#776 of 829 Oxgen sensor and Catalyc converter on bank 2
Jul 15, 2010 (11:07 am)
I just purchased an 06 navigator and after a week the check engine light came on. I took the car to Advance Auto Parts and got a quick diagnostic test ran and it showed the catalyc converter and oxygen sensor on bank 2. i'm wondering would this be under the warranty that I have left on the vehicle and is this a common problem?

I am having the exact same problem as everyone else... 85K miles need to replace cylinder head. I am curious jlevin1, who did you talk to (dealership or Ford) and what sort of argument did you make. Did you find a fairly logical approach of I'm a good customer in good standing and would like to buy more lincoln/ ford products in the future or did you take more of a foot-stomping approach?

You were told it was totally out of alignment before it was aligned, and now 3 months later shows tire wear. I would go back so they can recheck the alignment and it maybe that it was so far out before they aligned that it may need a another or a fine tune.
I take it that you have OE wheels and tires, if not this may well be your problem.
I have been in the Tire and Alignment business now 38 years! and have saw it all.

my battery was dead on my navi for about 2 weeks so i had to charge the battery, when i finally got the truck started my check suspension message was on, and my bags wouldnt air up, i checked the fuses that the owners manual said were tied to the air suspension, but they were all good. i also flipped the switch at the back of the truck a few times but nuthing happend, i also tried to drive it. im all out of ideas nothing was wrong with the air ride before so why would having a dead battery kill the suspension system. can someone please help me.

#783 of 829 98 Linc Nav Startup Whine
Sep 08, 2010 (11:29 am)
I am having a problem with my Navy. It whines to high heavens at startup sometimes. I turn the ignition, and it gives off this whirr like metal running across cement. It may do it a time or two more, then it starts liek a champ.
I have replaced the starter 8 weeks ago. Also, changed the battery cables. The techs say my electrical system is fine...good battery, alternator and starter, and corresponding wiring.
What could it be? This does not sound good... Oh, by the way, I am at 200,250 miles. Changed out the trans at 195, and had some idler valve problems at 140 or so...other than that, has run like a champ.

it's a 9mm allen wrench the only place I was able to find one was at a reasonable price is one set at Lowes just happens to have on you can buy it direct from ford but it's super expensive.
