2004 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,

2004 Lincoln LS Reviews

Did anyone know that Lincoln has extended the warranty on the coils because they have alot of problems with the coils, can get them replaced if needed for free. They said Lincoln sent out notices about them but I didn't get one and had spent approx. $450.00 to replace worn out ones Thanks Lincoln for notifying me not.

I PURCHASED MY LINCOLN 2004 LS IN FEB OF 2010 AFEW WEEKS AFTER I GOT IT, THE FAIL SAFE MODE IGHT CAME ON. I TOOK IT IN AND THEY FIXED IT. A YEAR LATER I PUT 1,100 BUCK IN THIS CAR AFTER HAVING IT A YEAR. NOW AGAIN MY FSM LIGHT CAME ON AGAIN AND BACK TO THE SHOP. SO FAR I HAVE SPENT 2,000 BUCKS IN THIS CAR. I HAVE HEARD SO MANY UGLY STORIES ABOUT THESE LINCOLNS. GOOD LUCK TOO ALL THE LINCOLN BUYERS. THEY KEEP YOU BROKE. I LOVED IT WHEN I FIRST GOT HER!! NOW WERE GETTING A DIVOCE. SHE'S PIMPING ME BAD.

Bought my 2004 ls new a bit pricey but had all the bells and whistles. I've had it in the repair shop at least 6 times for the check engine light on. It's always a coil for one of the spark plugs,fix one then a couple of months later another one goes out. Sick and tired of this problem. Wish I never bought it, will never buy another ford or lincoln as long as I live.
It looks great alot of compliments on the style but mechanically it stinks.

I JUST BOUGHT THIS CAR 2 MONTHS AGO WITH NO WARRANTY LETS HOPE I DONT HAVE MAJOR PROBLEMS FINGERS CROSSED...WELL I LOVE IT. IT DRIVES SMOOTHLY. I HAD THE ENGINE LIGHT ON AND MY MECHANIC REPLACED A SENSOR ON IT FOR CHEAP. HES A KEEPER THE GOOD THING I HAVE A MECHANIC THAT CHARGES THE WHOLE FAMILY CHEAP FOR WORK DONE WELL SO FAR. BUT NOW I HAVE TO REPLACE ALL THE SPARK PLUGS JE SAID THEY DONT COST MUCH ANY WAYS :)

The biggest problem witht lincoln ls is ford it self they only have one recall and more tsbs than one can count ford just walked away from this one and left it all on thecar owners back.Of they treat other cars like tis who would want a ford? It has more problems than all theother cars i have owned used in 40 years put together and it is the most difficult car to figure out ever.Very poor mechanicaly
