A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Lincoln LS
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.

Lincoln LS Recalls
On 56 vehicles, the fuel tank may have an area with a thin wall and may crack, creating the potential for a fuel leak, fuel odor, and the Check Engine Light may come on. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel tank free of charge. The Ford recall number is 05S29.
17" chrome wheels may not have been properly heat treated. These wheels may crack at the lug nut holes, which could result in loosening of the lug nuts. The driver may experience vibration and/or abnormal noise while driving. Continued operation of the vehicle could result in the wheel failing off, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the wheels and replace those without proper heat treating. The Ford recall number is 03S01.
If the ball joints are not fastened securely, it could result in a fracture of the ball joint stud. This could result in loss of vehicle control and an accident. Dealers will inspect the torque on the two ball joint attaching fasteners.
Lincoln LS Reviews
Frequent ignition coil problems (replacement required @$150 ea.) Engine knocks when low grade or low quality fuel is used. Engine knocks when a low grade (thinner) oil is used. Beautiful car and a smooth ride, but it is picky at times!

It's not a race to get to your destination. I don't have any problems that everyone i...
