Do a Google search using the term "2000 Lincoln Town car lower thermostat housing". Looks like this problem can escalate into you needing a new intake manifold. I would try J-B weld if you can get on the backside of the leaking area.

SOURCE: 2000 lincoln ls heater not working...thermostat?

- If temp guage reads normal, the lack of heat may be due to the Heater Control Valve. Located in front of the radiator. Lower passenger side. A real bugger to replace.
- The plastic cap just over the thermostat is key in re-filling the anti freeze and bleeding air.

SOURCE: Lincoln Town Car 1999 driver side window switch

I have the same problem in my 2001 towncar. I removed the switch control panel (without removing the door panel) by prying up from the front of the panel. There's a spring loaded plug under the mirror adjustment. Once you get that pulled up, the whole unit will lift out. Since there's a two year difference in the models - it MAY not work... however, you might not have to remove the whole door panel as you think.
In my case, the wiring was bad.

Water\coolant leaking from engine after shutting engine down


It takes a lot more than a small leak to consider your engine as "totaled"
Have the system pressure tested and carefully inspected. Every leak has a source. some are easy to find, some are a bit more difficult. A shop can use a fluorescent dye and a black light to locate the source if you can't.
I'd check the corners of the intake manifold and timing chain housing. Also, check the hoses again. A small pin-hole can squirt coolant far away from the hole itself and is often very difficult to see.

Thermostat - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION

If the replacement thermostat is equipped with a &inch;jiggle pin&inch;, the pin must be install facing upwards toward the top of the engine (12 o'clock), and should be on the side facing the water outlet. When installing the thermostat gasket, the seal print side should face the cylinder head.
2.2L Engine
See Figure 1
  1. Drain enough coolant to bring the coolant level down below the thermostat housing. the thermostat housing is located on the left front side of the cylinder block.


CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethelyne glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  1. Disconnect the temperature sending unit wire.
  2. Remove the coolant outlet elbow.
  3. If so equipped, position the vacuum control valve out of the way. The vacuum control valve is not used on California trucks.
  4. Disconnect the coolant by-pass hose from the thermostat housing.
  5. Remove the thermostat and housing from the engine.
  6. Note the position of the jiggle pin and remove the thermostat from the housing.
  7. Remove all gasket material from the parts.

To install:

  1. Position the thermostat in the housing with the jiggle pin up. Coat a new gasket with sealer and install it on the thermostat housing.
  2. Install the thermostat housing using a new gasket with water resistant sealer. Tighten the bolts to 14-19 ft. lbs. (19-25 Nm).
  3. Install the coolant outlet elbow and vacuum control valve (if equipped).
  4. Connect the by-pass and radiator hoses.
  5. Connect the temperature sending unit wire.
  6. Fill the cooling system with the proper coolant. Operate the engine and check the coolant lever. Check for leaks.

Leaking coolant from a small hole located in the block right under the thermostat housing coolant inlet. we removed housing and gasket replaced gasket and installed, leaks from small hole?


water pump failure, water pump on these run off the timing chain and the timing chain runs in oil, so they could not just put a weep hole on the pump because it would go strait to the oil pan, instead they redirected the coolant from the leaking pump to just below the thermostat housing. And good luck, it's at least a 6 hour job on these. Brandon-MO

Where can i find the thermostat on 1986 gmc jimmy


Follow the upper radiator hose to the outlet elbow (the waterneck!) and it is located under it:

Removal & Installation
  1. Drain the radiator until the coolant level is below the thermostat level (below the level of the intake manifold).
CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

  1. Remove the water outlet elbow assembly from the engine. Remove the thermostat from inside the elbow.
  2. Install new thermostat in the reverse order of removal, making sure the spring side is inserted into the elbow. Clean the gasket surfaces on the water outlet elbow and the intake manifold. Use a new gasket when installing the elbow to the manifold. On later models the thermostat housing may have been sealed with RTV sealant. If so, place a 1/8 inch bead of RTV sealer all around the thermostat housing sealing surface on the intake manifold and install the housing while it is still wet. Refill the radiator to approximately 21/2 inch below the filler neck.
If the thermostat is equipped with a pin hole, be sure to install pin side facing upwards.

Where is the thermostat


The thermostat is located on the left side rear of the engine at the end of the lower radiator hose. There are three bolts in a triangular bolt pattern fastening the thermostat housing cap to the housing body. The cap also has the coolant sensor in it. The orientation of the thermostat is critical. There are a pair of holes that locate the gasket pins in the main engine body. The by-pass rivet(the floating pin on the flange of the thermostat)is located between those holes.

Go to the below link and get a video for the thermostat removal.
