Question about 2002 Lincoln LS
I have a '02 Lincoln Ls with 77k miles. Since last July (08) driving home on highway it started overheating. Took it to my regular mechanic as check engine light was on and he told me that I had a blown head gasket. Apprently, the computer told him that there was a misfire in one of the cylinders. Took it to second mechanic... He tested the block and determined that there was no blow head gasket. Replaced the hydrulic fan, changed hydrulic fluid/oil, serviced the cooling system, changed the thermostat and basically told me it has him baffled. He could not find anything wrong with the car! Took it to the local FORD dealer, (yesterday) was told that there was a air pocket in the cooling system so they bled the system. It did not fix the problem. The car is still overheating. Yet it is only intermittent, and no check engine light appears. I have put alot of money into this car and still have the problem. I can tell when it's going to overheat as there is distinct sound like a whining noise from the fan area and boom it overheats. I have to pull over or turn on the heating system to help bring the temp down. Today it happened on the highway I pulled over, turned the car off, waited 5 minutes and the cars temp was back in the normal range. I am completely frustrated and need help. Any help you can give me would be so appreciated. Thanks I'm having a similar problem but mine never has a check engine light or overheat light or anything. The fan just run a very high speed in an attemp, I assume, to keep the engine cool. Mine is a 2004, any suggestions?
