Question about 2000 Lincoln LS

Ticking and Idling rough

Car started running rough or rich when idling and also had a ticking noise. My husband replaced 2 coil packs, all the spark plugs and 2 sensors on the manifold but still not fixed. Took to have diagnostic done but when mechanic heard the ticking or knocking sound he thought it might be a rod in the engine and we would need a new engine. Considering they were just going off the noise, is it possible it could be something else?

Ticking usually valve train lifter,push rod or rockers --knocking [ rod knock ] usually bad piston connecting rod --or engine ear down yes a good mechanic can advise from certain noises but will test for exact problem

You do not switch coils

If you have a bad coil, you have to
find out which one & replace it
Am I missing something here?

You replace the spark plugs (all of them)
every 70,000 miles. You use the OEM
NGK proper plug

You clean the MAF Sensor

Replace front 2 O2 Sensors only
at 100,000 miles

You could have EGR issues,vacuum leaks
from any number of places,as well as
EVAP System issues,even without codes

You really need to look at the data with
a professional scan tool,smoke the EVAP
and intake,check fuel pressure

Basically make love to it for a couple of days
Your problem is that not many people like
to work on the LS or most Fords

Replaced plugs and coil pack on 2001 ford taurus now car will not start


You will need to figure out if you have spark to the plugs, and if not- if you have voltage to the coil to proceed.

Car is idling rough all coil packs have been changed along with spark plugs


Dont get another harness. If you are using Autozone supplied coil packs, the problem is most likely the coils from Autozone. I have went through this exact same thing before. I changed the coild because one had a burn mark on the boot between the plug and the coil pack. I noticed it when changing spark plugs. The new coil from Autozone made the vehicle struggle on take offs and idle rough and the vehicle had no power. I installed another coil from Autozone again which was supposedly a better model and costed more. The vehicle ran a little smoother but the rough idle and small misfire was still there. I installed another coil from the dealership and the problem was fixed immediately.
I also replaced one of the coil connectors for a different cylinder but only because i broke it when disconnecting the coil packs to remove the spark plugs.
And when I installed all my coils and the new one from Autozone, I used dielectric grease on all the connectors. But the rough idle and power loss was immediate following installing the new coil from Autozone.
Beware if you are using coils from another part store because many part stores get their parts from the same source.

Running rough, tapping noise, dies when idling


if you are drawing white smoke then its either the inlet manifold gasket failed or a head gasket ,best suggestion i can make is to trade it in quick before you spend lots of cash .this coil pack and additive will not work its drawing water into the pistons from somewhere and requires a complete strip down of the top assembly to cure it ,no amount of wonder cures will help here

ROUGH IDLING CAN BE CAUSE BY MANY THINGS.I AM LOOKING AT LEAKING VACUUM HOSES OR INTAKE MANIFOLD GASKET LEAK.DIRTY FUEL INJECTORS AND WORN ENGINE VALVES WILL CAUSE ROUGH IDLING.ALSO LOW IDLE SPEED CAUSE ENGINE TO RUN ROUGH.

Ticking noise while car is running or idling


maybe is the air compresor and that's the noise that you hearing. Put the air in off if the noise stop, your problem is the compresor.
