SOURCE: where do you fill radiator on 02 taurus ses?

YES. But dont overfill it. Slowly add coolant to the low full line and let it run a while, like 10 minutes. if the level goes down fill it to the full line. After it cools for 30 minutes recheck the level and add as needed.

SOURCE: Radiator Reserve Tank

Your engine is pressurizing the coolant system through a leak in the head-gasket, it could be airgaps but I'm going to be your head gasket needs replacement.

SOURCE: transmission fluid in radiator reserve tank

It could be and inspect your transmission fluid and have it serviced if it is the transmission fluid and also your engine oil. Engine coolant is corrosive to the bearings in your transmission and engine and can cause you to loose which ever you have cross contamination with.
If it's transmission fluid, then you'll loose your transmission is not corrected and if it's engine oil. Then your going to loose the engine shortly if not corrected.
Sorry for the bad news and thank you for using fixya.

How to bleed cooling system on a 2000 Lincoln continental

The generic way is to raise the front of the car as high as possible, fill the coolant recovery/surge tank all the way to the top and then run the engine until it reaches operating temperature, do not overheat this engine! Now shut the engine down and let it cool off, you can run cold water over the radiator to speed the cool down, it will gravity self bleed, repeat as needed.

I want to add transmission fluid, but where does it go. i dont see the tank location in the manual

The trans fluid is filled by adding the fluid down the trans dipstick tube.Get the vehicle up to operating temp.Now.With the car parked,run through all the gears and finish in neutral.This is with the engine running.You now check the trans fluid level.The bottle the fluid comes in will(or should)have a tube at the nozzle.Use this to get the fluid into the dipstick tube.Hope this helps

My coolant is filling up with transmition fluid why?

Transmission fluid is sometimes cooled by way of a seperate internal tank within your radiator, the fluid is passed through hoses and steel or aluminum tubes from the transmission to the radiator, as the fluid flows thru the internal tank within the radiator it transfers heat from the fluid into the coolant within the radiator which then exchanges the heat from the coolant thru the radiator fins and into the ambiant air around the radiator.
That being said, if the internal transmission fluid tank or the connections at or within the radiator develop some sort of leak, the two fluids(coolant and transmission fluid) will mix and will show up where it shouldn't be! You may have an internal leak within the radiator, which means the radiator needs to be replaced.
Good Luck!

2000 Lincoln Continental. Won't fill with gas without pump clicking off every 20 cents worth . No matter which pump I fill at. Happens always. No accidents ever with this car. No visible kinks in both...

this car has a closed fuel system,and the air pressure coming back out the filler tube is shutting off the pump,only answer is hold the gun and fill not over fill.
