Was the cooling system purged/bled of air? on this engine u must do that, here is the procedure, if it still overheats after you get the air out then u most likely have a leaking engine cylinder head gasket, this is common on this car.

The generic method of bleeding air from the cooling system is to use a floor jack and raise the front of the car as high as poss, then fill the coolant recovery tank full and run the engine until it just starts to overheat, high end of normal zone on gauge, then shut the engine down and run cold water over the radiator core, this will self bleed the system and the coolant will be pulled from the recovery tank, repeat as necessary, never let the recovery tank run dry or more air will be pulled into the cooling systeml , if it still overheats then you need to have the head gaskets checked with a gas analyzer for hydrocarbons present in the radiator or recovery tank

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...

Suspect hydraulic driven main cooling fan not


the fan speed could be one problem...the other problem could be wth the radiatr cores being blocked..check whether the heat on your radiator is even front top to bottom and on all sides...if it is not, clean the radiator and check for the problem

My 2000 Lincoln LS V8 is overheating. I've replaced the thermostat and the fan is working properly. Water pump is fine too. Any other causes that I am missing?


Sometimes a vacuum leak can cause the engine to run lean and hot, Have Auto Zone run a free code check on the car to search for a stored trouble codes this may help.

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....

Overheating


there is a coolant cap on the overflow bottle check it for seal
i'd just replace it
also if you put the new thermostat in backward the overheating would be significant
