    have someone check to see if your over-flow tank is cracked. It is a common problem with these cars and should have been a recall. I have a 2000 LS and after six weeks of being in the shop with the mechanics saying everything from cracked head to bad thermostat I finally got one to check the over-flow tank. It was cracked and that resulted in air getting in my cooling system and my coolant boiling out. I have had no problems since. Hope this helps.

I have a 2000 licoln ls with the 3.9 v8. the engine all of a sudden lost all power and is now missing with a small rattling noise . what could this ber?

I know many Fords had an issue like this caused by a cam sensor. If not that it could be a valve spring. Has to be something bad enough to drastically effect the running but not drastic enough to keep it from running.

Lincoln LS V8 2003 car engine light on and starts to over heat when starting the car after 10 min it raises higher and getting hot but turn off the car for 10 min and drive again it is fine nothing seems...

Light on means codes are stored. There are well over 800 possible codes so guessing is a waste of time. Overheating could be caused by a radiator fan issue. But keep driving it like that and you'll soon be looking a a MAJOR repair for blown head gaskets. Overheating is #1 cause of gasket problems.

What's your problem?I have a 2000 Lincoln LS that runs great when driving but as soon as I stop and sit a minute it cuts off. I have noticed the car start stalling a little before it cuts off. Cou

Generally speaking, the common reasons for stalling are a faulty idle air control valve or a dirty throttle body.
The computer controls idle speed by how much air is allowed into the intake thru the throttle body.
Those two issues would be checked first.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?

Do you have a MIL -Check Light on? If so, what codes do you have?

Warm it up ,& turn the screw on the end of the hose,just below your Brake Booster. When coolant runs out close it. That is to vent air, out of the coolant system.
Use only Yellow GO5 coolant. 50/50 or 60/40 with water.

Check for more PO 301 to 308 COP Coil codes!

When you do spark plugs,look for valve cover O'Rings, leaking oil onto the plugs,causing a misfire

The fuel door release button does not work. I have to open with the release in the truck. I think it has just detached but do not know how to reattach. Can you help

Open glove box and look in the left top corner and you should see a black valet button. Press this then see if the fuel door release works then.
