Sounds more like a head leak to me. Check your oil and antifreeze for muddiness or oil for a coffee and cream color.

How do i change 92 chev luminas heater core

It is probably not the heater core do to most times when the heater core goes bad it stars putting water into the interior of the car. It may be the heater core supply valve or the blend door actuator is not working. Try warming the Vehicle, then carefully feel the heater hoses, are they both hot? If one is cooler than the other, You need to flush the core, or do a replacement job on the heater core. Also if the system has a heat control valve on the heater hose, make sure it is working! Also check the thermostat, and the temperature blend door, thats under the dash, in the heater plenum. You can flush this yourself, buy the prestone flush kit and install the tee in the heater return line. Disconnect the heater hose at the waterpump, clamp the hose in back of the tee you installed and back flush till it runs clear.20 mins or so.

I have a 93 stealth keeps running hot my mac. Said it was waterpump so had him change it I changed redaitor . And thrumosat. All hoses I do have fans wire full blast. Is that bad just didn't want it to...

Good idea on the fans. Keep it that way till you fix the problem. Won't hurt anything, just may shorten fan life-but a new fan is much less expensive than a new engine.
Watch the temp gauge on your dash. The thermostat should open as it warms up, before the gauge gets up to half-way. You can tell when the thermostat starts to open-the upper radiator hose will start feeling hot, or at least start warming up. You will get a rough idea if the thermostat is working properly. By the time engine is at normal operating temperature, the thermostat should be fully open and the hose will feel quite warm. If the hose is still cool when engine is at operating temp., the thermostat may be opening too late, as in wrong thermostat. Not very likely, but always possible.
How did the shop check the head gaskets? Did they do a compression test? With new pump, new radiator, new hoses...should be good, but still runs hot? Any bubbling in your overflow tank? You may want to consider having a block test done, where they check for exhaust gases in the coolant. That would be a head gasket leak causing hot running condition. Maybe the shop checked the gaskets this way, or maybe they missed something? About the only other thing I could think of would be a coolant circulation problem inside the engine, a restriction or something, that an engine flush might clear up. A shop could do a reverse flush of the engine if there is a circulation problem.
Good luck, and keep us posted on your progress. Does your mechanic have any other suggestions?

F3LY-6328608-A does this part # work on a 1996 Mark VIII

If you are referring the spring for the fuel door it should work, although it is off a Mark VII and not a Mark VIII. From the information I found they are supposed to be the same length.

I need a diagram on how to remove a ac compressor on a 1996 lincoln mark VII

There's not really a diagram for the actual removal and installation. A good repair manual might list steps like these: First, your system needs to be purged of the freon. Next, unplug the AC clutch/pulley assembly at the front of the compressor. Remove the belt, then the AC lines on the compressor (usually in the back), then unbolt the AC from any mounting bracket(s) and remove. To avoid having to press on and off the clutch/pulley assembly you might want to make sure you're buying a complete compressor assembly. Read and follow those directions concerning oil for the compressor. After installing the new AC, reconnect the lines with new "O" rings. Most if not all compressor manufacturers will not honor any warranty unless you change out your orifice tube (also called an expansion valve) and accumulator (aka the dryer) at the same time. Recharge the system with the appropriate amount and type of freon, most likely R-134a.

1996 sunfire overheating replaced thermostat, waterpump and heater core. Fan is working after cleaning relay. Still overheating ?

Does the top rubber engine to radiator hoes get hot? If yes then the new thermostat is working. Does the bottom return hose from the radiator back to the engine also get hot? If yes then the pump is OK. If not then there is a blockage in the system and this will need to be flushed out from both the radiator and the engine block using a high pressure hose. Does the radiator fan come on promptly. It should start before the bottom return hose becomes hot. If not then the temperature sensor (different from the temperature sender to the dash display) maybe at fault. Your relay maybe fine but it is the sensor that actually triggers the fan to come on. It may be just bad connection so try wiggling the wires to it when the engine has got warm. The temperature sensor is also important to let the engine computer management system (ECU)know that the engine has reached operating temperature. A failed sensor not only allows overheating but means that the ECU thinks the engine is still cold and runs the engine on a rich mix. Have you noticed lumpy idling when hot and excessive fuel consumption recently? these are symptomatic of a failing sensor.

Help.My 1998 Mark v111 after driving 18 to 20 miles will overheat.It can idle in my driveway for over an hour and all is fine.Car just had a complete, new radiator, hoses, thermostat and flush.Car has no...

sounds like you may have air in the system. i know you said you don't but i'd double check that. Also when idleing there is no load on the engine, so the system doesn't have to work very hard to keep up and the keep the engine cool. Check the operation of your water pump. A faulty water pump can sometimes keep up at low rpms but not under load. However the heat not working, still leans towards air in the system.

Heater is blowing air but does not get hot

I looked at my friends 1997 mark viii for no heat. Found info on fixing it online. It involved taking the dash completely apart. Like six hours. The problem most lincolns had, seemed to be black plastic lever for mix door cracked. You can not see this lever, but can access the gray lever it works with, I moved the gray lever and got heat.He Got lucky and found his problem was different. Disconnect battery for a minute or so and this should reset computer for climate control. Seems if mix door was not moving due to some sort of computer glitch. Has heat for now. Hope this can help someone and its not a broke lever.
