    Outstanding outcome, I took the car back to the shop and explain the problem. They made the statement that there was air in the system and they repeated the service at no cost to me. The heater works just fine now. I really like my Crown Vic. its not the best looking car however the performance and ride on these cars are outstanding.

Take cap off rad when cool enough to do so. Start the car with cap off & heater turned on,(not defrost) and let it run for a while, as in wait for rad fan to come on 2 or 3 times. Add coolant/mix as needed while doing so. My guess is that you have an air lock in cooling/heating system that hasn't been bled out yet. Once in a while just rev engine a little, for about 30-second to 1 minute to increase flow through system, to help bleed & circulation. You should start to feel heat coming. Only put rad cap back on after rad fan has come on after 2nd or 3rd time. Check return bottle & fill it to mark as specified. If that doesn't do it, take it back to guy who flushed it, he should know what he did wrong.

Jeep is overheating when towing at 60mph is it a thermostat fault thanks


Hello
Welcome!
Yes the thermostat could be the fault also check to see if there is a coolent problom in the radator, after it has warmed up shut the jeep off and check the radator for cold spots, If your noticing the radator has cold spots then that should be removed and boild out so it is working properly.

1998 crown vic air suspension compressor does not pump.


Sounds like the problem is in the air bag suspension, not the compressor. The air bags shouldn't be losing air when the car sits. The compressor adjusts the suspension level according to the load. The air bags have a valve similar to a blow up raft that allows air to pass through both ways. If when the car is running the compressor is constantly running and not turning off, the issue is within the air bags and/or the air line.

they radiator flush has created a blockage in the heater core that creates the heat. you dont want to replace this part because it can get $$$$. i would take it back to the shop and have them try the service again( at no charge) to see if it can remove the block
