    P.S.- a diagram on how to remove the valve cover to replace the gasket would be helpful, I already found one for the intake manifold. Thank you! (I made an account here solely because I seen this forum, and you seem to know your stuff)

    Hey Rod, I have a 2002 Lincoln LS v6 and found I have an intake leak and also a valve cover leak. When replacing the valve cover, does the intake manifold need to come off?

    Hellos to you Mr. SHOROD. I come as many others...please send the fix for 2001 LS. I will begin my repairs once I have rec'd the info. From reading the threads of you and many others I hope to get the same favorable results that they are experiencing when getting the ls back on the road. Again thank you much for your assistance. nathan in 2001 Lincoln Ls 3.0

    Hey Rob..
    I have an 02 Lincoln LS that isn't starting everytime. Had my local mec look at it, Battery and all connections OK. Coming up w Code B1281, and he sez possibly a defective dash cluster, or security module.
    RPM's fly up and over when I try to start it, and lites blink and horn blows,,, Any ideas? Thanks, Clock spring replaced a yr or so ago when the lites/horn and radio was acting weird. That fixed the problem

    Hi Rod,
    New member here. My 2001 Lincoln LS has NO heat. After reading numerous threads, I was able to troubleshoot and determine the following: no hot fluid exiting the DCCV, even after disconnecting connector to DCCV, no help. Inlet hose to DCCV from top of engine thermostat housing never gets hot. Also, lower radiator hose never gets warm either. No hot fluid entering or exiting DCCV. Ran on-board diagnostic of DATC, no fault codes displayed. Engine temp remains constant (guage mid-range), and does not over-heat. Could this be the thermostat not opening, or will that have any effect on no hot fluid to the DCCV? THANKS!!
