2006 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.
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.
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.

Once or twice a month overheats real quickly, you can watch the gauge move to hot in about a minute or two. I turn off the car wait a few minutes then restart the car the temp returns to normal. It will run without overheating for a week or two then the same happens again.

I purchased my 2006 Lincoln Ls from my Aunt who baught it brand new with 0 mileage. I purchased it over a 2006 SLS AWD with the same amount milage it was mainly because it was half the price of the SLS (being from a dealer) and the LS also had better fuel economy.

At 75K miles, I'm on my 3rd set of tires. Rt. front wheel assembly replaced at 70K for $280. Battery replaced under warranty at about 6 months. When I had deer damage done, the shop owners comment was "This car has a LOT of features (and 50% metallic paint as well.) LOVE this car! Acceleration, ride, comfort, low sound level, everything I can think of.
