Question about 2005 Lincoln LS
Please help all suggestions appreciated
Replace the spark plugs every 3 years
HAVE TO USE OEM-- NGK -- Plugs (Rock Auto.Com
or NGK web site)
I said OEM Tip Config,NOT ford parts,they
were NGK off the assy line. The ford ones are the
WRONG tip,those folks don't care!
Replace ALL the COP Ignition Coils
The coils are your ONLY Problem
I know because I have a 2004 L/S & ten years diagnostic
experience with them, with professional tools
You only have 2 Fail Safes
one for overheating & one that says ETC
Don't even try to figure out the obd codes or the etc thing
Take too long to explain
The dealers can't fix that car,the coils when they get really
bad spike the drivers in the pcm & you loose tps signal & go into
etc failsafe & can only go 6 mph
There is no factory manual that tells you that & your etc on a
wiring diagram is the app or gas pedal,but on the obd codes it
is the throttle body P2100 codes that point to the motor or
tacm,& that is not the problem
So the answer is-- no one likes or understands that car, nor can they
fix one,so replace all the coils yourself,they only last 6 to 7 years
Only need on 7mm socket & get the coils from RockAuto,Com
I use Wells Coils
The front Oxygen Sensors have to be replaced at 100,000 miles
Better be changing that Tran Fluid on ALL your vehicle every 2 or 3
year or they WILL FAIL I guarantee it & power steering fluid also

I would take it to someone with an obd tester and see what codes they pull.
Is a check engine light on?
Who replaced the two coils and did they use genuine Lincoln Parts?
You can open up a whole new can of worms using some types of aftermarket coils.
These cars have tons of electronics in them and some aftermarket coils don't mesh well with the original electronics causing other electrical anomalies.
Let me know how it goes,

id clean the throttle body before spending more money on anything else, as carbon build up can cause rough idling.
you can clean it with throttle body cleaner, or just gasoline and a toothbrush, then wipe off the build up.

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.

Very common problem is about a dime size hole wearing in the rubber elbow on the PCV valve located on the driver side rear of the intake manifold.
