      Relays carry high-amperage current controlled by a low-current switch
      When a faulty relay is not replaced, the circuit will either be non-functional or remain engaged, replace the fuel pump relay.

    Why won't the engine start every time when there is plenty battery power.
    There is plenty of battery power, but it will fail to crank about 1 time out of 20. After a few minutes after it fails to start, it will start.

      It could be a starter motor. Need to perform voltage checks when it fails. The failure rate should happen more often as time goes on.

    Why do I have trouble starting engine
    There are 85000 miles on car, battery good. Starting problem doesn't happen all the time. Check engine light has been on for long time. Mechanic said that comes on when the car is older and has to do with electronics of car..

    My car won't start, what's the matter with it?
    My Lincoln only has 99k miles, it has all new spark plugs, new battery, and has a completely undamaged body. It will act like it's going to start upon turning the key, but it won't...turn over, I guess is the correct phrasing. I know nothing about cars. I've been ...

    Can a 2005 V6 engine be used to replace my 2000 V6 engine?
    If so, what do I need to change/replace?

      Check with a junk yard as they all use a software program that can answer that question with certainty. Both the 2000 and the 2005 LS DOHC V6 engine have the same eighth digit engine code "S" but when I look up part numbers of the intake manifold for example the part numbers are different. Also different part numbers for cylinder heads so that leads me to look for a more certain answer.

      Get a code reader from amazon for $20 and plug it in. See if you can establish commumication with the vehicle. The code reader will tell you if there is no communication established. if no communication, replace the Powertrain Control Module Power Relay

      thanks for the there a code reader better than the others for this model truck
    • HouseCallAuto

      I will answer this with more info that you may have wanted but now is the time. There are dozens of code readers out there. Amazon is a great place to review all of them just by searching with the term code reader or scanner. The basic code reader that gives the absolute minimal info (just the codes) anbd the ability to erase them is the Autel MS300 for $20 + or - and then there are code readers that read the codes and all the live real time sensor data and the same tool can also read abs and air bag codes and the cost can climb to $500 and even higher. So, yes there is a code reader that is "better" but not just for this model truck. But if you are the personality that defaults to best out of good - better - best like I do, I'm sure you will pick out an awesome code reader / scan tool that has lots of bells and whistles and if you were to ask a question on here about a driveability problem and you tell me that you have such a scan tool available to use, I will ask you for add'l info that you can read and this add'l info will allow me to more easily target your cause and my answers will have a higher probability of being correct. Example: I might ask you to drive the car at 20 mph and put the gas pedal to the floor and read the "calculated load %" and I might ask you to read the LTFT % (long term fuel trim) or the B1S1 voltage at idle .... etc etc where as the $20 code reader will provide none of that info.

    Can I swap engines with a 1999 mazda b3000
    ok, my 2000 Lincoln ls 3.0l has a blown engine. I have found a 1999 mazda b3000 pickup truck with a 3.0l engine. will I be able to put the engine from the mazda into the Lincoln. and if so, are there any special adjustments that are required.

      Marshall part # = F18313C for the 1999 Mazda 3.0L (VIN = U), part # F18316C for the 2000 Lincoln 3.0L (VIN = S).
      These are different engines - so, no the 3.0L engines from the Mazda to the Ford are not interchangeable.

      Car has 55,000. engine light on and msg els failsafe showing. Dealer recommend Throttle boot assy.??? Had serpentine belt ,belt tensioner and battery replaced. Do not know what codes the dealer found. I bought this car brand new in May 2006 with 12 miles on it. Has been very great car .

      There is no message that displays etl or els in a Lincoln. There is a message that displays ETC failsafe mode. That would be the Electronic Traction Control. This means that there are fault codes stored which will lead to a diagnosis. Obviously more accurate information would have to be forthcoming for any further advice about this. Are there symptoms? Is the car running rough?
