Question about 2002 Lincoln LS

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Lincoln LS thinks it is overheating - not.

I have a 2002 Lincoln LS with a V8 3.9 engine. When I am
driving randomly you can hear the fan roar and the temperature gauge goes
to max but the car is not really overheating. Then the engine goes into a
"get home" mode. When I turn off the car and turn it on, everything goes
back to normal. I had the car at a Ford dealer for 4 days and they said
that it may be the coils (a coil may be failing) or alternator giving off
radio waves but could not fix the problem. Have you heard of this
happening? Also, could you please tell me how long it should take to check the coils and alternator

    There is nothing in your description that suggests a check of the alternator or a coil.s

If it was me i would checkout the temp-sensor by the thermostat housing and it should not take longer then an hour to checkout the coil and the alternator also make sure the car has the right amount of cooling in it if it does not have sometime the car will ask this way too. you may want to try this website to see if they have you car listed if they do it may show you how to test it yourself it www.autozone.com nice car you have.

I don't think that it will let you play a DVD while driving. That is a bad idea.

better check your oil and make sure yu arent getting water in it first. is it running rough at all? 2 things come to mind-an air lock which should cause it to overheat or a bad head gasket causing the air bubbles

2002 Lincoln LS overheating


Hi there:Are you check coolant level? Also, there some TSB about some vehicles Lincoln LS 2001-2002 may exhibit an engine overheating condition and/or the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) may also be illuminated with codes P1285 and P1299 stored in memory. This may be caused by an inoperative Hydraulic Cooling Fan (HCF). Ask your dealer about TSB Article No. 01-21-11 / 10/29/01.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I have a 2002 Lincoln LS. I've owned it for


I have put my lincoln ls in shop 5 times almost once year for over heating.. first 3 times they replaced the fan motor and fan.. worked for few months and went out again in 2 years have had 3 fan motors. Finally over heated again and they said it was radiator.. so for 800.00 they put in new radiator and as wife was driving car home it overheated.. OMG how insane and they would not refund.. so they took car back in and said it was the water pump.. guess what the so called water pump is really a Hydraulic pump.. so they changed it, fan motor, and new radiator..
Now have all this new and one year exactly car is over heating again.... Solution Get rid of the LS or all us complain to lincoln and for this car is a LEMON....
