Sep 21, 2006 (9:35 am)
i have a '00 lincoln ls with v6 it has a check engine light on and the air bag light blinks 3 times then pauses 2 times then solid. the car hesitates when you decelerate and then reaccelerate. and the car cuts off in park after a few minutes. i have replace the O2 sensors, air idle sensor, throttle position sensor and the egr valve. does any one have any idea what could be wrong. The cars has 97,000 miles on it. It also have a bad oil leak coming from somewhere. thanks for any help.

Did you ever think to pull the code before you started randomly replacing components? If you don't have a scan tool you can take it to Autozone and they'll pull the code for free. You can get code descriptions online - just do a google search.
If you're leaking oil it's probably the valve cover gaskets, which will fill up the spark plug wells with oil and ruin the COPs. If the CEL code is a misfire it's almost guaranteed that's the problem.

it took work inside the steering wheel, but was fixed, to the tune of ~$300.
Unless, of course, the lying b*****ds took three minutes to do the harness fix & wrote it up otherwise.
This was the same outfit that tried to give me a flawed windshield that didn't even have the wiper defrosters in it. Not that I need them here, but it's interesting to see how stupid the Lincoln service people think their customers are.
They're usually right, but not this time.
