2002 Lincoln LS Problems

Engine -- Verified

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.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

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.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

An exhaust leak may develop in front of the catalytic converter. This type of leak should be corrected as soon a possible to avoid damaging the catalytic converter.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

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

Engine -- Verified

Due to age and possible damage during removal, it is recommended to replace  the spark plug boots when replacing the spark plugs,

2002 Lincoln LS Reviews

I have a 2002 Ls Why does the engine ligh turn on? Is it just one thing or can it be a few things?

I'm three months into the car and seems flawless.I got this car for 3K with a 100K on it.It was obviously maintained at a dealership because it shines inside and out.Strong 8 cyl. with big brakes.Wish me luck but it seems like a great car.

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.

I bought my 2002 LS V8 in 2005 with 35,000 miles. At about 45,000 miles the passenger side climate control went hot and would not cool. Dealer replace a water control valve under warranty. 2 years later the same valve had to be replaced because of same problem, I paid $$$$$ to get this done. A year later the A/C-heater temp would not regulate, either extreme hot or extreme cold. Dealer kept it 3 days searching for the problem (not covered in their manuals), found an exterior temp sensor was bad. Dealer found this by swapping parts off of an identical model, expensive. Now the same climate control problem as occurred again. Appears to me that Lincoln has a defective part design but does not want to fix it. Also, now the cruise control has stopped working after doing some crazy things, and the radio controls in the steering column no longer work, a minor inconvenience. Other than that, the car looks great, runs great, great acceleration, will get you out of a tight spot in a hurry. Gas mileage 18 city, 28 hwy at 65 mph.

I bought my 2002 Lincoln Ls 2 years ago and it was one of the biggest financial mistakes I have ever made. It has had problems since the day I drove it off the lot. First it was my coils, then my transmission, now its electrical problems. The only good thing I can say about this car is how good it looks on the inside and out and the fact it has a pretty smooth ride but other then that its a piece of crap. It has horrible gas mileage about 15-17 mpg city and about 20 mpg highway for the V6 version.I purchased an extended warranty through the dealer for 2,000.00 and it gave me 24 months and the guy told me it was bumber to bumber but guess what.... IT WASN'T. First time I called the warranty company they said they dont even offer a bumber to bumber warranty and that I would have to pay for the repairs myself. I have spent over 3,000 in repairs in 2 years and the bills keep coming in... I still owe about 12,000$ for it so if anyone wants to take this curse off my hands Im all ears.
