Lincoln Navigator Maintenance and Repair

    Hello, I was wondering if you ever solved the issue you had with your starter, my 2000 navi does the same thing occasionally.

    Hey all,
    I own a 2000 Navi with just over 170k on it. Chronically throughout that last 5 years of my owning the vehicle, I have noticed an odd grinding noise and vibration coming from what seems to be the front right tire while turning. The noise is infrequent but is definitely not normal. I've taken the vehicle into my local Ford dealership and they couldn't find anything wrong with the vehicle(largely due to the fact that the noise is infrequent), would anyone be able to offer some insight as to what this noise may be stemming from?
    Furthermore, I have one more issue that is again, infrequent. From time to time, my navi, when started, make a deafening whining noise and fail to start. When this occurs, I have to retry several times to get the car to start... this again has been looked into by the afore mentioned dealership with little resolve? has anyone had similar problems and would they please offer some insight?
  • Can you still help me? My OD is facing rear, i have no tweeters, but i do have 3rd row buttons by B pillar. Do you know what series mine is? Ive had nothing but issues.

    i had a the same problem , apparently im findin out that its not an everyday drivable car , i guess for the first couple of years if its new and your lucky,,

    "hummin"a - your suspension and steering wheel assembly " "40 $" might have to be changed , it gives that sound and then one day just locks the steering when it fails completely ,
    "thumping" rear ac compresser is faulty and also known to fail.
    hope this helped,
  • I own a 99 Lincoln Navigator, with 248,000 miles on it. It has been in two minor wrecks. I've never spent over 300 bucks on it for anything except brake jobs or tires! Just recently it started to run rough at idle. Above 55 mph the engine runs rough. Do the ignition coils or control modules needs testing?

    read this sub forum for navigator no-start questions
    start from post 18 onward.
    it is your fuseblock which needs replaced. there is a TSb from the Dealer but no recall. essentially I replaced it and problem has never occured again. there is a design issue with it and there is a replacement.

  • I get a light ticking or clicking noise when I begin to accelerate that I can hear in the cab. The truck runs fine, and when I get up to my cruising speed, the ticking goes away. Any ideas or is this standard?

    I have a 2004 Lioncoln Navigator. The engine warning lamp now comes on but the driver handbook says that is an emission problem.. This is an ex-California car. What kind of emisssions problems can I be having. Only thing I notice is that on start-up there is a bit of a hiccup.

    Hey all,
    Which brand(s) do you guys recommend for upper and lower ball joints? Brake pads? I just bought a salvaged Navigator and the suspension and brake system is completely shot amongst other issues. Any help would be great especially about the ball joints because I see that the suspension is a major issue with the Navigator.

    Sorry, forgot to mention. It's a 2004 Navigator

    Hello I also have a similar problem with my 2006 Lincoln navigator. When its on the road about 45 mph it hesitates and shakes a little and check engine light turns on. From what I have read, lots of people are having the same issue. Many have also said to change spark plugs and coils. What do you think?

    If you have a lot of miles you exhaust converter maybe your problem and I would have a engine scan before spending money on plugs,etc.
  • My 2010 Navigator with 35K miles has stalled twice during or right after prolonged idling in the hot sun with the AC running. It has been in the shop at the dealership for 5 days. They have replicated the problem, but the computer is not showing an error message, so they do not know what to do... Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be? Thank you!
  • I am having trouble locating this piece under the car. other post say under the spare tire but nada, looked all over driver side, no luck.

    Can someone please tell me, or show me a diagram for locating the low pressure side of of A/C so I can add refrigerant. I looked, but cannot find it
  • Check the front discs and replace them if faulty. And uneven surfacing of the disc will cause that vibration.
  • Vmootilal,

    Just a quick unrelated question... In your 2002, does the 3rd row seat come equipped with the LATCH system brackets?

    I have a '98 and would like a safer seat for my kids and I heard that the 2002 models came with it equipped.
