Best Answer

This just happened to my car. I ended up spending $2,600 dollars at the Ford dealership to get it repaired ($200 was towards a tune up). The LS cars have a defect on the engine. The gasket is made out of plastic and gets overheated and warps causing oil to leak out onto the spark plugs etc. Look at the answer on replacing the valve cover gaskets for the 2001 and that will tell you exactly what is wrong with your car. This is a pretty car but extremely costly. I didn't realize it had so many problems until I started reading the other owners Q&A on this website. Be forewarned....

Why do the fans turn on when you slow down in your Lincoln LS?

If you are referring to the radiator fans, it is because the engine collant is heating up. It is not uncommon for an engine to heat more when driving slowly as less air moves through the radiator and over the engine. If you are concerned about it or the engine temp climbs above the halfway mark on your guage, change the thermostat. If this does not correct it, you should have the engine scoped by a certified mechanic.
