Question about 1997 Lincoln Continental
I had a switch installed for my fans. they come on i have a new radiator and water pump but after driving for about 20 minutes the water pressure forces the water out the reservoir cap . No heat HELP !!
make sure to bleed the air out of the system after you change it.

It looks like you changed everything involving the hot water. When the engine is warm, you should be getting hot water going through the heater core. By holding each hose from the heater core you should feel heat from both hoses. I did not see a new thermostat listed.
You need to also have the ductwork under the dash moving correctly. If you find that the water lines from the heater core are both hot, then you need the (doors) or flaps in the ductwork to route the heat inside. I do not see that anything was looked at under the dash.

undo the clip on the highest hot hose and see if you have any air in the system.
from your list of replacements i see you have not replaced the temp sensor for the fans,to test run a hot wire from the battery to the fan,if it runs then you know they work...unless they run when engine is hot anyway.....

Have you burped the system? If air gets trapped it can prevent the thermostat from opening and make your engine overheat. To get the air out, start with a cold engine, turn the heat on vent or floor only and run full blast, run the engine with the radiator cap off until it gets to operating temperature. Keep an eye on the coolant level and add as needed until it doesn't drop in level for five minutes. Some cars may require removal of the thermostat so you can drill a small hole in it to allow air to escape from the engine side of the thermostat. Keep any eye on the temperature gauge to make sure you don't over heat it while trying to burp it.

SOURCE: I have a 1997 Lincoln Continental. I got the waqter pump replaced & the Radiator. Within a Month time. My Low Coolant light keep ncoming on. So I noticed that Coolant was coming out my Resovoir from a
Unless the recent work was done poorly, it could well be a coincident failure of the head gasket. If this has failed between combustion chamber and coolant paths in the cylinder head, it will push hot gases into the coolant system causing it to heat quickly and cause the problem you are having.
Check the coolant bottle for any sign of oil contamination or the odor of exhaust fumes.Pull the oil dipstick and look for any signs of water/coolant contamination which can cause a creamy deposit on the dipstick.
The thermostat can definitely cause this problem and should have been replaced (they aren't expensive) during the cooling system repair.In some cases, the thermostat can also be installed backward which can also cause higher than normal temperatures although not enough to seriously harm anything.
