There are electric cooling fans which have Relays and the fans themselves can break. These are triggered by separate heat sensors other than the one that controls the dash indicator.

Once you add coolant, if it stays full, you are okay for water volume. But water alone does not cool the engine. The electric cooling fans are just as important.

If the coolant level drops again, there are 2 potential problems for the loss. A leak or boiling over. You can tape a paper towel around the overflow tube discharge at the bottom of the car to verify that the water is being lost out the overflow.

Another thing to consider is that the cooling fans may have 2 speeds and high speed may not be working.

SOURCE: replace rear brake light bulb 1998 lincoln continental

pop the trunk and right behind where the lights are pull the carpet down and their will be of the following depending on the trim.

You will either see the light sockets themselves that you can twist and pull to change the bulb, or you will see the plastic nuts/screws that you can remove to remove the entire assembly in order to access the bulbs.

If it's your 3rd brake light, the screws to access the housing are located in the upper part of the trunk

SOURCE: just had car dealership repair 1997 lincoln town air ride

Those Lincolns are notorious for that,I'd just get a set of coil springs out of a Crown Victoria cop car(junk yard)and swap them out.Done it many times,you can do it in about an hour,and they'll never leak down again.By the way,there's some O-rings in that system.Make some soapy water and spray every connection,just maybe you'll get lucky.

This doesn't have much to do with the cooling system; you need to bleed either at the radiator cap (if your car still has one) or multiple cycles of cold-hot with the overflow open and refilling it as it drops. If with a cap, it is simpler; open the cap on a cold engine and observe the level while the engine warms up; once the coolant starts to flow, you should see the level drop and replenish until it no longer drops.
After you have done this, if your engine is still overheating, you may have a head gasket failure between combustion chamber and coolant channels. Even with this problem, you should have heat from the heater core.

Engine or hydraulic system overheating clearpix.gif clearpix.gif clearpix.gif clearpix.gif clearpix.gif clearpix.gif Coolant system low on coolant in 6020, 6030, 6030 Premium, 7020, 7030 and
7030 Premium Series Tractors.

]clearpix.gif//-->
Symptoms
After several hours of work, warning system indicates hot engine coolant or hot hydraulic oil.
Situation or Problem
Coolant level in reservoir is between the "MIN" and "MAX" range but engine or hydraulic system is overheating.
Summary
Air is entering cooling system, hindering coolant flow. Check coolant level. Fill to the "MAX" line on the coolant reservoir.
Bleeding Cooling System:
The bleed valve (see Operator's Manual for location) on the radiator must be closed when the tractor is operating. Open the valve when coolant is drained or filled. If the bleed valve is left open, coolant will internally bypass between the low temperature circuit and engine high temperature circuit causing overheating. When bleeding the system, open the bleed valve and run the engine with no load for 5 minutes at 1700 rpm. Then shut engine off for 5 to 10 minutes before closing the drain valve. Check the coolant level. If level is below the "MAX" fill line, repeat this procedure until coolant level stays at the "MAX" line.

1996LINCOLN MACH III LOW COOLANT MESSAGE AND OVER HEAT x2


Sounds like sticking thermostat. Replace thermostat if you see no leaks anywhere else.
You need to drain out any bad coolant or water when you replace thermostat and refill with concentrated antifreeze until you have at least 50% antifreeze water ratio.
You have to bleed the engine with new antifreeze solution so there's no air. I always go to youtube and see how mechanics do each engine bleed. Search your car and engine and `coolant flush'. don-ohio

After a have changed thermostat on my lincoln continental 1998 - the coolant houses are full with air.... what it could be?? and the coolant is getting hot very fast


You need to bleed the air from the cooling system. To do this raise the front of the car as high as possible and fill the coolant bottle completely full, run the engine until it gets to high side of normal temp but do not overheat it, shut it off and run cold water over the radiator to pull the coolant in and expel the air from the system.

Engine hot


First of all you need to check your coolant return bottle level, it's probably low, and needs coolant added. Heater will be starved for coolant, if level is low, thus, cool/cold air comes out. Try to add when engine is cool, to avoid getting sprayed with hot coolant. Leave cap off for a while, turn your heater on (not defrost) and let engine run up to temperature, and add more as needed while you watch level. Rev engine slightly and hold it for 5 seconds or so, every once in a while to help circulate coolant, and remove any air in system. If you have an actual rad cap, that you can remove and watch flow in radiator, that's even better, for adding and bleeding air out same way. Make sure your rad fan is working as well, and once you get it topped up, and heat back working, I'd seriously consider having a system pressure test done, as you obviously have a leak somewhere if the level went down to the point of overheating, and heater was starved for coolant. Keep an eye on that return bottle level until such time you have it checked, to avoid more damage to engine.

Check to see if the heater control valve is not opening,feel bot hoses,and they should behot to the touch.Did you bleed the air out of the cooling system?Coolant will not circulate if this is not done.
