Sounds like a good answer and unfortunately one that may apply to me as my Crowne Vic has started to run hot. I believe you mean that it is not a job for a novice, not a "novas."

Before you get into this involved job I have a few suggestions. First is the pump leaking causing the system to lose coolant. Grab the fan and try to move it from side to side to see if there is play. Next when was the last time the thermostat was changed out. The thermostat can be stuck in a way as to restrict water flow. Another cause of over heating is a clogged radiator. Older cars can have a slug build up in the radiator core causing a significant cooling lose.
Water pumps on a Crown Vic is located on the front of the engine behind the fan. You should really get a service manual as there are a lot of steps in this job that must be done correctly to avoid future problems.
You start by draining the entire cooling system by opening up the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator. This antifreeze must be disposed of properly by taking it to a repair shop for pick up. Next remove the fan guard followed by disconnecting all the belts. Some people remove the radiator to gain working room. before removing the radiator disconnect the lower hose and the upper hose to the engine. The transmission oil cooling lines are next. Now remove all the bolts holding the radiator in place. As you can see this is not a job for a novas. If you are not mechanically inclined this could be a nightmare of a job.

2000 crown victoria overheats with ac off

The AC runs the fan that cools the AC condenser and the radiator. You may have a problem with the cooling fan for the engine only or its control circuit, this fan is controlled by the main computer in the car called the PCM, you need the dealer to perform a test that operates the cooling fan and delivers back fault codes for any problems found with its operation.

Why does my engine keep geting hot

Please check the pressure cap on the radiator. Also if the water pump is faulty there will be low circulation. Also a leak on the radiator or the hose can reduce water and this must be checked if the coolant reduces in a day.
Finally the TIMING of the IGNITION is important. Check for free movement in all wheels, there must not be any brake jamming.
Also the belt must be checked to be of correct tension.
