These cars have a hydraulic cooling fan, and they can go bad.
The usual potential cooling problems apply, and the crazy hydralic drive just makes it more complicated. An electric fan is good or bad, but a hydralic fan can slowly loose the ability to spin fast enought to get the job done

Start simple. Check fluid. If the coolant is full, leave the cap off and start the car from COLD engine. Make sure you can see the fluid in the radiator and have someone else watch the gauge to ensure the car does not overheat. With car running when the gauge reads about half or a little less the coolant level should drop a bit when the thermostat opens. If you do not see this happen yours may be stuck shut.
If it does drop and the coolant is moving you should also have heat in the car. No heat is a stuck thermostat.
If you see bubbles in the radiator or if you smell exhaust in the radiator you may have a blown or leaking head gasket causing exhaust to enter the coolant and super heat it.

The reasons could be as under: 1. Less oil in the sump (unlikely as you may have checked it already). 2. Choke malfunctioning. 3. Maladjusted brakes. Check that the wheels rotate free when the engine is not running. 4. The fan not working properly. Running slow or intermittently. 5. The AC belt being loose. 6. Low tire pressure.

radiator is probably stopped up and when you allow coolant into the heater core which is a small radiator itself. it get sufficient releive to run normal. or your sender for the temp guage is bad and the car never is really overheating.

If you have no problem while its running after a jump, it is probably your battery...although 3 miles wouldn't be long enough to charge the battery so i would try getting the battery tested.

Adding transmission fluid to my 2001 Lincoln LS


Have the car on, in park, emergency brake on. Under the hood, red dip stick. From line to line should be 1qt. This is best done when the cars warm. Add until the 2nd line. Get in your car, hold the brake, slowly put it in reverse, neutral, drive, 3,2,1 then 2,3, drive, neutral, reverse, park. Repeat a couple times to move the oil around, and you're good to go.

2001 lincoln ls v6 engine overheats when air condition is on?


replace your thermostat and check the waterpump. The ac "pulls" heat out of the air in the car thereby making it cooler, at the expense of making your coolant heat up even quicker than normal. Try this to see what's going on.. Open the radiator cap, start the engine and wait until the car gets up to operating temperature. You should be able to see the water circulating through the radiator...if the fan comes on, and the water isn't moving, then replace the thermostat. If it still isn't moving after that, the water pump may be no good. Id bet on the thermostat. They're cheap and need to be replaced every so often. If the water is circulating and the fan never turns on, then you check the fan motor, relay, etc. There is also a temperature sensor located somewhere next to the thermostat. It's rare to have to replace that, but if it's faulty, then the fan won't turn on and thus overheating occurs. I am assuming here that if you drove your car up a hill without the ac on, it will overheat or get hotter than normal...So....go test your circulation first and let me know what you find. Oh yeah, when you do the circulation test, turn your heater in the car on full blast too...does it get hot inside the car?

This is Not a yes or no question, Maybe if you have not replaced the radiator and maybe not, it calls for speculation (anything is possible) I hope you have no more overheating issues But I can not say definitely that your car will never overheat again.Good Luck To You
