Overheating problem (2002 Lincoln ls V8 ) After i got my oil change and had new spark plugs put in i started to get an overheating problem. I put in a new thermostat and had pep boys check my cooling system and they didn't find anything wrong but I still have the overheating problem but only at city speeds (25 mph) after like 30-40 minutes of driving . what can it be?

SOURCE: lincoln ls overheating

Cheap try is new radiator cap. If it cant pressurize the system the boil temp lowers considerably. If put new cap on and still over heat could have bad head gasket or a blockage in radiator...Cap is common and 10.00 to fix....

Where is spark plug located on lincoln ls 3.0eng 2002



The spark plugs in the v6 can become an involved job as the upper intake manifold. The LS uses a Coil on Plug (COP) ignition system, meaning that the spark plugs are located under the ignition coil

I have a 2002 Lincoln LS that up to 3000 rpm seems to run fine. at 3000, it starts to shudder and miss. any ideas/


Yea , take it to a qualified repair shop that has a scan tool that can show misfire data . That's the best way . What engine ? 3.0 L or 3.9 L . Both have COP - coil on plug ignition system . I have replaced a bunch of these coil's an spark plugs . The spark plug get so worn the spark can't jump the gap an fries the coil and if it goes like that long enough it will short out the driver (transistor) in the PCM engine computer . The last one i worked on cost the owner over 2 grand. New computer , programming , new coils , plugs , plus my labor .

better check your oil and make sure yu arent getting water in it first. is it running rough at all? 2 things come to mind-an air lock which should cause it to overheat or a bad head gasket causing the air bubbles

Lincoln 2002 LS has low power at higher speeds and wants to turn off at idle. Also shakes a little at idle. Could it be miss firing?


The EGR Valve could be an issue

Almost certain you will have 1 or 2 bad cop
ignition coils a year,so misfire ,yes

Could be several other problems

Need the correct spark plugs,they are special
to the LS,anything will fit,but not work right

My 2001 Lincoln LS V8 3.9 seems to have a slight miss when in overdrive about 1700 rpm's on an upgrade..you give i. t gas and it bucks and a slight miss. Have changed one coil pack, new spark plugs, new...


When you changed spark plugs did you notice any oil on the insulator or wire plug? Or any oil in the hole that the spark plugs are in? This model of LS were built with gaskets that seem to always fail. Lincoln came out with new gaskets in 2002 or 2003. If there was any oil in the above mentioned places your coils (COP Coil on plug) could be shorting out due to the oil degrading the insulator on the cops.The fix for this is to replace the valve cover gasket set with the upgraded set. Also it's almost impossible to find which coil is bad, and I recommend replacing all eight of the COPS. You can find them online pretty reasonable. I have used these and they seem to perform as good as the Dealer parts, but at a fraction of the cost. This solved the problem on my 2001 LS V8. Also these cars are known to have problems with the timing chains, which could also cause your problem. The adjuster shoes that keep the timing chain tight are plastic and wear out and come loose. Some times causing the engine to jump time and in the worst case could allow the pistons and the valves to come in contact. That will destroy the engine.

Do you have a MIL -Check Light on? If so, what codes do you have?

Warm it up ,& turn the screw on the end of the hose,just below your Brake Booster. When coolant runs out close it. That is to vent air, out of the coolant system.
Use only Yellow GO5 coolant. 50/50 or 60/40 with water.

Check for more PO 301 to 308 COP Coil codes!

When you do spark plugs,look for valve cover O'Rings, leaking oil onto the plugs,causing a misfire

2002 lincoln ls engine light


These cars are famous for leaky seals where the valve cover interfaces with the cylinder head, at the spark plug journals. They fill with oil, short the coils and cause a misfire. Driving it any significant distance can destroy your catalytic converters ad unburnt fuel ignites therein, creating inferno-like conditions and a fire hazard too. You'll get a "300 code", such as 301 if cylinder 1 is misfiring, 302 for # 2, etc. Pull the coil off the spark plug for that cylinder and if it is moist at all, that's your issue. Have new seals put in, or you'll just keep blowing coils at $50 a whack.
