SOURCE: 2000 Lincoln ls overheating
There is a hose on the side of the coolant resevoir that has a straight blade screwdriver fitting in it. Open the fitting and this will bleed the heads on the LS. Without opening this you will never get the air out of the head, trust me.

Sometimes a vacuum leak can cause the engine to run lean and hot, Have Auto Zone run a free code check on the car to search for a stored trouble codes this may help.

the fan speed could be one problem...the other problem could be wth the radiatr cores being blocked..check whether the heat on your radiator is even front top to bottom and on all sides...if it is not, clean the radiator and check for the problem

SOURCE: 2000 lincoln ls 3.9 overheating
Do a radiator pressure test, tools can be purchased at the local auto parts store. It may be that tyou have a blown headgasket and it builds an airpocket below the thermostat and will insulate it and not allow it to open. Another way to test is to take off thermostat housing and pull thermostat and start engine but do not rev it up. Water must be to top of housing... In some cases if air bubbles appear it will mean blown head gasket... The problem with this is it may only happen when engine is at operating temperature. Car can be driven and warmed up in first method, pressure will always rise but if it rises quickly it would be head gasket.
