My 2001 Lincoln Ls is overheating


Overheating Due to corrosion block in Water Pump on Erratic engine coolant temperature or intermittent overheating can be caused by corrosion inside the water pump. ...Either condition reduces coolant circulation resulting in engine overheating.

I have a 2000 lincoln Ls V8 3.9.. The coolant boils, i relpaced the water pump as well as the thermostat. What causes the coolant to boil??


1st, test the water pump and make sure with the belt off, that it turns freely now that you've installed it. Sometimes the impeller is not pressed on completely, and these don't turn properly.

Maybe you did this but just incase:

Always freespin anything installed , IE: water pump, oil pumps, alternator, generators, camshafts, crankshafts, etc., before moving to the next step.

2nd. Verify the belt installation. With todays serpentine belts, a wrong turn may cause the pump to run backwards, but seem correct. There should be a specific diagram under the hood or on the fender.

3rd. If the Belt's OK, Pump's OK, and you have properly installed the new Thermostat. (I have seen them installed upside down and they won't work that way.) If you filled it properly, making sure it was 100% full, then you may be dealing with a blown headgasket, cracked head, or a cracked cylinder wall.

I hope this helps & good luck!

I have a 2000 Lincoln LS. I've changed the thermostat, and replaced the hoses but my car is still overheating. Is there something I might be overlooking?


Make sure your cooling fan kicks on.
Otherwise, it sounds like a possible leak...maybe a weeping water pump or a leak in the heater core.

Hope this helps...

2000 lincoln ls v8 overheating again


Some cars have 2 water temperature sensors with one operating the cooling fan and the other operating dash indicators.

Since your A/C stopped working it sounds like the power may be off in a relay. Want to say go to reputable mechanic so you do not fry your engine.

You also do not want to be taken for an A/C recharge you may not need. Cooling fan should work whether A/C is off or on.

Some fans have 2 speeds so it is possible to need a replacement if only 1 speed works. You need someone to know the power routing. For instance, is the relay getting a signal from the temperature sensor? If the power is going to the relay, does it go to the fan? Is the fan bad on 1 speed or both speeds? This is independent of whether the A/C has a full charge.

Be careful of the spinning cooling fan blades if the fan turns on without warning.
