Hi.

If you have replaced already the thermostat and pump is OK, you may need to replace the fan motor. There is an issue with HCF motor that is affecting engine mounted on the 2001 model.
The service bulletin for 2001-2002 engines has been distributed in 2010, and may affect vehicles from more years. In fact there are several forums where users and mechanics report having same problem on 2000 LS. Here one.


Here the service bulletin.

Put a new hydrylic fan on 2001 Lincoln Ls now it still runs hot, fan isnt kicking on what could be the problem?


Yes we had a Saturn which we thought was running hot and the gauge was always in the centre or over but we had the fan checked and it was working. Our thermostat might of been faulty but we never had a overheating issue..My Mechanic said that we should get a coolant flush that might help.

You shouldn't hear the fan too much while in the car. It won't start to run until certain conditions are meet. Try leaving the A/C Off or put it on Auto and hit the A/C buttom off. I don't know how hot, the ambient air temp is, where you are.

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.
