Having problems with your 2000 Lincoln Town Car ?
Check Engine light came on for the 2000 Lincoln Town Car. It turns out the EVAP System, regarding or referring to the Fuel Line.
There are many trouble codes associated with a malfunction in this system, (about 10) in order to help u i will need u to get the car tested and post the particular code for the evap system. Many times the code is for a small leak which means in most cases a loose or defective gas cap, but that is by no means always true, I am a Ford dealer tech and know this 1st hand.
Evap refers to evaporative fuel system which is basically the vent system for the fuel tank. It consists of various solenoids, valves cannister & hoses as well as the gas cap itself. The only truly effective way to diagnose the system is to use a smoke machine to fill the system w/smoke and carefully inspect for leaks. The test should run approximtaley $60.00 - $100.00 This code will set if you fill your vehicle w/gas with the engine running or if you didnt tighten the gas cap fully so start there first.
