Can i run Lincoln 4.6 aviator without thermastat ?


You can run any car without the thermostat.. but the car is suppose to run with certain water temp. This is what the thermostat controlls. If you take it out check it by boiling water on your stove and If it does not open that is your problem.see if it open at 200* or less. use meat thermometer. If you take it out and the car still runs hot the problem is somewhere else. Like the electric fans are not running, The Water pump is going bad. loose fan belt not turning the pump, Something trash blocking air from radiator.. check all of these things. the car is running hotter something else is wrong. If you live in a really hot place you can buy a lower temp theromstat.. they come from 175*-210*. you really should run one.

Headlights taillights stay


it's running hot because of the battery. For example, some fuses are hot at all times, and some are hot manually with car running for instance. Try wiring the positive to a source that is hot only when the car is running.

Hondas are very tough cars and will run hot right up until a radiator hose ruptures. You need to make sure that there is not a problem.
When your Honda says it is hot, make sure the radiator fan is running. If not, it can be a bad fan or fan relay.
Next, turn on the heat full blast and make sure that you have allot of heat coming into the car. If not, even though your overflow tank has fluid in it, your radiator may be dry. This can happen if your radiator cap is bad. Check the fluid level in the radiator itself, but don't pull the cap until your car has cooled down at least an hour to reduce the risk of getting burned by steam.
If it stops reading HOT when you have full heat on it could be either the thermostat or a plugged radiator. Change the thermostat first since it is the cheapest fix.

Possibilities; thermostat, radiator cap and or fan belt that runs waterpump. I'd replace the thermostat and radiator cap and check the belts.

Car running hot


There is a level /float sensor inside the tank.

Wait until the engine is cold,empty the coolant tank and rinse.

Refill will 100% coolant to the COLD / COOL / LOW mark.
