This answer was rated:

I have a 2000 Lincoln Continental, won't start, continues to blow #11 fuse, Is there an easy fix to this or should I take the car to the repair shop.

Hello and thank you for using Just Answer

 

this is most commonly a problem with the harness.

 

it has been found to short out near the EGR tube

Paul, can you help me locate the EGR on the 2000 lincoln continental

The EGR tube is runs from the Right exhaust manifold to the EGR valve

 

the right exhaust manifold is near the firewall side of the engine.

 

there is a tube that screws in to the exhaust manifold it will also have 2 small hoses running off the metal tube into a sensor

 

look for the wiring harness in the area of this EGR tube

Thanks Paul, I will see what I can find, hopefully that will fix the problem if not I will take it to a repair shop, I am not very good at working on autos as you can see.

No Problem
