    I know the Forum has helped me countless times for different problematic issues when it comes to the LS ...but...I like to give credit and kudos to this magnificent car when credit is due...this year my beautiful wife and I headed for the gorgeous bluffs of the Mississippi river valley in Red Wing MN ...Never once did the LS pass the temperature of 96 Celsius and usually stayed at a steady 94 Celsius with AC blasting frosty Cold...for those who are having there Cooling systems overheating ....I say once again listen to the sound advice of Senior members Joegr and 04' Sport when they say YOU MUST CHANGE ALL YOUR COOLANT SYSTEM COMPONENTS!!! The LS also got a tune up before the trip...I suggest you go with MotorCraft COPs but I ran the aftermarket SPECTRA Brand really hard in 100 degree heat almost the whole trip and they're running flawless along with NGK G-Power Platinum plugs torqued at 19 foot Lbs.and gapped at 0.039-0.043 inch (0.99-1.09mm) the girl rocked the whole vacation and didnt skip a beat...the bluffs were steep and the views were beautiful and with a new sunroof assembly I picked up from the salvage for $75 and a whole new suspension under the LSE I felt like I was literally on rails going around the Valley turns lol ...yes its was a great vacation in the LS once again

      It's always nice to have a trouble free vehicle. And yes... proper/good maintenance is the key.
