Question about Lincoln Cars & Trucks
Lincoln ls 2005 shakes while idle also feels like car wants to shut off
Is you "check engine" light on ? If it is you can take it to most of your local auto parts store and have them pull diagnostic trouble codes (DTC's) for free which may help narrow down the cause of it shaking. Not sure exactly what you are saying. Do you seem to have hesitation when pressing down on the gas to move ? As you are driving is there or does there seem to be a "stutter" once in a while like a chug. I say this because Ford products (your engine V6 or V8) have a separate coil for each spark plug that basically sits on top of the engine. Since your vehicle is a little older the coils go out on them because of the heat which causes a misfire which would cause shaking like you described. A misfire code would be in the P0300's area on the list of DTC's. I may be way off base but this is a common thing that happens with this coil on plug system. Hope this information helps....

Very common problem is about a dime size hole wearing in the rubber elbow on the PCV valve located on the driver side rear of the intake manifold.

first thing is the engine light on?
these cars had problems with the on plug ign coils and if this is a misfire the comp will tell you which cyl is the problem.

- If temp guage reads normal, the lack of heat may be due to the Heater Control Valve. Located in front of the radiator. Lower passenger side. A real bugger to replace.
- The plastic cap just over the thermostat is key in re-filling the anti freeze and bleeding air.

Hey i just had this same sounding symptoms with my 2000 ls. It turns out that the ignition coils were failing (2,6,8). Just replace all of them. All of them i got on eBay for 150 bucks when the garage quoted me 1100 bucks. Good luck man.
