I have a 04 lincoln ls 3.0. when driving i dont seem to lose coolant but as soon as i turn the car off i here the system bubbling then all the coolant comes out from underneath on the driver side. wha

Already bled the coolant system, temperature guage doesnt go above normal, before engine warms up it idles very low almost where she stalls out and sometimes it feels like shes surging. oil also has a strong fuel odor to it.

You have a leak! Take to a garage where they can pressure test the cooling system and find the leak! After running the pressure builds up so when you turn the engine off it expels the coolant through the leak but while running it flows past the leak!

take the cap off of the radiator (whil engine is cold) start and run the vehicle. keep runnig 30mins after the vehicle is hot keeping notice of the rad fluid level.
keeping the cap off will prevent the pressure build up that woiuld keep the air in the system, keep adding water or antifreeze as the level goes down. this may take an hour or so.
also with the cap off, you will be able to see if your water pump is operating correctly. you will visibly be able to see movement in the rad when the pum is engaged.

SOURCE: Why does my 91 VW Jetta stall out and lose power while driving?

I had a similar problem and the mechanic diagnosed it as a problem with the ignition coil. So you might want to get that checked.

1.Verify that the cooling system is full of coolant and there is no air in it. 2. Remove the air boot from the throttle body and cover the throttle body with something that will stop the airflow . the Fast Idle Valve is the problem.

04 Lincoln Ls engine codes p2104 p2112,wrench on dashboardso I drove it without problems went to Autozone to put computer scanner on car wrench came back on dash now can only drive 6 mph no go


Check coil #3 on v6 and #4 on v8. Usually the coil closet to passenger read side of engine. You probably dont feel a misfire, but put the car in drive and firmly hold brakes down. Rev to about 2k or 3k rmps. If it stutters thats your issue.

Heater not working


What you need to do is burp the system it is very common on the Lincoln LS not to have heat because the heating has so many places it could have an air bubble and if you let the coolant get down to a certain level it will create air bubbles in the system. You'll need about a 2 gallons of 50/50 antifreeze. Does your heat work at highway speeds? If so, there is a cap to the system underneath the plastic cover that cover the whole engine, remove it to see the tube it should have a 10 or 12mm for an Allen wrench. Make sure the car is off and is cold. Jack it up put on jack stands so the front of the car is off the ground. this helps to bleed the system better. There is a another tube right by were you put the antifreeze. If you are looking at it from the front, it is to the left and should be sitting on the inside driver side fender it has a flat head plastic screw in it. Remove both the Allen and the screw. Make sure your antifreeze level is set at the cold level. Start the car. Turn the heat and fan to the highest it can go. Wait till it warms up then as soon as it bubbles over at the Allen head spot put the cap back on. Wear some gloves good possibility you will get burnt. Make sure that coolant in the reservoir is not getting low if it does go all the way down you will have to start over. Wait till the tube with the screw is spitting out a smooth steam of antifreeze and then cap it this were all the air comes out. you might need to do this a couple times to get all the air out, I did it with mine in 2 tries. Jacking the car at an angle seems to help.

2003 Lincoln LS V8 3.9. It was overheating. I replaced thermostat housing kit with thermostat and coolant reservoir. the coolant temperature gauge stops straight horizontal, at this time the car diagnostic...


I dont think the coolant is boiling, I think you have an air bubble in your system wich is causing a air lock and youll need it flushed out. Your reservior cap should be tight always.. never loose this is an air tight system and your allowing it to get air in it. I have a 2002 linc ls and just had to pay 1000.00 to replace the system because I let an air lock go for too long and had so much back pressure I blew up my reservior.

Car is overheating


When the car is completely cool,check the electric fan(s) for smooth rotation.

Clean/check/change the thermo sensor,contact and wire.

===

Excavate air pocket in coolant system / check for head gasket leak

This test will kill two birds with one stone.

===

MAKE SURE THE COOLANT SYSTEM and ENGINE IS COLD!

RAN THIS TEST IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA ONLY!

You will spill some coolant during this air pocket purge test.......BE KIND TO THE ENVIRONMENT and ANIMAL please clean up after the test!

===

Put the front end on a pair of ramp or park your car on a VERY STEEP HILL (radiator facing top of the hill) .

Top of the coolant reserve tank

Let it ran for 10-15 minutes.

Monitor for air pockets escaping from coolant reserve tank.

Small amount of bubbles is OK at 1-5 minute mark

After the thermostat open up (after 195 F warm up) at
5-12 minute mark or after high idle you should see less bubbles.

If you do not see any in rush of bubbles then your thermostat may be partially stuck or rusted badly inside the thermostat hosing.

Give the thermostat host few gentle taps.

If you see larger bubbles surfacing after 15 minutes then should do a hydrocarbon (HC) dye test to test for potential head gasket leak.

Let engine cold down and top off coolant reserve tank.

Start monitor for coolant lost

===

A coolant flush is require every 2 years or 24,000 miles.

I recommend the thermostat that has a relief pop-let to reduce the change of burst radiator and coolant hoses.

Make sure you get a new thermostat gasket,black RTV and fresh coolant for the job.
