This means that there was a malfunction in the emission system,ignition system, or transmission. The computer has seen the problem and set a trouble code which would lead you to the system that is causing the concern.Now understand this, it tells you which system malfunctioned it does not tell you exactly what part is bad contrary to popular believe.
Now to retrieve this code you must do this with a scan tool. Some places like auto zone will retrieve them for free. However be aware that their equipment will only retrieve the code and no other information. The reason I mention this is on this vehicle when the light is set the computer records what is called freeze frame data. This is recorded data that tells the technician what conditions your vehicle was operating under when the code set. If your problem is intermittent then this information may be vital to him in diagnosing your vehicle. This information is erased when codes are retrieved.
So my recommendation is to have a technician you know and trust to check your vehicle.

How often to change tranmission fluid on a 2002 lincoln ls


Hi Gary,

There is a small dilema here. The Owner's Manual for your Lincoln says to refer to the Maintenance schedule to find the proper interval for replacing your transmission fluid. Here is where the problem arises: The Maintenance schedule published for your vehicle says to replace the transmission fluid at 30,000 mile intervals for several transmission models. Then it "excepts" the models that are not lsted by transmission model number in the preceeding text - yours is not listed.

Then, when I go to the service manual and search by your vehicle (2000 Lincoln LS) it says to replace the transmission fluid at 30,000 mile intervals without any exceptions.

Here is what I recommend to my customers:

CHECK the fluid every 30,000 miles and REPLACE the fluid and filter every 60,000 miles. I have found that this works for almost every make and model out there. I have several customers with over 300,000 miles on their cars that have never had transmission overhauls.

You have a Fuel Delivery Pump & a second Fuel Transfer Pump
in the fuel tank
The tank is large & under the car ,under the rear seat
Have to remove the exhaust system & drive shaft

The Fuel Pump Relay --is in the Battery Junction Box (BJB) as well
as the Fuel Pump Motor Diode

There also is a (REM) Rear Electronic Module
I recall that has a variable speed pump regulator
or whatever

There are even more players there as well

Very complicated system ,that you have no way to even
start on yourself
Doubtful even a repair shop could do much

I have a 2004 LS and all the Factory Manuals & Wiring
Diagrams. Without them your done

Check fuel pressure at rail on engine Should be about 42 lbs

2000 lincoln ls charging broblem, will start and run with new battery but when battery goes dead, the car wont start, the alternator is brand new what the hell is wrong with this car?


Have you had the system checked to see if altenator is charging? A bad ground connection can cause a no charge or low charge condition.I would take car to parts store and have them test the whole system.

Warning light


That is the check-engine light. It means something has failed and caused a fault code to be stored in the car's computer. Take the car to AutoZone and ask them to do a code scan (it's free) - if you do this at a dealership, they'll charge you an hour's labor. Have them write down the code(s) for you exactly as they appear (such as Pxxxx, where the x's are numbers), and then post the codes up on here as a reply to my message. Then we can start the diagnosis.
