    While driving car cut off, tried to restart, cranks but won't fire, has gas but no spark, replaced coil, cap, rotor, and key cylinder. Still no spark, Im at a loss, what would cause no spark??? Also checked the gas switch in trunk, its ok.

    you said you replaced every thing except the plug wires, you could have a plug wire grounding out & that's one reason that could keep it from Starting! scratchchin image scratchchin image

    how about the ignition module? not sure what the key cylinder has to do with spark? but with most factory anti theft systems like the gm vat system once the car is running you are in the clear and it shouldn't shut it down.


    Racing is only done on tracks. Anything done on the street is for your ego not for sport.

    disagree on the plug would make 1 cylinder miss, but it should still fire...Im leaning more to a coil ground, or coil wire, or on an electronic ignition, something before the plug wires splt off to each cylinder...possibly a fuse...what kind of car is it?


    My Corvair doesn't leak oil...It just marks its territory!

    What year is the Lincoln? There were a LOT of years where the ignition control module will cause these symptoms. Usually, however, once the module cools down, the car will start immediately. Being that it is a Ford, the module is the first thing to change. They run around $40.00 for a new one.

    Also, make sure the fuel pump is actually pumping enough fuel. I tend to disconnect the fuel line from the outlet of the fuel filter, and measure the volume that comes out. The manual should give you the spec in gallons per minute.

    Good luck. Let us know how it goes.
