    Suggestions on where to post Lincoln 4 sale?

    Due to the fact that these cars are a little nicer and more expensive than the average used car, does anyone have suggestions on where to post an LS for sale add? We have a local trade paper, but I am not sure how many people would look for a Lincoln in that type of paper. I did post it...

    When Zipties aren't enough!

    I saw this on Ebay and thought I would share it. I have had a couple of emails over the last month asking me about broken fuel injector tabs. The ziptie works fine, but in case someone wants to go the extra step...

    Rear Wheel Stud Replacement Help

    I can't seem to find a place to fit the new stud in for the rear passenger wheel. I have "modified" the dust shield to try to find a place up top, but the hub seems to be in the way every place I try. It seems that I have to "press" the hub out or something complicated. Quik?? Have you...

    Window Regulator Part # Question

    Hello all, I am trying to find out how some people found the window regulator for $35.00. I searched the threads to get the info and gave my dealer the part # I found here, and they said that part # was showing up for a 2003 model. The # they had listed for the 2000 was $75.00. This is for...

    Theft -- Wake Up Call

    You know...I lived in a quiet neighborhood for over 10 years. I didn't have to lock anything and didn't have any problems. Well...I did have the mailbox taken out a few times. :) Now I live in a subdivision and have old habits... I sometimes forget to lock the doors. It's not like our cars...

    Anyone else have this misprint on their 2000? Makes you wonder, doesn't it? My wife has the same sticker on her LS, but it is spelled right. :)

    Long-Term Strange Misfire Fixed!

    I thought I would post my findings here. I have had a strange misfire on my Sport LS since I have had it. I wasn't sure if it was even a misfire. It shook upon startup but didn't feel bad or harshly buck upon acceleration like the usual coil problem most of us have faced. I had people tell me it...

    Swapped in the Audiophile system...

    It wasn't too bad. I took the rear deck assy and head unit from my wife's car and put it in my car. She wanted the extra trunk space, so it worked out for both of us. The only modifying I had to do was make a 4 ft harness of 4 wires that went from the Audiophile head unit to a blue connector...

    Rear Amp/Center Amp Wiring Harness removal?

    I was looking to swap radios with my wife as she needs more trunk room and I wouldn't mind the subs. I have the standard radio and she has the Audiophile. Does anyone have detail on where the line-out harness goes that is not present on the non-audiophile system? I thought I read that it ends...

    Sway bar bushings. Who would have thought...

    Well, I finished installing new sway bar bushings. My originals didn't look bad, and I thought I might be wasting my time, but some Ford techs swore this was a common problem, so I tried it. Sure enough...it looks like my clunking is gone. You can't tell if yours are bad by looking at them...

    $460 Later..still clunks &%^@%$!#@

    "Venting on" You know that movie "The Money Pit" where Tom Hanks loses it when the bathtub falls through the floor?? I think that is where I am at now. I about :q:q:q:q when I drove the car down the driveway and still heard the clunk after replacing both lower ball joints. I KNOW the ball...

    Coil Replacement Document

    Hello all, I have seen a lot of people needing this information, so I made a web page for it like I did my valve cover doc. I hope this sheds enough light on the subject for everyone (with the 3.9l) to do it. If anyone has anything to add to it, or if you see any mistakes, let me know and I...

    Clunk in the Front-End

    Well, I checked the sway bar bushings and end-links and they look good. I pulled one of the struts to look at the mount bushing, and I believe it looks OK. I didn't feel like taking that thing apart to find out for sure, but I am pretty sure it is OK. So...I start moving the wheel around to...

    Rough Cold Idle. Found a dry coil bad...

    My car has been sounding a little rough when cold on startup and I have had some vibration at 40-60 mph. I figured it might be a bad coil so I bought one and started swapping. I thought I might have guessed right when my idle started at 2300 instead of 1900 or so. I had a wet well, so I tried...

    My Ebay LS Does Exist!

    I washed the car the other day and realized I had no pictures of the exterior, other than the pics I took of it coming off the truck. The driver had to go through a nasty blizzard to get to Knoxville. It has a ways to go, but it has come a long way so far! Here's a pic of when I picked it...

    Coils from RockAuto?

    Bearings out of Rear-Diff [pics]

    Well, I yanked out the rear diff, finally to have a look. I think it doesn't look that great, but could be worse. I don't think there is any damage to the gears or anything, but these bearings look strange. I have seen bearings blue and scratched, but these look pitted. Maybe one of you can...
