Posted by on

1 Answer

No

Thermostat & "o"ring

I would just try to get in there & separate
the housing & leave as much else alone
as possible

May be easier to get from the bottom

I have a 2004 V8 so I have different issues

Before you buy the thermostat, look at scan tool data
& coolant temp & remove the stat & check the temp
stamped on it,so you get the correct one

Then recheck your data under same run time,ambient
temp,etc, to compare new stat

Make sure you mix ONLY Zerex G-05 & Distilled Water
from the super market ---- NEVER TAP WATER IN
ANY COOLANT SYSTEM

You only getting 50 % out, with the radiator plug out,so
change every 3 years

I mix 60% coolant & 40% water

50/50 is okey

SOURCE: engine coolant thermostat/water outlet assembly replace for 2000 lincoln ls

First with the engine cool, drain some of the antifreeze from the radiator. Second, take the hose clamp off of the upper radiator hose on the engine side and slide the hose off the water neck, some antifreeze might spill out. Third, remove the two bolts that hold the water neck and remove the waterneck, some antifreeze may spill out. Fourth, remove the old thermostat and o-ring , clean the sealing surface and install the new thermostat and o-ring the same way it came out. Last just reverse the procedure to get it back together, tightening the two waterneck bolts to 18 ft. Lbs. Fill with 50/50 antifreeze and water start it up and check for leaks. And you are done. Should only take about 20-30 minutes

I have a2002 Lincoln ls 3.9 It started heating up on me so I changed the thermostat &the whole water outlet housing everything was fine but after about 15min of it being on it starts to overheat Help?


could be blocked radiator , head gasket, faulty fan hub if not electric
have a compression test done to eliminate head gasket and/or cracked head
if the overheating occurs at lights or in slow traffic then replace the fan hub
have a radiator shop check the flow rate of the radiator to check for blocked cores.

My lincoln ls, ran hot, I replace the theremostat, and now it keeps ejecting the coolant, what could that be?


If the thermostat wasn't seated properly in the housing, or the gasket got damaged or displaced it will cause a leak. Check at the site where the thermostat fits. Make sure the thermostat and gasket are seated correctly and the housing is bolted down properly. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN the housing or it could crack.

2000 lincoln ls 3.9 overheating


Do a radiator pressure test, tools can be purchased at the local auto parts store. It may be that tyou have a blown headgasket and it builds an airpocket below the thermostat and will insulate it and not allow it to open. Another way to test is to take off thermostat housing and pull thermostat and start engine but do not rev it up. Water must be to top of housing... In some cases if air bubbles appear it will mean blown head gasket... The problem with this is it may only happen when engine is at operating temperature. Car can be driven and warmed up in first method, pressure will always rise but if it rises quickly it would be head gasket.
