Lincoln Mark VIII Problem Report

Lincoln Mark VIII Timing chain - destoryed engine

(1 report)
Took car in to have noised checked out at 132k miles mechanic said it was A/C compressor not to worry. Next week car chugs and motor jumps to a stall. Timing chain was broke and destroyed the engine. Car was always a money pit, but this was the monster of repairs. Bought a used motor and total cost was around $4500. Car was never the same and constant check engine light and anti lock brake light. Upon my first encounter of multiple problems with this lemon at only 75,000 miles, I tried to trade this car back to the same dealer for another Lincoln. The GM told me it was worth a $1000 on the trade and he couldn't help it that the car turned out to be a piece of junk. This should sum up the Lincoln's view of their vehicles. I would never recommend Ford or Lincoln Vehicles. Wound up getting $1000 on trade in at Nissan for Nissan Altima. -
