1998 Lincoln Navigator Problems

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

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

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

Prior to jacking or lifting a vehicle with air suspension, you must turn off the suspension switch. The switch is generally located in the trunk or on the right side of the passenger foot well.

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.

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

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.

Drive Train, October 20, 1997

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled 1997-1998 Expedition, F150, F250, and Lincoln Navigator vehicles due to a possible shift cable malfunction. On some vehicles, the cable may become detached from the steering column bracket. This may prevent the shifter from engaging the "Park" gear, even though it may still indicate "Park," and the vehicle could roll away. Dealers will secure the shift control cable to the steering column bracket and add a tie strap to the connection.

1998 Lincoln Navigator Reviews

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. Had to eventually convert the suspension to a coil system after spending thousands replacing the entire air bag suspension to no avail. I have lots of problems with the backup sensors not functioning properly. The CD changer has stopped working altogether. I have been cut numerous times by the handle on the center console. I have replaced the motor in the passenger side power window. The spring has broken in the passenger interior door handle, so no handle there and am being told it will be around $600 to replace. Honestly, I feel as if I work just to pay for repairs to this truck.

awesome vehicle.... bought the 1998 with 37k. now has over 260k all original drive train. replaced frnt shocks..couple coils... intake gasket.. and heater coil.(most expensive repair) mobile oneoil in engine...less thn regular trns services... brakes are great since changing to performance friction products 3x the life and better stopping power
