Question about 1986 Lincoln Town Car
If you have no leaks and the water pump is pumping ok,then you have a semi clogged radiator.A new replacement at advance is $99.00.This will solve your problem.The sludge buildup is hidden in the radiator and has plugged up a few veins in the radiator causing in proper circulation of the antifreeze water mixture 50/50.This will cause it to overheat in warmer weather and a lot of stop and go traffic.Good luck from here.

The water pump is located on the front of the block. The fan is attached. Usually it is replaced, not repaired. A shop estimate is 2.5 hours and at least $64 in parts. To do it yourself hours(?) parts and tools approximately $215. If you go to www.autopartswarehouse.com you can get an estimate and a parts list for a repair. Also, you can see a picture of the water pump. If you replace the water pump consider changing the timing chain and tension devices at the same time. Since the water pump must be removed to change the timing chain. But, before you take that path consider this. My new, "Replacement Brand", coolant temperature sensor was faulty. It gave me a very high temperature reading, at the top of normal. But the water temperature going in and out of the engine was normal. This also happened with a second new sensor. Also, you should be running 50% coolant along with 50% water in the radiator? And, check the coolant recovery container to see if the radiator cap is working properly?
