The lincoln requires using a vacume tool to put the coolant back into the system this removes air from the cooling system which causes air locks and overheating. This is the first place to start. Then testing the electronics will be required to test the cooling fans and related electronics.

    same thing happened to my 2001 ls. I changed the thermastat but it still overheated. ended up having to replace the cooling fan. You should also have your radiator cap pressure checked. Yes i know it sounds crazy but there is actuall a tool that mechanics use to tell if your cap is not holding pressure up to specs. If it is not then your car will run hot all the time.

The heating coil is probably getting plugged up. You may have heat at idle or slow speeds, but once you get going, there is not enough coolant going through it to stay warm. Get the system flushed or replace the heating coil.

Does the thermostat effect the heating on a car

yes The heat is transfered from the hot antifreeze and if the thermastat is stuck open the antifreeze won't get hot enough.

I take it you checked the antifreeze level. right. Also could be the fins on the waterpump are gone and it might need a water pump. This would cause the fluid to not circulate properly and could cause low heat levels too.

1998 ford tarus over heating

There is a lot more to the cooling system than the radiator and thermostat. 97 and 98 taurus' are prone to cooling fan failure. They also have issues with the coolant turning to a rusty colored sludge that can plug the radiator, and it let go long enough can eat the fins off the impeller in the water pump even cause it to break free from the shaft.

Have you checked the heater core hoses? If they are not "hot" the heater core needs to be replaced

Posible thermastat sticking closed. If thermastat doesn't open heated water is trapped in the engine causing it to run hot and not allowing hot water to travle to the heater core when called for.
