Question about 2010 Lincoln MKZ
After 1st few weeks of sloshing sound, car overheated, transmission fluid was found in radiator, and radiator was replaced. Sloshing sound continued regardless. Few months later car stopped on freeway exit. Could not be restarted. Had to be towed. Radiator fluid was found in transmission. Both radiator and transmission were replaced. No sloshing sound heard and no problems for 6 months. Now sloshing sound resumes again. What can be the cause?

SOURCE: temperature control
The radiator cap is at the radiator where you refill the radiator with coolant. Unless it is leaking and you hear a hiss. It may not have anything wrong.Neither will the water pump.If the water pump is bad. It has a small hole that will make it start leaking .Check the engine for leaks at the intake or the water pump.You will know where it is leaking. When the thermostat was removed and hopefully replaced , did you bleed the system ? The system has to be bled to remove air pockets. Or the engine will overheat again. Also check that the radiator fan or fans is turning on . If not you may need to replace the temperature control sensor.(TPS)

SOURCE: 2002 Lincoln LS overheating
The cooling fan on the LS-V8 is hydraulic yes. But it also has a pressure switch on the pump that drives the fan. It is controlled by the temperature sensor. All these things must be taken into account. But the whining sound my lead me to believe that the pump is either low on fluid or is wearing out. The fluid the fan pump uses is the same as the power steering pump container so check it first. The same thing happened to my wife's Lincoln. I replaced the fan as well because everybody told me to do that but it didn't work. I found out that the fan is just a hydraulic motor in reverse it only spins as fast as the pump makes it spin and that is controlled by the temp. sensors. When the engine get's hotter the pressure goes up and the fan spins faster. This adds more power to the engine when it's running cooler because the fan doesn't have to spin at max speed. So good luck. I hope this has solved your problem.

If it was overfilled this could happen. Check the level according to instructions in your owner's manual. If it is overfull, remove enough to get it back to the correct level. Overheating will cause the fluid to expand but unlikely it will leak unless it was overfilled. I would suspect too much fluid was added.
