Question about Lincoln Mark VIII

1 Answer

I have the 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII with Over Heating Problem. I replaced Sensor which had low input and Thermostat. You stated that I have Blown Head Gasket. (emissionwiz) Would the motor run rough is this condition though? Also, when draining Anti Freeze water felt oily so this may make sense, but the car when driven runs like a raped ape, but overheats in 2-3 miles when warmed up. I was going to try the Water Pump next and then radiator. Is there a way to verify a Blown Head Gasket?

You should have found the oil floating on the top of the radiator, A compression check will tell you real fast if the head is blown and even tell you which piston it is, The exhaust should have steam in it. Hope this helps.

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.

Overheating problem


If the fans are electric fans, check or replace the fan electrical circuit and fan relay.

If fan is driven off the water pump, through a clutch, replace the clutch. Just because it turns, does not mean it has failed.

buy a set of factory manuals used. There is not just one picture.
the fuse box in the driving area is in the owners manual. The engine compartment diagram is in a book called Mark VIII Electrical Vacuum and Troubleshooting Manual.
