2002 LS shaking, engine light on smell fuels

One week ago when I cranked up my car it started to shake and as I was driving a few blocks I could smell that it was overheated and the engine light came on. I pulled up to a gas station, I could see smoke comming from under the hood on passenger side. I called Pepboy and was tolded not to drive it. I got a wrecker to take it to Pepboy and it was put on diagontist machine, I was tolded that it was oxgen sensor and fuel injection. They took care of that plus I asked them to change the oil. Five days later I am having same problems shaking, engine light came on and I can smell fuels now. I didn't drive it so I don't know if it smokes. Pepboy want me to bring it back for another diagonist. I feel they are running games because I am female.

Brother I have the same car. Go trade it in ASAP! The reason your car is doing this, is because there is oil leaking in the spark plug holes from the valve gasket covers. You will not see any oil on the ground and if you ask a regular tech they will say they do not see a problem either. After spending thousands and reading other forums I narrowed down the problem. When the oil works its way down into the sparkplug holes it causes your car to misfire, idle rough, and sometimes die out. There is no way for the oil to escape so it ends up fouling out the plug and ruining the ignition coil which are $85 a piece and there is 8 of them on the V8 engine and 6 on the V6. Also known problems are noisy clunking in the front end. Ball joints go bad and can only be replaced by purchasing the whole control arm. Take the car to a Lincoln dealer and let them tell you what I just told you. Then get the hell out of there because they will screw you with no vaseline. Take it to someone you trust. Happy New Year! 2009

Check engine light flashing and shakiness in car accompanied with burning smell.


The check engine light flashing is a pretty much universal sign that you have a misfire that is bad enough that a lot of raw, unburned fuel is being dumped in to the Catalytic Converter, to the point that it could be ruined if the problem is not taken care of very quickly.

Blinking means that the problem is so bad that it can damage the engine if you drive it. You need to get a code reader from an autoparts store and read the codes to see what the issue is.

Overheat and now wont start what could it be?


Depending on how severely it overheated, it could be that the head gasket is damaged and in need of repair. There are a few different ways of diagnosing the head gasket, the simplest is to crank the engine while you have a helper smell the exhaust pipe looking for either blue smoke (burning oil) or a white smoke and sweet smell (burning coolant). If you have a radiator cap your should remove it and look for oil (signs of blown head gasket) or a brown color in the coolant. Other options are to do a compression check on the engine.

to all those posting about tuscon clutch problems.... seems this is a common prob..! my tucson 55 plate cdx (38k miles) is curently in repair . 1. i started having problems finding 2nd gear, this occured for a few weeks. 2. then i lost most of tension in clutch pedal,.
I got a mate to fit a new master cylynder (1hour work), and that seemed to resolve the problem.... but only for several weeks....! eventually i was unable to find most gears on selection.... the dealership fitted a new slave cylynder today (3.5 hours work) but called me to inform me it still has not resolved the problem and they will now replace the complete clutch system (6.8 hours work) sadly my warranty has just expired...!!
