1992 Lincoln Continental STRUCTURE:FRAME AND MEMBERS NHTSA Campaign #98V323000
Summary: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles originally sold or currently registered in Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West virgnia, and Wisconsin. The rear lower subframe mount plate nut can experience stress corrosion cracking if subjected to long term exposure to road salts. This can result in fracture and loss of the structural integrity of the subframe mount attachment. Detachment of the body mounts at the rear corners of the subframe, which supports the engine and transmission, allows the rear corners of the subframe to drop.
Consequence: If both rear corners drop, steering would become suddenly very difficult, affecting vehicle control and increasing the risk of a crash.
Actions: Dealers will install subframe rear mount bolts, reinforcement plates, and plate nuts. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #98V323000 »

Water can accumulate within the speed control cable conduit. If enough water accumulates, it could freeze within a low area of the cable routing when exposed to a long term cold soak at temperatures at least several degrees below freezing.
Consequence: Driver control of vehicle speed using the speed control system or the accelerator control system would be diminished increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
Actions: Dealers will add a boot to the speed control cable. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #97V025000 »
