Those are pretty much generic. there are ptc and ntc meanig resistance goes up or down with temperature. most are the ones that go up with temperature. try an aftermarket guage manufacture sender you may need to install with a pipe bushing to make it fit the hole and you may have to change the wire connector to hook it up but it will work and be pretty close to the right reading on the guage

Possibly cracked/broken temperature sensor unit. Normally located in front of radiator/AC condensor. You can usually see it with the hood open in front of the radiator area bolted to the upper rad support or the center support.

Heat does not work in 2001 lincoln continental. what parts and how much to replace?

Hello, I was going to pass on this question but I have several solutions for you to try before buying this car.

The first idea is for you to have someone grab the water heater hoses after the heat has been set and the engine is at normal operating temperature. The idea here is that there is a water flow valve that puts the hot water through the heater unit and when both heater hoses are hot, it indicates the water is flowing and something else is wrong. You check that by handling those 2 water hoses around the heater coil.(It disappears in the Firewall)

Next, the fancy Digital dash that most Lincolns use is capable of self-diagnosis. If you can get a free check of this Digital dash unit at a Dealer, it will tell you what part is broken. All that is needed to do this is a sequence of button pushing on the correct keys in a certain order. It takes less than 5 minutes and can be done in a Parking lot or Writeup bay.

These Codes are in a different group of codes than those on the rest of the car. So the person would need to know what the self-diagnostic report means. It is something that can be done as a courtesy.

Temperature gage reading okay,coolling fan not working on 1995 lincoln continental mark VIII

You have a separate sensor for the fan. But check for blown fuse or bad relay first. Both should be identified in the owners manual

Where is the temperature sensor under the hood?...the temp guage in my car keeps going to hot even though the radior and thremostat was changed.

For 1997 Lincoln Continental 4.6L SFI DOHC 8cyl the Coolant Temperature Sensor is located: Under hood, passenger side, front upper engine area, mounted in intake manifold near water outlet.

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this).

Hi, I have a 1995 lincoln continental and it is really really low to the ground. It sounds like the it's rising when I start the car but the rear of the car never rises.

it has an air suspention, and they are known to leak after a couple of years. they are not cheap to replace. this happened in my town car and i just replaced the airbags with springs. sorry
