I have a 2001 lincoln...
I have a 2001 lincoln ls v8. I have been driving it around today to see if anything is wrong with it (It's been sitting for about 3 years) everything was going good until I was driving and it just died as if it ran out of gas, but I have a full tank,the battery is new. Now it'll stay cranked and running for about 20 seconds then cut off.any idea?

No I did not but before this happen I had driven about 50-60 miles. I've also replaced the fuel filter and fuel pump.
Lincoln Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 11 months ago

theres a possibility that you sucked up some crud that on on the bottom of the tank and clogged up the sock on the bottom of the pump and possibly the filter.
