Question about 2000 Lincoln LS
My 2000 Lincoln LS is overheating during a very short drive period. 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.
Replace the air filter and then hit your status button when it gets to ac filter press and hold reset until you see life go to 100 percent as far as the overheating YOU MUST BLEED THE COOLANT SYSTEM i had this same problem and it took me like six months to figure it out so i know your frustration you can find full instructions on how to do this at lincolnvscaddilac.com aswell as many other tips and people who know what they are doing with these cars who can help

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).
