      Did you do any testing before you replaced anything? If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it, while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also check for fuel injector pulse.

      Oil light came because of the oil pressure lose, and its due to engine failure to maintain idle RPM to keep the pressure up. Oil was not showing on your Dip stick because on the highway it was hot and thin now in the morning the oil temp. was cold and thick so when you filled it showed over the mark.
      If it died because of overheating , never fill the coolant while engine is hot it could lead to Thermal crack in Cylinder block. Your engine was shut down by overheating sensor which sensed the high temperature and shut down engine.
      I had the same 1995 Lincoln Town Car in new York City It was giving me lots of trouble So, I sold it very fast and for good price on http://www.classified11.com/ .

    Inconsistent acceleration
    It has about 131000mi. If you start the car it will stay on for a little bit then shut off. It almost sounds like it is choking. If you step on the gas, dark stuff sprays out of the tail pipe. I have had people tell me its the spark plugs or the catalytic convertor. ...

      First step - have the stored fault codes or check engine light scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA. Then, post a reply as 'add answer' with the specific code for more assistance.

      This aspect is important; there may be a fault code stored in the OBD memory which may not be displayed as a check engine light.

      Do not skip this important first step - there are literally hundreds of possible fault codes. Avoid wasting/ throwing money at the problem.

      Possible Causes of Engine Hesitation or Stumble:

      Dirty fuel injectors (cleaning the injectors often fixes this)
      Dirty air filter (change filter)
      Dirty / clogged fuel filter (change filter)
      Bad MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor
      Bad TPS (throttle position) sensor
      Bad or dirty MAF (mass airflow) sensor
      Low fuel pressure (leaky fuel pressure regulator or weak fuel pump)
      Vacuum leaks (intake manifold, vacuum hoses, throttle body, EGR valve)
      Bad gasoline (fuel contaminated with water or too much alcohol)

      Sometimes, what feels like a hesitation is actually ignition misfire rather than lean misfire. The causes of ignition misfire may include:

      Dirty or worn spark plugs
      Bad plug wires
      Weak ignition coil
      Wet plug wires
