On a 1999 lincoln continental 4.6 liter 32 valve v8, where is the sensors located are there only one? Problem with coolant coming out of coolant overflow tank?

Their are 2 sensors 1 is the ECT this one tells the computer the engine temp so it can adjust fuel and air spark advance ect .
The other one tells the gauge inside what to read hot or cold .
However the sensors are not your problem .You have some kind of blockage in the cooling system .Eighter the thermostat the radidator heater core or mabey a problem with the water pump or a combination of them .
The best thing to do at this point it remove the Tstat see how it runs with out it see if the heat works inside .
The problem is this isn't the kind of thing you can put a bandaid on .
Being 99 unless the system has been serivced over the years then now someone has to pay the price..
You more then likely need to rebuild the entire system thats radiator heater core water pump hoses T stat back flush block and antifreeze with new radiator cap .

Overheating coolant boiling out into reserve tank

you have a blown head gasket.. doesn't have to have coolant in the oil for a blown head gasket... if hoses are rock hard when running then you have exhaust leaking into the coolant via a blown head gasket...

Do not overheat but shoot coolant out the reserved tank

I have found that this happens when I over fill the overflow tank. It should be about one third full to allow redraw of fluid when the car cools. Also check the state of the radiator cap. I would replace it if it looks corroded because if the over flow valve here is no good you would lose coolant back to the overflow tank and quickly run low on coolant, not to mention less cooling at lower pressure.

My car runs good at idle but overheats when i get on the highway.i have flushed it and put a new thermostat but still water overflows from my cap on the overflow tank,could it be my cap

Sounds like the head gasket is blown and pushing the coolant out of the radiator. Here is an article that will help you find out the real cause, though.
