My check engine symbol is on, and the change AC Filter indicator is on, but there is no indication about the engine temperature until the car runs hot. I am novice at car repair but great wtih instructions and could use some advice on things to check. And where to locate the items under the hood.

Check the degas bottle (aka overflow of expansion tank). There is a factory flaw that causes the bottle to crack along a seam. May leak coolant, may not, depending upon how high up the bottle it cracks (i.e., if it cracks above the "fill line" then it won't leak much if ever). But what it is guaranteed to do is allow air into the otherwise closed system, causing havoc with your thermostat operation and flow, particularly in the highest part of the cooling system: the heater core. A thermostat surrounded by air will not open properly and air pockets in the hoses can block flow. The system also relies upon vacuum to **** the coolant back into the engine when it cools off/condenses, and there can be no negative pressure when there is an air leak. Should have been a recall...despicable how many of these things they sell (for $151).

Where is the ac filter and how do i change it on my lincoln LS 2000 V8


The "AC Filter" refers to the Air Cleaner Filter. That is in the engine compartment in the air cleaner assembly. The cover is held on by a couple of clips. Undo the clips and remove the cover. Then you can remove the Air Filter and replace it with a fresh one. (Can be purchased at Walmart even.)

Lincoln LS 2000 V6 overheating after reparing intake manifold lea


Couple of items you need to check. Make sure that your radiator is flowing properly. Often after sitting dry, blockages harden up and flow less than before, overheat originally before repair can also free up debris inside engine and add to plugging of core. Make sure that fans are operating especially with ac on. If you did not change thermostat during repair, change it. Not often but they can sometimes partially open, restricting flow. Also make sure that coolant is at correct concentration (50/50) and that there is no air trapped in the system.

The coolant must have thickened during the 3 weeks it was not used. Try adding some distilled water. Also check for slackness in the fan belt. Finally clean your air filter too .............sodeep
