    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!!

    Reading on forums, having the same issue on my '02 v6 Lincoln ls, could you send me the files I can hear a vacuum leak and want to find it, would like to find the pcv valve, I am looking for some instructions and pictures if possible.
    I am new to the forum and have read on your valuable info. My Ls will idle for 30 sec, start to shake, then without giving it any gas will just cut off.

    Rod, can you plz email me instructions and exact location of this pcv valve. My 02 lincoln ls just had the engine light come on at 54000 miles. I am an army mechanic and pretty handy with tools. I replaced one coil and all spark plugs as well as both valve gaskets. I looked for the valve and couldn't find it, the sun was setting so time was an issue. I'd appreciate it me email is thanks

    Hey Rod,

    Where do I plug the converter into the battery? I'm not sure If I explained it well enough in my post, but I'm not going to have access to my vehicle, just the battery itself. I plan on bringing along the battery, and using it to power/charge my laptop while I'm hiking in the woods. Thanks in advance for your help.
