Waterpump is fine engine codes came back as system canister vent circuit malfuntion, disconnected battery to reset engine light worked. Still over heating. There is no radiator cap on this car so please don't say anything about a radiator cap

Engine overheating? Try this procedure:

  • The thermostat can be stuck close. If you feel the upper hose very hot and the lower hose cooler than normal, it may be a stuck thermostat.

  • Make sure the radiator and the overflow bottle are filled to the proper levels.

  • Bleed air from the coolant system:This is best done by running the engine with the radiator cap off until you see when the air bubbles stop coming up.

  • Check the radiator fans: The easiest way is to turn on the cars air conditioner and turn up the A/C fans. Both radiator fans should come on when the A/C starts

  • Make a pressure test by using a pressure testing tool (available at most auto parts stores). Use the pressure shown on your radiator cap. Most cars are 16 PSI or less, so don't exceed that pressure. Replace the radiator cap if it doesn't hold the pressure.

Fan was running fast and leaking antifreeze in my garage. Replaced thermostat which fixed the fan, but I'm still leaking antifreeze. It's smaller amounts, but still leaking. Someone said to replace the radiator cap. Any thoughts?

If the thermostat is placed in bakward it will overheat....and there is a small ball on the the top of the thermostat that helps the car bleed air...if the thermostat was placed in without that little ball on the top...the car has a hard time releasing air to bleed...id have the thermostat replaced again anyway just to make sure its not a faulty one..ok...hope that helps

There is a coolant cap on the overflow bottle check it for seal
i'd just replace it
also if you put the new thermostat in backward the overheating would be significant

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.

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.
