1998 Lincoln Navigator Problems

Rough Idle and/or Engine Stalling Condition

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.

Check Engine Light Due to a PCV System Vacuum Leak

A vacuum leak from the PCV grommet vacuum leak can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. The molded rubber hose connections may crack and collapse, causing the vehicle to run roughly. A damaged PCV hose will require replacement.

Corrosion on Battery Cable Ends

Check the battery cable ends frequently for corrosion. Corrosion can easily migrate under the cable insulation and cause numerous electrical faults and drivability issues.

I purchased a used 2003 Navigator in 2008. The first couple of years were good but it has been somewhat of a moneypit ever since.
