You have a stuck air temperature control blend door problem. The blend door is what moves to divert air across the heater core and AC core to heat or coll the air or a combination of the hot and cold air streams, to blend them. To replace the part requires that the dash be removed from car as the door is located in the production.

SOURCE: where is the thermostat located on a 1997 lincoln

thermostat is located in the radiator to block hose. if you look directly under the power steering reservoir you should see it.
The thermostat has 3 hoses running from it. 2 are approx. 1.5" in dia and 1 is approx .750" in dia. The .750" hose leads up to the coolant reservoir. and yes it is under the power steering reservoir

1997 Lincoln Town Car anti theft system won't set. parking lights blink off and on when I turn car off.What could be the source of this problem?

Anti-Theft System NOTE: The system immediately monitors the ignition switch lock cylinder (11582) upon removal of the key from the ignition switch lock cylinder. It is not necessary to arm the system for ignition switch lock cylinder monitoring.
  • Damaged luggage compartment door lock cylinder.
  • Damaged hood ajar switch or bracket.
  • Open fuses: Fuse junction panel:
    • Fuse 4 (15A)
    • Fuse 6 (10A)
    • Fuse 9 (5A)
    • Fuse 15 (15A)
    • Circuit Breaker 12 (18A)
  • Loose connections
  • Corroded connections
  • Damaged switches
  • Damaged relay(s)
  1. If inspection reveals an obvious concern that is readily serviced, correct the concern before continuing with Inspection and Verification.
  1. If the concern remains after the inspection, connect the Rotunda New Generation Star (NGS) Tester 007-00500 or equivalent to the data link connector (DLC) located beneath the instrument panel to perform the Data Link Diagnostics Test. If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for the lighting control module, go to Pinpoint Test A . If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for the driver door module, go to Pinpoint Test B . If the Data Link Diagnostic test is passed for the lighting control module and driver door module, retrieve continuous DTCs and execute self test diagnostics.
  1. If self test is passed and no DTCs are retrieved, go to the Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.
  1. If DTCs are retrieved for the driver door module, go to the Driver Door Module Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.
  1. If DTCs are retrieved for the lighting control module, go to the Lighting Control Module Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.
  1. If the lighting control module cannot be accessed by the NGS tester, go to Pinpoint Test A . If the driver door module cannot be accessed by the NGS tester, go to Pinpoint Test B .
Rotunda Service Bay Diagnostic System (SBDS®) 001-00001 may also be used to diagnose this system.
There are a great deal of components involved here an the best way to tell what's working or not is have a scan tool hooked up to check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes !
There is a lot

These are the files for your Year of car. Can not say if the link will work on this media. If it does not work, do a Browser using these terms 1993 LTC EATC self-test procedures, or similar. The 1993 is the 1st of a group to 1997 or 1998 that have similar systems. So they would activate the same way. There is a good post for 1996 LTC on that has Code definitions.

I have a P0456 code on my 2003 Ford Expedition. Where is the vapor purge solenoid or the canister?

The information you are asking for varies depending on how the vehicle is equipped ie. ENGINE SIZE, AUTOMATIC or MANUAL TRANSMISSION, 2-WHEEL DRIVE, 4-WHEEL DRIVE, ALL-WHEEL DRIVE, etc.
With that said, it also deserves mention that there is a Technical Service Bulletin published by Ford Motor Company that applies to the model year and model that you have listed that involves Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0456.

Please note that this bulletin emphasizes the requirement of special equipment to properly diagnose and repair the DTC's listed in the bulletin. Below is a brief (partial) description of the bulletin:

This article supersedes TSB 03-9-8 to update the vehicle lines and Service Procedures.
Some vehicles may exhibit a Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illuminated with Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) P0442, P0455, P0456, P0457 or P1442 or a "Check Fuel Cap" Lamp illuminated with DTC P0457 for the Evaporative Emission System. This may be caused by loose or leaking hoses, loose or broken fuel cap, a leak at the top of the fuel filler pipe neck, etc.
Use the Rotunda Leak Detector Smoke Machine (Part 218-00001) or equivalent, to locate and repair leaks in the Evaporative Emission System.

How do you read the code on a 1997 Lincoln mark 8

Codes are read by hooking up a scanner to the OBDII portal located under the dash on the driver side. There is no other way to read codes on an OBDII system, which were mandated on all cars sold in America from 1996 on.

90 lincoln was running hot 3 yrs ago,and no heat just replaced head gasket,heads pass pressure test,no cracks in heads, head gasket was bad,still no heat,heater hoses hot, pressure test cooling system...

Have you even considered the heater core? Have the heater core checked/replaced. As for the top hose collapsing...that is not good. Have the entire system checked out by a qualified mechanic.
