Customer Question
1999 Lincoln Towncar, 4.6...

1999 Lincoln Towncar, 4.6 engine. Fuel gage will not go to E after engine is turned off, otherwise seems to work fine. Goes to F after fill up and gradually goes down as gas is used. Fuel pump has been checked for pressure and shows to pump normally. Car would not start one time and would not fire at all but has started fine ever since.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever replaced the fuel pump, or is this the original?

Original, with 100,000 miles on car.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '99 Lincoln?

Town Car

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Town Car yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, I am not a mechanic. It was checked to see if it was pumping properly.
