My defrost blows but is not clearing out the window seems like blowing hot air out

The Lincoln has a cabin air filter which filters outside air. It is probably plugged therefore the heater can only recirculate the the air inside the car. The results are windshield may clear but most other windows away from the heat stay fogged up.
Try changing the cabin air filter and see if it helps a great deal.

Fogged up windows

Are you using the fresh air option ?
If you are, you could have excessive moisture inside the cabin. Running the hvac on defrost should kick on the ac compressor and bring in fresh air too.

My defroster does not appear to be working properly --it is blowing hot air but windows still are fogged up during rain

Hi. The most common cause of the fogging is the selection of the "recirculate" mode, with the defroster on, on your heater control panel..

The Recirculate mode is the selection where the car has an 'arrow doing a u-turn" in it.
Select the other mode (which is the 'Fresh' mode);
the car 'with an arrow running thru it'.

Recirculate mode is ONLY for use with the AC on.
Always use Fresh with the heater and the defroster.

That was a very good question, and one that I receive quite often.
The owner's manual does not explain this very well.

Front window defroster note working

Was there a smell along with it fogging up the window like antifreeze? If it did the heater core is leaking and needs to be replaced. It will be kind of a sweet smell.

The inside of the car fogs up and on very cold mornings ice forms

This can be caused by a heater core that is leaking inside the car, one way to determine if that's the problem, is if you can smell antifreeze. It is a 'sweet' smell, and is quite noticeable. If u don't notice this, I have to say this is a common problem w/ Hondas. I've had a civic, 2 accords (currently have a 92), and 2 Preludes, they are great cars, but they all suffer from fogged up windows in cold weather. One reason is that they are quite air tight, and the older models don't have the greatest defroster system (weak). Try and keep a window cracked open slightly, see if that helps.
