2005 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,

2005 Lincoln LS Reviews

Bought our LS V8 new in 2005 and put 80000 miles in the first three years. Now 5 years old we just had the 100K maintenance done (First plugs and coolant change) and had only one problem ever needing dealer repair. 2 of 8 ngine coils were replaced at 32000 miles,,, then we found out there was a factory service bulletin covering this so Ford replaced them all with a redesigned unit(s) and zero problem since. Classic design, 300 HP, 24.2 mpg avg for 100K miles & REAL comfort...and American made. I WANT ANOTHER PLEASE.

this car is amazing.

Only minor elecrical problems in 3 years.
