While driving the car it misfires it doesnt want to go on eccleration. . It is leaking oil into the spark plug wells and affecting coils. . There was a extention warranty on these parts. But it was 10 years or 100000 mile . I didnt puchase this car till after it already had more than 100000 miles so I was unaware of these extentions and time frames. . I spoke with Ford/Lincoln and basically told the extended warranty would not cover. I feel this should be a recall not extended warranty.

Several engine misfires caused by leaking oil. Coil packs, boots, spark plugs, and the ignition switch have been replaced. On separate occasions, we have fixed the rear and driver side windows which fell in the window tracks, the trunk release was repaired, the rear view mirror shook when driving and the brakes are still squeaking since we bought the car.

Oil leak from valve lifter cover gasket. Leak detected Jan 2004. Gasket backordered (according to hood river Ford dealer) to over 8000 vehicles. My vehicle released from dealer without repair. February returned with rough running and engine light. Oil had leaked onto solinoid shorting out several with assocaited boots. These parts were also backorder to the same number as gaskets. Vehicle sat at dealer for over a month without loaner or parts.

In January 2004 the valve cover gasket started leaking on my 2000 Lincoln Ls 1lnhm87a8yy782948. Part back ordered until March 2004. Was informed by dealership that over 8,000 were back ordered in January. Dealership told me I could drive vehicle until part arrived. Oil leak caused the coil boots to soak shorting coils (seven out of eight coils). Coil boot back ordered (no known estimate of time for getting part) xw4z12a402ba. Am concerned about the multiple calls I have made to the local dealer and to Ford motor company to no avail. I have been without a vehicle for over a month. No loaner was offered. Repair costs are escalating. Waited two months for gasket. Have no idea how long boot item will be before arrival. Seems this is a recall issue. Seems Ford motor company is refusing to deal with their customer.
The car had a noise in the right front tire that started 2 weeks after the car was bought. The car has been repaired at least 5 times. Still makes noise and sounds as if the whole front is falling apart. Currently, using oil more than normal, has been checked oil leaks and found none. The engine has an idle miss, and every time starting it has white smoke, this is been going on since January 2003. Dealer has repaired the car with lots of parts, but it is still not fixed. And still using oil, when driving over 60 mph the check engine light comes on. The brake system had to be changed 8-9 months after purchasing the vehicle.
