Question about 2003 Lincoln Aviator

Engine check light on, temp high, leaking a fluid

For a while my 2003 Aviator engine check light has been going on and off. The dealer wanted me to bring it in when the light stayed on long enough for them to get me in and get the code(s). Now yesterday I went to warm the truck up, I came back a few minutes later and the temp reading was on high, the code said to check engine tempature and the truck was pouring out a fluid under the truck.

If the fluid pouring out of the bottom of the truck is anti- freeze you may need intake gaskets i just put some on a 2000 expedition that was doing the same thing please do not keep driving the truck dis way cause in a while it will cause more damage to the engine

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.

Hi, I'd like to know which oil I need for engine


Engine oil is a personal preference, brand anyway. You can use any kind of oil you want, all of it is tested and has to conform to the industry standards. The weight of the oil is what is important. Depending on where you live, the temp of the oil is rated in weight, 10 w40 is great multi viscosity oil, for high temp. Up north, straight 30 weight would be ok. Synthetics are ok, some people don't like them, they are old school, they change their oil regularly. If you change you oil every 3000 miles, you should never have a problem with the bottom of your engine.
Your transmission is different. A lot of newer transmissions are sealed to the owner. The dealer wants to get in there, If you don't have a dipstick to check the fluid with, you have to pull the plugs out of the side of the tranny to check it. One is for fill, the other is level. Transmission fluids are numerous, you have to get the right fluid in there. Most say what it is on the dipstick, but if you don't have one, you will have to go by the owner's manual. Transmissions go without fluids for long periods. Most people don't ever check them till something goes wrong. Check it out, hope this helps.

ON MY 03 LINCOLN AVIATOR,WHEN I PRESS THE GAS PEDAL IT BOGS DOWN,NO POWER OR ACCELERATION.


Check for a vacuum hose leak, you know for sure you do if you hear a high-pitched squeal in the engine compartment. There are vacuum lines near the rear of the engine near the firewall. Check them for holes that may have opened up from dry rotting tubes.

2006 Subaru Outback: all of a sudden, the cruis control kicked off, I had a ''check engine'' light, flashing ''sport'' light and flashing cruise light?? When I arrived home, I checked under the hood...oil...


Hello, whenever the check engine light comes on the cruse light will flash as well, that is normal. The check engine light will not come on if fluid levels are low or if the temp is getting to high, I am pleased to know that you checked all of the fluids, most wouldn't have even the slightest thought to even try checking them. The On Board Diagnostics or OBD-2 for short only sets a check engine light when the ECM or Electronic Control Module reads a sensor value either too high or too low, but it has to read that same fault 3 consecutive times in a row to turn on the check engine light (w/ flashing cruise). Otherwise your check engine light would be going on and off all the time. I would go to your local parts store and have them check the codes for free because a dealer will have to charge you labor for them to check due to the knowledge needed to use the highly sophisticated scan tool they use. That way you can go either to an independent shop or a dealer with what the other scanner says is wrong which cuts down on the cost of repairs. They will probably ask you if you fueled up just before the engine light came on, in which that would be code P0440:EVAP leak(very small leak), that means the fuel tank sensor doesn't like how you put the fuel cap on. Subaru recommends AT LEAST 3 clicks when tightening your fuel cap. But until that code is checked you won't know whats wrong, if nothing went boom or bang you'll probably be ok. If it does end up being a fuel cap leak, then just loosen the cap put it back on and just make 1 full revolution, and just keep driving it. The light will go off within 3 full warm up cool down cycles or (drive cycles). I hope this info helps...(subyguru)...

Where are the spark plugs on my 2003 Aviator? I want to replace them.


Look along the Engine head for round plastic pieces with 2 wires going to each. There will be 6 or 8 of these depending on if you have the V6 or V8 engine. You may not be able to see a few of these because of the way the motor is installed. I know on my Escape I have to remove the Air intake to replace the back 3 on my V6. It's a way to force people to go to the dealer to do what would normally be an easy job.

My 2004 lincoln aviator is jerking when I excelerate.


First go to the part store and have them check for codes on the computer. Check spark plug and wires. Hook up a timing light to each spark plug wire and see if the light skips. If so then change coil packs.
