2002 Lincoln LS Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2002 Lincoln LS

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.


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.

Even though the manufacturer does not call for regular servicing, our technicians recommend servicing the power steering fluid regularly.

I still owe $9000 on this car, anyone want to buy it??? Maybe it's just the 2002's?

valve cover gaskets are guarantee to go bad! thus coil packs will be next to go. repairs are not easy and seem to be one after another. snappy and fast though. rides and handles like a dream with a flashy look. overall i like the car but have pocket book handy cause they seem to be a needy car with more problems than any other luxery sport car, but when the car is problem free, its hard to beat.
