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

    Some ignition coils set a PO300 Code,some set many codes that as of no help,sometimes you have to walk new coils from one cylinder to the next,sometimes Mode $06 on professional scan tool software picks up misfires so you see your it was a long learning curve to share this with you. People have spend as much as $2,500 at a dealer with no results when a $59.00 coil would have fix things. Best to do your own work IF you have a V6 & most are ,I have a V8 but the V6 you have to remove the upper intake to do the right side of the motor as I will on my 2014 Nissan Frontier some day

SOURCE: 2000 lincoln ls replaced coils car idles rough now it wont start

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.

SOURCE: 2005 lincoln ls going into etc failsafe mode

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.

03 ls it went into failsafe mode. The code was p2100 throttle actuator circuit open. p2110 I changed all coils an throttle body. Still in failsafe mode an rough idle an nuthing when I press the gas.


Sorry to say, But... This is why you don't let parts stores read the codes and you buy parts replace them them, and they are good. Even garages do this. I do this at home. Your problem could be the APP sensor, the throttle body module, wiring , or the PCM. Find a new shop.

2005 Lincoln LS in Limp Mode. I can start the car and it runs fine for about 10 seconds then goes into "limp mode" How can I reset this?


You have a very bad COP Ignition Coil,that is spiking the PCM (computer)
The spike comes back on the TPS Sensor,then the PCM doesn't see the
throttle signal your foot sent thru, the pedal actuator (gas pedal) ,so it puts the
car into ETC Failsafe,and you can only go 6 mph.

If you got no ETC Failsafe, on the bottom right side of the dash, tell me what you do have
I need all the codes,if you have a MIL Lamp on ( the one that looks like a wrench)
