About Lincoln Aviator

Sensing the big demand for luxury-oriented SUVs, Lincoln Aviator was built by the Lincoln Motor Company, which is a division of the great American multinational automaker Ford Motor Company that sells luxury vehicles under the Lincoln brand, between 2002 and 2005 as a mid-size luxury Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). Originally introduced as a rebadged variant of the Mercury Mountaineer and Ford Explorer, the Aviator was the shortest vehicle in Lincoln lineup. Competing against the BMW X5, Infiniti FX35 and Saab 9-7X, Aviator was still replaced by the Lincoln MKX, Lincoln MKT and Mercury Mountaineer thanks to slow sales.
Lincoln Aviator made its debut in 2002 for the 2003 model year and shared nearly all exterior body panels with the Ford Explorer and Mercury Mountaineer. It was offered in only one body style, 4-door SUV but came in three trim levels: Base, Premium (renamed Ultimate for 2004 model year) and Luxury as well as a Kitty Hawk Special Edition. During its lifetime, Lincoln Aviator was powered by a 4.6 L V8 rated at 302 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque, a 5-speed automatic transmission sent power to either the rear wheels on two-wheel versions or all four in the all-wheel-drive Aviator. Though offering lots of amenities and an upscale interior, the last Aviator rolled off the assembly line on August 19, 2005.

Lincoln Aviator Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Boasting reasonable price, plenty of luxury features, a standard V8 engine and a third-row seat, Lincoln Aviator is worth your consideration when shopping. But if you own an Aviator, please pay more attention to these common problems:
First, for Lincoln Aviator owners, the engine failure is not the worst, the cooling system fails at the same time is the worst situation. The engine failure will ruin your vehicle, while cooling system failure only speeds up and worsens this process. At first, the engine will only shake and give out some strange noises such as squealing or rattling; but when the coolant starts to leak and the engine stays at a high temperature, the engine performance will plummet dramatically such as misfiring, stalling and even suffering from starting issues. The worst situation is the Aviator loses power while acceleration and consumes excessive oil. The lit Check Engine Light and Low Coolant Light could be seen as the most obvious signs for inspection on Aviator motor and transmission mount, engine mount, coolant reservoir, throttle cable and fan shroud is needed desperately.
Second, transmission and steering problems on Lincoln Aviator are not rare for drivers. Since transmission failure could cause drivability problem and steering failure could let drivers lose control of the direction that they want to go. Normally, transmission failure in Aviator manifests as transmission fluids leaking, transmission slippage and surging, the indicator not matching the gear, vehicle staring in another gear or not going into any gear. And the automatic transmission shifter, clutch fork, transfer case seal, transmission assembly, and transmission pan are often the culprits. As for steering failure, you can attribute it to the Aviator power steering hose, power steering pump, steering column cover, tie rod end and power steering reservoir.
At the same time, always attach enough importance to the routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts on your Lincoln Aviator since it may become your lifesaver. After all, no way is more effective than preventing issues from happening to avoid fatal accidents. Some auto parts could not last as long your Aviator could, for example, windshield wiper and wiper blade should be replaced every six or twelve months to make sure they could still provide excellent driving visibility under adverse weather conditions. And please maintain the seat belt, fog light, headlight, antenna and cabin air filter since they also play important roles in making sure safe and comfortable driving environment but always work under harsh conditions.
