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

Misfire cylinder lincoln ls


Misfire is almost always bad spark plug and/or ignition coil. I wouldnt trust an OBDII scanner to correctly diagnose which cylinder is misfiring. Your best bet is to replace the coils in all 8 cylinders (or 6 if its a V6) since when one goes out it makes the others work harder, meaning that they arent far behind

My 2003 Lincoln LS sometimes misfires or bucks while driving.......What's the cause of this?


Most likely 1 bad COP Ignition Coil

You will loose about 1 or 2 a year on an LS

Also your EGR Valve will only last about 5 years

Hopefully you changed the front 2 --O2 Sensors

I RECENTLY THINK I HAD PUT SOME BAD GAS IN MY 2001 LINCOLN LS AND IT STARTED TO MISFIRE SO I DROVE ALL THE GAS OUT REFILLED IT WITH SUPREME AND GAS TREATMENT AND STILL WAS HAVING THE PROBLEM WHEN I REACHED...


Without seeing the car would say to do these things. Check for vacuum leaks on hoses, see that the mass air sensors is hooked up properly. Look for exhaust leaks, there could be air **** in causing the oxygen sensor be thrown off. Look at the oxygen sensors to make sure they're not damaged. Next check the ignition system. If the mis is constant disconnect one sparkplug at a time until you find which cylinder is missing. Switch coil packs to another cylinder to verify this. If the ignition seems OK you might have a bad sensor. Mass air or throttle position sensor. Good luck.

Have a 2001 lincoln ls checked all plugs,fuel


What codes do you get? Is the check light on steady? Did you switch coils to see if code PO 304 & 2 move. What does fuel pressure look like? Are the O2 sensors in tight and have you looked over the entire PCM System with a professional scanner? How were the injectors and coils checked?

These cars are famous for leaky seals where the valve cover interfaces with the cylinder head, at the spark plug journals. They fill with oil, short the coils and cause a misfire. Driving it any significant distance can destroy your catalytic converters ad unburnt fuel ignites therein, creating inferno-like conditions and a fire hazard too. You'll get a "300 code", such as 301 if cylinder 1 is misfiring, 302 for # 2, etc. Pull the coil off the spark plug for that cylinder and if it is moist at all, that's your issue. Have new seals put in, or you'll just keep blowing coils at $50 a whack.
