Question about 2000 Lincoln LS

V-8 / Low Power / Doesn't shift correctly

I have a 2000 Lincoln LS that is currently be serviced by a local independent car repair person but he's having problems fixing a power with the engine producing low power and the transmission is not shifting correctly (stalling or missing 1st or 2nd gear).  The car had it's transmission replaced for a used one 3 years ago after that transmission failed.  The car had coil problems in the past and 6 and 8 were replaced.  We have replaced 3 more coils, but the plug only and not the spring.  So 2 coils were completely replaced, 3 plugs only were replaced, and 3 were not replaced.  Sparks plugs were replaced along with a new battery.  We believe the low power is the the reason it's not shifting correctly.  Is the problem simply all of the springs and plugs for all of the coils need to be replaced?  What about the shifting problem?

    Recently replaced four of the eight coils and plugs. The current problem with the truck is nothing like the issues the coil was giving

Has your tech checked this vehicle for an exhaust restriction? He can check this with a vacuum pressure guage at the DPFE sensor hoses.You should have 1psi or less at idle and 3 to 4 psi at wide open throttle.Anything else would be a restriction.
Are you getting any trouble codes with this?

When you operate the brakes, does the brake light come on?
If not, then check and/or replace your brake switch (located towards the top of the brake pedal).

If your brake light works, then check the gear shift lock solenoid operation. Check for power to the solenoid, when the brake pedal is depressed and check the solenoid movement. Replace if necessary.

Sounds like an Ignition Module or similar device. Does it have an alarm? Turn the key to ON - not start - and put into Drive and then back into Park. It may be the shifter isn't fully engaged. Also, w/your FOOT ON THE BRAKE shift to Neutral and try to start it.

2000 Lincoln ls where do you put break fluid in


The brake fluid goes in the brake master cylinder. (Fluid Reservoir)

There are pictures on pages 197 and 198 in the Owner's Manual (depending on which engine you have) they will show you exactly where this reservoir is located.

If you do not have an Owner's Manual, you can download a FREE PDF version: click HERE.

Also note that you should NEVER have to add brake fluid to your car. If the fluid level is low, then there is a leak in the system that MUST be diagnosed and repaired IMMEDIATELY! Failure to immediately repair a fluid leak in a brake hydraulic system can lead to serious personal injury, property damage, or DEATH!

Have a local repair shop check to see if cylinder gases are entering the cooling system. Test cost is around $40. It may be a bad head gasket which is expensive to replace.

No brake lights


Dear Madam or Sir,

the cause of your concern is a defective brake pedal switch. Of course the correct operation of this switch is responsable to activate the brake lights but it also activates an interlock mechanism in the shift column, so you cannot put the lever out of P position without stepping on the brake pedal. This is meant as protective system to prevent the car from moving accidently.

Kind regards from Germany

2003 Lincoln LS V8, Won't turn over after errors


Forget the four coils. That is a common problem,but I would question 4 failing.
The ABS ,Parking Brake,Speedo Etc,where nothing to worry about,you were loosing power, when it went to fail safe,so they came up.

ETC -is Electronic Throttle Control, your problem? Maybe
You will need to have a scanner put on it's,daignostic connector under the dash,to check for codes. Them only a trained technician can follow a chart or test proceedure to properly repair.
I have a 2004 LS,one of Ford most high tech and complicated vehicles.
Conclusion: only a professional can repair you car.
I would start with a local shop. If money you have money to throw away,go to a dealer.
Most likely have to wave to it on a flat bed carrier. Don't flat tow it.
