    Need some advice on how to fix this

    The traction control button was missing when I bought the car ~ six months ago... I finally decided to check it out and as you can see the plastic is busted where the two screws are. Think I can glue it back together? If so, any suggestions on what kind? p.s. I don't smoke in the car, I...

    Car got hit...

    Not sure how or where this happened but I got to work the other day, walked around back, and noticed this... It's weird how the damage goes around the curve. I'm guessing someone hit the corner and the plastic "popped" in those two places but I dunno... poor car

    How the F do you guys remove the oil filter

    It's on there good and my hand doesn't fit in there. Can't get any leverage. Call me a noob/idiot w/e but this is my first time ever changing oil myself and I was under the impression these things just twisted off.

    Is this bad?

    I had a flat tire today so I went to put on my donut. I noticed the notches where you are supposed to jack the car up... and I noticed someone has jacked it up along the rail and bent the metal. How serious is this? Should I be worried? I also did this last week. Love the way it...

    Flip key

    Does anyone have one of these? It says if you have two original keys you can program it yourself... but I don't so I wonder how much it would cost for programming...

    Rejoining the LS family

    Sup all. I had a '01 V8 non sport a few years ago and thanks to you all I was able to fix all the minor problems without spending a fortune. Anyway, I've been in the market for a new car and decided I really had to have a '06 LS. I bought a black/black with 72k. It doesn't have the nav unit...

    Anyone near Sunbury, PA ?

    I used to have a '01 LS and thinking about buying another one... anyway I saw this on ebay and if anyone here is close to it I would offer them $100 via paypal to go drive it and let me know if everything works. Worth a shot. Also curious if it has HID's since I asked them and didn't get a...

    Lincoln LS sway bar bushings

    I haven't had my LS since October and I found these sitting around. They are for a Gen 1 non-sport. http://www.energysuspensionparts.com/proddetail.asp?prod=9.5162 Since they are $20.87 with shipping from energy... I'd sell these for $10 shipped. They are the black ones btw. Pm me if...

    Here's a pic of it. Luckily the wind didn't pull my entire door off but it did break this piece.

    Question about a window regulator

    Can the window pop out of the regulator without the regulator being broke? I took off my passenger front regulator and it looks fine. The previous two times the cable snapped but this time it didn't. It's got a warranty but how am I supposed to exchange it for a new one if this one doesn't...

    Transmission or PCM problem?

    I got about 4500 miles left on my warranty so I figure I should address this issue now. When I start it up it starts at 1.5k rpms for about 30-60 seconds then it drops to 1k. Sometimes it also jumps when I put it into gear but it'll only do it the first time I drive it that day. Maybe a...

    Any tips on storing a car for the winter?

    I'm gonna park my LS inside for the winter. Just stuff like how often I should take it out for a spin? Should I fill up the gas tank or leave it empty? If there are any certain things I should do before I park it I would appreciate the input. It's running fine now and I don't wanna pull it...

    Don't try to open your windows when they're frozen

    Title says it all. I just broke both of my front regulators (both of which I had replaced within the past year). Just a fair warning so your wallets don't get raped the way mine just did.

    Almost broke down...

    I was driving down 57 today and was going through a 55mph construction zone. After the 55mph ended I punched it and I really dunno how to explain it but once I hit about 65 it just got real bogged down and was chuggin/jerkin. I lost power, it looked like the speedometer didn't know what was...

    Free Air

    I don't know if you guys have any of these where you live but Shnucks gas station has these electronic free air machines where you just punch in the PSI needed and it does the rest. The LS ride is even better with properly inflated tires!
