Well I had already replaced #1 but I did go ahead and have them replace #2 and #3 and replace all the spark plugs. Total cost $650.00. Now the only ones that haven't been replaced is #4 & 5 and I'm ordering 2 coil packs today and replacing them myself and she should be ready to go. This is my second Lincoln LS, I owned a 01 and now an 04 and I do believe this is my last, can't afford the repair bills.

If the coil problems straightened out, hopefully you'll have a good running, reliable car for a long time.

I too have a 04 Lincoln LS. Your so right about the repair bills. My Lincoln has given me more problems than my 99 ford taurus. I had my taurus since 2001, used to boot. Taurus still runs like a champ. Not long ago I got a speeding ticket in it. Lincoln parts are made of poor quality. Plastic.
#21 of 38 Replace all the COPs when the first one goes bad
Jan 12, 2011 (8:22 pm)
I have a 2002 LS V8 that I bought in 2008 with 38K miles. I started getting some bad misfires and a check engine light at around 75K miles so I took it to the shop and had my mechanics do a full tuneup. They said 2 of 8 COPs were bad. That service cost me $270 for the 2 COPS , plus other stuff. I asked them to replace all 8 plugs and did some other small stuff. They told me that the LS has a history of bad COPs so they would probably need to do all 8 eventually. A couple weeks later I got some hesitation when I accelerated. Since I didn't want them doing one COP every month until they got them all I did a little on-line shopping and learned how to replace the COPs. It's really pretty easy once you get the manifold covers off except the rear COPS are held in by some small screws that are real hard to get out. I had to get a box head wrench with a pivot point. Once I had the right tool everything went real well. For $125 ( 8 COPS on-line ) and about 3 hours labor it's all fixed and running real smooth.
#22 of 38 2005 Lincoln LSE Coils and thermostat malfunction
Feb 16, 2011 (8:40 pm)
I bought a used 2005 Lincoln LSE that seemed in mint condition I knew it was to good to be true. It started less than a year ago with the 2 and the 4 valve ignition coils went bad so I took advantage of the recall notice but they only changed the ones that were bad. now the 3 and the 7 valve ignition coils are bad less than a year later and now I am over the 100,000 mile extended warranty. I thought they were required to fix all coils on first incident am I wrong about that, because if i am not they refused to do what they were supposed to do the first time. Thermostat problem is that it is staying open and they want charge me 500 dollars just to replace it. which is not a problem I just want to know if there is a simple solution i can try first before spending that much. I would really like to know how i should move forward with the coils should i pay? or are they responsible for not doing it the when the first two coils went out

It's an extended warranty so they only fix the ones that go bad. Had it been a recall they would have replaced all of them. Bite the bullet and replace the rest now.
$500 sounds way too high to replace a thermostat. Don't remember if it's hard to get to but I'd definitely get a second price. If the thermostat is bad there is no option.

I have a 2001 LS V6 man 5spd. It was coils 2 one on each bank. I told the Lincoln Dealership to replace them all. Thinking that the ones that was still good would go bad shortly. Almost two years later the problem return I decided to check them my self. The Dealership only replaced the two bad coils but charged me for 6. I know. Did they return my money, is that your question? What do you think! NO! After replacing them all I have no issues. 3years!

You can get them cheap on Ebay but they're Chinese coils. Not sure how long they will last. Otherwise search Ford dealers that ship parts online and you should find them cheaper than List price at you're local dealer.
