We have been frustrated since we bought the car. Every once in awhile (seems random - maybe once a month), it won't start. Absolutley nothing happens - no sound. When we leave it sit for 15 minutes or so it usually starts.
We have had it in to the Ford dealer several times and they have not solved the problem.

Hi Danny,I have a 2004 Lincoln LS, 3.0 haven't had that problem so far,have 125.000 miles on it.Here's a video I found on your sensor,a lot of things are put on our engines that are hard to get to,like the spark plugs. Lincoln ls 2001 V6 3 0 temperature sensors YouTube
The V8 LS does have a history of timing chain tensioners bleeding down and causing a rattle as you describe. Make sure the oil filter you are using has a anti drain back valve. New tensioners are very labor intensive to install. Lincoln has no recalls for this problem hopefully you have some extended warranty to help with the cost of this repair.
I have a 2003 V6 lincolin LS with codes 2107/2110, I've changed everything but the plugs and the cam postion sensors. make sure you use Iridum spark plugs, with the gap at .051. Once I did this and replaced the cam sensors the car runs great no wench light. At 150 miles and 3 days,so far with no problems.It took me about 6 months to get it right. And I don't want anyone to go through what I did. I hope This helps.
