One of two things the thermostat maybe sticking. the other is that is takes ford awhile to bleed all the air out of the system. i would try bleeding the coolant system, and while doing this the fan should engage as well.

I have a 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII. It was overheating and my diagnostics stated sensor had low input. I replaced the sensor and the thermostat. It idles fine with no overheating, but as soon as I go down the...


Carefully raise the engine RPM above 2000 and observe the Radiator hoses for collapse. Have your cap checked for holding pressure.

The electric fans usually are 2 speed units. Check with Autozone or Oreillys for the relays which switch to high speed. Some rely on a second temp sensor; you may have changed the dash gauge temp switch and not the fan speed temp switch.

Then if no success you need to get the Fan clutch checked with a timing light. The fan clutch is designed to lock at higher temps. It is suppose to slip in cold weather. A mechanic would take a timing light with a RPM scale and compare the crankshaft RPM with the fan RPM to see if the fan clutch is bad.

2000 lincoln ls v8 overheating again


Some cars have 2 water temperature sensors with one operating the cooling fan and the other operating dash indicators.

Since your A/C stopped working it sounds like the power may be off in a relay. Want to say go to reputable mechanic so you do not fry your engine.

You also do not want to be taken for an A/C recharge you may not need. Cooling fan should work whether A/C is off or on.

Some fans have 2 speeds so it is possible to need a replacement if only 1 speed works. You need someone to know the power routing. For instance, is the relay getting a signal from the temperature sensor? If the power is going to the relay, does it go to the fan? Is the fan bad on 1 speed or both speeds? This is independent of whether the A/C has a full charge.

Be careful of the spinning cooling fan blades if the fan turns on without warning.

My 96 thunderbird gettin hot


is your fan clutch kicking in? It could be bad. crab the fan blade and try to move it back and forth. If it moves more than minimal you will need to replace your fan clutch.

Overheating


When you mention the radiator having a hot upper in pipe and a cool bottom out pipe tells me that the coolant is not moving around the engine. This could be down to a water pump not working, blocked radiator, thermostat not opening. The bottom hose should be cooler than the top hose but once the engine is up to working temp which is around 85/90 degrees c for an audi the bottom still should be farly hot to touch. Hope this helps
