The car started making knocking noise while riding on hwy 85 and I pulled over off on an exit and the car stop would not crank. It only happen this one time. It had to be towed. I had to buy a new engine. My Lincoln Ls only has 108000 miles on it . My check engine warning light was illuminated and I took the car for inspection. The spark plugs were replaced and the failure seemed to be remedied however , the vehicle begin to backfire and drive abnormally rough ,,in addition , the engine would exhibit abnormal noises and an overpowering oil oder. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer where the contact was in formed that the head gasket and coil would need to be replacing. The failure mileage was 105,000 and the currant mileage was108,000. The power windows have failed two times and the paint is peeling. I bought this Lincoln Ls because I new it was a good car buying it from the Ford & Mercury dealer . I m sad to say they have let me down and I should not have to be paying double for it. I am a person who believe in taking care of what I live to pay for. I always keep up with oil changing and keeping a clean car . I have over paid more than what this 2001ls Lincoln is worth. I am seriously thinking about not buying another Ford vehicle again. The cost of an new engine and other repairs out of pocket repairs cost me over $7000. 00 in cash added on to my car being paid off. I paid $ 23000. 00and maid my payments on time . Thank you for your sincere concern. .

The 2000 model year Lincoln Ls. After a cold start, sometimes the weather is dry, sometimes not, I will drive 2-4 miles down a fairly level road, and there is a high pich whine noise from the engine, the thermostat starts to rise, the check engine light comes on and if I do not stop it continues until the engine power is reduced and I have to stop. , this occurs at speeds of 0-35mph. I stop for 5 minutes and restart the engine and most of the time it works like nothing ever happened. There is no odor associated with this. The dealer has replaced the thermostat, and some coils. These fixes have not removed the problem. It will not happen for 3-4 months then will reoccur.

My car has numerous parts that tear up repeatedly, within a 6 months time. Valve cover gasket had replaced twice within a 6 months time. The coil packs go up very often. I had panel buttons just tear up for no reason three times! wheel caps replaced numerous times. Overheating issues, door locking issues, battery replaced twice within 2 years time. Ac issues, (I never used my ac. . At all) . This car has a lot of problems on the t. S. Bulletin. I contacted Ford in reference to the multiple issues I was having with the car, the company representatives told me to take the complaint to the establishment of which I had been dealing with. Then they said Lincoln is an independent owned establishment so I am totally confused by this whole ordeal, they know that they have had a lot of multiple problems out of that car. And they refuse to recall some of those (as I would say) hazardous issues. I was at the dealer 2 weeks ago, I was conversing with a rep. At the dealership and he was telling me how the Lincoln Ls was their most problem vehicle, and cash maker for repairs. (OH by the way. . . . . . . I researched to find this site. To answer the question in the consumer section).

I purchased the 2000 Lincoln Ls in November 2002. I have had break trouble at the cost of $1000. In the past two weeks, I have been informed that the car has had catostrophic damage and would be better off buying a new engine. I'm highly concerned about this occurrence and request an immediate resolution to my concerns.
