    How many miles, and are you using coolant as in do you have to add fluid or water once a week? Does it have electric fans or engine mounted? What type of Lincoln is it?

It could be an air bubble in the system get the car up to normal tempature before it does remove the reservoir cap and if the antifreeze goes down then add until it gets to the hot level in the bottle and put the cap back on right away and then the next thing to check is the drive belt put on a glove check the upper radiator hose by squeezing it together if it opens up in your hand right away this is a good sign your water pump is still good find out the problem as soon as you can cause this an aluminum engine block and most of them do not like heat

2001 Chevy Lumina. Got hot, pulled over. Reservoir was boiling over but radiator cap was cool to the touch. Let it cool off. Check water in radiator and reservoir, needed very little. Started driving and...


Sounds like your thermostat is sticking closed at times, not allowing coolant to circulate through the radiator for proper cooling. Replace thermostat.

Coolant reservoir is overfulling after being driven


It probably got overfilled at some point. There's a max line on the reservoir that you shouldn't fill it over. Coolant expands as it heats up so if there's too much in the system, it's normal for it to overflow.

Radiator replaced on 2000 Volkswagen 2.0 engine not running hot but it still leaking antifreeze out of plastic jug not alot. Then did not replace thermostat.


The plastic jug (Coolant Recovery Reservoir) could have a hairline crack in it or check the small hose that goes from the Radiator neck (Opening) to the Reservior.

The Thermostat would not be an issue in this case.

I have a problem with my 2001 lincoln ls v8, my car heater, I've already changed the thermostat and water pump. When I drive it hot, I came home and antifreeze boils in the reservoir and empties


first thing I would try is to washthe radiator. if too much dirt builds up on the outside of it, it can trap heat inside. id go to a carwash, and spray it with water from the rear, if you can get to it. and be thorough if possible. also, check to see that the cooling fans are working when your engine is hot and running. if not, you may need to replace the fan or fan relay. if that doesnt work either, then you may have either a leaking head gasket,which should be diagnosed with a compression test done by a tech., or you may have an issue with your ignition timing, which would also build up an excessive amount of heat.
