If the is misfiring then the check engine light will blink and a code will be set for the fault, so if you have no light you do not have a misfire it has to be something else going on, have you had the fault codes read yet? Do that, any Autozone will read them for free, just ask for a OBD2 fault code test.

Normally check engine lights only come on for major engine or transmission problems
a bit of a miss here and there will record a fault without putting the light on so have the codes read

SOURCE: lincoln ls V8 2003 engine temperture in the middle ?

You shouldn't hear the fan too much while in the car. It won't start to run until certain conditions are meet. Try leaving the A/C Off or put it on Auto and hit the A/C buttom off. I don't know how hot, the ambient air temp is, where you are.
Your not talking HAVC Blower inside are you?
I have a 2004 V8 and the radiator fan is quiet

SOURCE: 00Linc ls v8 .ck eng light on cleaned maf reset comp.48miles later gased up light back on ( don't remember code .ck code at autozone)

You can guess what the problem is and start replacing parts and hope that solves your problem but that is not a sound way to resolve the issue.

If the CE light is on, the car will be throwing up fault codes as you know. So take it to a competent mechanic with a decent scan tool and have it scanned for fault codes. (There are scan tools and then there are scan tools and not all of them will read all the codes present.) Once the fault codes are read a proper diagnosis can be done.

Just beware of those that tell you ABC code = ZZZ part has to be replaced automatically to solve the problem. That may be the case in some instances but it is not a diagnosis but a guess. That is pretty much what you will get from autozone and many others in the business though.

SOURCE: 00Linc ls v8 location of fuel pressure valve need to .ck fuel pressure

I have no experience of your model but the fuel pressure regulator is generally fitted to the fuel rail or in some cases close to the rail. Later cars tend to have the pressure regulator integrated into the fuel rail.
The valve regulates the fuel working pressure and sends surplus fuel into the fuel return line. This helps to cool the injectors and reduce vapour locks. Mostly the regulator also increases the working pressure during acceleration in order to richen the air/fuel mixture and it does this by monitoring the intake manifold depression via a vacuum line.

00linc ls v8 240k miles little Skip off and on at times loosing water can't locate leek . could it be a head gasket going bad oil look OK not milky looking

Leaks are most common at hose connections, within the heater core, the radiator, or at the water pump. The water pump has a drain hole under the shaft that allows water to leak out when the bearing is getting bad. This is supposed to tell you to replace the pump. Unfortunately, many drivers fail to regularly inspect the engine compartment, and even when they do, often the coolant evaporated on the engine block leaving little or no residue to allow for detection. Seepage at hose connections can have the same results. The heater core leaking often runs out the firewall with the condensate from the A/C unit, so it is often missed. If you have no milky oil, then the head gasket isn't blown into the oil gallery. But you can have a head gasket blow directly into the cylinder(s) themselves. This will cause a white smoke from the tailpipe when running. Do not confuse this with the white smoke that comes with a early morning startup. This smoke is due to moisture that builds up in the muffler and is normal, but will stop after a few minutes. If the engine produces white smoke during normal driving under acceleration, then have it checked. You may be able to detect a slight smell of antifreeze from the tailpipe in this condition.

Oil 5/30 00Linc ls v8 can you replace with 5/20

Yes because 5W-20 viscosity is what you should be using in a 2000 Lincoln Ls V8.

Go with an full synthetic but when buying ensure the 5W-20 you buy is Ford approved as there can be 2 or more different formulations manufactured in the same viscosity from the same oil company.

00Linc ls v8 hose connected to side of throttle body from valve cover disconnected at throttle body noticed oil what's wrong

That will be your PCV hose. If there is no valve there it is missing.
Engine will not run properly due to vacuum leak, and crankcase will be venting through valve cover, hence the oil.

2005 Lincoln LS V8. When cruising on highway and/or when cruising and I let up a little on gas the car will buck a little almost like it is shutting off for a split second. I am pretty sure it does it at...

EGR Valve-is where I would start.
Remove and plug the vacuum hoses to it,
road test,problem solved,replaced EGR

After that, expect to loose 1 or 2 COP Ignition Coils a year
Any MIL Lamp on dash,you retrieve the code and go from there
Any PO301 thru PO308 if you have a V8 is a coil misfire
very,very common on the LS and most fords back to 1998
with coil-on-plug

Next clean the throttle plate and MAF Sensor
CRC Throttle Body Cleaner & CRC MAF Sensor Cleaner

Next TPS-throttle position sensor gets tested

I hope you have changed the spark plugs every
three years,regardless of milage,they are a special
NGK Plug just for the LS

Also you have to use premium fuel,sorry in an LS

When you get a coil misfire, the PCM starts to cut
injector timing and you get just what you discribed
