After fixing my main problem by replacing the broken TCC control (S2) spring. I have created another problem. Two small green balls fell from the valve body when I seperated the gasket
from the valve body topside. Could any one email me the location the came from. Thanks!

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

I had a similar problem and the computer at the dealership noted that there was a low voltage reading on an air intake sensor. The sensor was clogged with cottonwood fluff. They cleaned it up, it read normal, and the car has been fine since.
