Hello All
I have a 2003 3.9 V8. I noticed I had a headlight out the other day so I checked the bulbs and noticed I also had the opposite highbeam out. After replacing the bulbs, they still don't turn on. Now my dash lights go out, and my power steering is not working. This happens very rendom, but is getting more and more often. When I get in the car and start it up if the power sterring is working so is all the lights if not then none of them work. Also sometimes the headlights begin to work while I am driving, but not the dash or the power steering......any thought???

ruff idle runs fine when driving but idles ruff everytime i stop or im parked and everyone i take it to acts like they never seen it b4 and the dealer say that the mechine cant find the problem but want to charge me more money so they might can tell me whats wrong and not only that its runs worst then when i took it to them can somebody with some sense please help me [email protected]
coil packs are probably bad---- if it runs good under acceleration but idles rough at stop and in gear---then replace spark plugs (use the NGK plus) and its really best if you replace all 8 coil packs.if you go to amazon.com you will find the set of 8 for 125.00

I have a 2001 Lincoln LS that occationally won't start. I have had it at the mechanic's for over a week and he can't figure out the problem. The car starts for him every time. The car has 35,000 miles on it. Any suggestions would be appreciated
Did you figure this out. I have the same problem, it will occasionally not start. Now it just wont start. My passenger doors will not open electronically, and when they do open the car starts.

I have a 2005 LS the check engine light is always on and occasionally it kinda random some days its more than once some days it doesnt do it at all. but the little wrench comes on and it jus goes into an idol mode.. I have to stop the car turn it off and then when I turn it back on it runs just fine.. but i noticed it seems to do it on hills or slight inclines more than on flat terrain. When it rains it also seems to act a little differently.. Its nerve wracking bc i drive an hour and a half to work and i don't know when its going to do it.. Then temp guage seems to stay in the middle but the guy who changed my oil the other day said the engine was really hot!! ANy ideas on what this could be.. Its sad bc i love this car but cant afford to fix this whatever it may be=(

open trunk dis-connect battery,it may re-set soft codes/probably not hard codes.make sure you are able to drive car 10-15 min before attempting this.see if that cures your problem/conflicting codes that cause it to go into limp mode causing you to stop and re-set

probably need to start with the fuel pressure regulator,you will need a pressure guage for this,IS IT HARD TO START AFTER IT SETS FOR A FEW HOURS? if so you can bet this would be the place to start.usally this issue does not happen all at once--it has warning sighns then gets worse--hope this helps

Hey there.. my 01 lincoln Ls for the second or third time now has unexpectedly shut completly down with total power loss while driving , moslty on the highway. i 'd pull over then start it right back up and take off like nothing even happend, only seems to do it when i hit about 70mph and accelerate faster, also having problems with it being slugish around 50mph and it feeling like transmission problems, or slipage , and im led to believe all the problems im experiencing is all caused by the same thing. which from what code i detected by the diagnose test i used it said - ignition control misfire.. no details on it yet whats actually causing it to misfire or what. besides the cylnders and the rubber boot around the sparkplugs what else could be causing this to happen ... please tell me what you think about this issue ...
I know its three years old but it will still help others. My 01 v6 lincoln ls had the same issues before we bought it. They fixed it, we had it for about 4 months before it started back. I then took it back for them to tell me basiclly that it was my problem. After me and ol lady playing good customer, bad customer, of course me being pretty ticked off I was the bad customer. They agreed to fix it on the house, after one day and what would have been $1400 bill they said it was the intake leaking and it shorted out all six coil on plugs. Going by what you said its the same thing hope this helps someone.

I just bought a 01 lincoln ls v8 and i've had nothing but problems wit it. The check engine light stays on,shortly after i noticed the first time i took it to the dealership and they figured it was the injectors. The car still gives me the same initial problem,which is 1.doesn't crank on the first try and 2.idles a lot in gear w/ my foot on the brakes. Just all around fustrated.

My 2001 transmission warning comes on. My mechanic says that it is reporting error codes 734, 735, and 795.
Since the warning came on, it seems not to get into 4th and 5th gear.
Any ideas?
I have a 2000 ls and mine was doing same thing It was also showing and E instead of D5 It was a spring in between 3rd and 4th gear. They replaced it and my transmission is fine..

In front of the engine on the pass side about middle. It will be the black plastic unit with 4 or more heater hoses on it.

I have a 2003 Lincoln ls 3.0,the car is jerking when taking off at about 10mph and when I come to a stop the car accelerates before stopping. I just had the trans rebuilt, new fuel pump, new fuel regulator, fuel filter, tps sensor, maf sensor, tune up. I dont know what else to do to this car.
