Question about 2000 Lincoln LS

My 2000 Lincoln LS sputters when accelerating. It does this until I get on a straightway. I usually have to take my foot off the accelerator and start over with the transmission. What could be causing this?

EGR Valve--bad
Most likely, you have at least one bad, COP Ignition coil,missing.

Any time you even lightly touch the gas pedal ,you load the engine,that points to egr.
You remove the egr vacuum hoses,plug them and test drive, up a hill.
Problem goes away,change valve. Get that out of the way before working on coils.

Buy CRC MAF Cleaner-- follow instructions,spray Sensor. In ducting after air filter and before thottle body.

I have you have spark plugs that have no more than 50 to 60,000 miles on them or not more than three years use. If not,get them changed.

Make sure air filter is clean and gas filter is no more than 3 years also. It is behind left front inner fender,plastic shield.

Change your trans fluid (Mercon V ) If you go more than a couple years or 30,000 miles--Also Power Steering Fluid--(Mercon) not V
Brake fluid every year or two

Flow valve in the transmission is sticking most likely.this is usually caused by some other failure creating metal particals that should not be in the system.Good luck!

I have a 2000 Lincoln ls smells like rotten eggs. What could it b?

This is usually caused by the catalytic converter on the front of your exhaust system usually when its new and when you put your foot flat down on the accelerator. If you have this smell constantly, change your usual fuel supplier, or add an additive when you put fuel in it, quality of fuel also has an affect.

2004 Lincoln LS won't accelerate at 60mph, dies

Why would a dealer not be able to find the issue?
Start by checking codes.
If you have to, drive with a scanner,not a code reader on it,to capture data.
If it only has issues when turning the steering wheel and is speed related with the turning, you have a place to start.
I assume the dealer did all that.
I have a 2004 V8,so let me know, what help you need.

2000 V6 Lincoln LS

Problem solved. Recently we put newer tires on the rear which are a lower profile than the front. Don't ask. The point is, aside from the typical oil leaking into the plugs problem, the problem was caused by the rear wheels spinning faster than the front once at the higher speed. Traction control turns off the fuel injection. All is fine now that the front and rear are switched.
