Possible that you could have put the distributor in 180 degrees out. Bring #1 piston up to top dead center with timing marks together on the harmonic balancer at crankshaft and pull the distributor cap off to see where the rotor is pointing. Should be pointing to #1 plug wire on cap.

    Do some research before you answer There is no distributor on a Lincoln L/S

    My apologies for my incorrect answer to your problem. I am completely incorrect. I was thinking of earlier vehicles and had forgotten there's no distributor. I do wish you the best of luck.

    Teddy B, no offense taken Bro. You had every right to step in with your know how/experience. I screwed up and will be the first to admit it. I did not research and was thinking of something else and should not have answered. Thanks for straighting me out.

P0171 & P0174 are lean codes.this can be cause by a vacuum leak. One of the symptoms is a ruff idle when cold.

You can listen for it or you can have it smoke checked by a shop. Most common causes are intake plenum gaskets and rotted PVC hoses.

I bought a 2000 lincoln ls about a month ago and after we bought it, it started having an over heating problem. Since then, we put new fan, new t-stat, new coils and valves, new radiator cap, new belts,...

I believe you have a head gasket or cylinder head problem (cracked head or blown head gasket).. If it is the gasket, the intake and cylinder head must be removed and a new gasket installed.. If it is the head itself, in addition to what have just said, you will have to have the head repaired or get a reconditoned or new one. This is a major repair.

2004 Linclon LS went to start it wont start makes a winding noise sounds likes its not catching

Sounds like the gear on the starter is not sliding forward on the shaft to engage the ring gear so what you are hearing is the starter motor spinning free. So absent any other clue I would suspect the starter needs to be replaced.

1 Answer

My 03 Lincoln LS started idling rough only in the mornings when first started. Rest of the day it starts and runs smooth.

Sounds like it might be leaking intake manifold gaskets. They leak when cold but as the engine warms up they swell and seal up. This is common with rubber intake manifold gaskets.

Our 2001 lincoln ls was running fine, then all of a sudden now it wont start. we have replaced the battery, and everything else turns on, it is just hard to turn the key and it wont start--and it was all...

I would love to answer this question but I am having the same issue. I have a 2000 LS with the V8..replaced the battery about 2 weeks ago and last night I went to go home and it won't start. All the bells ring when I turn the key but when I turn to the right to "start" position, nothing. No clicking, no noise at all. I called the Lincoln dealership and we went over the alarm light "not flashing" and shifter position. They have no advice other than "tow it in".
The vehicle had been running fine.
