Lincoln LS QuestionsRefine by vehicle
2005 ls v-6. I've noticed that, at highway speeds, there is some difficulty keeping a straight line without constantly moving the steering wheel slightly back and forth. The car seem to drift from one side of the lane to the other. There is a sort of "dead zone" at top center and a few degrees in either direction in which you can turn the wheel without a response from the tires. we are trying to understand what is causing this problem?
It's in the back of the car it does this
I changed the ac filter but I can't reset so it says ac filter 100% and the check engine light is still on. How do I reset? I already tried hitting reset but it's not doing anything.
Light comes on when turning on car. I replace it when I do oil change on car, but light still comes on.
Engine is overheating within minutes. Took to mechanic after turning the car on in the
morning only driving eight miles and needle going to hot and the car shut down. They
put in a new surge tank/overflow tank and replaced with all new coolant. New
waterpump. I have taken it to 4 mechanics and all are stumped.
the parking break is all the way down and i have the ATS button off
Mechanic drained and replaced transmission fluid. Test drove 1/2 hour. 3 hours later I picked it up and the temp gauge starting rising and alarm went off. Should they have also replaced the thermostat? Also, had them replace the clock switch (horn, airbag light on & cruise control was out) Thank you for any advise.
This causes the car to start over heating of course. I have to refill my reservoir one a day. My car also has a ticking noise now coming from the engine that has progressed a bit too.
Water not circulating through waterborne hoses.waterborne not stop up.
Hydraulic fan fluid down by half, added proper fluid 5 days ago. Antifreeze needs topping off every couple, few months. Next day after temp indicated car was overheating, I drove it for 15 minutes/3 miles without (same distance as day before incident)the problem re-occurring. Had the car for 5 years. This usually occurs during hot months and a lot of stopping and going. Also, all 8 coils have been replaced twice since 2004. Thank you for your help.
There are no trouble codes in the computer. Traction control & the ABS seem to be working correctly. The light is on all the time when engine is running.
It will not tilt up/down it will sometimes drive in/out but not consistently. I tried dis/reconnecting the battery but it didn't help. What could cause/fix this?
the lights will dim and the car will die. I will get the car jumped and its starts right away. The battery and Alternator have full voltage.
I have checked connections to bottom of tank. Is there a sensor involved that needs to be replaced?
I just bought a 2005 LS. After 2nd day engine light came on and has stayed on. Owners manual says gas cap might not be seated right or installed correctly. I filled up tank, put cap on and it and found it will not click at all. Can I buy an after market locking cap that will click. I think this might be the cheapest course to take first. Any help though in case. BTW, there is no dealer warranty and I'm a bit pissed they didn't disclose this problem. They had car a month in their inventory and I think this is something they knew about. On the plus side this car only has 42,000 plus miles on it.
I just bought a new resivor and radiator but my fans are not comming on
