Let me start out by telling you guy the story on this car. I bought this car really cheap from a friend that owns a pawn shop. The car is a 2005 Lincoln ls v6 with 61k. I took it to ADVANCED AUTO and they told me its the coils or spark plugs then my friend told me that a place told him is was the ECM that is bad. I read a lot on this problem and it seems to be a big thing with ls models. Can anyone tell me where i need to start or what i need to jump right into? I have done nothing to the car all coils are factory and the spark plugs have never been changed im guessing on the plugs but i know for fact the coils have not. PLEASE HELP!!!! :sick: :sick: :sick: :sick: :sick:

    Probably the COPS (coils). A good mechanic or dealer can do a load test to confirm.

    My '05 has about 57K and I just had to do 3 coils.

    Thats good news im going to replace all 6 coils and 6 spark plugs.

    Yeah I had a miss and you can only get to the driver side coils, the passenger side is hidden by the intake manifold. I replaced the three, figuring 50% of getting the bad one, and the car has ran great since.

  • Hello Lincoln LS owners, I just want all of you to know I took your advice and took my LS into the dealer for complaints about the car not going into 2nd gear smoothly, slow take off, and rough driving! I mention the recall/extended warranty, of course they stated they needed to put it on the machine to see if it was the coil reading bad, and sure enough it was and my car is a V8 and all 6 coils and spark plugs were replaced FREE OF CHARGE! my car runs now like a brand new car and does not use half the gas! I thank all of you for your response, and advice. Being a lady we sometime get taken for ride when we take our cars in for repair. Again thank you, and I hope you all are as blessed as I was with the repairs of your vehicles. Also want to thank Edmunds.com for this forumn where we can gather and share information. God is good to me!

    Wait there is a recall on Lincoln Ls's for the coils and if so what coils ford coils parts? :confuse:
  • akirbyakirby Posts: 7,622
    Not a recall - it's an extended warranty on the coils on some 2003 and later models. If you didn't get a letter then you're probably not covered, but the dealer can check.

    I think it was mostly V8 models.
  • I have a 2004 Lincoln LS V6 and have had to change #6 coil, #1 coil all of which I did myself. Yesterday on the way home it went in to "limp home mode" so took it to dealership this morning and it is #2 misfire which is under the intake which ='s to 4 hours labor. If you are considering buying a Lincoln LS you better think again, nothing but trouble out of these cars. There is a recall (extended warranty) for 03's and 04 V8's but of course not my V6 (what a joke).

    Might as well do all three while they have the manifold off.
  • Well I had already replaced #1 but I did go ahead and have them replace #2 and #3 and replace all the spark plugs. Total cost $650.00. Now the only ones that haven't been replaced is #4 & 5 and I'm ordering 2 coil packs today and replacing them myself and she should be ready to go. This is my second Lincoln LS, I owned a 01 and now an 04 and I do believe this is my last, can't afford the repair bills.

    If the coil problems straightened out, hopefully you'll have a good running, reliable car for a long time.
  • I too have a 04 Lincoln LS. Your so right about the repair bills. My Lincoln has given me more problems than my 99 ford taurus. I had my taurus since 2001, used to boot. Taurus still runs like a champ. Not long ago I got a speeding ticket in it. Lincoln parts are made of poor quality. Plastic. :mad:

    I have a 2002 LS V8 that I bought in 2008 with 38K miles. I started getting some bad misfires and a check engine light at around 75K miles so I took it to the shop and had my mechanics do a full tuneup. They said 2 of 8 COPs were bad. That service cost me $270 for the 2 COPS , plus other stuff. I asked them to replace all 8 plugs and did some other small stuff. They told me that the LS has a history of bad COPs so they would probably need to do all 8 eventually. A couple weeks later I got some hesitation when I accelerated. Since I didn't want them doing one COP every month until they got them all I did a little on-line shopping and learned how to replace the COPs. It's really pretty easy once you get the manifold covers off except the rear COPS are held in by some small screws that are real hard to get out. I had to get a box head wrench with a pivot point. Once I had the right tool everything went real well. For $125 ( 8 COPS on-line ) and about 3 hours labor it's all fixed and running real smooth. :)
  • I bought a used 2005 Lincoln LSE that seemed in mint condition I knew it was to good to be true. It started less than a year ago with the 2 and the 4 valve ignition coils went bad so I took advantage of the recall notice but they only changed the ones that were bad. now the 3 and the 7 valve ignition coils are bad less than a year later and now I am over the 100,000 mile extended warranty. I thought they were required to fix all coils on first incident am I wrong about that, because if i am not they refused to do what they were supposed to do the first time. Thermostat problem is that it is staying open and they want charge me 500 dollars just to replace it. which is not a problem I just want to know if there is a simple solution i can try first before spending that much. I would really like to know how i should move forward with the coils should i pay? or are they responsible for not doing it the when the first two coils went out

    It's an extended warranty so they only fix the ones that go bad. Had it been a recall they would have replaced all of them. Bite the bullet and replace the rest now.

    $500 sounds way too high to replace a thermostat. Don't remember if it's hard to get to but I'd definitely get a second price. If the thermostat is bad there is no option.
