Its likely you need a waterpump , it creates flow for ridding the engine of heat as well as heat to the heater core.

Do both cooling fans on 1999 lincoln continental have to work to keep from overheating

I'm not sure the thermostat is the problem. If the thermostat was stuck open the engine would not warm up and also not overheat.
If its stuck closed, the engine would warm up as well as the heater, then continue to the point of overheating.
If the cooling system is low on liquid coolant, or the water pump is not working, the coolant will not flow thru the heater and the sensor may not know to turn the fans on.

Overheating 2005 PT Cruiser

This sounds like a faulty thermostat. The fact that running the heater helps with the overheating is a common symptom of a faulty thermostat. Just follow the top radiator hose to where it hooks on the engine. The thermostat is located inside the housing that the hose attaches to. A thermostat is relatively inexpensive and easy to replace. Just make sure that all old gasket material is removed from the housing before installing new gasket and thermostat. Also, don't overtighten the bolts, the housing can be easily compromised if the bolts are overtightened. Hope this helped and best wishes.

2000 grand cherokee overheating heater blowing out cold air

Generally this condition is the result of coolant loss, or failed thermostat. If coolant goes below cylinder head level, or thermostat remains closed,heat will stop working. Do not drive with this condition as excessive heat buildup in cylinder head can and will do serious damage to heads and or head gasket.
Find out where leak is and correct it. Change thermostat as it may also be damaged. Check for excessive steam from tailpipe or miss in engine, as these symptoms indicate a cylinder head problem.
