Plugs were replaced
Lincoln Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

This usually means you have a dirty throttle body if vehicle runs good otherwise. A failing coil can cause stalling but will also cause misfire which usually turns on check engine light. You can get throttle body cleaner from your local parts store, spray onto rag, and wipe out throttle body good. This is so simple it is often over looked, a shop would charge around $60. Let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.

Throttle body was cleaned he claims that one side of engine is running lean and the other is too rich
Lincoln Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

That would usually turn on the check engine light. A misfire could make one side run lean/rich so that could be something took into. Another possibility would be injectors. Any idea how they determined one side is running rich and other lean?

The mechanic checked all coils and said exhaust might be restricted but then he created good flow and motor is still idling rough
Lincoln Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

I'm starting to think mechanic is not doing proper testing or have correct equipment. I would recommend bringing to a different shop, even dealership. I do not think this is a serious problem and is somethin the dealer can fix within a hour of labor. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.

I didn't pay for you to tell me take it to another shop
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
If that's your best answer I want a refund
Lincoln Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

I can put in refund request or open question up to see if someone else has some advice. I'm just not sure your mechanic has properly cleaned throttle body or determined vehicle is running rich/lean properly. Somethings are hard to figure out over computer, especially if you are no doing the work yourself so I'm talking 3rd person. Let me know if you would like refund or me to open question back up. Thanks.

I'm a car dealer and sort of knowledgeable with cars and my mechanic is excellent and he even sent it to a automotive electrical expert and it has them stumped it has good compression and everything checks out could it be a intake manifold gasket or a vacuum leak or catalytic converters
Lincoln Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

I think problem is dirty throttle body or throttle body itself. A vacuum leak should show up when spraying gaskets with starting fluid. Catalytic converter would not cause this symptom either. Most vacuum leaks would also set lean codes.
