Question about 2003 Lincoln LS
Posted by Anonymous on
PO-133 HO2S Sensor Circuit Slow Response
Before you change an O2 Sensor,clean the MAF Sensor,with CRC MAF Cleaner (auto parts store)
Check the air filter cover and all the intake ducting. You can not have any vacuum leaks.
I would bet that the PCV Hose ,you say was replaced ,is not on correctly,and is sucking in air, and maybe leaning out your O2 readings.
I hope that the intake gasket r&r was done correctly also. I wouldn't rule that out as a leak, also.
The COP Ignition Coils,are not an issue. They fail all the time on all fords from 1998 on,that use that type coil.
Brakes are just standard maintainance. Take them apart,twice a year,clean off rust,smooth out rotor ridges and lube pad ends and mounting bracket slippers.
The wheel bearings should not have failed,nor the pcv hose
It would seem to me,someone is pitching you repairs. Two wheel bearings don't fail.
You need to go to a local shop,if this work was done at a dealer.
Stand INSIDE the service bay,next to your vehicle,and have the person actually going to work on your car,SHOW YOU and PROVE TO YOU,that you have a problem next time.
I have a 2004LS,and there are a shopping list of problems. But not the ones you have.

Tips for a great answer:
The spark plugs in the v6 can become an involved job as the upper intake manifold. The LS uses a Coil on Plug (COP) ignition system, meaning that the spark plugs are located under the ignition coil
