Question about 2004 Lincoln Aviator

Open Question

2004 Aviator misfire

44K miles engine has ran perfect. Today on the freeway all of a sudden hesitation between 55-70mph. Then hesitation spread to 25-40mph in town stop and go and is getting worse the entire time driving. Idle seams normal, very smooth with no miss fire sounds at all. Wide open throttle has bad hesitation/miss fire feel as transmission kicks down but then clears up and produces good strong full power. Normal driving the hesitation/miss fire is continuously getting worse.

Hi, a Town Car engine that idles to low can cause the engine to die when decelerating or misfire during acceleration. Sensors, a vacuum leak or throttle problems can cause this low idle problem in the Town Car.

One of the most common causes of idle in the Lincoln Town Car is carbon buildup in the throttle. This carbon causes the Town Car engine to idle lower than normal because vapors from the crankcase enter into the engine system and into the intake system, which eventually goes to the air box. Soot is carried in these vapors and onto the throttle plate causing the throttle to not open and close properly. Correction for this throttle problem is to clean the throttle plate with a cleaning solvent.

The Lincoln Town Car has several sensors that can cause the engine to idle too low, creating a stall during deceleration. Speed sensor, throttle position sensor and MAP sensor failure can all be culprits. The computer on the Town Car uses the speed sensor to determine what speed the Lincoln is running. When the speed sensor fails, the computer does not know how fast the automobile is going, causing the Town Car to idle too low during deceleration The MAP sensor determines the intake mixture of fuel that goes into the injectors. When this sensor fails, the engine may idle erratically. The throttle position sensor tells the computer when the throttle is opened or closed. When the computer does not know if the throttle is closed, the computer compensates and allows the engine to idle too low.

Lastly, vacuum leak can cause the Lincoln Town Car engine to idle too high or too low. The larger the vacuum leak, the higher the engine idles in the Town Car. A small vacuum leak is difficult to detect and there are several hoses on the Lincoln engine. The Town Car owner needs to check every hose on the engine, but when the engine is idling too low, the intake manifold hoses generally have a small leak preventing the hose to maintain a compete vacuum. The Town Car needs to be taken into the dealership and placed on the diagnostic computer in order to determine which hose is leaking. Once the hose is identified as causing the vacuum leak, then the hose needs to be repaired or replaced.

SOURCE: 1997 Lincoln town car acceleration problem..

Hey Bill, To answer your question about injectors, without a scanner capable of performing a injector balance test its very difficult to narrow down a clogging injector, you could however get a injection cleaning done at the shop of your choice, or even try a fuel additive to pour into fuel tank, however based upon the work you already have done, and the drive-ability your experiencing I would say you have a bad upstream O2 sensor. Bank 2 should be passenger side next to exhaust manifold. If you have access to a scanner you could check the O2 switching, however, I think that's your problem. Fuel pressure would cause both banks lean, vac leaks would really affect idle, and a ignition problem would usually set a misfire code. One thing you could try however which i have had success with is cleaning your mass air flow sensor, auto part store stock it, very easy to perform, i have had luck with it in the past, if dirty it can throw fuel trims out of spec. If you need any thing else let me know, and make sure you let engine cool for a period of time before touching any exhaust areas.

The small wires on the altenator could be broken. The insulation will still be intact. Try to stretch the wires but dont pull them out of the connector. If one stretches, the wire inside is broken. Splice it and it should fix it. It supplies the feul pump when the engine is running. If it is fractured, then not enough power goes to the pump. If no wires are bad, try replacing the air intake sensor. It is right by the mass air and is round with two wires and just pulls out.

YEA, REPLACE EGR VALVE, ALSO, REPLACE AIR & FUEL FILTER, OXYGEN SENSOR SHOULD ALSO BE REPLACED !!!!! DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR CODES ARE @ THIS TIME, BUT TAKE TO A AUTOPARTS STORE, THEY CAN PULL THEM & LET YOU KNOW ! MISFIRE MAY BE YOUR KNOCK SENSOR, ACTING LIKE A MISFIRE . EGR VALVE IS KNOWN TO GET CLOGGED UP, SEVERELY ! MAP SENSOR MAY BE ACTING UP ALSO, ALL SENSORS WORK TOGETHER, IF ONE STARTS GOING BAD THE OTHERS TRY TO ALONG WITH THE COMPUTER TRY TO COMPENSATE, YOU ONLY NOTICED IT AFTER FREEWAY, BECAUSE @ HIGHER THROTTLE, IT WILL NOT SHOW UP, THE TRUTH CAME OUT WHEN YOU GOT OFF THE FREEWAY ! VERY CONDISENDING , ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU THOUGHT YOU WHERE HELPING TO BLOW OUT THE ENGINE TO RUN BETTER,. YOU SHOOK SOMETHING LOOSE. BETTER AFTER FREEWAY, THEN ON IT.

Have 2005 lincoln aviator - has miss at 30-55 MPH - no codes replaced all coils ( ford) & spark plugs (twice) - repair vacuum leak at PCV Still misses -- no codes -- help


The COPS (coils) may have shorted the drivers in the PCM (computer). You should get a misfire code for each cylinder misfiring though.

Slim possibility, but very expensive unless you have a service contract.
LINCOLN: 1999-2004 Navigator
2002-2003 Blackwood
2003-2005 Aviator MERCURY: 2003-2004 Marauder
ISSUE: Some 1999-2004 Navigator, 2002-2003 Blackwood, 2003-2005 Aviator, 2003-2004 Marauder and 2003-2004 Mustang vehicles built before 12/19/2004 equipped with 4.6L 4V/5.4 4V engine may exhibit a runs rough, lacks power, and engine misfire, prompted by a MIL light and DTC codes P0301, P0302, P0303, P0304, P0305, P0306, P0307, P0308, and P0316.
ACTION: Diagnose engine for engine misfire concern. If diagnostics determine an engine misfire which is characterized by leakage through exhaust valve(s), only replace the affected cylinder head(s).
SERVICE PROCEDURE FOR VEHICLES WITH RUNS ROUGH/MISFIRE CONDITION:
  1. Perform relative compression check on all cylinders. If abnormal, check cylinder leakage and actual compression for "low" cylinders refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 303-00.
  2. If leakage/compression check indicates a valve train concern, per valve train diagnostics in WSM, Section 303-00, replace cylinder head and cam assembly, pipe plugs and timing chain tensioner, per procedure outlined in WSM, Section 303-01.
  3. If cylinder leakage and compression tests are inconclusive, perform misfire diagnostic, per TSB 05-22-8. NOTE: DO NOT TRANSFER SPARK PLUGS. INSTALL NEW SPARK PLUGS IN REPLACEMENT CYLINDER HEAD AND CAM ASSEMBLY. NOTE: THE ENGINE MISFIRE CONCERN IS TYPICALLY EXHIBITED ON THE LEFT HAND CYLINDER HEAD AND RARELY ON THE RIGHT HAND CYLINDER HEAD. UNLESS CONFIRMED, THE RIGHT HAND CYLINDER HEAD SHOULD NOT BE REPLACED AS AN "EXTRA MEASURE" SERVICE PRECAUTION. NOTE: THE REPLACEMENT CYLINDER HEAD WILL NOT IMPROVE OR REDUCE ENGINE HORSEPOWER OR TORQUE ABOVE ADVERTISED LEVELS.

Engine missfire at 40 to 50 miles per hour


If you have recently replaced spark plugs, one could be misfiring. Most newer engines are designed to run hotter, thus the need for double platinum spark plugs are needed.
