Coolant blowing out of the cap is due to a bad cap but overheating will also cause this to happen, you will need to find out why its overheating. First is to make sure the cooling system is full, then run the engine as you keep an eye on the temp gauge inside the car. If the engine starts to run hot take a look at the radiator fan and see if its turning, if it is then i would start with a thermostant but if the fans are not coming on then i would take a look at the fans and also have the coolant temp sensor checked,a scan tool would be very helpful here, you would be able to test alot more things, but this is where i would start.

There is a hose on the side of the coolant resevoir that has a straight blade screwdriver fitting in it. Open the fitting and this will bleed the heads on the LS. Without opening this you will never get the air out of the head, trust me.

SOURCE: Lincoln LS 2000 V6 overheating after reparing intake manifold lea

Couple of items you need to check. Make sure that your radiator is flowing properly. Often after sitting dry, blockages harden up and flow less than before, overheat originally before repair can also free up debris inside engine and add to plugging of core. Make sure that fans are operating especially with ac on. If you did not change thermostat during repair, change it. Not often but they can sometimes partially open, restricting flow. Also make sure that coolant is at correct concentration (50/50) and that there is no air trapped in the system.

SOURCE: 2002 Lincoln LS V6. AC blowing hot air but

its probably the compressor cutoff switch cutting your compressor off at the wrong time and causing your ac to blow hot. that switch is under your hood right on top of the engine easy to get to. I hope that helps you out!

2003 Lincoln LS V8 3.9. It was overheating. I replaced thermostat housing kit with thermostat and coolant reservoir. the coolant temperature gauge stops straight horizontal, at this time the car diagnostic...


I dont think the coolant is boiling, I think you have an air bubble in your system wich is causing a air lock and youll need it flushed out. Your reservior cap should be tight always.. never loose this is an air tight system and your allowing it to get air in it. I have a 2002 linc ls and just had to pay 1000.00 to replace the system because I let an air lock go for too long and had so much back pressure I blew up my reservior.

2000 lincoln ls heater not working...thermostat?


- If temp guage reads normal, the lack of heat may be due to the Heater Control Valve. Located in front of the radiator. Lower passenger side. A real bugger to replace.
- The plastic cap just over the thermostat is key in re-filling the anti freeze and bleeding air.

Lincoln ls overheating


Cheap try is new radiator cap. If it cant pressurize the system the boil temp lowers considerably. If put new cap on and still over heat could have bad head gasket or a blockage in radiator...Cap is common and 10.00 to fix....
