The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem. Special notes on this V8, they do chunk timing chains on a regular basis so it may be the problem here.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

SOURCE: i have a 2000 lincoln

try starting the car with the accelarator all the way to the floor, this will allow more air to enter into the throttle body.

Car is a 2004lincoln ls v8...its misfiring in cylinders..had a tune up didnt help,computer said throttle accelerater stuck closed and sounds like transmission is slipping?????


There is no tune -up for your car

I have the same car ,V8 --- only spark plugs


You have a bad COP Ignition Coil -- give us the code PO301 thru PO308

Change the front (2) O2 Sensors at 100,000 miles

Change spark plugs every 3 years or 60,000 miles

Clean MAF Sensor once or twice a year

If the Trans Slips ---STOP USING IT -- & change the solenoid pressure
control pack, inside trans oil pan

The bad coil is spiking the PCM & the signal comes back on the TPS
Sensor & you get throttle body (TACM) codes,forget that,work on the coils

2000 Lincoln Ls V8 still getting code PO420 after replaceing Cat Conv,changed 02 sensors, still getting code PO420 and now when exiting the freeway the car turns off.... have to put it in park to restart...


Check your MAF sensor readings. ( MASS AIR FLOW ). You probably need to clean out your throttle body. If it's not reading properly, it could def. kill your car. Hope this helps, James Booth. Please rate this. :))

O2 lincoln ls check engine light & fuel gauge went to empty the next day it wouldny start replaced fuel pump & fuel gauge ran fine drove about 40 miles the next day started it up check engine light...


You have two pumps,I guess you know that ,if you already did one. Did you check fuel pressure at the rail and check out the electronic pressure regulator? What codes are coming up and do they stay set?
