We bought a brand new Lincoln LS 2001 4 yrs ago and 4mos ago the check engine light came on, got hook a machine to find out what the problem is they said it needs a complete tune up so we got it service even though we get a complete service once a year but the light is still on infact when we took the car out of the shop the car is hesitating too when it runs it wasn't causing that when we brought it in, and so I had someone look at they said to change the fuel filter and I also put fuel injector cleaner in there to see if it will work it's still hesitating. Before we put the car in the shop we got it read twice before to make sure the diagnostic machine is not always right one is saying there was oil in the fuel injection and the other is saying not, I don't want to keep spending money getting all this done we already spent 3500 dollars just trying to figure things out, so what do you think the problem is.

I have a 2002LS V-8 sports edition that I replaced the brakes and they keep squeaking, any suggestions?
Also I was told yesterday that the front end was loose and it needs steering knucles, they has less than 40K miles on it. Has anyone else had this issue?

I have a 2001 LS and the check engine light is on. for me thats not a big suprise. over the last few months ive put almost three thousand dollars into getting that light to go off. i have gotten to fix a few things that had gone wrong but now my mechanic tells me that the light is for my emissions control. he checked the actual emissions and they are fine but then found out that the emission censoris set too sensitive and it would have to be shipped out of the country to get that fixed. im trying to sell it and i need a quick fix. PLEASE HELP! Anyone.
Joe, go and get yourself a couple bottles of octane booster and your problem will dissapear quickly if you go for a ride on the highway. Be sure you use hi-octane gas always.

Josie, like I said to Joe, get yourself a couple bottles of octane boost and take the car for a highway ride. Always use hi octane gasoline.

my 2001 ls will not start. when i put the key in and turn it, all it does is crank and the theft light flashes rapidly. if it does start the light will flash rapidly 6 times, pauses, flashes once, pauses, then flashes 6 times. it repeats this pattern for about 5 minutes. i feel like a jack ass sitting in my LUXURY car and not having it start.

I have a 2002 LS. In the past 60 days, the front and back passenger doors have failed. By failed I mean that it just will not open. The dealer wanted almost $1000 to fix each door. Since the doors where closed removing the panels was very difficult and added to the cost. Is this random or does anyone else have this issue?

where is the heater bleed valve. The valve used to bleed the air out of the coolant lines. It keeps starting to run hot and blows cold air.

I am having the same problem with my 2002 LS. If I turn the key to the on position and the light starts blinking rapidly, it will not start. I have to pull the key out and put it back in until the light does not blink rapidly - then crank it over. Sometimes takes 5 or 6 times. This problem shows up randomly and is very annoying. I only received one key with the car and it does not appear to be the valet key. Would getting a new set of transponder keys fix this?

I have a 2002 LSE with 57,000 miles on it and the clutch is making a noise each time you depress or let up on it. It's not a squeak, but a click... Any ideas?

Have your dealer check the clock spring actuator in the steering wheel.
