i have a 2000 lincoln ls v8 which i crashed last month. i bought another ls and put my engine and transmission in. since then the car has difficulty gaining speed and doesnt change gears while driving. it however works great in reverse. whenever i start the car, for a few seconds everything is going well and the the fan kicks and and the "check transmission message pops up at the same time. i took it to a transmission shop and the diagnostics returned all the codes for the sensors in the transmission are not working. i changed the transmission and still have the same problem. does any one know what the problem might be?

1) Is noise different, Acceleration vs. deceleration?
2) Does noise change when cornering? (Even on X-Way you may find a difference)
3) If you've mis-spelled the issue, and it should be "whining" check trunk for presence of ex wife.
#'s 1 & 2 are serious.

Sounds like you possible crushed a wire harness somewhare in the 3-4 miles of wiring that the car has, during the engine swap. Or, possibly something didn't get connected correctly.
I'd offer to sell you my shop manuals, since I no longer need them, but this forum doesn't allow that kind of communication....
#15445 of 15500 2002 Lincoln LS 110k Miles Airbag Traction Cntrl Trans Issues B1869 B1932
May 07, 2011 (7:54 pm)
I bought a 2002 Lincoln LS with 110k miles. I noticed the horn and steering wheel controls were not working, the traction control light was on and the car would beep when i put the car in drive 5 sets of 5chimes. I scanned the car and I got the following codes.
B1869 Lamp Airbag Warning Circuit Warning Indicator Circuit Open
B1932 Driver Airbag Resistance High
P1575 Seed Control Command Switch Out of Range
P1788 High Pressure Control Solenoid B Open Circuit
So far I changed the Driver Wheel airbag and Airbag clockspring. My horn and steering wheel controls are working fine but I still get the Traction Control Light and the airbag chimes. I am also still getting the B1869 and B1932 codes.
Any idea on these codes? And the traction control?

Check the yellow harness under the driver's seat for the airbag light and the TC is probably an ABS wheel sensor. Just guesses though.
#15447 of 15500 Passenger Window regulator
May 20, 2011 (8:26 am)
I have a 2006 LS V8 Sport model and recently my passenger window got stuck and wouldnt go up anymore. I heard something snap which I am assuming is the Power window regulator, when I hit the power button I can hear the motor still running and it sounds as if glass is running through it...My question is, Since the motor seems to still be responding to the electric signal, do I have to replace the motor AND the regulator or can I still use the same motor and just replace the regulator? Can someone help me out please? Much appreciated!

You can just replace the regulator. You may have to drill out the rivets on the old one though. Initially it was a single unit.

There's two options on those. One, replace the regulator w/motor. 2. Replace w/out motor. There's a hitch though. Often, you will notice the motor version is close to or less than the no motor version. Depends on who you are purchasing from.
Ford may have revised your model year regulators so, it's a good idea to be sure you are getting a late or FRESH part and not something that has been sitting around.
My thinking on them is, find a good parts house and just get the better of the after market brand since Ford doesn't bother to require quality parts in this area as they break all the time. Cheap is cheap so, pay cheap and get the same junk Ford pushes. These regulators are failing way too soon and to often.
#15450 of 15500 Time for 'tuneup' and the 'other' site
May 28, 2011 (3:17 pm)
heydudes and dudettes;
My 2001 LS manual has 135000 miles on it. I've never done anything under the hood cept change oil and filters. It has developed a very slight miss, with no engine light. Otherwise runs like new. I bought 6 plugs but got a big surprise when I looked at replacing them. This ain't my Dad's (or even my) 390 where I could pull and replace 8 plugs in about 15 minutes. Course that 390 couldn't go 135000 before it's first tuneup eh?
So, it appears I need to pull off 2 intake plenums (or manifolds?) and move associated hosing etc b4 I can get to all the plugs, which are then hidden by the individual coils on each plug.
I'll be also replacing the PCV valve and will look closely at connecting hoses etc for cracks or leaks.
My questions are 2:
1) Since the COPS (coil-on-plugs) are anywhere from $54 to $120 (thus $324 to $720 a set), I'd like to NOT replace any of them. But since I would need to pull the plenums again and replace the gaskets again (appx $50-100 a set plus time etc) if one fails soon, this might be good insurance. Opinions?
2) Looking for other opinions, I tried to rejoin the 'Other' site. However, though it is there, I get no response to emails or the application form. Wondering if anyone here knows if it is dead or alive?

I've been there and done that. You're on the right track, just make sure you replace ALL coils. Great decision on replacing the gaskets as well, because the allow oil to leak on coils as they become worn. At 135,000 miles, you're lucky to be just having a slight miss. Your coils, plugs, and gaskets are all over due at the mileage so be sure to replace all. I have a 2000 Lincoln Ls with 175,000 miles going strong.
