Tip: Although the door jamb sticker says tire pressure should be 30 PSI, get some nice summer tires and inflate to at least 36 PSI and she will handle like a sports car. Also, from the factory, the LS came with passive rear steering and once you get used to it, it can do amazing things.

When you said LS thought Lexus, and I was like "Wait, an LS broke down?" But it's a lincoln. Sorry, can't help you there.

I'm having rough idle and an error on cylinder #7. I changed the fuel filter first then both the pre burn O2 sensors. It is not electrical as validated by my neighbor shop. Sounds like an injector replacement on cylinder #7 for me. I would caution against using low octane fuel. This Lincoln built V8 was an exact replica of the Jaguar AJ series. What errors were you getting?

These are cars you have to drive. If you need to put them away for the winter, you still need to start it up and flick the switches once a week or the seals will dry out and the contacts will oxidize. You have to do it just like old airplanes. Cycle all of the switches to clean the contacts. Ignition coils can be an issue. They are a bit of a pain to maintain but, it will reward you with joy when it runs correctly. FYI: Many people think this car is over 4000 pounds. It is not. Mine is 3720 pounds with a half tank of gas and no moon roof. I have a 2006 V8 Sport.

I love my 2003 ls sport. I've heard a lot of negative comments about these cars. but i always say its about maintenance. You take care of it and it'll take care of you.
