I own a 01 Navigator and had the same problem with the #6 cylinder at 65K. Lincoln would not stand behind the product. I finally took it to a Ford dealership and they split half the 4,000 dollar repair. Now I just spent 1,000 getting the compressor for the load leveling. Not to happy with the Lincoln experience.

To the person referring to the "4100" motor... he was talking about the price, not the engine. Do you even know what you are talking about? The Navigator uses the Ford 5.4L Triton engine, not a "4100" engine... so how can you recommend NOT buying one? Ford doesn't even MAKE a 4100 engine. In fact, the only thing that ford produces using that code is a New Holland Tractor, model 4100. Don't post if you don't know what you're talking about - you'll only confuse people.

I think he meant a $4100.00 engine. Everyone knows that Ford doesn't make a 4100 cid motor.

I have a 1998 Lincoln Navigator, and I have had no problems with it... Not one problem... It's 2007, and it is still running the same as it did when it was brand new...

The only problem with it now, is someone stole my front grille emblem... I don't know why, but a new one is on its way to me...

This car is AMAZING... I recommend this SUV to anyone... The people that have had so many problems with the truck shouldn't be the owners of it... they don't respect it, and they probably were treating it like dirt.

There is no reason to change the engine twice, how about you don't slam the gas down from a dead stop, take car of your car and it will be fine!!

I have 498,546 miles on mine, original motor and everything. Honestly...

The air ride is still great... front driver's side needed to be replaced at 356,000 miles, light bulbs needed replacing, and the volume control on the steering wheel stopped working... only very minor problems, but I still love this truck, and I will have it for many more years to come!

I own a 2000 Navigator and recently I put 24 inch wheels and tires, now my front driver side makes a grinding noise when I accelerate, I have taken it to the dealer with my stock wheels and the tech said there is nothing wrong with the vehicle. Any ideas??? Besides taking the wheels off... I purchased the wheels for 3k so kinda sucks to take them off.

Need help??? I have a 2000 Lincoln Navigator. Just wondering where I can find a emblem for my front grill. Looked all over, no luck???

Try a salvage yard. You may be able to find a Lincoln vehicle there and take the front emblem off one of those.

I have a 2000 Lincoln Navigator 4x4, and got suspension parts; less than 300 for the pump and new rear air bags.

My problem is that I have a grinding sound on the passenger side of my truck when I put it under acceleration load. The truck has 200,000 miles on it and it runs great. I have put in new bearings and rebuilt all the running gear except the motor. The transmission guy doesn't know what it is. If anyone has a clue, please clue me in, it will be greatly appreciated.

Also, to get better mileage, I use synthetic oil and a K&N air cleaner. I get 13.9 in town and up to 16 on the road with the 32 valve motor.

"My problem is that I have a grinding sound on the passenger side of my truck when I put it under acceleration load."

It took me 2 years to solve this problem; they swapped out about $5k in parts.

The answer; one of my tires was larger than the others, which made the all wheel drive slip.

I have a 2000 Navigator and I am having wiring problems. I will be driving down the road and my stereo will come on and when I shut it off the heater comes on.

Anyone having the same problem?

Had the same problem with mine.

Ford did about $5k worth of work on it.

After about 2 years, found the problem was that one of the tires was bigger than the others. The drive system has a very tight tolerance as to tires size.

Measure your tire circumferences and compare.

I had a similar problem with my 2000...finally realized one day that that was a small amount of water in the left corner of the dash. Had the window replaced by a good company and no more problems. Think water just made its way down to some electrical stuff.
