Having problems with your 1997 Lincoln Town Car ?
At idle the engine keeps speeding up and slowing down. car runs smoothly at speed, but periodically when waiting for a light ,the engine may begin to surge at irregular speeds and may quit. Turn the key, and It starts up instantly.
Hi! I believe that you have a faulty MAF (mass air flow) sensor. I used to work on one and replaced it, everything got back to normal. The MAF has great contribution on engine performance specially on the idling and acceleration. Have it replaced and you'll be good. Hope this helps and have a good one!
