Question about 1998 Lincoln Continental
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.

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

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.

> Thought I had a air bubble but it has ran over fours off and on with the breather cap on the manifold open and still nothing.
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.
