I have a 2004 and all the service manuals. I have never worked on this type engine,although I have been at it for 45 years,some professional,when I owned a shop. That said, I will try to answer a specific question, if I can find it for you. Short of you buying all the manuals I have or mailing you mine.

I'am looking at the Workshop Manual-it has three locations on the 3.9L, two on disassembly and one on installation. Nice pictures,and necessary stuff,but near useless. Several hundred dollars for these. Got to have them,but not helping you or anyone else.

It looks like you need to have a tool to lock the flywheel in place. eg. one of the holes the CKP Sensors scans. It's called an ignition pulse wheel. One hole is special. Turn crank 45 degrees ATDC,the crank keyway will be at 6 o'clock,install tool
Also,a tool to hold the flats on the cams, to the top
If you don't have the cam sprockets and chain on.from your head service shop,more tools.
Then you have several locking pins,like dowel pins to hold everything,while you struggle with the chain tensioners,again ,more pins

That's a start.

My 2000 linclon ls 6 cly cranks but sounds terriable just started doing it


I hope it's not the timing chain tensioner,Chris. I know the 2000 V8 engines had bad tensioners.
Could it be a loose starter or the starter drive is hanging up in the flywheel teeth?
Could it be a really bad DRIVE BELT TENSIONER or the idler pulley gone bad?
It's just difficult to say,but I hope it's not the TIMING CHAIN TENSIONERS. Lot of miles on it? don-ohio (:^)

Pcv 2004 lincoln ls v8 where


For the Lincoln LS V8, there is a flexable tube on the drivers side of the engine that runs from the valve cover/crankcase to the air intake tube. There isnt a PCV valve for this engine, it is just a tube for ventilation.

Will a broken timing chain on a 2000 Lincoln ls mess up the motor


Yes, normally what happen is it throw out the valve timing. That is, one or two piston could be effected here with its related intake and exhaust valves. What could happen, broken piston tops, bent valves or broken valves.


Since, the 2000 Lincoln has a 4.6 litre V8 engine it will double over head cams. This mean each side of the engine on this V8 has it own camshaft. Also, Ford could have installed a cam brake, that is if the timing is lost, it will stop all valves in both heads to a close position. I hope so, some 4 cylinder have this option.



If the engine doesn't have a camshaft brake then major overhaul. It would be easier to buy an rebuilt factory engine to install. A good engine remanufacture that rebuild engine for Ford, Chevy, Dodge, and other auto manufactures would be you best bet. In other words, they rebuild those engines the way Ford wants them to be rebuilt. Best of luck. GB...stewbison

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
