There are several things to look at. The engine could have incorrect ignition timing or excessive play in the distributor shaft. It could have a bad rotor, distributor cap or wires. Your spark plugs may not be gapped properly. Bad carburetor or fuel injection system. It could be a bad coil that works intermittently. Did you check the transmission fluid level? The fuel filter could be clogged. Last but not least the car could have low compression. I would have the engine computer analyized so that you could narrow the problem down quickly.

Lincoln ls car is still running hot after changing thermostat


First when car is running hot stop and pop the hood check and see if the electric cooling fans are running. Second have your radiator cap checked, replace if bad. If neither or these are the issue, with the engine cold start it up and remove the radiator cap. It will take a couple minutes for the engine to warm up enough to open the thermostat. After it gets warm enough that your thermostat opens, (5 to 10 minutes) you should see the fluid in the radiator start to circulate. If this doesn't happen your water pump is out and needs to be replaced. Back to the first thing if your fans aren't kicking on check all your fuses in your engine compartment first. If you narrow down the problem to one of these and need more assistance, just reply to this comment and I will help you further.

Small block chevy 327 - water in oil. Car hadn't run in 15 years, started it, found oil discolored and foamy. Changed oil, added coolant, restarted. Hard to start didnt want to crank over, smoked blue,...


take out all the spark plugs and put a radiator pressre tester on the radiator and pressurize the system, then inspect each spark plug hole for coolant. you will find out what cylinder or head will need service. How did this car run before sitting? Blue smoke is not good, although it doesnt sound like you have run it long enough to verify any real cyl problems. if its smoking it may be overhaul time. and the complete engin ewill need disassembly.
