Couple of items you need to check. Make sure that your radiator is flowing properly. Often after sitting dry, blockages harden up and flow less than before, overheat originally before repair can also free up debris inside engine and add to plugging of core. Make sure that fans are operating especially with ac on. If you did not change thermostat during repair, change it. Not often but they can sometimes partially open, restricting flow. Also make sure that coolant is at correct concentration (50/50) and that there is no air trapped in the system.

Fans are not coming on for the radiator so when your at a stop no air is flowing through the radiator. Check to make sure the fans are kicking on before the car starts to overheat.

if its a 3.8 v6 then check the EGR valve. the egr valve will get a hole in it an cause a huge vacuumn leak, and cause that. untill you take it in you can plug the vacuumn hose that goes to the EGR valve on the intake manifold, fix it soon.

Very common problem is about a dime size hole wearing in the rubber elbow on the PCV valve located on the driver side rear of the intake manifold.

Where is the thermostat located on a 1996 Lincoln Town Car?

The thermostat is in the housing bolted to the intake that the upper radiator hose goes to. Check the Intake manifold for leaks, these are prone to cracking the Intake. Check the front crossover behind the alternator and check the rear where the heater hose is hooked.
