Question about 2001 Lincoln LS

1 Answer

Check Engine Light

01' Lincoln LS V8, My check engine flashes when I get on the gas, then when I come to a complete stop it goes away. I just changed my O2 sensor before the cat, then cleaned my MAF semsor. I already cleared codes P0174, P0153/4 before my CEL started flashing, I have a K&N air filter (cone). I might have over oiled my filter but I need to know just in case. Thank you

Scan the computer again for codes. driving the car with flashing ck engine lite is damaging the valves and the cat converters. any po300,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 codes indicate that cyl. #misfire. most likely plugs and/or coils. if the po174 is back i would take a look at a possible vacuum leak in engine somewhere. the o2 sensor could have fixed the 153/4 but still could be more

Pull the MAF sensor and give it a cleaning the correct way.Sometimes something shorts those probes(tiny wires and delicate) and your engine will cut a shine on you.
Look up how to clean the MAF sensor if you don't know how. don-ohio

My 2001 Lincoln LS V8 3.9 seems to have a slight miss when in overdrive about 1700 rpm's on an upgrade..you give i. t gas and it bucks and a slight miss. Have changed one coil pack, new spark plugs, new...


When you changed spark plugs did you notice any oil on the insulator or wire plug? Or any oil in the hole that the spark plugs are in? This model of LS were built with gaskets that seem to always fail. Lincoln came out with new gaskets in 2002 or 2003. If there was any oil in the above mentioned places your coils (COP Coil on plug) could be shorting out due to the oil degrading the insulator on the cops.The fix for this is to replace the valve cover gasket set with the upgraded set. Also it's almost impossible to find which coil is bad, and I recommend replacing all eight of the COPS. You can find them online pretty reasonable. I have used these and they seem to perform as good as the Dealer parts, but at a fraction of the cost. This solved the problem on my 2001 LS V8. Also these cars are known to have problems with the timing chains, which could also cause your problem. The adjuster shoes that keep the timing chain tight are plastic and wear out and come loose. Some times causing the engine to jump time and in the worst case could allow the pistons and the valves to come in contact. That will destroy the engine.

2003 lincoln ls sometimes shakes when giving it enough gas to pass a car quickly and also check engine light flashes and goes off after 30 secinds and car stops shaking. Please help.


Misfire from one or more of your cylinders, Have the code scanned. Most likely going to need coil(s) and spark plugs to fix the problem.

2002 lincoln ls v8 is putting.


i just had mine fixed for that very same problem YESTERDAY.....you have several "coils"/sparkplugs that should be replaced....MISFIRE....you should have it put on a machine that will read which one it is....problem targeted. The best thing to do though is change all of them. they break 1 after the other. i replaced 2 within 3 months. Later i decided i didn't want to go have it done once a month, so i bit the bullet and spent the money.....
