Question about 2000 Lincoln LS
I own a 2000 Lincoln LS v8 and the thermostat went out, well my husband fixed that problem and now my car isn't running hot but it acts like it is missing when I am just ideling and sometime when I accelerate to anything less than 45mph.
Most likely what has happened is that when the thermostat went out the engine over heated and the seal of the valve gaskets to the plastic valve covers got warped and you ahve oil the has dumped into the coil pack area and it has caused 1 or more of the coil packs to go bad as solution #1 has explained. get the gaskets replaced, it sounds like your husband is handy. Its not a difficult procedure just a little time consuming. research the coil packs because at the dealership they are very expensive. People have had alot of good luck buying them on ebay.

I had the same miss without the overheat on my 00LS. It so happened the coil packs on the plugs were saturated with oil and ruined the coil packs. The Lincoln garage told me the valve cover pan gaskets were pron to leak after a while and would need replaced. I had the gaskets replaced on one side along with any oil damaged coil packs. I never experienced any miss at high speed, only below 45 mph and acceleration.
Just some actual experience,

Have him to look for vacuum lines they may not be off but they could have a hole in them and also if the car as over 40,000 miles have him to change the drive belt and also put some STP in the gas tank make sure you have at least a half a tank of gas and if this helps with the problem have him change the fuel filter
