Question about 2004 Lincoln LS
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
