Nice, clean 2002 Lincoln LS 3.9 L V8. NEEDS FUEL PUMP. LOW RESERVE! Top of the line sports model. Every option. Power moonroof, power everything, dual zone A/C, 6 disc CD changer, 17" wheels. I bought this car about a year ago from a dealer in Grand Prairie, TX. I was commuting back and forth to Livingston, TX weekly. During one of the trips, the thermostat housing blew. I had it towed back home to Livingston, and found that it was not unusual for this model. The part appears to be metal, but it is plastic. As suggested on the internet, I replaced it with the aluminum Jaguar part (same engine in Jaguar 4.0 and Thunderbird). After replacing the part, I test drove the car to town (2 miles) and found that the OTHER cooling tube had a crack in it as well. This is a pressurized system, so that had to be replaced also (it has been replaced). I ordered the part, but then had to leave the country for 6 months. When I returned, the car would turn over, but not start. I tried starting fluid and it started right up but would not stay running. I started process of elimination. I checked out the fuses (fuel pump fuse was blown). I replaced the fuse, and it did not blow again, but still no go. I swapped out all the relays and diodes that handle the fuel pump. No go. Then I replaced the fuel filter. At that time I tested for fuel and verified that no fuel was getting to the engine. Someone came and checked the computer codes, and it said bad fuel pump driver control module. On this car, the DCM is located inside the rear electronics module, so I replaced that also. No go. I verified that power was getting to the fuel pump connector, so I finally pulled the fuel pump. The fuel lines did not come out as they were supposed to, so I had to cut them. I had located a fuel pump at a wrecking yard in Lufkin, but when it was pulled, it was badly rusted and unusable. I have since purchased a new fuel pump (only), but it has not been installed and the cartridge that the pump fits into may need to be replaced, or parts of the two I have combined into one. So as it stands right now, the fuel pump is out of the car, I have an EXTRA rear electronic module, two fuel pumps in various states of disrepair plus a new pump. I purchased a second set of fuel lines and have snaked them into position, but they kinked at various times during the install and may need to be replaced again also. The car also has two new front tires. The fuel pumps (there are two) are easily accessible under the rear seat. I don't have the time or money to continue with this saga at the moment. I've done most of the work, and have well over $5,000 in the car, but the high bidder can bring a car trailer and can get it out of here. Clean title in my name. Inspection sticker expired the end of February, tags are good through the end of April. 161,000 miles. Feel free to request additional pictures of any part of the vehicle. There are a few door dings, some cracking of the drivers seat, a scrape to the area around the rear left tail light (which was replaced), and a few evidences of smokers in the car. I have the original manuals for the car, and it appears to have had only one or two owners. See the vehicle history report for verification. I work 12 hour days and just don't have time for this. Come and get it! Good Bidding! $500 deposit due within 24 hours of winning the auction, and full payment due within 7 days at time of pickup. VEHICLE SOLD AS-IS. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, ASK THEM BEFORE BIDDING!

Now that the curtain has closed on Mercury, Ford Motor Company will redirect all of its marketing dollars for the oft-overlooked brand to the Blue Oval's luxury outpost, Lincoln. In speaking to Automotive News, the chairman of the Lincoln National Dealer Council, Bob Tasca, Jr., said, "You'll see a lot stronger presence in the advertising of Lincoln in 2011."

Lincoln spokesperson Christian Bokich reminded AN that the automaker is "preparing the way for seven new or significantly refreshed vehicles" that will be launched over the next four years, and the largest ad blitz in 2011 will focus on the refreshed MKX crossover, as well as the MKZ sedan and its hybrid counterpart. Following that, Lincoln has plans to launch a completely overhauled version of its Navigator SUV, an all-new C-segment vehicle and the overhauled 2013 MKZ, which Tasca says will be "strikingly different from its Ford Fusion sibling."

Lincoln fans might want to give incoming Ford CEO Mark Fields a pat on the back for having a hand in saving the brand from the chopping block last year. He's among the people spearheading the rejuvenation of the division away from its stodgy image to appeal to younger customers.
Thu, 15 Aug 2013 13:00:00 EST
According to two unnamed sources speaking to Bloomberg, CEO Alan Mulally was ready to kill Lincoln last year. Following the slow production ramp-up of the MKZ combined a with a costly ad campaign, Mulally was frustrated and openly suggested dropping the brand. However, Fields and Jim Farley, Ford's marketing boss, convinced the CEO that the brand was worth saving. They also created a plan to prevent similar problems for new models in the future.
It seems that one part of the strategy may involve waiting until new models are at dealers before starting a big ad campaign for them. Lincoln global director, Matt VanDyke, recently told Autoblog that the division is holding off on a full marketing push behind the new MKC crossover to prevent the supply problems that plagued the MKZ last year. Its big offensive begins in the fall when the CUVs are at all of the dealers and consumers are at home watching more TV. VanDyke also told Bloomberg that Fields, Farley and Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of the Americas, have more direct oversight over new product launches now.
With the posh surroundings of Monterey, CA during the Pebble Beach week as a backdrop, Lincoln has unveiled is new personalization and luxury service brand, called Lincoln Black Label. Following in the footsteps of programs like BMW Individual, Range Rover Autobiography, and many more, Black Label is strategic strike, aimed at upping Lincoln's brand cachet while luring new customers into the fold. Speaking about this at the Black Label's introduction in California Thursday, Jim Farley, Ford's executive vice president of Global Marketing, Sales and Service and Lincoln, told members of the media that "At Lincoln, our flagship is, you get to choose. That's our flagship."
While Black Label customers will benefit from concierge-like service from their dealers - both during the sale process and throughout ownership - the focus of the introduction is strongly focused on interior design.
Lincoln chose its current MKZ sedan and its MKC Concept crossover (seen in the inset image) as the debutants for Black Label treatment for good reason: the well-received MKC points the way forward for Lincoln styling as a whole, and the MKZ will be the first production vehicle to receive the option of the high-zoot interior design. We're told that eventually, Black Label treatment will be available for the full Lincoln lineup, but the MKZ will be the initial recipient, and not until late in 2014 according to the company's current projections.
