i don't know what you mean by going through the valve body;but we found broken springs in the valve body.the tools to ream the valve body ports and upgrade the damaged ports was rather expensive.ex.one jig was 400.00 and i needed three different jigs.not counting the reamers.not to mention that there is twenty some valves to inspect.just not cost effective when you can buy a rebuilt valve body with a garranty for appx. 300.00.there are a couple of companies out ther doing this.the same tranny is used in several vehicles in the time frame.all required an exchange.

akirby is exactly right .my tranny was doing the same thing.local dealer said we needed a new one.did some research.tried the fluid change and a valve body gasket replace first and solenoid pack change second.ended up being a broken spring in the valve body.purchased a rebuilt valve body with a warranty.local transmision shop should be able to do this for you.i did the repair myself a garage lift is a big plus.also you will need a pump to replace the fluid.

I think I made a big mistake buying this lincoln ls with 95000 miles. Got the oil changed. After that it started hesitating very badly. had to give it alot of gas to get it going. Took it to mechanic he hooked to computer code that came up was plugs and coil in 8th cylinder. got it done. Gained a little power but it still hesitates when you give it gas. Also no uphill power. Any help would be greatly appreciated....THANKS!!!!

Replace ALL the coils and plugs and if there is any oil leaking replace the valve cover gaskets.

If your car still has less than 100000 miles Ford / Lincon will fix the leaking valve covers under warranty. They extended the watrranty to 100000 back in 05. I just had mine done at 97,500 miles. They'll only replace coils that are faulty because of the oil leaking into the spark plug chambers, but hey that should stop future problems.

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?

Hey everyone, I just bought by 2000 Lincoln LS V6 about a month ago. Since then I have (myself) replaced both valve cover gaskets, all 6 spark plugs, all 6 spark plug coils, the water pump, a new radiatior, radiatior hoses. But now it is having trouble shifting. It is almost "sticking" in 3 or 4 gear. And the only way to get it to shift and to pop it in Neutral put it back in Drive and then it shifts really hard. After that it is fine. but it doesnt do it all of the time just randomly. And it is also (only when it is idleing or at a stop) the car will act like it is going to die and then does die unless I keep my foot on the gas pedal and keep the RPM's a little over a 1000. What is going on with my car? Can anyone help?

So my timing chains broke, I decided to get another engine and put in my car. After doing so.... Well, I came across the exact same issue. Have you found out how to fix it yet by chance? Idk what to do. I have checked all plugs and fluid. Also changed the computer in the car. Still no fix. Please help me. Kyle
