How to install shifter Lincoln aviator
If your doing it yourself, you are saving a lot of money. You need a manual to do it. You have to remove the console and other pieces close to it. There are hidden screws and bolts to remove. An extra $30 is money well spent. Plus the manual will help with future repairs. You can get them at parts stores.

2005 lincoln aviator on fifth battery in nine years. Why?
In my Lincoln L/S, the first one lasted 3 1/2 years & was done under warranty
Second one lasted 5 years
Now that one failed two weeks ago at 20 months
In my case the battery is in the trunk & you can't find a battery with
a vent for that car & ford batteries are on odd size, just for their
design or group size,go figure
The Motorcraft Max is free for 3 years & pro rated for 100 months,
so not a bad deal.
IF you have a big enough battery tray & a basic looking battery,
try the NAPA Legend Batt 8465 750 CCA 65 BCI (group size)
They are from East Penn MFG in Penn & plants in other states & their own brand is DEKA in the private parts stores
What I like is that there are no caps on top & no leaking, just like
the old AC Delco I used for 40 years & got 7 to 9 years out of them
I have had a Napa in my 30 year old blazer for two year so far
The question,well I think it is part battery & part the load the electronics puts on the batteries
When I open the trunk & have only the trunk light on & with a
new or old battery, I only get 12.3 volts
I get the same thing on my scan tool data when I turn off the car
& then put the key on,yet all data is good KOEO or Engine Running.

Clunking and whinning when locked in awd
check the cv joints for wear. check rear drive shaft for worn slip joint splines and "u" joint wear. When you lock in awd there is no centre diff to allow the variations between the wheels and so you are experiencing a torque build up between the front and rear diffs . This put stress on the entire drive chain so any looseness or worn parts will display noises. Remember that the awd lock should be only used on surfaces that allow the tyres to slip and relieve the stress ( dirt road---snow---mud--ice )

Your engine fan is temp control, it will lock up when you are driving at a high speed, the clutch could be bad and also you have a electric coolant fan too..

Mis fire in 8th cylinder, just had coil replaced
If this is still under the Warranty, back to the Dealer it goes. If you had to pay for an unneeded part, ask for compensation.
The sparkplug and coil get a signal to fire from the PCM. If the signal is not getting to the #8 coil/plug, then you need to move upstream to the PCM. Something may be corroded in the connector for that single cylinder.
The other test is the Noid test for injector firing. You might want to throw a new injector into the #8 spot and see if it helps.
Finally, the rear cylinders,4 and 8, have been used to route exhaust gas to the EGR. This is an additional duty that may effect exhaust flow on that single cylinder.
You did not state the year of your vehicle. For a time, a part called a "Cam Phaser" on 4.6L and 5.4L V-8 engines would cause timing issues inside the motor. Each side of the motor is independently timed, so you can have an issue on only one side of the motor. Perhaps with cylinder 8, a combination of events is causing your problem and when both the EGR flow demands from cylinder 8 and improper timing from a bad "Cam Phaser" causes a misfire. The "Lean Code" which has not appeared is an average of all 4 cylinders on one bank. Since you are not dumping "Raw, unburned fuel" from cylinder 8, we can assume that cylinder 8 is running lean and may not even be getting fuel.
