I have a 2004 Lincoln LS with the 3.0 engine,bought used a couple of years ago,lost power,the hose that goes to the PVC valve broke at clamp in front,found a new hose from Ebay for 50 bucks,I fixed it.The guy that I bought it from had someone put new spark plugs in and they didn't put hose back on right and the valve cover gasket wasn't put on right which makes it leak oil now,plus the radiator is leaking at top on the left,so now I have to add anti freeze often till I can fix it,that's a common problem with our Lincolns.Open your hood,at the top right by windshield is your antifreeze over flow container,check,it's probably out,I use ZEREX G-O5 from Advance Auto parts.Open hood and look for antifreeze around and you will find the leak,mine is to the left side,down a little,but toward top of radiator.

Very common problem is about a dime size hole wearing in the rubber elbow on the PCV valve located on the driver side rear of the intake manifold.

You need a new Pressure Control Solenoid Body. 9L2Z7G391A -solenoid pack for a 5R55S Trans. $332.20. at Trans Parts supplier. Don't even call a Lincoln Dealer for a price. They wouldn't even deal with me because I have a sales tax ID, and ask too many question. They will screw you over big time. That's a common problem in a long list of LS issues, my wife has one also and I used to have a Trans Repair Shop. It will slam into Reverse cold, Slip or flair on 3 to 4 Shift. Also expect the EGR Valve to go bad and make the trans issue even harder to troubleshoot, untill it works correctly. Drop the tran pan, remove about 7 screws and change the solenoid body. Best bet, go to a trans shop, never a dealer. Also get the old fluid out of there and put Mecon V in ,with a bottle of Red Lubgard Additive.

SOURCE: Just purchased 2000 lincoln ls v6 and half way

I would take it straight back to the dealer and demand they fix it or give you full refund!

SOURCE: 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.

My fuse keeps blowing on the fuelpump of a Lincoln ls 2001 do I need a new fuel pump


Probably. The fuel pump is really easy to do on an LS. Just remove the rear seat and make sure to keep spark or heat sources away. DO THE FUEL FILTER too. don-ohio

Gas smell coming from my tail pipes


There are some safeguards which diagnose rich fuel conditions. If you have a hybrid which has a start-stop feature, this may be a reason for the smell.

Have someone check underneath the car for fuel line leaks just in case. If the system is running rich, a warning will appear. Sometimes old gas will make the exhaust smell stronger and if you used the E85 there will be more odor.

2001 lincoln ls engine coolant piping


To find coolant leaks use a radiator pressure tester as leaks sometimes appear to be from a point but in fact are from somewhere else. As to the smoke check the condition of the drive belt and the tension of the belt.

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.
