These problems can cause by several different reasons,
Engine needs air-fuel and sparks to keep running.
Ignitions and fuel system inspections will be good place to start and if you have any engine warning light on your dash the best thing to get the code read out to get first idea what is causing the problems you have!!

SOURCE: navigator will not start turning over fine

that sounds like it could be a fuel pump. have someone turn on the key but not start the truck while you listen by the tank for a humming sound. IT will only last a second or two. If you dont hear anything then your pump is bad. The filter could be clogged also. before tearing off your gas tank replace the fuel filter, which you would do if you replaced the pump anyway.

remove the cover from your computer under the hood and check all the fuses.

SOURCE: bad heater core on my 2001 lincoln navigator

This is definitely not a job for the at home mechanic. the dash will probably have to come out and this is a very time consuming and laborious task. I would recommend you find a job that you can trust, or get several estimates on the work before you decide who to let do the work. I would expect something like this to run at least $700.00 to $1000.00

SOURCE: 2002 LS: aHow do I fill radiator in my V8 Lincoln LS...

First- to drain ,you can reach the drain valve,from the pass side,if you lay on the ground and reach up to the radiator. You do not even have to raise the vehicle up
Second- mix Yellow GO5 Coolant about 50/50 or 60/40. Do not use Green in a Ford or Orange GM
To Fill- Remove the front two plastic screw type buttons,from the engine cover
-Remove the cover
The radiator cap is on the front of engine,on top,it is plastic
Remove cap and that is your fill point
Run engine to warm and get thermostat open,as you would with any vehicle
Top off coolant,replace cap
VERY IMPORTANT-next to the Power Brake Booster,and just under it,is a BLEEDER HOSE;to let air out of system. Turn screw slot ,only a little,DO NOT REMOVE SCREW. When coolant runs out close.
Fill-Degas Bottle,to full line,with coolant.
Check the next couple days on resevoir level ( Degas Bottle)

I have a 2002 lincoln ls with v8. it starts to sputter then power decreases then cuts off. I can wait a minute then start it right back up and go till it happens again. It only happens in the summer time...

It's possible your crank sensor is going bad. Sometimes they won't light up the engine light. You can drive the car with the diagnostic tool sill hooked up while driving the car and when it dies the computer will show the code. You have to do a drive test.Check the EGR valve also. Hope this helps.

Took my 2006 Navigator for an oil change, came out with timing chains and converters changed. Now it won't run right.. The motor shakes and shuts off randomly. Retimed perfectly now, and won't start! It...

Can't help you

What happened to the shop that did
the work,why can't they resolve

Those issues are from either not changing your
oil enough or failed VVT Cam Actuators,sometimes
the chain guides wear but not on a 2006,too new

Exhaust Converters fail from leaking injector, which
is a know problem on your motor from 2004,05 & 06,
& bad COP Ignition Coils, which causes cylinder misfires
& ruins the converters

All of the issues could have been prevented & all of the
coil are bad by 6 to 7 years & both upstream oxygen
sensors need to be replaced at 100,000 miles

Too bad your not my neighbor,you won't have one problem
The transmission will fail next, from not changing the fluid every
3 years

I happen to know the vehicle & ford/lincoln issues

Exhaust Converters last 14 years & still pass emissions
inspection if your proactive & road test & take a scanner
with you a 2 or three times a year & look at all data parameters
& keep an eye on things

Just to drive any vehicle with todays technology & never look
at data or do preventative maintenance or know what is needed
& stay up to date using the internet every month,your going to
have problems & serious ones at times

My fuse box is makeing a real fast clicking sound on a 2004 lincoln/navigator

Mine was a bad battery, it does not have the power to activate the solenoid switch for the fuse box, that is the fast cliking sound you hear, test your battery,hook it up to another battery or jumper cables.

2006 Lincoln Navigator shakes & no power

Could be coil packs they tend to weak and will misfire

Sep 11, 2017 | 2006 Lincoln Navigator

Lincoln 2002 LS has low power at higher speeds and wants to turn off at idle. Also shakes a little at idle. Could it be miss firing?

The EGR Valve could be an issue

Almost certain you will have 1 or 2 bad cop
ignition coils a year,so misfire ,yes

Could be several other problems

Need the correct spark plugs,they are special
to the LS,anything will fit,but not work right

O2 Sensors have to get changed at 100,000 miles

MAF Sensor Cleaned

V6 or V8

V8 is a lot easier to work on & less issues

Have the shop check out the cooling system. I think the problem is a bad thermostat and the engine is running colder than it should. If you were in the desert that wouldn't be so bad, but the motor still needs to run at it's best operating temp.
