2002 Lincoln LS Check engine temp and reduce speed came across screen, car started reducing speed then died NowThe coolant keeps disappearing its not leaking anywhere. What could be the problem?

Coolant just does not disappear!!!!!!! Either you have a leak somewhere or perhaps one of your engine head gaskets is shot and leaking coolant into the oil passages. Check your oil for color. If it has the color of a brown mud that is the cause of your problem.

Re leaks check all of your heater and engine hoses and clamps. Do not overlook your radiator cap nor your expansion tank for leaks.

Ok ..continuing to have a overheating prob. w/a 2005 Lincoln LSV8...refilled the coolant tank (used mostly water) started her up and let it idle for 15-20 min. it did lose coolant from some where under the...

First there is but one water pump, next did you bleed the air out of the cooling system as directed in the factory manual? If you did then the engine may have a leaking head gasket. Water pump picture below. You may also have a leak in the recovery tank, but that would not cause the overheating unless you let it run dray. This engine is very easy to damage if overheated, think you should let an expert look at this problem.

Don't know what system is on a lincoln. If it has a pressure cap can be plastic welded. If itsonly an expansion tank epoxy resin should do. Hope this helps

How difficult is it to replace coolant resesvoir on a 2001 Lincoln LS with V8 engine

Typically reservoirs have a few bolts on the top and /or sides and a push in mount on the bottom and a hose going from the bottom to the Radiator as well as an overflow hose on the top. Remove those bolts and pull up on the tank before you take off the bottom hose. Now have the new tank close while you remove the bottom hose, then quickly put the hose on the new tank. You can also use a pair of vice grips to pinch off the bottom hose so you don't lose too much coolant. I suggest you put a pan under the vehicle to catch the coolant that leaks out. Reverse procedure to re-install tank, making sure you get that push mount shaft into the right hole so the bolts will line up.
