I know this is late, but you might want to check your coil packs. A weak pack can really cause havoc with fuel mileage.

Check engine light came on the other day had it checked turns out its a coil pack #8. Any help with the firing order I know its on the drivers side but not sure which one. Also on the earlier problem it was the drivers side wheel bearing that was making the huming noise. The part was 150 and took about three and a half hours to do. man that thing was a pain to get out I had to beat the ^h&t out of it for ten minutes to get the bearing out. Also any advice on new coils or should I but a generic one. I found some for 15 bucks a piece and as much as 50.

I thought it still used a single coil pack, not individual coil on plugs but I could be wrong. Are you sure it's the coil and not the dreaded head problem? Seems like cylinder 8 was the one that goes bad but I could be wrong. A compression test would confirm it (or deny it).

no it is individual coil on plugs, an dno I haven't done a compression test but hopefully its the coil and not the cylinder I will know soon enough. i'll post when I'm done with it

Good luck. Hopefully it's the coil. Cylinder 8 should be the one closest to the firewall on the driver's side.

ok so I read an earlier post stating that the coil problem was on a recall and after calling my local dealer they told me it was covered I dropped my vehicle off this morning and they have called and said there were two bad coils they replaced the coils and plugs and I'm ready to go. no charge I wont pick it up until after work but hopefully it runs better and maybe my gas milage will improve a bit. Nevertheless I am very pleased with how easy it was to get this fixed by Lincoln. i bought this car used with 90,000 on it who would have thought anything would be covered still on a warranty man I love Lincoln!

I just changed my 2004 Aviator front brakes and had the same problem... that the calipers were loose enough , but could not be removed.
After reading a few suggestions on this forum, I used a C clamp to push the piston back into the cylinder a bit....and that did the trick. It was a bit awkward with caliper still sitting on the wheel.....but i eventually found a way
that's all it took
