Glad to know I am no the only one having coil issues. I have a 2005 LS V6 that I bought from my dad and when I told him I had to replace the #5 coil, and he said he had to have one replaced a couple of months ago. There was also another code that I'm not sure what is its P0010, anyone know what this is?

If you like them and you enjoy good handling with a touch of luxury it's a great value. You may have to spend some money on it - new coils, valve cover gaskets, sway bars, etc.

Hi, I own a 2005 Lincoln LSE I have had some coil issues and thermastat malfunctions. But other than that it has been a great car. I would have the coils tested before you get it or ask if they have been replaced. Because that seems to be the most reocurring problem that I am seeing

valve cover gaskets and sway bar bushing problems were pretty much taken care of by '05. I've had my '05 for three and a half years and have replaced three coils, one window regulator and the DCCV (dual climate control valve.)

My 04 Lincoln had been sitting in my drive way for a couple of months. All that time I stressed how much it was going to cost me to have it fixed. One day this guy, tells me how easy they are to replace, a woman can do it. Well in that case I checked out the workshop manual I have. Low and behold he was right. I ordered 8 ignition coils, on ebay for $80 w/lifetime warranty. I replaced all 8 in one shot. My car runs like a champ. The only thing my husband helped me with. Under my close supervision of course. Was the last bolt that was hard to get to. Vice grips and the socket made it alot easier to losen. Now I just hope the car runs like that for a long time. Current miles 73,000.

Pretty cool you tackled it yourself. Taking off the intake manifold makes me a little nervous but if I had the time I'd probably do it.
#37 of 38 Replaced All 8 Ignition coils and Spark Plugs! (LS 2006)
Apr 03, 2012 (7:26 am)
After recieving a quote from Ford/Lincoln claiming that it was going to cost amost $2400 to switch out my coils. (Only 4 were bad) I took it upon myself to look around and get the parts needed so I can fix it myself. After extensive research, I bought all 8 coils for about $100 and all 8 sparkplugs which cost me another 80 and did it myself. PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT THAT HARD!!!! The passenger side coils were very easy, It took about 1 hour to do that side. However the driver side was a bit tricky, space is limited and can be very tight. Having the correct tools is VITAL but again (DO YOUR RESEARCH) Drivers side took about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. THATS IT!! 4 hours total and now my car is purring like a kitten again. STAY AWAY FROM THE DEALER unless you absolutely have to! They are crooks! Do your research and fix it yourself. I am not Mechanically inclined TRUST ME! But so far I have changed my Window regulator, HCCV and Coils/Sparkplugs. I cant even begin to tell you how much money I have saved. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask, I will help in anyway that I can. ***STAY AWAY FROM THE DEALERS, HIGHWAY ROBBERS!!!***

Good for you! I have on 06 and I did the same thing. For that last bolt you are referring to, it was on the drivers side right underneath the steering column wasnt it?! LOL! I thought of using the Vice Grip but instead used a 9/16 which was small enough to loosen the bolt and then once it was loosend I used my hand to do the rest. I switched out all 8 coils and Sparkplugs too. Car is running like a champ. No more stalling!
