Question about 2000 Lincoln LS
Posted by Anonymous on
Pretty much the case. The brake pedal lever switch often gets hit by the drivers feet and could be knocked out of place. Your brake lights would not be working very consistently, but remember that as your brakes wear, the pedal gets lower. So if something changed with the brakes, the activation spot might have changed and the brake pedal switch needs adjusting.
Once that switch is working properly, the console switch needs attention.

THERE IS A SOLENOID THAT ALLOWS YOU TO SHIFT OUT OF PARK IF IT GETS IT'S SIGNAL FROM THE BRAKE LITE SWITCH. THIS SOLENOID IS IN THE CONSOLE NEAR THE SHIFTER AND CAN BE HEARD ACTUATING IF YOU PUT YOUR EAR TO THE CONSOLE AND HIT THE BRAKES WITH THE KEY ON. IT WILL CAUSE A BLOCKING DEVICE TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY AND ALLOW SHIFTING. THIS ABSURD DEVICE IS REQUIRED ON ALL CARS BECAUSE MANY THOUSANDS OF IDIOTS PUT THEIR CARS IN GEAR AT A HIGH IDLE WITHOUT THE BRAKES ON AND PLOWED THRU THEIR GARAGE WALLS. THESE DOLTS THEN SUED THE MANUFACTURERS AND COST EVERYONE MORE THAN THERE BOGUS CLAIM WAS WORTH. THEREFORE THIS INSIPID DEVICE WAS IMPLEMENTED

Most likely what has happened is that when the thermostat went out the engine over heated and the seal of the valve gaskets to the plastic valve covers got warped and you ahve oil the has dumped into the coil pack area and it has caused 1 or more of the coil packs to go bad as solution #1 has explained. get the gaskets replaced, it sounds like your husband is handy. Its not a difficult procedure just a little time consuming. research the coil packs because at the dealership they are very expensive. People have had alot of good luck buying them on ebay.

First- to drain ,you can reach the drain valve,from the pass side,if you lay on the ground and reach up to the radiator. You do not even have to raise the vehicle up
Second- mix Yellow GO5 Coolant about 50/50 or 60/40. Do not use Green in a Ford or Orange GM
To Fill- Remove the front two plastic screw type buttons,from the engine cover
-Remove the cover
The radiator cap is on the front of engine,on top,it is plastic
Remove cap and that is your fill point
Run engine to warm and get thermostat open,as you would with any vehicle
Top off coolant,replace cap
VERY IMPORTANT-next to the Power Brake Booster,and just under it,is a BLEEDER HOSE;to let air out of system. Turn screw slot ,only a little,DO NOT REMOVE SCREW. When coolant runs out close.
Fill-Degas Bottle,to full line,with coolant.
Check the next couple days on resevoir level ( Degas Bottle)

Your best ,to cut the old belt,to remove.
You can use a long handle 1/2" drive ratchet, on the belt tensioner.
The only pic is in the shop manual.
Wear long sleeves and arm protector sleeves on top. the fan housing is sharp and a tight fit. You will be there a couple hours.
Draw a picture before you start, and you won't need a diagram
