97 continental over heats . radiator fans works, we even connected fans directly to batt for cont run. drove about 90 miles with heater on,with full of water,fans runing continously, it still got very hot ...


One thing people tend to look over is the very inexpensive reservoir/overflow tank cap. These tend to lose pressure over time due to heat rotting the seal.

Does both fans need to run on the lincoln continental


one fan is dedicated to the cooling and comes on when it needs to cool the coolant in the radiator, while the other fan is used when you run the air conditioner it helps cool the radiator when you add the workload of cooling the inside of the car. they work seperate from each other, while actually working together.
