2000 lincoln ls will not idle

Car runs great if you stay in the gas. there is no hesitation at all. accelerates normal. I was wondering if it could be an idle solenoid or something. my family is stranded in Georgia.

    We have the identical problem. It began Friday night (12/5/08). Idles very rough but runs normal when driving and/or accelerating. Because of our situation, we have a service dept appointment on Monday. But, I lack confidence in their integrity.

I have had this problem in two diferent cars. on one the firing order of the plug wires was messed up and on the other the timing was off by just a little bit, with both problems the only time it was an issue was at idle.
it may not be what's wrong with yours but you may try checking the firing order diagram and compare it to the car and also try hooking up a timing light to it and make sure the timing is where it needs to be.

2000 Lincoln Ls Stalling While in Motion


Check the water temp sensor. I'm not too familiar with Lincoln, but on GM vehicles a bad water temp sensor will tell the computer that the engine is cold causing it to dump more fuel than it really needs thus flooding the engine. The only way to start the engine is to open the throttle body enough to get the air/fuel ratio right so it will burn. If that doesn't work look at your EGR system to make sure the valve isn't sticking. It should move freely. If it's binding then it can cause similar issues, though not as likely.

What's your problem?I have a 2000 Lincoln LS that runs great when driving but as soon as I stop and sit a minute it cuts off. I have noticed the car start stalling a little before it cuts off. Cou


Generally speaking, the common reasons for stalling are a faulty idle air control valve or a dirty throttle body.
The computer controls idle speed by how much air is allowed into the intake thru the throttle body.
Those two issues would be checked first.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?

2003 Lincoln LS (V6) is running rough @ idle and during initial acceleration to include a knocking noise and hesitation. @ speed car is running normal. This problem began 30 minutes after getting fule...


Bad gas? If it had a little water in it, it should clear up shortly. Might try a bottle or two of HEET-isopropyl alcohol-to remove more water, if any.
If problem persists, I would have that knocking checked out.
Good luck.

You shouldn't hear the fan too much while in the car. It won't start to run until certain conditions are meet. Try leaving the A/C Off or put it on Auto and hit the A/C buttom off. I don't know how hot, the ambient air temp is, where you are.
Your not talking HAVC Blower inside are you?
