2001 Lincoln LS 3.9 V8 Sputtering/Bucking
I am new to this forum and to Lincoln LS ownership and was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what is wrong with my LS.
Its a 2001 3.9 V8..79000miles and has been kept pristine. Looks like it just came off the showroom floor. However, it doesn't drive like it right now.
Lately as I drive and the car shifts thru all gears when it comes to 5th it starts "bucking/Jumping " and hesitates however, once past 60mph its smooth again. And sitting at stop lights it sometimes "bucks and sputters" with that same sensation as mentioned before.
I am not sure if it has been tuned before...I have had a lot of routine maintanence done to it lately. Trainy fluid change, coolant etc. I hate the thought of maybe purchasing a problem prone car. I LOVE this car and I would love to know what this might be.
By the way I have no check engine lights and no stalling. This is only an occasional problem as of yet.
Thanks for your help.
