2001 Lincoln LS Problems
Erratic engine coolant temperature or intermittent overheating can be caused by corrosion inside the water pump. The impeller may spin on the water pump shaft or the impeller may corrode. Either condition reduces coolant circulation resulting in engine overheating.
Very hard shifting may be noted after the transmission reaches operating temperature. Most commonly this occurs in the higher gears and reverse. Replacement of the transmission may be recommended to correct this concern.
In high dust areas, problems with the EGR system are common. The filter for the EGR solenoid may plug and cause the EGR to activate when it should not; this can cause the engine to stall. The dirty filter should be replaced to correct this concern.

Jus bought my 01 Lincoln LS 2 days ago from a lil dealership for 2 grand. And now i am very nervous about it after reading everything. My mechanic is doing it up for cheap for now. Oil change, transmission change, plugs, engine light sensor misfire. And a few other things. But shit! I dont know how i feel about this purchase now!
My Lincoln 2001 LS V-6 started overheating in the summer when it is hot outside. Changed the thermostat, still same prob. Someone said the water pump could have corrosion or maybe air in the lines. I don't have a lot of money to spend for someone to find it. Also, my engine light, airbag light and now recently the light bulb light. There are no reason they should be on. (electrical??)
