New Lincoln LS8 owner with questions
I just picked up a 2006 and it failed emissions (smog test) due to the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) is broken or not functioning. The car is an 8 out of 10 with lots of Ford dealership service records and appears to have been garage kept. It was in a jurisdiction where emissions were not required. I checked all of the fuses in (3) locations and found (1) burned out for the center console power point. I like to do my own repairs when they are feasible.
Here are my questions:
1. Is it difficult to change the check engine light bulb in the instrument panel?
2. Which OBD II scanner do you recommend for a moderate budget?
3. Where do you normally shop for parts besides RockAuto?
4. Which service manual do you recommend that I purchase?
Thanks in advance for your consideration on these topics and I am happy to be a new member of this group.
