Hello, my name is***** will be helping you out! I have over thirteen year of experience in the automotive industry for numerous different makes & models. I enjoy doing what I do, it is my life.

It does sound fuel related, is the check engine light on? Do you have a fuel pressure tester?

Check engine light is now on. Code 304. Cylinder 4 misfire. Could be the cop?
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
I've changed cyl 8 a few months back and that fixed my misfire them, but wasn't a hard start like now
Lincoln Mechanic: Mike, Auto Mechanic replied 9 months ago

I do not believe that cylinder misfire will be related to your issue, what about fuel pressure gauge, do you have one?

Lincoln Mechanic: Mike, Auto Mechanic replied 9 months ago

There is several things I would like to do first, Key on engine off, does the fuel pressure drop at all?

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
