Check the engine temperature sensor, and the cooling fan switch, they both control the fan operation. One or both are not working.

97 lincoln mark 8 when driving heats up but when you stop and let the engine run the car will cool down. Can anyone help with a diagnosis

I suggest having the cooling system checked for trapped air not allowing proper coolant circulation; have it checked for a possible head gasket failure, this can sometimes be noted by observing a "perculating" in the radiator when the engine is running with the cap off. Steam coming from the tailpipe on a previously warmed engine or the apperance of "milky " looking oil on the dipstick.

93 lincoln mark v111 antifreeze radiator, how do i bleed air out of rad, coolant from coolant bottle into radiator?

When you top off the radiator you fill it to the neck where the cap goes. When the engine heats up the antifreeze eventually will distribute and the excess will go into the overflow bottle.

After the car cools, it will draw the antifreeze from the overflow tank into the radiator. Then check the level line on the overflow bottle(tank) for the normal amount of antifreeze per marks on the bottle.

You should have your radiator cap checked for its pressure rating. Use the type of cap which allows for an overflow system. The older caps would not let the antifreeze flow both ways.

Help.My 1998 Mark v111 after driving 18 to 20 miles will overheat.It can idle in my driveway for over an hour and all is fine.Car just had a complete, new radiator, hoses, thermostat and flush.Car has no...

sounds like you may have air in the system. i know you said you don't but i'd double check that. Also when idleing there is no load on the engine, so the system doesn't have to work very hard to keep up and the keep the engine cool. Check the operation of your water pump. A faulty water pump can sometimes keep up at low rpms but not under load. However the heat not working, still leans towards air in the system.

Po301 misfire detected cyclinder 5 lincoln mark v111 1996

P0301 represents cylinder number 1. The most likely cause is  the coil boot that attaches on the bottom of the coil. Typically they crack from heat. The other concern could be the coil itself. If you find the boot cracked then replace all of them, they are available at most parts stores and it is good insurance. If you have more questions feel free to leave me a message in my profile, thanks.
