Lincoln LS ProblemsOverheating Due to Damaged Water Pump
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.
Checking and adjusting the AC compressor clutch air gap can extend the service life of the AC compressor.

Lincoln LS RecallsA Crack May Develop in the Fuel Tank
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.
