hey i read your post first always check for a loose connection if its not that it is deff the altinator same thing happend to me in the middle of an intersection if it was your battery or a loose connection your car more than likely wouldnt have started in the first place however after you replace the altinator you may need a new battery as well. but first try to recharge the old one

If somebody by chance reads this please help me. I have a 2000 Lincoln LS that is my Baby i love her so much and i don't want to have to sale her but there are so many problems I've had to deal with. I've have had it worked on so many times but i think the people are just screwing me out of money and i need some real help. When I'm driving down the road and i go to pass somebody it will start jerking and just shut off. It's like the passing gear is gone. I've had the coils changed but I'm still having problems somebody please help me.

I thought I would stop back and let the group know of my experiences. A store did a scan and told me I had a miss in 3 and 7. I bought a couple of coils from a seller on ebay who had genuine Ford COILS for $30 each. It took me a few hours to install each one and I have a 1/4" socket set and a 7mm wrench. The tough cover bolts were the bottom rear on each side. I used to be a motorhead having owned a 55 Chevy, 60 Corvette and a 65 Griffith (289 Ford powered sports car) and I don't know how guys work on these things every day. Royal pain in the a--. It seems to me that manufactures just design these things to make money after the sale and these coils are a prime example. I read where COPs are used to save the car owner money in spark plug wire replacements. Well hell how can replacing these things be cheaper ($1200 for a full set at a dealer) or replacing one $20 coil that sits on top of an engine and a set of plug wires. I sure hope I don't have anymore of these things fail for a while. Thanks to the posters who offered the tips.

My 2003 LS had engine coils #3,4, 5,6 replaced April, June, and Oct. 2008 respectively. At the dealer the part was $99 and labor was $371 --$470 a pop! I was laid off my job and unemployment benefits are limited. I cannot afford a dealer repair. Does anyone know of a "good" mechanic that works on Lincolns in Wash., DC, Montgomery County or Prince George's County Maryland?

And dealers wonder why customers hate their asses. Ford's list price on those coils is $75 and that's high enough. For them to overcharge you by 30% is pretty sad. Why not post the name of these swell folks so others can avoid the place. Can't help you with the name of a mechanic. When I found out the raping I would take by having these things installed I bought a couple off ebay and installed them myself. Took a few hours for each one since they were on different banks but I take a lot of breaks.

I have a 2004 LS with about 34,000 miles. I get the random misfire at speeds over 45 MPH. How can I determine which cylinder(s) are misfiring? MY OBD II scanner indicates that there are no trouble codes present.

I got a computer diagnostic stating misfire in number 6. Would the number 6 be located on the driver side closet to the windshield?
I want to do a full tune up. What all should I do/replace for a full tune up?
