I would check the wheel bearings, driver's heated seat, the 'back-up warning system,' and all normal things like brakes and such.
Had many coils replaced as well.

I would replace the spark plugs and check for rear axle wear. I just hit 112,000 on my Kitty and it runs like new. Rear axle starting making noise at 105 and it cost me 3k to replace both. You can purchase brand news coils on Ebay real cheap. Why not replace then all. Keep all oil changes going at specified intervals. Engine, transmission, front and rear cases, etc. I consider this money well spent for a vechicle that runs like new at 112,000 miles.

My driver's side rear window only goes down (and up) when there is high humidity, causing me to believe that a connector just needs to be cleaned. It doesn't matter whether I use the window switch between the front seats or the rear door window switch.
How should I troubleshoot this? I.E. Start with the front switch, clean, move to door.. or vice-versa, or some other method.
Any thoughts, diagrams would be much appreciated.
#939 of 980 03 Aviator AC not working on front passenger side only

My 03 Aviator's AC is working everywhere but the front passenger side. It blows hot air out of those vents. Why would this be happening? Any replies are greatly appreciated!

My Aviator isn't running right. When driving it pulls at times especially when I'm going uphill. When stopped it starts to feel like it's going to quit by shaking a little. This doesn't happen all the time but it shouldn't be happening at all. When I need to get around someone and step on it there's a lag before it takes off. It didn't do that before. Also, when the AC is on it's worse because it happens more often when on. The check engine light isn't on and I just got a brand new radiator. This issue was happening before I got the radiator so I know it's not something that happened during that repair. What could possibly be wrong? I really appreciate any replies

Could be the coil pack or it might be the infamous cylinder head problem. Have the compression checked (especially cylinder 8). If that's ok check the coil pack.
#942 of 980 2005 Lincoln Aviator issues

I noticed yesterday morning when I cranked my Aviator that it starts sputtering and acting like it is about to go dead. I have plenty of gas in it and I replaced the battery last month. If I push on the accelerator slightly, it evens out and doesn't do it anymore. But once I let off of it, after a minute or two, it starts acting up again. Could I have a fuel filter going out, bad gas, or something else?

Could be anything. Fuel filter, bad gas, throttle body, sensor or a bad head.

Actually...you have the worst SUV every made...everything will go out on it, Ford knows it, and could care less. Get rid of it now and by German (who can really make a car) or Japanese...Aviator is the worst car ever built...hence all the complaints!
