I'm changing the thermostat housing unit on my 2002 Lincoln ls 3.9 I heard that after replacing I have to bleed the air out the lines... Is it true? and if it is how do I do it...

Install the coolant slowly with the bolts not tightened on the thermostat housing. When coolant is seen at the therm. housing, tighten the mounting bolts. That should insure that the engine is full of coolant.

Heater on my 2001 Lincoln LS blowing cool air. Engine fan keeps coming on. Temp gauge goes up to highest level, then returns to midpoint. Does not overheat. Are all of these things tied together and how...

Yes more then likely it's all tied together... Check the coolant level it's probably low or you need to bleed the air out of the cooling system...

If I read correctly, you said you changed DCCV, did you bleed the air out of the system? If not this will cause this as well.

2003 lincoln aviator water boiling and car overheating

Check to coolant level after it cools off and check to see if coolant-water mixture is correct. If those are ok. You could have to much air in the coolant system. Most radiator caps will automatically vent the air out of the coolant system. It could be as simple as a coolant cap that gone bad. Or you may have a air bleed valve on it and you need to bleed the air out manually. To bleed it you will have to crank engine and get it warm. Touch top radiator hose to see if its warm. If not then the thermostat has not opened yet. That could also be the problem. After it gets warm open the bleeder valve if equipped and bleed all the air out. Once the steam and hot air from the valve starts to be gone and pure coolant coming from the valve. You have successfully bleed the coolant system. Cool engine back off and check coolant level once more. Hope this helps.

Just got the thermostat fixed, so my engine does'nt over heat, but my engine coolant still bubbles when I turn the car off.

the LS are tough
maybe the garage you went to was unaware of the bleeding sequence of the cooling system

I'd say wait at least a day or two and if still no change go back to where the vehicle was serviced and DEMAND and second repair for FREE

additionally, the thermostat is only replaceable and NOT repairable

if they told you they "repaired" the thermostat question, in DETAIL, what they did!

2000 lincoln ls - where is the cooling system overflow container?

I believe it's on the drives side at the fire wall by the hood hinge. It's actually called a degas bottle because coolant flows through it under pressure to onstantly bleed air from the system. Be sure to tighten it as the cap states so it does not leak air in.

2000 Lincoln ls overheating

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.
