Question about 2002 Lincoln LS
Well, with the cost of parts, you can no longer "try" an item. The engine light being on means the computer detected something wrong. Your description verifies that. You need to pull the codes and address those issues.
So what can it be, TONS of stuff, but it can also be a vacuum hose fell off and one cylinder is lean and misfiring because of that.
You most likely would NOT have valve problems. Valves go forever, now days. Focus on your issue, and it costs what it costs. The car has little appeal for a new buyer, running as you describe...So probably fix it anyways. Pretty much all cars work this way, now. No guessing, pull the codes.

Check to see if there is water in the drivers side valve cover. Take out one of the COP and see if water has seeped in there. My 2003 V6 had a gap in the rubber seal above the engine. Water would pour down onto the V in the valve cover, eventually seeping into the plugs. Cleaned all this out, built a simple diverter to keep water from pouring in there and it runs fine. I just recently got a P0430 code which I attribute to driving for a bit when it was running poorly.
