Question about 2001 Lincoln LS

1 Answer

Gas throttle not working. Found loose part that connects pedal to

I parked my 2001 Lincoln LS (V8) outside for about a month. It was running fine. I went to start driving it again and it started fine. I put the car in gear and press the gas pedal and no power. I looked at the pedal and then under the hood. I found a part that was hanging from a part that when pushed gave the car gas and reved up. I noticed a hole in the other part that connects the gas pedal to the engine. I tried to connect the loose part to the throttle cable but it seems that the throttle cable is pushing the wrong way to make the other part give the engine gas. There seems to be some kind of clip that holds the little bar in place to make the two work together. My neighbor gave me something called an E-Clip and said that would hold the bar in place. It looks like the same kind of clip that is on the other side that was holding the bar in place at the other end. No matter how I position the bar to connect the two parts it never seems to work. The two always seem to be pushing against each other. I need a diagram that shows me how the two connect so I get this thing fixed. Can anybody help or telll me where to go to see a diagram on line or just tell me how it is done. Thanks, Bart

    dealt_soul, I tried to do what you said but I couldn't get it to work. Maybe I just don't understand your directions. I'll be the first to admit I'm not a wiz when it comes to cars. The part that was loose is shaped kinda like a C. Am I missing a part that goes to it. I have tried looking all over the internet for a diagram that shows how the linkage is supposed to work to see if I have all the parts. I don't know the proper names for the parts so therfore I don't know how to look the items up.

Turn car off, push the round throttle under the hood all the way open. Route cable on top and put in the hole, release throttle. That should be about it.

2006 Lincoln ls when starting in cold weather, engine shakes, gas pedal won't give it anymore gas,is it normal for gas pedal not giving more gas while warming up?

No not at all , your vehicle has electronic throttle control . There is no cable connecting the gas pedal to the throttle plate. This system is all computer controlled .With all the sensors on the vehicle an the computer you need special tools to diagnose the system . Your best bet is to take it to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer .

2001 Lincoln ls 3.9 v8 a/c not working. power was not coming on the a/c on off panel and not showing outside temp too

Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles are known to have faulty a/c and unfortunately the only fix that will last more than a couple months is replacing the whole a/c system and don't have it done at a ford dealer. To be honest I would recommend either getting used to no a/c or buying a different car.

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.

2004 lincoln ls,v6,no codes,no power when apply the gas pedal.

Did you check fuel pressure? Fuel filter fairly new? Air filter clean and all duct work tight? Battery voltage good when engine is running? Check Throttle Position Sensor for codes and values. Also Ignition coils go bad on these ,as often as you change your socks. TPS is avail on line and auto parts store. You do not have to go to dealer or change entire throttle body, just the sensor,if bad.

You will need a new TPS Sensor,Egr Valve, Ignition Coil or two and a Transmission Solenoid Pack,pretty soon. I have a 2004 V8 L/S. Tough car to troubleshoot and a never ending saga,as is most Fords.
