    I am having the same problem. We took it to a Ford dealership and they said they didn't work on lincoln's. Ha ha, yet they had the parts to fix it. When we picked it up it is still doing the same thing although we did not change coils. Could that be the problem now?

    I have exactly the same problem on my 2000 Ls V8. Misfires around 40 to 45 mph at 1800 rpm.

    The code was a missfire on Cylinder 7. So I swapped the coil from cyclinder 7 to 6. I ran the car for a week... still missfire and Cylinder 7 was in the error code.

    mine only does it from a stop up to 30 or so. Once it heats up though the problem goes away

I was having the same problem between 40 and 50 as well as the miss fires after changing a coil that was miss firing one it reached running temp. the problem vanished so check your coils.

Are these vehicles both V8's? If so I'd put money on the fact that the valve cover gaskets are leaking and filling up the spark plug holes with oil. Pull the coil covers off each valve cover and pull the COP's out... If they are saturated with oil then the valve cover gaskets need to be replaced along with the saturated coils.

2000 Lincoln LS 3.9 with intermittent misfire problems that is accompanied by a knocking type noise from the transmission bellhousing. Have replaced the Crank shaft sensor, Cam sensor, Cool packs on...

Friend, do a compression check on all cylinders. The one, most likely #3, will show low compression because of a bad valve. This causes the engine to idle rough and once it goes into overdrive the whole vehicle shakes I'm sure. And since you've swapped the injectors around, and it still chows a 303 code, it wasn't #3 injector causing the misfire code. Keep all this in mind friend, this problem is indigenous to all these V6's.

2005 lincoln ls going into etc failsafe mode

I had to replace 4 different coils on my '02 LS before it finally stopped misfiring. After one code and coil replaced it would go to the next one. I had to replace them in this order, 2,3,7,8

When # 7 was misfiring it wouldn't even pull a code all of the time, the check engine light would come on one day then go off the next, really strange.
