Question about 2001 Lincoln LS

3 Answers

Throttle linkage bushings worn out caused linkage to disconect.

On our 2000 Lincoln LS with 3.9 V8 the plastic bushings in the linkage between the accelerator cable bell crank and the throttle body bell crank have disintegrated and caused the linkage to come loose. The dealer says they are not available by them selves and only come with a new throttle body for $400 dollars. Kind of expensive for a couple of plastic bushings. Any one know where to get these or have another solution?

I had the same thing happen to my 2001. I Got a good stiff close hanger (metal) and made my own clasp. It cost me nothing and It's been working for over two years now. Take that Ford! $400 to fix it Ford, give me a break!!!

I found from another website that you can purchase this Ford part # which is the same exact bushing.
Ford Part Number: F5RZ-9F955-AB
I installed two of them, and it's working now.

Also, when talking to the Ford parts department, they said that the 2003 Lincoln LS shows the same part # above.

You might try a Salvage yard and see if you can get a used one. There are also Salvage yards online and nationwide that way. Part could be shipped to your door.
The second choice for me has been a Tractor dealership. They routinely replace bushings, make stainless hoses to fit equipment and readily improvise to make things work. I get custom made hoses and linkages for my boats and Farm equipment. Most of their basic supplies are still American made.
Please let us know what you found to work.

My 2001 lincoln ls v8 has a delay wheel turn likewhen you turn your wheel sharp the steereing wheel gets loose feeling and the wheel dont turn as good as it suppose to be any ideas what it might be?

Front steering / suspension is only as good as its weakest link. There are many components working together that can be problematic here is a list of liikely culprits & things to check, tried to put easy stuff first:

  • tire pressures
  • steering fluid
  • worn/loose steering rack
  • tie rod ends
  • column u-joints
  • suspension - struts, joints, bushes components & integrity

After car is accelerating to speed the rpms will not come down to idle after decelatering

It was not clear that the engine returned to idle. Lift the hood and manually move the throttle linkage and check for binding or maybe a possible broken spring on the throttle linkage.
