Youre using more power during highway drives, therefore more vaccum. check your vaccum lines for leaks which may cause the vent door to close/or open which may be causing your problem. if your temp gauge shows the needle in the center of the gauge while driving on highway, your thermostat is fine. check vaccum.

Why does my fan run at high speeds for my 2005 ls lincoln


If you mean the radiator fan, the switch in the engine block that tells the drive train engine module when to shut down is probably bad. This switch/sensor probably needs to be replaced. It is located near the water pump and thermostat.

2001 lincoln ls v6 engine overheats when air condition is on?


replace your thermostat and check the waterpump. The ac "pulls" heat out of the air in the car thereby making it cooler, at the expense of making your coolant heat up even quicker than normal. Try this to see what's going on.. Open the radiator cap, start the engine and wait until the car gets up to operating temperature. You should be able to see the water circulating through the radiator...if the fan comes on, and the water isn't moving, then replace the thermostat. If it still isn't moving after that, the water pump may be no good. Id bet on the thermostat. They're cheap and need to be replaced every so often. If the water is circulating and the fan never turns on, then you check the fan motor, relay, etc. There is also a temperature sensor located somewhere next to the thermostat. It's rare to have to replace that, but if it's faulty, then the fan won't turn on and thus overheating occurs. I am assuming here that if you drove your car up a hill without the ac on, it will overheat or get hotter than normal...So....go test your circulation first and let me know what you find. Oh yeah, when you do the circulation test, turn your heater in the car on full blast too...does it get hot inside the car?

I have 2002 lincoln lse v8 when driving on highway no over heating problems ,going slow inside town start overheating what could be the problem tkanks


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.

1998 FORD CONTOUR OVER HEATING WHEN DRIVING ON HIGHWAY. IDLE IN DRIVE NO PROBLEM, CITY DRIVING NO PROBLEM. HAVE FLUSHED RADIATOR, CHANGED THERMOSTAT, JUST PURCHASED WATER PUMP TO DO TONIGHT. ANY...


I doubt its the water pump if it only overheats on the highway. City driving is the most heat producing in most cars. I would look for an airflow problem to the radiator. Do you have anything mounted on the front of the car that could disturb airflow such as an air-dam, bug shield or "bra" that isn't original equipment? Have you checked the fan mounted to the radiator to make sure it's working and spinning the right way towards the rear of the engine bay

Usually when water pumps go bad there is leakage from the bearing weep hole, though I have seen pumps with the impeller worn away by stop-leak type additives. It doesn't hurt to check but getting to the pump on many cars is a challenge.

I have a 2002 Lincoln LS. I've owned it for


I have put my lincoln ls in shop 5 times almost once year for over heating.. first 3 times they replaced the fan motor and fan.. worked for few months and went out again in 2 years have had 3 fan motors. Finally over heated again and they said it was radiator.. so for 800.00 they put in new radiator and as wife was driving car home it overheated.. OMG how insane and they would not refund.. so they took car back in and said it was the water pump.. guess what the so called water pump is really a Hydraulic pump.. so they changed it, fan motor, and new radiator..
Now have all this new and one year exactly car is over heating again.... Solution Get rid of the LS or all us complain to lincoln and for this car is a LEMON....

2001 nissan maxima overheating problem persists


It sounds like the the thermostat that was replaced is probably faulty. This being the cheapest and easiest to do I would start there. I can't reply about the air pockets. I have never heard of that before.
