil leaking issues are not related to your starting and running issue. The best way to resolve this issue is to simplify the diagnosis process and have a professional mechanic complete a car starts then stalls inspection.

My car idles kinda rough, and it stalls when I come to complete stop and stalls when I let it run.
ANSWER : Failures in the charging circuit (alternator, etc.) do not typically cause a rough idle. A faulty throttle position sensor and/or clogged fuel injectors can cause the engine to run roughly but those are just two among many, many potential causes of a rough running engine. What will help you is a rough idle diagnostic during which the individual cylinder firing patterns can be evaluated on a scope. Those firing patterns will allow the mechanic to see if perhaps there is "a" or a couple bad cylinders and also whether the engine is experiencing a fuel system versus ignition system problem and in which cylinders. On an engine with so many miles, 240,000 in your case, compression should be tested in each cylinder as wear in the engine could potentially cause enough imbalance, from cylinder to cylinder, to cause the engine to run roughly. You have to keep in mind that typically there will be multiple issues with an old engine, for example you could have dirty fuel injectors, a sticky EGR valve and fouled plugs due to the inevitable leakage from old valve stem oil seals, or any of a number of other combinations. The best thing to do, to see if you can get additional service life out of the engine, and you likely can, is to methodically and carefully go through the list of possibilities. YourMechanic certified technicians specialize in just that so if you set up a diagnostic, a technician will get to the bottom of this for you and give you repair options so that the engine can be restored to reasonable operating condition.
