Check transmission fluid.and all the electrical connectors.also check shift cable adjustment.by the car being in a wreck.engine and tranny mounts could be damage on impact causing the shift cable adjustment to be off.

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.

My 2000 Lincoln LS keyless remote doesn't work, so I replaced the $15.89 battery and still nothing from what Ive read on this site keyless entry keypad remote code should be in the manual but...


You have to go to a lincoln dealer with your title
& Vin #,they will give you the factory code for the
Keyless Entry on the drivers door

Make sure you have them write down to proceedure
that was in the owners manual ,so you can change it
to what you want.

I have a 2004 LS I don't know if it is the same.
Have no way to scan it & send it to you

2000 Lincoln ls where do you put break fluid in


The brake fluid goes in the brake master cylinder. (Fluid Reservoir)

There are pictures on pages 197 and 198 in the Owner's Manual (depending on which engine you have) they will show you exactly where this reservoir is located.

If you do not have an Owner's Manual, you can download a FREE PDF version: click HERE.

Also note that you should NEVER have to add brake fluid to your car. If the fluid level is low, then there is a leak in the system that MUST be diagnosed and repaired IMMEDIATELY! Failure to immediately repair a fluid leak in a brake hydraulic system can lead to serious personal injury, property damage, or DEATH!

Notice coolant was low, filled and droven about 90 mile and check it again still low, it never ran hot. the were no noticable leaks. I have over 200,000 mile on this lincoln ls 2000. I plan on changing cap...


If everything checks out, have a hydrocarbon test done at coolant fill. Head gaskets like to fail at opposite corners on many of those...There was a "secret" recall on those and previous years but from what I've heard it didn't work as planned and some are still failing.
Hope yours is a simple external leak...pressure test and careful going over should tell you that.

I have a 2002 Lincoln LS. I've owned it for


I have put my lincoln ls in shop 5 times almost once year for over heating.. first 3 times they replaced the fan motor and fan.. worked for few months and went out again in 2 years have had 3 fan motors. Finally over heated again and they said it was radiator.. so for 800.00 they put in new radiator and as wife was driving car home it overheated.. OMG how insane and they would not refund.. so they took car back in and said it was the water pump.. guess what the so called water pump is really a Hydraulic pump.. so they changed it, fan motor, and new radiator..
Now have all this new and one year exactly car is over heating again.... Solution Get rid of the LS or all us complain to lincoln and for this car is a LEMON....

2000 lincoln ls heater not working...thermostat?


- If temp guage reads normal, the lack of heat may be due to the Heater Control Valve. Located in front of the radiator. Lower passenger side. A real bugger to replace.
- The plastic cap just over the thermostat is key in re-filling the anti freeze and bleeding air.

2000 Lincoln ls overheating


There is a hose on the side of the coolant resevoir that has a straight blade screwdriver fitting in it. Open the fitting and this will bleed the heads on the LS. Without opening this you will never get the air out of the head, trust me.
