Question about 2002 Lincoln LS
I have a 2002 lincoln ls, my engine light started flashing and then my car started putting, what could this mean?
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.

The mechanic has a machine that can tell you which one is causing it or which ones.....if so just change those for money sake, but you will definetley be doing it every 2 months if you don't change them all at the same time.....misfires are a pain....so when the engine light comes on you need to take action....the machine only helps though if the engine light is on...its like this electrical machine that does a diagnostic....trust me it works...

Bad coils could cause the missfire, or a clogged fuel jet, fuel jet would be a cheaper way to try unless you change the coils yourself, still $50 +/- / cylinder
