Various gremlins in a 2000 ls v8

Hi we just picked up a 2000 ls v8 as a spare care. it is very very clean but has 185k miles on it. this vehicle has all the screwy shifting glitches others have noted but is nice to drive. the problem I have is the smell of coolant when i stop and exit. The temp gauge remains at the half mark and all heating and air work well. No oil in the water or water in the oil as well as no apparent pressure problems as in a head gasket. So if someone could steer me where to look and what to look for I would appreciate it. The car has the drivers window regulator problem. Ebay sell whole replacement units for 120.00 or less. Anyone use other than oem. Have any of you removed the oem air filter monster for a smaller aftermarket one. Will that affect the running, cooling etc. Thanks alot. Oh also the engine light comes on then goes off after a minute or so under hard acceleration. Might that be something to worry about or could it be needing a new air filter. Thanks again

The intakes of these cars crack behind the alternator complete plenum kits are available aftermarket you will notice antifreeze in the valley,the aftermarket regulator is the most cost effective way to go,using an aftermarket air intake is good if you don't get too much rain the oem design stops water also

Will a 2000 lincoln ls rack and pinion fit on a 2004 lincoln ls? Does it matter if it's v6 or v8? I have a 2004 lincoln ls 3.9 liter v8 and need a rack and pinion. Somebody please HELP.

engine size is immaterial when it comes to steering
what matters is body length, mounting positions and methods, tie rod lengths , position of pinion , method f attaching steering shaft
best if you go to a wreckers and view both steering assemblies side by side to check any differences
or you can pull both out and interchange or you can go to a dealer spares and see if the boxes have the same part numbers
or you can ring a steering specialist shop and ask if there is any differences

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.

For free PDF version downloads of both the Owner's Manual and the Maintenance Schedule (3rd printing) for your vehicle, click the links below.

I have a leak problem with my car.

This is an easy repair. Find a time when you will not need to drive the vehicle for 24 hours. Remove the reservoir from the vehicle and give it a thorough cleaning inside and out. Wipe the crack area with alcohol. Purchase a tube of RTV silicone sealer. Read the instructions. Apply the RTV to the crack making sure you fill it completely. Let it set for 24 hours before reinstalling on the vehicle. Leaked repaired!
