2002 lincoln. Ls v8.. burning smell?? Tried to run hot after 15min drive at a red light but when i took off went back to half way? Keeps running hot??

Engine is too hot which is burning oil and road dirt off the engine. Sounds like a bad thermostat or a water pump problem. The radiator may be partially blocked too.

Our car shuts off when I come to a stop after it runs for a while. Both the radiator and fan were replaced. As well as fuel injectors, pcv valve and basic tune up.

Are you saying the engine overheats and then shuts off ?
Did you replace the thermostat and is the radiator full of coolant ?

Volkswagen passat 2002 overheats when in traffic/stationary

Your mechanic is not necessarily wrong. What he changed were the easily changed items to stop overheating-things recommended by all mechanics. Since that didn't help, you will have to dig further. What you need to do now is have the engine checked for a head gasket failure.

My car starts to overheat if I'm stuck in traffic, but runs fine otherwise, the needle safely on the cooler side of halfway. Today the speedometer needle stopped working and also the tachometer (digital...

You may have low coolant due to a leaking cooling system. Check the fluid level. You may have a faulty radiator fan. The fan should kick on an run from electric current when you are in traffic and if it does not then the thermostat for the fan may be bad. You may also have a blocked radiator so water may not be circulating properly. I don't know of the gauges, but the expense would be pricey due to the labor to remove the portion of the dash to get the instrument cluster out and the repair to the cluster would probably run around $150 if it is an average electronics failure.

It really does overheat a lot when in traffic.

You need to check youe water pump, thermostat and your radiator cap and if all of that is good it sounds like a blown headgasket.

Vw passat 03 overheats when ac is on in peak traffic/stationary

since the water pump was replaced, make sure you don't have an air pocket in the cooling system. flush your cooling system again. remember, if all was well before the tune up/preventative maintanance, it's within those items that were replaced. I don't think it's the condensor, thats a/c related, but the radiator and water pump, well those can cause overheating problems. when the system overheats, you will feel it in the ac.
