Most likely a shorted coil on that cylinder.
The ls is bad about letting oil leak around the spark plug then the oil shorts out the coil.
I have an ls and it is a black hole for repair costs.

Good luck Lincoln Brother

    amen, LS is a financial black hole, and this answer is correct, valve cover gaskets easily fail letting oil get into all 8 cylinders shorting out the coils, 100 bucks a pop from dealer. my quote was 1980.00 to replace all 8 coils and gaskets with labor. i had my relative fix it for 600.00 buy buying parts from autozone. its about half the cost for parts. now the HCU failed and will cost me 1748.00 for part alone. and ford says its obsolete and you cannot get the part. so my car less than a decade old is obsolete.. anyone reading this wanna buy a lincoln?? i own a 97 toyota celica 190,000 miles and all engine parts are stock. it is my third celica. i will never again buy ford or american for that matter. thanks to the internet, we can see all the manufactures defects, which should be recalled, but they will never do that, they will lose money by fixing their own junk cars

No spark on 2002 sentra se-r replaced crankshaft sensor and camshaft sensor.

heres a list, ignition components damp or damaged, worn or faulty spark plugs, broken...loose....or disconnectedwiring in starting circuit, loose distributor changing ignition timing, ignition coil loose...faulty or disconnected wires. its good your cam & crank sensors were changed, but no spark indicates coil packs not able to get spark to plugs, but spark plugs may be fouled, replace them. replace distributor cap & rotor. check fuses, there's one for the ignition switch, check it. try all this see how it does,, also, if you haven't replaced both the AIR & FUEL FILTERS , DO SO !!!!!!!! just for thought, my daughter has a sentra gxe,2002, it started losing power on the highway, we had to have nissan replace it, $900 , you may have to deal with this, sell the car ! when you get it running, if you want. although , after we did repairs, tune-up, timing belt (not chain), etc., it runs like a top, she loves it ! good car if you ask me, just keep filters new, brakes good, it will go forever !

Engine skip

Before it is warms up- the pcm (computer)
controls the injector timing

Once warmed up- it is controlled by the oxygen

If you have not replaced the front or upstream O2
Sensors do that (usually they fail at 100,000 miles-
in your case you have too many years on them)

You do not need to add anything to your fuel,just a waste
of money to add a few oz in many gallons of fuel,won't do
a thing -although Chevron is supposed to be the best, if
you do use any

You may have ignition coils going bad & the place you went to
most likely just installed spark plugs, etc & never road tested
or diagnosed all the data avail to them or anything else

All too common to waste money at these shops now adays

Pretty much have to tell them how to do their job, if you want
things resolved or keep trying to build a better relationship with
a good shop,never go to the chain store places

You going to find after driving 20 miles or more that the ignition
coils break down & do so in no pattern
You can go 2 weeks or have them fail at every traffic light one day
& then nothing for another week
You can drive for 200 miles at 65 & then pull off the highway & it
shuts down,two days later the problem is back
Always bad individual ignition coils on a ford

I have a 1993 Pontiac benneville ssei. It starts runs fine, after it warms up it will pop am stutter at highway speeds when I kick the gas down to pass. I have replaced the fuel pump and it still does...

Work your way through spark plugs, ignition coil, fuel injectors. If all these look fine then it is likely electrical. When you check the spark plugs if they are blackened then this also points towards fuel injectors also.

Car warms up then dies

Your ignition coil could be the problem. Old coils will begin to expand more with heat causing them to fail. Once they cool down, they condense and work again.

Car suddenly loosin power

It sounds like your ignition source is going out. Typically when coils get older they begin to stop working when they get warmer. You drive the car, it warms up the old coil, you start getting less and less power. The car sits a while, the coil cools, and it begins to work for a while longer.

Engine codes P0354 P0351 engine skips low power

These codes are for a malfunctioning ignition coil/s.
P0351= ignition coil A primary/secondary circuit malfunction.
P0354= ignition coil D primary/secondary circuit malfunction.
visually check the coil packs for burn marks, damage, loose wire connectors, and the wire harness to each of the coils for damage. How long has this been happening? Has any work been done recently? Did the engine compartment recently get wet?

I have an on-going problem with my 92 accord not starting, and turning off while Im driving and then not starting back up right away waiting sometimes about 2 hours. It is a manual 5sp. It seems to happen...

The main relay is bad. This is located on the driver side above the fuse panel. What happens is the temerature warms up and the soldier seperates. You can either replace this or re-soldier it. The part number is RZ-0088, you can get a new one on ebay. You will need a 10mm socket to get it out, it is behind the cruise control module.
