Question about 2000 Lincoln LS

1 Answer

I have 2000 V8 LS thatruns rough in park and at idle in drive.

It runs fine while driving and even if i step on it while driving, bur when trying to rev it in park it sounds like it is flooding out and i cannot get the RPM's up. The guy I bought it from claims it is from a tank of E85 he put in. Any ideas or suggestions? It has over 150k miles

Thanks!

    Ok....That may explain why I cannot rev it up in park, but does not explain why it is running rough in park and when at a stoplight in drive. Any ideas for that?

    I do have a check engine light on. I am planning on going to checker becuase they allow you to use there diagnostic computer for free, but the guy I bought it from (3 days ago) told me he had it in to a mechanic and could not find the problem. Not sure if he was pulling my leg to get the sale or not. Either way, I will get it plugged in and hopefully I can get a cheap fix. He told me that he replaced a coil pak, but I thought I was told there were two on this car. Could that be the problem if there are two coil packs?

That is normal.
If you rev it in park it will not rev over 3500 rpm before it hits the rev limiter.

    Sorry but I didn't see in your original post that it was running rough at idle?

    Are you getting a check engine light? Have you had it scanned for trouble codes? This vehicle's computer system is very sensitive to any problems and will usually set trouble codes for anything the least bit out of sync.
