Change the thermostat. it is located at the end of the a radiator hose. The hose attaches to the thermostat housing outlet . The thermostat is under the housing. Also have it scanned for a trouble code . It could be the temperature control sensor.

The coolant bottle might have a small crack in it, i had the same problem for about over a year, its about 150$ and you can only get it from the dealer.

What would cause the top radiator hose on 2005 lincoln ls v8 to blow out for a second day in a row after replacing it for just the same reason?


Overheating due to bad thermostat or bad radiator cap could cause the problem. The radiator cap vents excessive pressure to the overflow container which should also have fluid in it at all times.

Car run hot what is the problem


First thing to check is probably a stuck thermostat. Then the water pump. Head leak. The price and ease of most thermostats is usually replaced first, then further troubleshooting if needed.

have you ever checked whether the radiator is blogged? or the water pump does circulate the water? or even check whether the matrix is not blogged.

Lincoln ls car is still running hot after changing thermostat


First when car is running hot stop and pop the hood check and see if the electric cooling fans are running. Second have your radiator cap checked, replace if bad. If neither or these are the issue, with the engine cold start it up and remove the radiator cap. It will take a couple minutes for the engine to warm up enough to open the thermostat. After it gets warm enough that your thermostat opens, (5 to 10 minutes) you should see the fluid in the radiator start to circulate. If this doesn't happen your water pump is out and needs to be replaced. Back to the first thing if your fans aren't kicking on check all your fuses in your engine compartment first. If you narrow down the problem to one of these and need more assistance, just reply to this comment and I will help you further.

You have air in the system
It may work it's way out to the
recovery bottle over time as
it cools and draws in more cool,
so keep container full

I"m not sure if you have a vent hose
to bleed my lincoln ls does

Remove the radiator cap,warm up
when thermostat opens add more
coolant 50/50 or 60/40 Yellow GO5 I

My heater is set to 90 degrees and its blowing cold air


you may have a clogged heater-core or low fluid levels in the radiator if one of the hoses going into the core is hot and the other is cold then it is most likely clogged undo both lines and facing the one down so not to get splatted with it use a hose and with minor pressure wash the gooey obstruction out until it runs clean and clear and flows free or you may also have a bad water pump open the radiator cap and with the car running look to see if its full and flowing and circulating if low add fluid if its not flowing i would say the water pump but give it enough time to exchange from the block to the radiator and if flowing replace cap or risk getting burnt ...also it could be the heat coils are not giving any help there should be a plug wire going into the unit near the fan /air-box remove the 2 screws and see it it turns red hot when switched on and also use a test light to ensure power is getting to it

you probably have air trapped in the system. Have dealer or radiator shop bleed system.

I assume your cooling fan is working.

SECTION 303-03: Engine Cooling 2001 Lincoln LS Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Engine Cooling The cooling system components include the:
  • block heater (optional)
  • cylinder head temperature sensor
  • fan blade, fan motor and fan shroud assembly
  • radiator
  • pressure relief cap
  • degas bottle
  • radiator draincock
  • water pump
  • oil cooler (optional)
  • water thermostat
The water thermostat:
  • controls the engine coolant temperature.
  • allows quicker engine warm-up.
The degas bottle:
  • provides a location for system fill.
  • contains coolant expansion and system pressurization.
  • provides air separation during operation.
  • replenishes the engine coolant to the system.
The fan blade draws air through the radiator to help cool the engine coolant.
The fan motor:
  • operates only when the engine is running.
  • will not operate when the engine is off.
The engine coolant flows:
  • from the lower radiator hose to the water pump.
  • from the water pump to the engine block and the cylinder heads.
A closed water thermostat returns the engine coolant to the water pump. An open water thermostat allows the engine coolant to flow to the radiator.
Unsatisfactory coolant materials:
  • Alcohol-type antifreeze does not provide adequate water pump lubrication.
    • has lower boiling point
    • reduced antifreeze protection
  • Alkaline brine solutions will cause serious engine cooling system damage.
The cylinder head temperature sensor provides a signal to the temperature gauge.
  • will invoke failsafe cooling.
The optional block heater:
  • electrical heating element is installed in the block cooling jacket.
    • uses a standard 110V (220V in Europe) electrical supply
  • keeps the engine coolant warm during cold weather.
The auxiliary water pump (3.9L only):
  • provides heater coolant flow boost.
  • has a secondary function of providing engine-off cooling.
