Car overheats, belt doesn't turn when engine running but moves by hand, the fluid level is still full, thermostat?

Do both cooling fans on 1999 lincoln continental have to work to keep from overheating

I'm not sure the thermostat is the problem. If the thermostat was stuck open the engine would not warm up and also not overheat.
If its stuck closed, the engine would warm up as well as the heater, then continue to the point of overheating.
If the cooling system is low on liquid coolant, or the water pump is not working, the coolant will not flow thru the heater and the sensor may not know to turn the fans on.

My 1996 cadillac sts is overheating.. ook how do i get air out of it

There is no need to purge the air out of the cooling system as it is self purging on the northstar engine.
The most common overheating problem with the Northstar engine is a blocked purge line. It's job is to purge air out of the cooling system.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank or trace the hose further back until you locate the blockage.
